I'm actually using G+ for something! Saw this last weekend at Home Depot, I couldn't stop laughing. I decided I needed to find a place to share it with the world, and FailBlog seemed to be the place, cause dang was that some serious advertising fail.

Meh. Service was impressively slow given that we just popped in to get something to quench our thirst - it should not take like 10 minutes to just hand someone lemonade you already made. Plus, I guess they were trying to be healthy by putting almost no sugar in their lemonade, but it tasted like drinking slightly watered-down lemon juice. Decor is pretty hipsterish, so whether you like that depends entirely on whether hipster is your thing or not. :p (Note: this was for the cafe named Zephyr - apparently they've changed the name since I was there; I'm not sure whether that means they've changed anything else, like say how slow their service is?)

Not quite the best Indian food I'd had, but it was certainly above average. Probably the best Indian food in Long Beach, though that isn't saying much - Taste of India is bland, Kamal Palace is just terrible, and while the food at Natraj was quite good, their service was rather scatterbrained. This place, at least when we were there, had good food -and- pretty good service. The free tea was nice of them, too, even if I would have wished it was chilled rather than hot. But it's free, so I can't complain, really. Prices are a little high for a lot of things for the amount you get, though. Thus, since they stopped running their weekend lunch buffet (which was quite good, but they don't do it anymore), we have started coming here for one specific thing: their "crazy roll", which is super mega awesome, and totally worth the price. On the other hand, I will mention we tried their "naan pizza" once, cause seriously, naan pizza? Sounds amazing, right? Well, it -was- rather tasty, but not that large for the price, and took a crazy long time to arrive. Not getting that again, even if it was pretty delicious.

Just saw this place opened up not too far from our location, so I had to pop over and check what was up. We dropped by on Friday night, which was Valentine's, and they had the music playing pretty loud. My other half didn't feel like drinking, though, so we left after ascertaining that it did indeed look interesting and we should come back sometime. That time was a whole day later, when she was feeling better, as their fancy Valentine's dessert flight did look super interesting (if a bit pricey, but hey, there were two 50-dollar-a-bottle bottles on the list, plus a fancy dessert; the price was understandable). Happily, Saturday night the music volume was much more reasonable. I did feel like they were still figuring out how to run the place, but we got what we came for, it totally felt like it was worth 25 bucks even despite their pours being, yes, pretty small (it wouldn't surprise me if their pours were normally less stingy for non-fancy-Valentines-related flights, though? I will drop by later and check.). Everyone there was super friendly and excited about wine, even if our server did initially start enthusing about the other flight, the one we didn't get, until we corrected him. :D From this flight, I learned: Barsac-Sauternes wines are pricey but amazingly delicious; Rieslings aren't *always* sweet (there were two Rieslings - one was, one wasn't); the bakery they got their desserts from makes killer cheesecakes (I forget the name of the place; it's where Shortnin Bread used to be); and this place could be a lot of fun, but they need to have an email list for their flights for the week, not just post on facebook (they said they're working on it.)

Absolutely excellent. The aji de gallina was a bit different than I was used to (not as thick), but it was still fantastic. The hamburguesa was *very* interesting (in a good way). Lunch special came with a small bowl of tasty pasta salad, and a small bowl of regular green salad that looked boring, until I tasted it and realized it had a mindblowingly good dressing. Also came with a small, but decadent, square of the best tres leches cake we'd ever had. We also tried the chicharron de pollo appetizer, which again, the dish itself was just really good fried chicken cubes, nothing that exceptional, but the "rocoto aioli" was *definitely* something exceptional. Service was also just crazy good. Only complaint: where's the aji sauce? You go to a Peruvian place, even if it's super-fusiony, I still want to see aji sauce. :p EDIT: came back a second time a few weeks ago, because they're super good. It's not on the menu, but at least when we tried, they would totally sell you a full sized slice of tres leches for 7 bucks. I'm not usually a fan of paying 7 bucks for a dessert, but in this case, it is so totally worth it. That is some monumentally excellent dessert.

We ordered a couple appetizers, a couple entrees, and a drink. Service was pretty fast, and quite friendly - when we had a hard time deciding between two of their teas, they brought us a complimentary small tea of the one we didn't buy a large of. Both teas were tasty - tasted actually a lot like the stuff my favorite Asian-fusion tea place (Cha for Tea) sells, at like half the price (because their large is *enormous*). Super tasty teas. The spring rolls were mostly lettuce; not the best spring rolls I've had. The BBQ beef skewers *were* extremely good. The sausage fried rice, the sausage was delicious; the rice was mostly great, other than it felt a bit over-fried and hard in spots. The student noodle, wasn't quite as good as at Phnom Penh (my comparison for student noodle), but it was still quite good, except the beef in it was pretty low quality (I had half-chicken, half-beef; the chicken was fine.) Decor is about what you'd expect, but it felt clean, and they weren't playing annoyingly loud music or anything, so good enough. All in all, while I might like the noodles at Phnom Penh more, this place has like a hundred times more variety, and is not at all bad. I certainly plan on coming back.

Sopes: excellent. Tacos: also great, some more than others (al pastor is excellent). Tamales: pretty good, huge for the price, though I've had better tamales (but where else can you get pineapple tamales?). Horchata: giant, and also great. Service: fast, I guess, but a bit confusing. The loud music that started playing through some speaker somewhere about halfway through our meal: loud. I think I'd recommend this place for takeout a bit more than I'd recommend it as a place to sit down and eat. (Though I did just learn this time that they have a bunch of tables outside, too.) You can stuff yourself for like 8 bucks, so there's that.

Way better than Cham Sut Gol. Both places had great food, but in every other way, this place was way better (well other than in that Cham Sut Gol has ice cream and this place doesn't, but do you really go to a AYCE Korean BBQ for ice cream?): the menu has way more choices, they're way more generous with banchan, and the service was way better too (though I can't comment on service for a more normal sized party - both here and Cham Sut Gol, I was with a party of like 20 people taking over two giant tables.) I will specifically call out the brisket, which was about the same here and at Cham Sut Gol (which is to say heavenly), the garlic calamari (the spicy calamari was too much work), and notably, oddly given that it's a bbq place, their jap chae. Best jap chae ever. I ate the crap out of that jap chae.
