Insatiable Girl

ARCADIA: Phoenix

Never coming back to this branch again. I asked for my usual– green milk tea, half sugar, less ice– because I have a long night ahead of me. I saw the woman making it, she added about ten seconds worth of condensed milk. So of course when I got it, it was sweet enough to give me at least five cavities upon my first sip. (There were CHUNKS of condensed milk in there!) I got Johnny to complain about it for me; the lady dumps out half an inch of the drink, adds some green tea, and hands it back to me. Still way too sweet. I mean I asked for half sugar; it’s not like I was being a bitch and just complaining for something in hindsight. Anyway, Johnny asks the lady to just make me a new one, but instead she dumps out half my drink, pours in tea, and hands it back to me in this “hurry and take it bitch” manner. I don’t like to be a pain, so I took it, but now all I have is plain green tea.

I’m sticking to the one in City of Industry from now on. The waitresses are nicer and there’s more of them, so they actually take time to make their drinks not like this lady and her haphazard method of putting mine together three times. I’m disappointed. I’ve been thinking about their green milk tea all day. Yes, their green milk tea is normally that good– well not this branch. And yes, I am an addict.

Worst Beer Ever.

Posted in Uncategorized by sue on January 14, 2011

Stay away from this beer if you know what’s good for you. 6 out of 7 of us hated it. You have been warned.

(This picture was stolen off Google. I did not get it again. Do not worry, I am not that stupid.)

ROWLAND HEIGHTS: Jang Mo Jip

Posted in food, los angeles, restaurants, Uncategorized by sue on January 13, 2011

18755 Colima Rd
Rowland Heights, CA 91748
626 965 7288

Price: Cheap
Rating: Good
Directions: Get off at Fullerton on the 60
Reservations: They don’t take them, but you don’t need them anyway
Must Get: Suh lung tang

Hmm, I’m noticing I eat suh lung tang a lot here in LA. In New York, I ate a ton of burgers… At least suh lung tang is much healthier, right? Jang Mo Jip is nothing special. It’s decent and cheap, but by no means mind blowing. It’s not as good as Gung Jung Sul Rung Tang which is just a few minutes away, but it’s decent. Their kakdukgi, radish kimchi, is great though, probably some of the best I’ve had in a restaurant. I could eat that plain with a bowl of rice. Yum.

NEW YORK: Joe’s Ginger

Posted in Uncategorized by sue on November 11, 2010

Do not eat here. Maybe we ordered the wrong dishes or maybe we came on a bad day, but the food was not satisfying. Of the four dishes we had, only one was decent, two if I wanted to be really nice. The seafood pan fried noodles were good, but needed a tad bit more sauce. The sauteed string beans were alright, but no where near as good as my mom’s cooking. The soup dumplings had an odd aftertaste, smokey almost. I couldn’t get past that. The salt and pepper pork chops were the worst though; they were battered in what tasted like cake mix. It was a strange set of tastes. Sweet and savory, but not in a good way.

BROOKLYN: Supercore

With a name like Supercore, it’s really no surprise it’s a Japanese joint. The food is alright, a hit or miss with the dishes. If you happen to go, get their yakisoba and ginger chicken. Do not get the pork sausages (aka hot dogs) or beef curry. The drinks aren’t bad here; I like their green tea milky sake.

NEW YORK: Spoon

Posted in Uncategorized by sue on November 8, 2010

Spoon is a hidden gem. I would have never discovered it unless it were for Yelp and For Colored Girls. (Yes, I watched the movie!) The movie was only showing in Union Square for the time we wanted to watch the film, so it narrowed down our choices for locations for brunch.

This place is cute with a simple, but tasty menu. Pictured above are their Eggs Spaniard which is what you should get if you go there. Their Baked Eggs in a Skillet were good overall, but the portion wasn’t as big (and thus not as filling) and it was a bit on the dry side.

I highly recommend you go if you are in the area and want brunch– a brunch where the food, not the alcohol, matters. They don’t serve drinks, so no mimosas, bloody marys, etc. Sorry folks, but hey if it’s good enough for Lucy Liu, it’s good enough for you. She was there with her friends when I arrived.

NEW YORK: La Palapa

Posted in Uncategorized by sue on November 7, 2010

Best steak enchiladas I’ve had so far. Not uber cheesy like most places. Make sure you tell them you want it spicy; it’s a good enough kick to make you taste it, but not enough to make you guzzle a pitcher of water. The guac isn’t bad here either though it could do with a bit more salt and jalapeƱos for me. If you want sangria, make sure you try this place on a Sunday then when the pitcher goes for just $10, about 50% off the normal price. The food here is a bit in the pricier side; the steak enchiladas are $22, a bit of a stretch for a girl from LA where Mexican food is great and cheap everywhere.

NEW YORK: Le Pain Quotidien

Posted in Uncategorized by sue on November 7, 2010

Their ricotta, fig, and honey sandwich is great for dessert. It’s the right amount of sweetness for me. Love this place– the atmosphere, their jams/spreads, everything. Their pumpkin pie is also amazing.

BROOKLYN: The Farm on Adderly

Posted in Uncategorized by sue on November 7, 2010

Great, great place. I wish Leah and I had gone here sooner! Their sausage and egg plate was a winner; lots of food for just $8 and one of the best sausages I have ever eaten. The coffee here was surprisingly not too shabby either. Make sure you go if you ever step foot into the Prospect Park area.

BROOKLYN: Diner

Posted in Uncategorized by sue on November 5, 2010

Cute spot for a great burger. The meat is really juicy probably one of the best plain burgers I’ve had in a while (plain meaning there’s no option for guac, mushrooms, bacon, etc.); it’s definitely better than Dumont Burger.

Love that it looks like an old school diner/dining car and that they write their specials on the table.
