The bacon was the best part of this burger because it was cooked perfectly. The patty was tender enough but a bit on the bland side. It could have been seasoned a bit better so thank goodness for the bbq sauce. Overall, it was ok.

Mmm, this was a great, creative Vietnamese salad. The combination of ingredients was great and it was pretty hearty for a salad. I’m a sucker for eggs on top of everything so they had me there. I especially liked the lotus root relish because it was very different.

This was decent. I thought the mole sauce was good, but it could have been a bit more complex and rich in flavor. Definitely a good amount of food for the price though. The service here is hit or miss though. They completely frustrated me at times…

These enchiladas were ok, but I had actually ordered them “for here” so it was annoying to sit at a table and eat out of a “to-go” container. I don’t understand right now…!
