I’m blessed (or maybe cursed) with working downtown, so I get to try a lot of the big-name food carts. Tacofino have always been a pretty solid choice for fish tacos. Their commissary/restaurant has been open for a couple years but I haven’t had a chance to try it until now. So glad I did.
DISCLAIMER: Please take this review with a grain of shio. I wouldn’t even consider it a real review because it was Gyoza Bar’s grand opening and things there will definitely change and get tweaked and hopefully improved as time goes on and they develop their rhythm. Take this as a snapshot of the night and their food at that particular point in time. All opinions are still my brutally honest opinions of what we were served though, so read on and come to your own conclusions.
Gyoza Bar + Ramen is the latest “concept” from the Aburi line of restaurants which include Miku and Minami. In a nutshell, elevated food with a twist and a price tag to match. They’ve done sushi, now Gyoza Bar is their take on gyoza and ramen.
Basho Cafe has already been written about a lot but here’s my quick take on it: it’s a cute ‘n quaint Japanese cafe with light meals and baked goods tailored for the Japanese palate, which prefers lighter, less heavy and less sweet flavours.
Everybody knows the other Cambodian restaurant in town, Phnom Penh, but there’s another Cambodian place on Victoria Dr. and 33rd called Angkor that’s been open for about 5 years. In fact, the last time we went there WAS about 5 years ago, soon after they opened! I wrote about it way back then on Chowhound here.
