Restaurant Review: Printon 56

Details: Located at 50 W 56th St, New York, NY 10019. The official site is http://www.printon56.com/splash.php

Printon 56 is your standard, no frills New York City lunch place for office workers. They have pizza, a hot station where you can get a meat entree with two sides, a sandwich station, and a salad station. Most things here cost somewhere around ten dollars. A slice of pizza costs two dollars and seventy-five cents I think.

Overall, the food here isn’t great. There’s a place to sit in the back of where they serve pizza. Prices aren’t great considering the quality of food. Chipotle still wins in terms of quality of food versus price, which makes this a place you should avoid unless you are desperate, have eaten everything else within a block radius and want to eat something different. Otherwise, avoid this place. Also worth mentioning is that I’ve had a slice of pizza here that literally made me sick and need to take a sick day.

Restaurant Review: Red Lobster

Details: Located at 211-217 Old Country Rd., Carle Place, NY 11514, among other locations. Official site is redlobster.com.

Not too long ago I went to a Red Lobster and found that every single thing I ordered was some of the shittiest food I’d ever had. Truly, Red Lobster is one of the shittiest places to eat in America. I can see the appeal if you live inland and have no access to seafood. However, if you don’t, there is almost no reason to ever visit this den of shitty food.

Food Stall Review: Shikoku Teriyaki Express

Details: Located in the food court of the New World Mall, Flushing, NY 11355. Couldn’t find an official site, so here’s the yelp page: https://www.yelp.com/biz/shikoku-teriyaki-express-flushing

This is your standard chicken teriyaki place you’d expect to see in any reasonably sized American mall. What’s ironic is that this is mostly a Chinese mall with Chinese oriented businesses and the chicken teriyaki here is decidedly an American mall style. It’s about five to six dollars for chicken. Other options like beef or shrimp cost more. You get rice and vegetables and you can replace rice with noodles. It’s classic, American mall food in a Chinese mall. It’s not great, but I sometimes get the urge for it.

Restaurant Review: Asian Station

Details: Located at 155 E 52nd St, New York, NY 10022. Official site is http://www.asianstation.nyc/.

Asian Station is the kind of Americanized Asian restaurant that someone with a vague inkling of what “Asian” food is would enjoy, designed largely for Western palates. If you actually have concept and appetite for authentic “Asian” food, this place is grotesque. However, if you do not, this place likely isn’t bad and serves a kind of food many would find appealing.

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.

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.

Restaurant Review: Bento Sushi & Noodles

Details: Located at 173 Broadway, New York, NY 10007. Couldn’t find an official site so here’s the yelp page: https://www.yelp.com/biz/bento-sushi-and-noodles-new-york-2?osq=japanese

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.

Restaurant Review: Dominos v. Pizza Hut v. Papa Johns v. Little Cesars

Detais: Located all over the place. Official sites are https://www.dominos.com/en/, https://www.pizzahut.com/#/home, https://www.papajohns.com/, https://www.papajohns.com/.

I’ve been eating a lot shitty, fast food pizza lately. You know the kind; a big brand that heats up ingredients frozen for years. It’s particularly shitty because I live in New York City, which means I have access to cheaper, better quality pizza everywhere. In any case, I decided to write a review for it and since there are so many brands of shitty pizza, I decided to declare a winner. Here goes.

Restaurant Review: Peacefood Cafe

Details: Located at 460 Amsterdam Ave, New York, NY 10024. The official site is peacefoodcafe.com

This is a gluten free, vegan place. I’m not vegan nor do I give a shit about gluten.

The decor was nice. The service was nice. The food was horrendous. I had the seitan avocado sandwich… to my great regret. It cost around ten dollars. My vegan friends really enjoyed their food.

Overall, I don’t like vegan places and I did not like this place.
