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.

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.

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

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.

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.
