Restaurant: Spice Queen

Review of Spice Queen – San Francisco 3809 Geary Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94118 Price: $ Reviewed by The Husband. Disclaimer: The views and opinions expressed in this post are solely his. He also takes all photo credit.   Today I am going to write about the $7.95 lunch special at Spice Queen. The advertising at the restaurant is a little deceiving because it appeared that we’d be getting the hot pot for $7.95, but it’s actually a lunch special. Nonetheless, my coworker and I were in the mood for some spicy food so we ventured here. The hot pot appeared to be similar to what they serve at Little Sheep Mongolian Hot Pot with a choice of broths and you order per item that you want. However, we wanted to save some money and got the lunch special instead.  In a darkly lit room, there was some nice Chinese decor. We sat in the main dining area and were served tea in these very nice, authentic, heavy clay tea kettles. The lunch special included a soup, which …

Restaurant: Muguboka

Review of Muguboka – San Francisco 401 Balboa St, San Francisco, CA 94118 Price: $-$$ Reviewed by The Husband. Disclaimer: The views and opinions expressed in this post are solely his. He also takes all photo credit. When walking inside, it appeared to be a small quaint, family owned store where most of the employees did not speak English. Our server was this very nice middle age’d Korean lady and took our order. They served some free tea and I decided to get the Bul Go Gee and Soft Tofy lunch special. At $15.95 for both dishes, I was able to enjoy “tender beef marinated in special sauce and soft tofu soup.” One day for lunch my co-worker and I decided to grab some Korean food. We decided to go visit Muguboka on Balboa Ave. http://muguboka.com/ Located on Balboa Ave between 5th and 6th Ave in the Inner Richmond, it was definitely within walking distance from where I worked. The dishes came with a variety of small dishes, 13 of them to be exact, ranging from kimchi …

Restaurant: China First

Review of China First – San Francisco 336 Clement St, San Francisco, CA 94118 Price: $ Reviewed by The Husband. Disclaimer: The views and opinions expressed in this post are solely his. He also takes all photo credit.    Sometimes I forget to bring my lunch to work, and on this one particular day, I had nothing to eat. My boss (the one who was with me when we went to Burma Superstar) also did not bring a lunch. So we decided to go out for lunch together. There is this one Chinese Restaurant that is a staple for us. Located conveniently in the heart of Clement Gai, this Chinese Restaurant has stood the test of time. Many restaurants have come and gone, but China First is still there. For lunch, there is always complimentary pork bone soup. There are a few chinese vegetables and herbs boiled with some beef bones to provide a nice appetizer, which was graciously given to us on the house.  My boss and I decided to eat family style. For …

Restaurant: Bambu

Review of Bambu – San Mateo 153 S. B Street, San Mateo Price: $ Reviewed by The Husband. Disclaimer: The views and opinions expressed in this post are solely his. He also takes all photo credit. After a good meal with Ramen at Ramen Dojo, my good friend and I decided to take a walk down B street and go to Bambu. http://www.bambusanmateo.com/ Located at 153 S. B Street, this Southeast Asian drink place is in the heart of San Mateo. Bambu is a relatively new establishment, being established in 2008 by 4 sisters in San Jose to try to bring Vietnamese drinks, espressos, etc. to the public.   This particular Bambu that we visited is located in San Mateo. There is nice decor on the walls including photos of Vietname in a very artistic fashion. There is a nice counter with a chalkboard for specials. Behind the counter is a small door into their kitchen, and past the kitchen is the bathroom. Therefore to go to the bathroom, you have to walk past the kitchen.  …
