This is one of the worst things I’ve ever eaten. I know protein bars are supposed to be healthy and things that are good for you are supposed to taste bad, but this was terrible. I’d avoid this like the plague and opt for the better tasting Clif bar instead. This is also usually more expensive than competing health conscious snack bars, which doesn’t make any sense since it tastes like trash.

This was really disappointing. Gom Tang is a Korean soup made from bone broth, like tonkatsu ramen broth. It’s supposed to have an almost creamy mouthfeel, with a very subtle taste. This ramen captures none of that. The noodles were too thin and kind of crap. The broth just tasted like your average, cheapest priced ramen, except that Paldo ramen generally cost more than the cheapest priced stuff. Avoid this.

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.
