This is a nice place for a quick bite or to linger with friends. Their sandwiches are tasty, and they have a nice variety of baked goods and drinks. This shop in Alhambra is the original store.
I also applaud what this rescue does. They do charge high prices for the pets, so they could cover the cost for dogs that stay there forever (literally). No pets get put down here, and some actually have health conditions. They have ALOT of animals here, and ALOT of beagles. But they have other breeds and mixed breeds too. I adopted my dog there, and couldn't be happier. I witnessed them do a child test on a dog who was potentially being adopted by a family with small children, so they try to match the pet to the family. The place does smell like urine, which is expected, especially since some of their dogs get to rome free in the court yard.
This clinic is usually quite busy, and it appears that many of the patrons have taken their pets here for years. The staff is friendly. The two vets are both knowledgeable and helpful. However, when it comes to the vaccination schedule, I was quite confused. The new guidelines recommend most vaccines every 3 years (for adult dogs), except the Bordetella. But this office recommended annual vaccinations, and even a 6 month parvo vaccine for my adult dog. When I called for clarification, the vet tech said that's what they recommend. This makes me wonder whether they are not up to date with the latest recommendations or are they out to make money from the vaccines.
I moved into the area, and was in need of a new vet. I came upon this vet's website, which showed how this office travelled to New Orleans after Katrina to help the animals affected by the the hurricane. I was really impressed by that. The office is nice and clean. Dr. Ena and the vet techs really seem to love animals. My dog is on the shy side, and she took the time to get to know her (and bribe her with yummy treats). I highly recommend this vet.
This place has a fun decor, and the service is pretty good. Most of their dishes are tasty, with large portions at a reasonable price. I always enjoy a cup of French Onion Soup and the raisin nut muffin/bread. I've enjoyed almost everything I've tried, but I think the full salads could be better.
I would agree that their prices can't be beat. The noodle dishes are average, I feel there is not enough "stuff" in there. The BBQ is tasty, but I worry about their grade C for cleanliness. Instead, I would recommend going a couple doors down to the "Shanghai Style Restaurant" (see my review).
This is a good restaurant in a non-descript strip mall. Good prices and good sized portions, and their "specials" menu can't be beat. The food is tasty, but not too salty or greasy like so many other Chinese restaurants. Their 'shiao lung bao' (little steamed buns) are quite good, and I also recommend the Shanghai style short ribs. Very casual and not much in the way of decor.
This is a great Korean BBQ buffet restaurant. The prices are very reasonable for all you can eat! The variety is great. The meats are well marinated and tender. The salad buffet offer various Korean side dishes. The sushi selection is limited and average though. The place is huge and airy, and not smokey at all in the main dining area. But it can get stuffy in one of their party rooms. There is plenty of parking in the back. The staff is helpful and friendly, but most only speak limited English.
Lots of food for a low price. Expect the quality to be mediocre at best. My husband comes here to eat the crawfish! Often crowded. Not my favorite.
The food is good, typical of all Sam Woo restaurants. The place is usually packed, which is also typical. Fast service, but not particularly good. Prices are reasonable. I prefer to take out from this place, since there is no real ambiance and it's usually quite stuffy from all the people!
PROS: good food, reasonable prices
CONS: Very busy. Sometimes parking is tough.
