This place is for milk tea lovers who don't like their shit too sweet! My fav is the sea salt black cream milk tea. Their ratios are great, and you can customize the sweetness/tea/milk. I mean, their black tea doesn't take like Lipton tea unlike Purple Cow.
You know it's bad taqueria if there's too many white people eating in there. If there's a Mexican Chipotle, it would be this.
I got hate messages from anons for this review ;) FYI for SF transplants, us peeps who live here long enough (have to) do the white people to non-white people ratio test to see if an ethnic restaurant serves quality food. Usually, it's an indication that the food is bland.
Called in to order a small basil and mozzarella pizza for pick-up. Dude said pizza will be ready in 20. I got there like 25 min. I had to wait for another 5 min. Handed me my pizza. Went home like less than 3 min. And my pizza was straight up cold, and there was even a hint of bitterness in the taste.
What the hell, man. Did they get butt hurt that I only ordered like a small box of pizza when I could've ordered it at Dominos? Maybe they sensed that I was a college student so maybe why not fuck with her order? You know how Santa Cruz is like with keeping their 'local scene' local even if it means making their food and service shitty just so outsiders will hate it/keep out - which is such a counterproductive on their side because their business is not improving.
Idk. Save your money. Get Los Pericos instead.
Bought a sloppy job chicken sandwich and a whole salad plus a medium iced tea for $24 dollars?!
I can make that sandwich better; in fact, I know and can and will. Idk if the dudes working that time were just too lazy to make a decent and respectable chicken sandwich on a Friday night, but I bought those sammiches at 9 pm. You usually go out at 11 ish on a Friday night in sf, so they have no reason to be so butthurt that they don't put any effort in making me a sammich.
Hell, I work in a cafe, and our prices are 1/3-2/3 of their prices, and our food is crafted better.
Omg so good! And they use free running mammals for their savory meat selections.
Portions served are humongous. Sure, there is always a long wait in line because the place is small, but when they seat you, the cooks don't take that long to prepare your food (though not that fast, but within reasonable length of time).
And you can order and sip drinks prior to being seated. I fell in love! I will come back and try their other dishes.
Minus -1 star for not having any liquor options to be added in their shakes.
Why do people talk shit about how dirty this bar is? Every bar is supposed to be dirty and sticky. At least this one does not smell! And crowd does not have a lot of smelly people!
And they have couches
And they have booths
And they have a pool table
And two separate bathrooms for the sexes
And there's a juke box
I give 5 stars because of the really nice bartender. I forgot her name, but I'll edit this later to put in her name.
This is our to go to bar. We know familiar faces. My bf knows more than familiar (no, not at all any intimate, hah)
But sometimes, the crowd can be really annoying because they tend to play the song over and over and over again. Please, just stop. And sometimes, when the night is mellow, you can see their faces, instead of focusing on socializing with and showing interest to their friends, they look around, every minute or two, to see if there's anything "going on". It's kind of like the boredom you see on kid's faces back in high school when they're always waiting for something to happen. But that's just sometimes. Sometimes, the crowd can be really energetic.
I must say, crowd is changing.. Is it because this "hipster" scene is no longer at its appealing peak, and people are capitalizing on it since its fall?
We have met some douchebags here. But there is always a douchebag everywhere.
Nevertheless, still a 5 star because it is a great bar.
It can be a bro scene, a sausage congested bro scene. And I'm assuming most of the people who come here are either got dragged in because their friend's hanging out here, too lazy to get out of Richmond, newly SF residents who previously resided in a suburb or just from out of town specifically from a suburb/foreign country.
And when I say suburban, we're talking about Fresno like. You know, those bros you see walking around SOMA whenever there's a ball game at AT&T and you know that for shit because they're causing 75% of the traffic since they don't know how to drive around SF. Or those bros you see hanging out in the Marina.
I'm won't be surprised if I get shit for this review.
Anything else, drinks are priced decently with good alcohol ratio.
But they play hip hop music sometimes for fuck sake's.
If you are a into that scene, then go here.
- decent coffee
- alcohol in their menu
- cheap cheap cheap
- live music at some nights
- comfy dwelling
- friendly staff
Minus 1 star for old hag creepers hanging out in the spot. They should have a sign somewhere that says "Please do not attempt to sexually harass or visibly fantasize about other customers. It is creepy and rude."
