Qing Dao Restaurant is a shady looking Chinese restaurant with dirty, dimly lit seating area in the back and a display area in the front where they sell baked goods.

Restaurant Review: Ultra Spicy House

Details: Located at 44-09 Kissena Blvd, Flushing, NY 11355. A BeyondMenu site can be found here https://www.beyondmenu.com/50489/flushing/ultra-spicy-flushing-11355.aspx

Score: 4.5/10

Ultra Spicy is yet another numbing spicy place in Flushing that is all too trendy among Chinese restaurants. This place wasn’t great and I definitely don’t recommend it to people who don’t speak Mandarin Chinese.

Restaurant Review: The Best Pizza $1.25 Slice

Details: Located at 748 9th Ave, New York, NY 10019. A claimed Yelp page can be found at https://www.yelp.com/biz/1-dollar-pizza-new-york

This place sells slices for $1.25… which is dumb because if you go one block up you can get a slice of similar quality for $1.00. Make no mistake, both places are shitty. The slices are relatively cheap though.

In other words, go to the other place one block north and get another shitty slice for twenty-five cents less.

Supermarket Review: Amish Market

Details: Located at 731 9th Ave, New York, NY 10019. Official site is https://amishfinefood.com/

Came here to try their hot buffet line. It’s about ten dollars per pound. All I have to say is avoid this hot buffet. It’s pretty awful and I couldn’t finish what I bought. I’m pretty sure they just serve what’s left over from yesterday or the week before. It’s not fresh at all.

Soft Drink Review: Sangaria White Grape Drink

WP_20180203_003

Details: This drink is made by Sangaria whose official English site is http://sangaria.com/ I’m not sure the drink is listed on this site. I bought a small bottle for about three dollars in New York City.

This drink was damn awful. One of the worst things I’ve ever tasted. Do not buy this shit.

I’m trying to think about who’d enjoy this, but the only answer I can think of is someone who grew up drinking this crap. A person’s upbringing is a powerful thing and can brainwash someone into believing things that are not true or liking things that are shit. That’s the only way that I can imagine someone like this shit. Maybe if you like wine, you’d like this… except that it’s sweet. It’s sweet in a bad way with a weird after taste.

Overall, avoid this shit.

Restaurant Review: Highwater

Details: Located at 34-20 Broadway, Astoria, NY 11106. The official site is https://www.thehighwaternyc.com/

Came here on a Saturday night with some friends. Ordered the Taro Fries (cost $9) with the Pork Belly Buns (cost $14). The fries were pretty shitty. The pork belly buns were okay, but they were tiny, way to small to cost fourteen dollars. If you’re going to order food, then the coconut shrimp looked decent. A friend ordered that.

I know they serve different things during brunch, but I came for dinner.

Service was fine. It was a hot day and they did not have any air conditioning. That sucked.

Overall, if you come here for food, prepare to be disappointed. It’s over priced and portions are small. This is a good place for drinks and nothing else.

Restaurant Review: Red 58

Details: Located at 158 W 58th St, New York, NY 10019. Official site is http://red58ny.com/

What a shitty restaurant. Red 58 is the kind of restaurant that feels like it was opened by two frat brother with rich parents. One day, these two frat brother were sitting around and thought to themselves,” what if we open a bar/restaurant?” And then they did. But they didn’t know how to cook, so they hired a mutual friend who dropped out of culinary school and hired one of their Russian ex-girlfriends to be the waitress/bartender. Ask mommy and daddy for a little interior decorating investment and voilà, you have Red 58.
