Starry Night in Richmond 9/10
http://www.starry-night.ca/

The fusion food is great, a bit pricey, ~$30 for a 3 course set menu. Ambience is great, excellent services except couple waitresses seem to be standing around quite often

Heart Attack Grill in Phoenix.

TERRIBLE.. 2/10. Burger wasn't as tasty as I'd hoped it to be. In-and-Out Burger is far better.

Pics later, when I return home. The buns were greasy as if they were dipped in oil. Everything was just excessively greasy. It's not fun to touch a bun that is so oily.

haha, it's obviously more quantity over quality. Besides, the greasy bun is supposed to help with the heart attack!

Isn't that the restaurant with the hot waitresses too? Screw the pics of the burger, I say pics of the waitresses!

NIMBY Burgers

Had a regular NIMBY burger with vanilla milkshake. Shared a basket of fries with my lady friend. She had the NIMBY burger with cheese. Total came to $17.89.

Burger - 8/10. Was just like In'n'Out Burger but it did not come with onions.
Fries - 8/10. Again, much like In'n'Out's fries. These are fresh cut fries and made to order.
Milkshake - Seems like they used a low-grade ice cream to make their milkshakes but I'll give them a 7.5/10 for trying.

Overall, including service and wait times - I'll be generous and give NIMBY Burgers an 8/10.

Agreed, but no triple Os in the states.. plus it's a bit more money. You get what you pay for though.

Deer Garden, a new noodle shop 2nd level of the plaza where Twinkle and Michigan Noodle House is

Heres the menu:

note: this is just the "make your own noodle" menu, they also serve baked rice etc.

You can see the variety of noodle + toppings and soup base for you to choose from. For a $1.50 more you can add some other food, i chose to get the fried chicken wings



tastes very similar to the "fung sah" chicken wings at aberdeen foodcourt

here is my noodle:


i got the Chaochou style dried fish and minced pork fish soup, with pork intestine and fish puffs(?)

Rate: 9.5/10
I love the soup, drink could've been better but can't complain it was decent
very filling especially since I eat a lot
