Hole in the wall inside Kam Fung mall

Ive been several times. Its not as small as you think, there are atleast 10 tables or more. The prices are soo cheap its crazy, and the food is not bad. I usually get the bbq pork on rice, or sometimes this soup with bbq pork and yellow noodles, both are about 5$.

Moonshine BBQ

This is what happens to all these BBQ places I find, they start off strong, then get lazy and start taking shortcuts and the food suffers!

Korean food update

Ive been to many of them and Hwang Kum is the best one. Shabu shabu was pretty decent before but the head chef left a month or two ago, all the other ones Ive tried are pretty horrible, Ganadara is ok but mainly because its cheap compared to the others. Im pretty familiar with korean food as my girlfriend comes from and lives in Korea so trust me.. I havent tried Omma, Atti or Maison seoul though all of which I heard from other people as being good choices. 5000 ans is garbage and maison bulgogi is not run by koreans so dont go there..

Moonshine BBQ - new resto

Glad to hear they offer sandwiches now but using POM bread is just awful. That bread is poison, makes me feel horrible when I eat it. Its the equivalent of using processed cheese.
Do they only offer sandwiches at lunch?

Hahah ya you gotta love that. I wrote a bad review on one place that did exactly that, and by the next day 3 more of their friends wrote a positive review to make up for my bad review. Pretty pathetic..

I tried the all you can eat promotion at a la saj about a week after first trying it, and it was very disappointing. The owner needs to stick to his roots and just serve syrian inspired wraps. The non syrian ones I tried were badly executed, and some included ingredients that should never be used, like canned tuna and processed cheese. I didnt have the heart to tell him what I thought because he was just so nice to me. I hope he reads this and takes my advice because I really hope he succeeds.

Its really not bad at all. If i had to choose where to go though Id probably choose rubs and dinette first, never tried diablo, blackstrap was a disaster when I went and havent been to bofinger since it first opened. The quality of the food is by no means bad though.My only concern is if they will go downhill after about a month or two like most of these other places. I find that most restaurants here are at their best the first couple months they are open but then get lazy and their standard of quality diminishes.

Yes I tried it, wrote a little something about in the openings 2013 thread I believe. Basically its not bad at all, great if you live in that area (since theres not much else to eat around there), but I personally enjoy those types of meats in a sandwich which they do not offer. Its worth a try if you live near by but its not worth going out of your way for imo..

I tried it the other day. Ya you do basically only get chicken I believe for 10.99$. I got the brisket plate combo. Cost me 20$, came with a drink, I chose tater tots for my side, and they included corn bread (not sure if everything comes with it or they made a mistake)Service was prompt, food was not bad at all considering the location. Portions were big. My only complaint was that they dont offer sandwiches. Id much prefer a bbq brisket sandwich or pulled pork sandwich rather than just loose meat on the plate, but that could just be me. I went with several friends, they all had no complaints except that the portions were too big. Although one friend got this tater tot poutine that was topped off with some chili and orange cheddar, seemed like a good idea until it got soggy and just looked like a pile of vomit by the end. Its definetly a good addition to the area which is lacking is decent food options, but dont think I would return, only because its not too close to me and not so reasonably priced.

Really? I was extremely not impressed with that place when I tried it . Their homemade noodles were like overcooked spaghetti..

Best time to get a guaranteed bar seat at Kazu?

I agree , cost me 40$ (tax and tip included) for that tuna salmon bowl and a shrimp burger at lunch.. And theres not much tuna or salmon in there..

I went last week for lunch for the first time in a few months and the whole kitchen staff was different, the main cook looked indian or something, anyway it just wasnt the same. portions are smaller and food was not executed as well. I left disappointed, and not sure Id go back. Then again Ive been 50+ times so I guess im just sick of it..

The duck leg was quite good, the sandwich was a little worse than the first time I had it, portion seemed a bit smaller , meat was a tad dry and the donut/bread was slightly stale. Overall though I like it. They were nice and gave me a free maple float for waiting so long. Unfortunately I didnt enjoy it at all, most likely because I dont drink soda. I ended up just grabbing a spoon and eating just the ice cream.
And once again the truck next to it (st viateur) got no business at all.

I could easily eat 2-3 actually.. It was a decent pile of meat but for some reason not so filling. I was starving though when I had it.
