Like this place. Bright and causal with lots of light. Felt warm during a cold winter day. Food was excellent, they use very good ingredients. Portions are tapas size. Some fusion dishes. Will come again soon.
I just now didn't eat lunch at Burger Me in Aegean Mall. I mean I ordered, but the crap that came to the table was such a travesty that I couldn't touch it beyond the single bite I managed. For one, the bread was soggy with butter. For another, the meatball--I can't call it a patty--took up only one quarter of the area of the bread, which disintegrated into a puddle of condiments when I picked it up. Finally, the meat itself was tasteless. I slid the burger-like thing from in front of me, paid my bill, and left. If you're looking for an American burger, then take this American's advice, DON'T go to Burger Me. The place might as well be called Bugger Me!
Had dinner at Okra with a couple of friends and cannot think of anything to complain. The sashimi (sashimi platter) were fresh and well prepared, the nigiri (sushi platter) were exquisite (the rice alone was fantastic) and the Wagyu beef one of the best I've ever had. Had to get an extra order of the chutoro as that was to die for.
Didn't try the cocktails but was told they were up to the same standard with the food.
Great food served in Zen-like decor with jazz playing in the background amounts to a very nice evening.
I seem to be on a bit of a lucky streak with Beijing restos...
The Bar at Migas has a lot of things to be liked for, but when it comes to movie nights, it's The Worst. I went three times, and two times out of three it was a big fat flop of a failure. One time we came only to find out that the movie was cancelled, because they have just found out (five minutes before the start) that they couldn't play that dvd on their computer. Yesterday the movie started half an hour late, and their dvd stopped playing in the middle of the movie. Wow! Is that too much to expect them to check if their dvds are playing okay a bit in advance? Is that such a difficult job? So frustrating! Ugh!! No wonder it's always so empty on a Sunday night!
