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 trash. The slices are relatively cheap though.

In other words, go to the other place one block north and get another bad 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.

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 trash. That’s the only way that I can imagine someone like this stuff. 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.
