well i realy like Bobbi's Restaurant the food is grate
If the dish had mushed plantains then it was "Tacacho", a peruvian dish originally from the Amazon (peruvian's rain forest). It is usually paired with fried dry meat called "Cecina" or a home made sausage called "chorizo".
Monika's description is correct. The reason you don't remember it is because it's not from Peru. Monfongo is a plantain-based dish from Puerto Rico, and Sabores del Peru, as noted in Monika's second paragraph, also serves several Puerto Rican dishes from chef Santos.
Thanks for checking with us though. I dined with Monika on her second visit and also really liked many of the flavors — and the mofongo for that matter.
in the paragraph number 7, i think you are mistaken about a word, it is My carne frita con "mondongo". I'm from Peru and i dont remember if there is a "mofongo".
I read in a local newspaper here about this article so i decided to check it online.
I like it tho.
If you are interested in Peruvian culture, please visit www.ninosdelaamazonia.org to learn more about everyday indigenous life in the remote Peruvian Amazon. You will see amazing photos, all of them taken by the children who live there. It is a unique perspective and a true document of their realities. You will also have the opportunity to help educate a child if you so desire.
Although we had a good lunch, and I would like to see this new place thrive, I must respectfully disagree with Matt on the savory crepes. The onion soup was indeed delicious, and a nice small serving so that you can actually have it as a heavy appetizer when you're really hungry. But we had the Corpus Christie and the Dinde for lunch, and, while they were good, they certainly were not "superb" (a superlative that should be reserved for superlative experiences).
The shrimp in the Corpus Christy were quite obviously previously shelled and frozen and not of particularly good quality--you know, the kind you get by the 5# bag in the frozen foods section of Wal-Mart. No off fish flavor, but with that telltale mushy texture and flat flavor. Again, it wasn't bad food. Just not memorable.
It's baffling to me that Davis (with his insistence that he doesn't want to "speed it up"and Carter, with all of their experience, don't comprehend *the* absolutely fundamental element of good cooking (nevermind great cooking): fresh ingredients. Didn't they tell them that on the first day of cooking school? Or maybe they just think that Colorado Springs diners are too provincial to notice?
I guess as long as long as bulk frozen shrimp earns a "superb" and Hershey's syrup gets a well-deserved slap on the hand under the heading of "brilliant batter," why bother stepping it up?
You all are funny and quiet stupid. In fact quiet moronic.
Please open your wallets now look closely at your money what does it say? it says in GOD we trust. this place is trusting that the lord will provide. You say that you wouldn't want to be in a place that has christian posters on the wall, well then don't ever go to a hospital, or a hotel/motel becasue in each on of them you will find a BIBLE. thats right the word of GOD is everywere and I for one will eat at this place every chance that I get. the food is excelent the price is a little high but so is the price of food. Can you make a meal at home for what this place gives you NO. so please get off your high hourse about this resturant and leave his faith alone we christians have been too quiet for way to long. we need to stad up for GOD and people who want tot share there faith.
Perhaps I wasn’t there when Mr. Gust was in the kitchen (7pm on a Friday). Maybe it also helps to be all buddy buddy with him.
If those stars had aligned then I wouldn’t have experienced the tragedy that was Maxi’s mini mahi mahi tacos. My experience was the complete opposite of this review. The taco shells were tough and the mahi was severely overcooked. It was typical hotel fare at its worst.
Your reviews have never led me astray in the past. This time I must respectfully disagree.
If I get a craving for raw food, Martine's collection of recipes would be the first place I would look. She is a talented, smart young chef who deserves attention. The influence of her father and brother are obvious in her "cooking" and she reflects the enthusiasm and earthy-ism of the environment in which she was raised. If the Today Show knows what it is doing, they need to bring this young woman to New York!
Martine is an up and coming chef that goes way beyond the ordinary. Who would think raw food could be so delicious and visually appealing? Martine has a talent to make even the meat and potato person take a second bite.
Oh, and when we went to The Craftwood after the menu change (which we didn't know about until we got there, since their web site had not been updated), our waiter developed a very bad attitude when I told him I am a vegetarian. We definitely won't be going back.
The Craftwood used to have a great vegetarian dish, which had a variety of vegetarian sides on it. It was a big disappointment when the new guy changed the menu and put an eggplant dish and a mushroom dish on the menu for vegetarians. What a disappointment - eggplant and mushrooms are such a cliche. One would hope that a chef would be more creative. We won't be going back to The Craftwood.
@LR Let me see if I've got this straight. You're complaining about a place you've never been to? A pre-emptive complainer. Wow.
It may be a privately owned small business, but it is still considered a public place, a place frequented by...the public. Yes, they have the legal right to plaster Bible verses all over, something I believe to be inappropriate, and yes, that is just my opinion and I don't have to go there. Good to get confirmation. Is Civics 101 over? Was that the lunch bell? Lets go have some bbq with the Lord, I hope he's buying!
I too have had dinner here and I thank God that this is a free country, the food is good and the waiters are nice and the place is clean despite wether or not the presents of Faith.
You know what's great about America, LR? That you don't have to go there. It's not a "public restaurant;" it's a "private restaurant," one of our many (millions of?) privately owned small businesses.
If I had a restaurant, I wouldn't be putting Bible verses everywhere, either. But thanks to our founders (not God), businesses can advertise their faith, and you and I can express our opinions here. It's a free country (pretty much).
However subtle (or unsubtle in this case), a public restaurant is no place to spread your personal religious beliefs. When I want to chow down on good BBQ (sounds somewhat overpriced and mediocre here), I don't want a side of the Lord or the Bible to accompany it.
I hadn't noticed the discrepancies in the midst of my general enjoyment of the 3 meals I've had so far at World Fusion. Lobster and pasta, Tom Yum soup, and, for the 11 year old 8 oz of medium rare filet mignon which he devoured. One really pricey glass of wine for me (the description enticed me), that was filled to the brim so I felt better about it. This is a really great restaurant in an area with a few really good restaurants. It was very busy on the night we went so I hope it survives. See more information from me and others on www.yelp.com or on the Yelp iPhone app.
Love Rasta Pasta so much! Chicken Montego Bay is the best! The crew is warm and friendly. Great job Greg, Rebecca and Matt! Thanks for bringing a piece of Jamaica to the Springs!
We had no issues when we placed and received our orders this past weekend. Great food and good service is what we got. I'm concerned that this is the same reporter that didn't like how friendly the staff was at Jimmy John's. Do you have a clue as to what you do like in customer service?
