Restaurant Review: Sakagura

Details: Located at 211 E 43rd St, New York, NY 10017. The official site is http://www.sakagura.com/

I’ve never walked out of a tapas place completely satisfied. Not European tapas, American tapas, Asian tapas, or any kind of tapas. It’s mostly because tapas — at least in New York City — generally cost a lot of money for a little bit of food. I always walk out of tapas restaurants with an empty wallet and mostly empty stomach. The same was true of Sakagura.

Restaurant Review: Ming Xing B.B.Q.

Details: Located at 35-14 Farrington St, Flushing, NY 11354. I couldn’t find an official site so here’s the yelp page: https://www.yelp.com/biz/ming-xing-bbq-flushing-2

Ming Xing BBQ is a place specializing is Xi’an barbecue skewers. Their twist is that you get to cook it yourself at your table. I usually find communal cooking with friends to be a fun activity and it was pretty fun here despite the many times we burned our hands.

Restaurant Review: Prince Tea House

Details: Located at 36-39 Prince St, Flushing, NY 11354. I couldn’t find and official site so here’s their yelp page: https://www.yelp.com/biz/prince-tea-house-flushing-2

Prince Tea House is a dessert and tea place that leans towards Asian flavors. I’ve walked by a couple of times and usually, this place is packed. During peak hours, this place is usually full and you’re going to have to wait on a line.

Restaurant Review: Quantum Leap

Details: Located at 226 Thompson St, New York, NY 10012. Official site is http://www.quantumleapnewyork.com/

Quantum Leap is essentially a compromise between me and me vegan friends. Some of them at least. Other vegan friends have questioned whether the food here is truly vegan and have since, never returned. As an omnivore, I could care less.

Restaurant Review: Indian King Biryani House

Details: It is the food cart on the northwestern most corner of the block of 140 Broadway,
New York, NY 10005. Couldn’t find an official site so here’s an unclaimed yelp page: https://www.yelp.com/biz/indian-king-biryani-house-new-york?osq=food

I normally don’t write any post for halal food carts, but this was identifiable enough to write something. Got the chicken over rice for five dollars, which was fine but better priced than most places by a dollar. Notable is that a lot of people waiting on the line with me got other stuff. For instance, they have a Chinese style chicken over rice and other biryanis. I think they use a different sauce for those. Those things seemed fairly popular, but they do cost extra, like eight or nine dollars.

Score: 4.5/10

Restaurant Review: Hibachi Express 1

Details: Located at 4 Cortlandt St, New York, NY 10007. Official site is http://www.hibachiexpressny.nyc/index.html

Came here for a quick lunch. Got the chicken which came with rice and cooked vegetables. It’s pretty much the same as the chicken teriyaki you’d expect from the food court at a mall. Wasn’t great, but wasn’t terrible. Cost around eight to nine dollars. They also have beef, shrimp, and tofu if you want that. Portions were smaller than I’d have liked.

Score: 4.5/10

Restaurant Review: Bento Sushi & Noodles

Came here for a quick lunch. Got the beef rice bowl for around nine dollars I think. It wasn’t great, but it was fast. They have some shitty sushi and noodles if you want that.

Score: 4.5/10

Restaurant Review: John Brown Smokehouse

Details: Located at 10-43 44th Dr., Long Island City, NY 11101. Official site is http://www.johnbrownseriousbbq.com/

John Brown Smokehouse is a barbecue place that specializes in Kansas style barbecue. I looked it up to see what it means, but it really doesn’t matter to me. Good barbecue tastes good. That’s all I care about.

Restaurant Review: Mighty Quinn’s Barbeque

Details: Located in the food court in Brookfield Place, at 225 Liberty St, New York, NY 10281. Official site is http://mightyquinnsbbq.com/

I’ve been to a number of locations for this business and I’ve walked away from all of them feeling the same thing: disappointment. It costs too much and the food isn’t all that good.
