Every year since 2007 I have released a set of annual awards of my own picks for the best in media and in life. Late as always, here are the EARLE awards for 2011. Enjoy.
I am trying to get this blog up and active again. So… gonna be tumbling a bit less and “pressing” a bit more.
Just got back from lunch at the New Chop Stix Cafe. I give it thumbs down. A Sushi roll was prohibitively expensive, They didn’t have sweet tea, and i ended up upsold into a weird tea/sweetened soy milk “signature” drink. The portions were not good for the money, especially compared to Shooting Star, which is a favorite of mine in the pan-asian cuisine arena.
The restaurant was overcrowded. Not in the sense that there were a ton of people, just too many tables and chairs in too tight of a spot. Also, the service was very subpar. The host was nice (he also got our drinks), but after that, it was difficult to get any help.
So… I’ll take a “fork” over “Chop Stix.”
