Very happy that Le Petit Canard is right around the corner from my apartment because the food is great and so is the price. I have visited Le Petit Canard frequently since it's opening and is never disappointed. However I was sad finding out tonight that my favorite dish the duck confit is no longer available on the menu, when asked the server has no idea what I was talking about. Tried the French burger for the first time tonight, was very satisfied with the onion confit and foie gras inside, the Duck Hachi is also one of my favorite dishes. Hoping the duck confit will return onto the menu!
Well, well, well... Bánh mì: instead of Pate they used peanut butter...same color, who the hell cares.....white cheap processed cheese on top, great.........and some Mayonaise to finish this creature....fck hell....FAKE PHOCO....another Chinese rip off......
Hit and miss. Some good paninis and juice. But some of the plates consist of dry meat and a mountain of brown rice. The mountain towers on the plate, a behemoth of fibre which is probably healthy but offers zero taste. Service was excellent but then you have to clean away your own plate - why? They don't like to give ayis jobs? Who is benefiting from this plate cleaning draft? Ditch the rice mountain and employ cleaners.
My wife and I went to Itsuki on Donghu Lu on 18 September for a friend's birthday dinner. We had the all you can eat option which came to approximately 230RMB per person.
The food tasted good and the service was decent.
Unfortunately, within a short period of time of eating this meal, my wife and I, and at least one of the other people in our dinner party, had extremely bad diarrhea and stomach cramps for around one week. This was the only meal that we had with our other friend that was also ill. I have not spoken to any other members of our dinner party since then and do not know if they were also ill after this dinner.
As it is difficult to identify one specific cause of bacterial food poisoning (this has been confirmed by our doctor), I cannot confirm outright that it was the food at Itsuki that made us sick. Hence, I am not accusing the restaurant of poisoning us and am merely detailing the undisputed facts of our dining experience at this restaurant.
I went several times to Bubba's HongQiao, and since they had a Chili Cook-Off few meters away from the restaurant on Cool Docks, my friends and I decided to check the place as well. First of, the event was fun. Good music, food and drinks made the day a little brighter. We met old friends there too. It was really a great idea. We left the venue early as we expected the restaurant to be packed, which quickly was, and continued are American style day. As I mentioned few months ago, I love Bubba's Hongqiao, and I went back quite often. Well, on the Cool Docks, Bubba's is similar except it also has the "cool" outside terrace with a view. Appetizers are generously served, meat is delicious, and decoration is... Bubba's style. The service could have been a little faster, we guess it was because of the many customers coming from the event. But... still. All in all, a great place to go with family or friends before winter comes.
Visited Dr Shaw for Invisalign, he is very patient and reliable. Got the braces in June and I can see a little bit changing in my teeth alignment and I quit eating snacks since I don't want to take them up and down frequently. Guess what, I have been losing wight! Now I am sure I will be good looking in one year! Thank you Dr Shaw!
Tried the ultimate pull pork sandwich at 58. Seems the ingredients are nice. Actually it's nice they list the toppings because I probably miss some of it when tasting it. The meat could really been heated up much more. Kind of felt like a leftover sandwich. Maybe no high turn around as this place is empty on this Sunday.
