The Wilshire branch of FE Credit Union is truly amazing!
They are always so helpful in answering all your questions. Transactions are handled efficiently and fast. Shout out to Patty, Fernando and Armando who are always there to make my life easy! Im oh so glad to have switch to this credit union. They totally are better than dealing with the big banks who do nothing but make your life hell-ish instead of better. Kudos to all amazing people in First Entertainment!!!
Discovered this Mecca of Brazilian Food in Yelp when I was looking for something different that was close to my apt. This place is AMAZING! Ate here for a last night date, Valentine's Date and the most recent for my MIL's birthday.
Their meats are always cooked perfectly and tasted oh oh oh sooo GOOD! There's like over 10 meats to choose from and they all taste differently. A love all of them except for the lamb chops only because I'm not into eating Bambi.
We also tried the Sangria and honestly it was the best Sangria that i have ever had. Just not too happy with the $30 price tag per pitcher though.
Lets not forget to mention their REFILLABLE cheese breads! sooo yummy and served hot all the time.
During my third visit, I was practicing a no-meat diet for Lent and I know this was the wrong place to eat but gosh they surprised me yet again. They started serving GRILLED SHRIMP! I stuffed myself with vegetables and seafood pasta from the salad bar and hot food buffet. I really thought I will be soo miserable not being able to eat all the meats offered but the shrimp, salmon, cheese bread and veggies filled me up.
Another great factor about this place, is the ambiance. It 's soo mellow and intimate. It has that Manhattan feel for some reason. Anyway, even if the room was packed the noise level wasnt overpowering and the view was amazing.
I also give them a huge star for having free parking in the back. So hassle free!
Cant wait to go there again after Easter to use my $50 coupon! Please visit their website for the deal!
Move along people. There's nothing here to see.
My hubbie and I went here a couple of months ago when I purchased their Groupon Deal of $20 for an Authentic Cuban Dinner for 2 (Value of up to $56.05). Thank goodness for the Groupon because without it I wouldn't have come here.
- an appetizer costing up to $8.25 --- we got the shrimp cocktail
- any two entrees costing up to $18.95 --- I got the paella and my hubbie the ropa vieja
- any two soft drinks or juice drinks costing up to $4.95 each --- just sodas
The Shrimp Cocktail. Eeek! One of the worst cocktails I have eaten. The shrimp was the frozen kind and tiny and the cocktail sauce was watery.
My paella was a major disappointment. The rice didn't taste like any authentic Cuban paella. The seafood were bland and again the frozen kind. It had crab legs cut into one inch portions and they were rubbery. I couldn't even open it with the cracker they provided because instead of cracking it open it just squishes it. And the salmon pieces were dry and had their skin on.
The Ropa Vieja was ok according to my hubbie.
As for the decor, they have walls of for sale paintings. I particularly liked one farm painting but it was too pricey for me.
The food was one star and the other star was for the good service.
Finally an affordable and decent ramen place near my place!
Their premium pork ramen is heavenly! It has enough pork and has oodles of noodles. What I like about this place is their broth. Its not loaded with MSG and it taste like real broth.
Will definitely come back here.
My officemates and I went to Komodo for lunch today to try out something new. We're tired of eating at Momo's or Chicken on Fire during Payday Fridays so we decided to try out the newly opened Komodo Café on Robertson and Pico.
I ordered the Blazin' Shrimp Rice Bowl ($11 w taxes). I should have paid attention to the name so I would have known it was a spicy dish. Eek I cant handle spicy foods. Anyway, the flavors was ok and definitely something new to me. The shrimps though was a major disappointment. Even though it came in a decent size and quantity, it was the FROZEN kind. The texture was a little rubbery and it lacks the natural flavor of shrimps. Didn't like it at all!!! And the chopped salad and mayo didn't really contribute anything to the dish. One thing I like about them is they have a choice of regular or brown rice.
After I gave up on trying to finish the Blazin' Shrimp I decided to order the meatballs side dish and it was great. It was juicy and flavorful. A definite must have for the next visit.
As for the location, be careful not to miss the front door since its partially covered by the bus stop in front. They have metered parking in front and additional parking on the surrounding streets. Inside, the dining room is a bit small and they only have a small space in front of the counter for ordering. It's a little tight in there if you go there during lunch hours. They could at least move back the counter a couple feet to make more room.
All in all, I will keep them in mind for our next Payday Friday Lunches.
I had Skys for dinner last night because I've been craving for their filet mignon tacos. they are soo awesome!!! meat was tender, not overpowered by seasonings and not overcooked. the $5.99 price is sooo worth it!! i never had a steak taco like this before in any other mexican restaurants. definitely one of my favorites!!!Another great meal at Skys! Thats what i call breakfast of champions!! Their french toast is to die… En savoir plusI love Sky's! Love Love their food! I go there almost every week.
My favorite is the shrimp taco with… En savoir plus
This is my coffee heaven every morning! move aside starbucks! you cant compete with 7-11!!
They have very inexpensive and wide selection of brewed coffee and creamers. during the winter i always ge their hot french vanilla drink with 2 extra shots and fresh milk. i add the fresh milk since they tend to be too sweet and very hot. the milk is the key baby! and during the summer i get their iced mocha coffee with 2 extra shots. got to have those extra shots to keep me awake at work. sometimes i overindulge and get a big gulp (help me!)
The employees are also soo nice. Hi bertha! LOL my officemates and i are such regulars that we sometimes get side deals!
They also have a wide selection of 99c pastries (brownies, cake and mini donuts) that doesnt fail to feed my sugar rushes!
And lastly, lets not forget the ATM machine! thank you 7-11 for partnering with credit union. now i dont need to drive to my branch to withdraw money. and there's no fee!!!!
The place to find fulfillment and Light.
thanks to my BFF for introducting me to Arirang Music Studio.
This place is a great place to belch out your vocal cords because they have modern songs like Adele, Niki Minaj and etc. and hopefully they will add some more soon!
The rooms and mics are kept clean and hygeinic! im all for the no-spit microphones...will definitely come back again!
Bye San Jose! Thanks Southwest!
My flights are always on time in and out of Mineta.
Im a great fan of their free wifi! It helped me coutless times to pass the time. They also have a great selection of restaurants that you can eat at while waiting. Mineta is also very clean and TSA are always friendly and ready to help you when youre in need.
