It was my first visit to Sushi Planet and it was such a great experience! We went at 4pm on Sunday so we were the only patrons eating in, although there were several customers for take-out. The waiter was so attentive and pleasant. He immediately gave a us waters and fresh homemade pickles. I asked if they have pots of jasmine tea or just cups. He said they serve by the cup but he can make us a pot! After ordering 4 pretty basic rolls the waiter brought us out a complimentary appetizer. I'm unsure of what it technically is called but it was 4 pieces of fresh salmon dressed with some oil, soy, scallion, and capers. VERY good! When we got our entree it looked beautiful and tasted the same! Like I said, we got basic stuff - spicy tuna/avacado, yellowfin/scallion, spider roll, and shrimp tempura. ALL DELICIOUS. After finishing the chef and/or waiter brought us out a complimentary "dessert" which was a piece of watermelon with a piece of fish - sorry unsure what kind! - and dressed with a lemon-y onion-y light sauce or foam. It was also very good. Also, the price was very reasonable. It was under $30 total for all we got. My boyfriend said he doesn't ever remember feeling so appreciated as a customer! The atmosphere was relaxed, cozy and clean. The music was cool and playing off one of the guys itunes. It might be difficult to bring a large party here unless arrangements are made. I noticed one large table for 8 in the back of the restaurant (could def squeeze 10) but the rest of the tables are 2 tops mostly. There is also a sushi bar with a few seats. I usually go to Wasabi house because it is so close to my apt - but they are closed on Sundays so decided to give this a whirl. It was definitely worth the walk! I'll def go back. They are also BYOB if you're having dinner.
We decided to try the Ashburner out for dinner because the menu looked great. So many choices led the 2 of us to pick 1 appetizer and 2 entres, all to share. First - quesadillas. Amazing. They had the perfect proportion of cheese to meat/tortilla, contained corn and were speckled with the tiniest bits of peppers, which gave the perfect amount of oomph without being overpowering. Second - White pizza with spinach and tomatoes. The tomatoes were a great sized chunk and despite loving garlic, I used non because this pizza had its own unique almost buttery richness. Third - Bacon cheeseburger - cheddar and medium well. The perfect burger! Came with a few delicious fries, was cooked exactly how we ordered and let me tell you about the bacon. I rarely eat it and when I do, its usually a fake piece with a burger. This bacon was so flavorful, I almost ordered a side. Next day - we had enough leftovers to each enjoy the pizza and a small slice of quesadilla, which we looked forward to all morning. Very very impressed. Also, the bill came to $26 (we didn't drink but they did have a fabulous martini offering) and the restaurant itself was nice inside. Will be back for sure!
I just bought a place a couple blocks from Caffe Valentino. When I moved in, I thought, great, when I'm hungry and have no food in the house, I only have to walk a couple blocks. My first weekend in the neighborhood, my friends and I decided to try it out, because none of us had ever been there. When we got there the place was pretty busy, (which surprised me because I hadn't heard of it until I moved up the street). Once we sat down, we were eying up the tables around us to see what they were eating. Everything looked and smelled great. We all got different stuff, and loved everything. I got Gnocchi with Red Sauce. It was clearly homemade and light. Probably the best I've ever had, and I love gnoochi. My other friend got the pasta special, which was Black Fettucini with Shrimp in a spicy red sauce. He said it was great. For dessert we had Tiramisu, also excellent. The service was friendly and accommodating. Any foodies who that haven't found this place yet, should go check it out.
The seafood was excellent, fresh and live when we sat down at our table. It was prepared in different chinese styles and was appetizing to all in our party of 6. It was a rather international group, ranging from Indian - Russian - Korean - Chinese - Bangledash. I highly recommend going their for the freshest and best tasting Chinese seafood. If you go with a group of folks and ask for their special meal packages the amount of food you get for the amount you pay is really reasonable. Our food ranged from seafood soup to little neck clams to lobster to roasted chicken. All for about $160 bucks total. Once we split the order by 6 and added tip, it came to about $33 or $35/person. This meal package allows everyone to sample a lot of different dishes and come back for more of their favorites, if coming alone. Additionally, it is BYOB, so bring your favorite beverages and enjoy yourselves.
The food was OK as far as the flavor of it, the best part about the food was that it was nice and hot. The wait for your food is extremely long u shouldn't have to wait 1hr for 2 or 3 platters. The platters were also a little pricey, If the ambiance and customers service matched the food I probably wouldn't had a issue with the price.The young ladies behind the counter are OK they lack customer service etiquette, especially when answering the phones. I hate to say this but they're kind of ghetto in the restaurant, but so is the owner. She (the owner) uses profanity entirely to much, especially in front of her customers and on her personal social media account which she advertises her business on. Had I seen that before I went to her restaurant I would not have went. Just because your in the heart of the hood doesn't mean you have to run your business as such.
The first time I heard of the Ashburner Inn was when my close friend started working there. The owner of the place seems like a very kind women and is always willing to let someone off of work if needed. One night I went to the place with my friends and family and had one of the best nights of my life. The food and drinks are great and the staff are great people. Since then I have been there many times and everytime I went I enjoyed myself very much. I could go to the bar with a whole bunch of friends or I could go and have a nice meal in the dining room with my children. I also attended a baby shower for a friend in their upstairs room. The place is set up perfectly with lots of room for the bar and eating but also lots of room for a dj a dancing. Over all this place is great!
This little restaurant opened recently with little fanfare. I went in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. They serve home style latino food such was yellow rice with beans, pork chops, empanadas, etc. For eight dollars, I got a huge heaping portion of yellow rice with beans which was the best I've had at a restaurant, a side of salad and stewed pork rib. It was more than enough for two people. The interior is simple but light and clean with plenty of room to eat in. The staff speaks mostly Spanish but you'd have very little trouble with English as well. They were incredibly friendly. I think it's cash only at this point. Definitely give it a try if you're in the neighborhood or nearby!
I am using this restaurant to have my wedding there in October. Great service so far. The invited me and my fiance to sit and listen to their band and eat their music at no cost. I have eaten there 3 times already at no cost, just because I am having a wedding in October. My parents were in town for the weekend and they allowed 10 people in to enjoy the music and the food. I had such a good time! The owner stopped by to chat to us several times and overall I am really pleased and can't wait to have my wedding here in October!
I work at Jefferson Medical and a Bumblefish franchise just opened up two blocks from me. We've been waiting months for them to open, and the wait was worth it. They have dumplings with various dipping sauces, fried shrimp rolls, healthy snacks, and of course, sushi. Really, really great sushi for the price. Everything is made a few minutes ahead of time, so it's great if you're in a hurry. Sure beats the sandwiches I eat at our cafeteria!
I anticipated the place to be another cramped south Philly establishment,but it did have enough elbow room. And aside from fruit coming with every dish,the food was good and they seemed to have somewhat unique items on the menu. Didn't get the dessert this time but they did have some unique ones there as well. I'm not one for the art shows and wine tasting they talk about having but I'll probably visit this restaurant again in the near future.
