Flour + tea = happy me 🙂

It’s a little bit out of the way to go to, but drop by if you’re already in the area and get their brown sugar milk tea and green tea mochi bread!

Taste in Mediterranean Food

What’s good food without good service?

Customer service is extremely important in the food industry. No matter how delicious the food is, poor customer service will ultimately ruin your meal. If the food isn’t that great, service still has the power to elevate your meal. To put it simply – being in a good mood will make everything in life seem better (this doesn’t only apply to food!).

Perhaps it is because they are a family business, but Taste in Mediterranean has some of the warmest customer service I have ever received. They treat you as if you are their friends, which makes the food taste even better than it already does. You can not only tell how much they value their customers, but also taste the wholehearted love they put into their cooking. (more…)

Sukiyaki

Sukiyaki is a stew that consists of beef, noodles, and vegetables served hot pot style.

The interior of the restaurant has a modern feel and the bathroom is very clean (sorry, don’t have any pictures). The food is good, but the portions are small because it is tapas style. The only thing odd is that they play Spanish music in this otherwise very Japanese restaurant! Perhaps to emphasize the tapas-styleness? No se ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
