Spoiler!


What's the name/address of this Asian mall? I was in LA/Anahiem last week. All we did was hit up late night Chinese food near Garfield/Atlantic in Montery Park.

On the last day, we went to Orochon in Little Tokyo. That was pretty good but I still like Santuoka better.

Cork n Fin

Was there last Friday for a friend's b day

-Caught the tail-end of the happy hour, oysters were $1.5 each (Rodney's better if you're looking to have oysters)
-Set menu at $32, 3 courses. More like a tasting menu
-Services was okay, but the waitress said she can't do split bills for a party>8 which was kind of inconvenient


Overall 6/10

fucking rip-off place, the portions are so tiny. Basically you are paying for a small bowl of "oil rice" and a few pieces of fat chicken (drum stick meat). The soup is only filled half way. For close to $8, you can find better and bigger portions food elsewhere. Its definitely not cheap. If you look inside, looks like they hire "cheap labour" (rural china fobs) to make the chicken for them, so who knows how dirty food is prepped and handled inside.

Its $7.25 plus HST for the meal BTW. Highly not reccomended if you are hungry because its more like a snack and i'm a small eater too.

^lmao you should go to the actual restaurant. Even more expensive! But the reason behind using the drum stick meat is because it's dark meat and it's more tender/silky or whatever lol

i was just refering to the above poster about him saying its 'super cheap" when its definitely not cheap. The flavour isnt even all that great. I would rate it 6/10 at best.
