Bubble Tea Review: Anda Cafe

Details: Located in Hong Kong Market Food Court at 37-11 Main St, Flushing, NY 11354. Official site is https://andacafeusa.com/

I came here and ordered the Iron Goddess Milk Foam. Iron goddess is a kind of oolong tea. It was okay. Just another average bubble tea place. They have trouble speaking English here so be prepared for that.

Score: 6/10


Restaurant Review: Peter Luger Steakhouse


Details: Located at 178 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11211. Official site is https://peterluger.com/

Score: 7/10

Peter Luger Steakhouse is an institution in New York City. It’s been around a long time and set the standard for New York City steakhouses. I came by with muted expectations and got exactly what I expected. Peter Luger is a decent steakhouse with mediocre sides and decent prices considering the product they sell and what their competitors price their steaks at.

Restaurant Review: Fuddruckers

Details: Located at 350 Trolley Line Blvd, Mashantucket, CT 06338. Official site is https://order.fuddruckers.com/merchants/106970?order_type=pickup

Fuddruckers is a chain of fast food restaurants that mostly makes burgers. They also have other sandwiches, desserts and salads.

I got the bourbon burger with fries. It was okay. What was nice and also kind of gross was that they had all the condiments and sauces on the side for customers to get. That means you can get as much as you want… but each customer can get their grubby little hands on them and contaminate the whole lot of it.

The total price was somewhere between ten to fifteen dollars. It’s kind of expensive and priced in the same range as places like Five Guys. It was a decent burger, but too expensive for what they sold. Five Guys is better in my opinion and the serving size at Five Guys is larger.

Overall, this place was okay, but you’re better off going to Five Guys or some place superior to Five Guys.

Score: 6.4/10


Restaurant Review: Rainmaker Buffet

Details: Located at 350 Trolley Line Blvd, Mashantucket, CT 06338. Official site is https://www.foxwoods.com/festival-buffet/

Score: 6.9/10

Foxwoods is getting lots of competition. There are a bunch of newer casinos opening up that are closer to the major metropolitan areas. Foxwoods needs to compete. To do so, they are renovating various things, from their poker room to the buffet. After some time, their new buffet finally opened and it is merely slightly better than it was before.

Snack Review: Samyang Carbo Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen


Details: The company’s official site is https://www.samyangfoods.com/eng/index.do

Samyang’s Carbo Hot Chicken Flavor Ramen combines the ridiculously hot flavor of their spicy ramen with powdered cheese. The result is a cheesy, burning hot bowl of stir fried noodles.

This stuff is hot, which is the worst part about it. You can’t really taste the cheese. Personally, I hold back on using the whole packet because the cheesy part is pretty good.

Overall, it’s kind of a waste to mix any other flavors along with the spiciness of Samyang’s spicy ramen. That stuff is just too spicy to be able to enjoy the taste of anything other than the spice. You either buy some cheesy ramen or you buy the spicy ramen, not both.

Score: 5.9/10
