Murals of villas and a marketplace grace the wall of this restaurant. The music is fun, the service great, the food cannot be beat. This eatery makes its ingredients in small batches, ensuring you get the freshest available. Its meat is hand-trimmed, lean and low in sodium. Healthy cooking is key here. Choose from a whole wheat, spinach or tomato tortilla. Wraps and burritos can be had traditionally, or more creatively, like the picante (with chipolte). Choose from chicken, beef, carnitas or chorizo, salmon, snapper and prawns. For breakfast, try Chorizo and Eggs, Huevos Rancheros or the Mexican Omelet.
This corner restaurant is stark and simple, but with the greetings all accompanied with a smile, you will feel right at home. You can order prepared dishes and combination plates at the small buffet up front, and either sit down or take it to go. Depending on how many items you have (that change daily) you can fill up on the assortment of fried rolls, noodle and vegetable dishes, buttery fried rice with pork, or whatever else is set out that day. The beef dishes, such as Oyster Beef, are also particularly good. House beer and wine are available by the glass. Sit-down service is also available.
Since 1968, this restaurant has been serving chic and delicious burgers, bacon and baklava on the cheap. A cut above a greasy spoon or a fast food joint, it has a sleek, yellow and blue decor, comfy seats and apparent gloss. It serves breakfasts, like omelets with cheese, mushroom, bacon, or sausage, or eggs any style. Also find sandwiches with a decidedly Middle Eastern flair like the Shish Kebab Sandwich. Vegetarian selections include falafel and hummus sandwiches. But really, you are here for the burgers, which are big, cheap and juicy. Try the All-American and the Bacon. Everything is grilled and made to order.
Find a mix of primarily Chinese food with hints of Japanese, Indian, Korean and some Southeast Asian touches thrown in for good measure. It features noodle plates with vegetables, chow mein and Hong Kong noodles, claypots and many vegetarian and traditional plates like Curry Shrimp and Almonds with Tofu and Shrimp among the daily specials and more than 100 regular dishes. Drinks include homemade soy milk, soft drinks and Vietnamese iced tea.
The decor here is odd, yet the wood paneling is somehow comforting as you sit beneath the immense paper lanterns and the giant swordfish. Long Life believes a veggie diet is the secret to a long life, and its expansive menu is testament to the fact that the taste and skill of authentic Chinese cuisine can be delicious and inexpensive. It offers soy protein dishes and wheat gluten like Kung Pao Vegi Beef. The seafood is real, however, and includes Lobster Creamed Sauce Prawns. It offers a weekend Dim Sum brunch where dumplings and buns can be had for pennies.
From the outside, the bright pink neon may seem blinding, and upon entering you will be transported back to the 80s. The light is bright and music slightly retro (Gary Numan, Duran Duran), but this restaurant offers quick and inexpensive Thai cuisine. The best part is the late hours, so you can easily sate your midnight satay cravings. Try said satay with a noodle dish such as Yen Ta Fo, Pad Thai or one of the many rice plates, and wash it down with a Far East beer. For dessert, there is sticky rice with mango.
Within a grand hall-like atmosphere with dozens and dozens of tables, and beautiful traditional art on the walls, waft the smells of tandoori and curry and naan. The delights of both Northern and Southern cuisine are made fresh from the kitchen, and are different every day but usually include a variety of meat and vegetable samosas and pakoras. There are also tandoori dishes, and a variety of kormas, saags, masalas and vindaloos with chicken, lamb and fish. And for a few dollars more includes dal, soup, breads and dessert. It goes down well with Indian beer.
