We actually wanted Thai food for dinner tonight, but the place we were headed was closed on Sundays, so we ended up at Chef Li for Chinese food instead.

Loren got the kung po chicken and I got the sweet & sour shrimp.

I think I’ll stick with the sweet and sour chicken instead of the shrimp.  There was just too much breading on the shrimp and some of them had a recently frozen taste.  Loren liked his dish though.  Total bill with a drink was $23.

  • Poor Service


    Went to lunch at Eastlake Cafe today.  I will never understand how a restaurant this small can have such poor service.  Once the plates are cleared away (by another waitress, mind you),  don’t you think that should send a signal that we’d like our check?

    The French dip and fries were ok, but not worth the hassle and honestly not worth the $9.58 total.

    I keep trying to like this restaurant, but every time we come here, I walk away thinking I shouldn’t go back.  I had planned on ordering a dessert to go, but figured since we’d already been there over an hour, it wasn’t worth the time to try to order it.

  • Another order of masitas and a mahi cuban and a tasty $20 lunch is had by all.  Yeah, we eat here a lot.  Believe it or not, I don’t even post all the times we eat here.

  • We went over to Salsa’s Mexican Restaurant for lunch today.  They’re really good about getting food out fast.  They dropped off chips and salsa.  Loren said it’s gotten better, but still lacks that burst of fresh flavors that he’s gotten in other salsas.

    He ordered the lunch chicken fajitas.  He asked the waiter if it came with guacamole and he said yes, but of course when it came to the table, it didn’t have any.  The waiter did rectify the situation quickly though.  It seems they still need to get more familiar with their own menu.

    I ordered the Cancun Chimichanga.  It’s a shrimp chimi and though the shell wasn’t crispy enough, it did have pretty good flavors.  The refried beans had a little bit of a smoky flavor to them today.

     

    Total bill with a drink was $19.

  • Light Lunch


    Had a chicken salad today at Daddy’s Grill for lunch.

    Sadly, I ate most of the salad, but not much of the actual chicken salad on top of it because it had raw onions in it.  I should know better by now not to order those kinds of salads since I’m so picky.  Service was a bit slow, especially when we were finished eating and waiting for our check.  Total bill was $8.
