Restaurant Review: Alley 41

Details: Located at 136-45 41st Ave, Flushing, NY 11355. Official site is

Alley 41 is a somewhat trendy Szechuan restaurant in Flushing. Szechuan is a region in China that mostly focuses on spicy food. Specifically, they have a lot of food that has that numbing type of spicy you get from a kind of peppercorn.

Restaurant Review: Cocoron

Details: Located at 16 Delancey St, New York, NY 10002. Official site is

Cocoron is a vegan noodle place. They have vegan and non-vegan items. They mostly focus on soba.

The space is small and cramped. Service was okay. The place was severely crowded when I went.

I ordered a bowl of Kake soba for around ten dollars. It was okay. I’m starting to realize that I either don’t like soba or that I’ve never had good soba before.

Overall, Cocoron reminds me of the stereotypical trendy noodle place that is all trendy-ness, no substance. It’s not terrible, but I don’t recommend anyone come here.

Score: 5.2/10

Restaurant Review: Candle 79

Details: Located at 154 E 79th St, New York, NY 10075. Official site is

I came here for vegan brunch because… vegans.

We sat in a comfortable booth.

I had the cranberry apple french toast for fourteen dollars. It was okay.

Overall, vegan food is still pretty depressing. Worth mentioning is that this place is really popular and was packed when we got there, which was around lunch time.

Score: 5/10

Restaurant Review: Mango Mango Dessert

Details: Located at 136-28 39th Ave, Flushing, NY 11354. Official site is

Mango Mango is a comfortable place to eat Asian style desserts. Unfortunately, it has few seats and is usually packed during peak hours.

The space is comfortable. This specific Mango Mango location has been open for a while so the couches are a little worn down, but there are couches.

Service was fine.

I had the snow white mango slush-o. I tried some of the sweet soups that the other people I came with had. It was all just okay. Most things cost somewhere between five to ten dollars.

Overall, it was fine. It’s a nice place to hang out, but the food and drink were just okay.

Score: 6/10
