Cotton & Copper

My husband and I have started to come here fairly regularly for "date night" - really love it (even though there's no happy hour). The atmosphere is great, the cocktails are STELLAR (and I mean STELLAR), and while the menu is limited, every single thing on there has been super delicious. (Well, with...

Re: Hash Kitchen - breakfast in Scottsdale

I and three others went to the Hash Kitchen in Chandler (near Whole Foods on Ray Road) a few weeks ago and were really disappointed. Super crowded, super LOUD music. Ordered what I heard was a "must-have" to start with - the Cannoli donuts - and they were...meh. Hubby ordered the Corned Beef Hash, a...

Re: Foodnik Friday 11/18 - Asian Hong Kong Diner @ 11:30 AM

Ugh...sure wish I could...but too far from work to get there and back in a reasonable amount of time. :(

Re: Non-chain Tempe Steakhouse

As I drove by it the other day, I happened to notice "steak house" signage on the newly rebuilt Minder Binders at University and McClintock...but I also noticed "San Tan Flats at Minder Binders" on the building. Didn't know they ran the place, and not sure how the food is here, but the steak I had a...

Re: Hot Noodles Cold Sake

Posh Ramen and Obanyaki were awful...i don't get it I can somewhat understand if Posh/HNCS ramen style isn't your taste since it isn't completely traditional but the okonomiyaki I call blasphemy on...I absolutely love it and think it's phenomenal. Okonomiyaki of course does have a lot of different ...

Re: Hot Noodles Cold Sake

Managed to get over here today - great stuff! Love the touchscreen ordering system at the counter. Smart to keep overheads low and not have to pay wait staff. Also love the vibe; some counter seating and a few tables, decor is nice and clean. Unfortunately the liquor license hasn't come through yet,...

Re: Otakumen

I was thinking of trying this ramen place, but I haven't seen any recent posts and many comments on yelp seem pretty bad. Have we seen no improvement? If not this place, then what is your favorite traditional ramen joint in the valley? Thanks! Looking for tasty ramen I have no problem with the rame...

Re: Ahi Poki Bowl

Thanks for the review, Barbara. I went by today. Just ok is a bit above what I'd give it. LOL...I was trying to be kind. Yesterday I went to Coconuts Fish Cafe and had THEIR ahi poke...OMG...SO much better and pretty much what I had in Hawaii. I won't be going back to Ahi Poki Bowl. Sent from my SM...

Re: Ahi Poki Bowl

I went and checked this out the other day for lunch. I think someone had given an analogy that it was like Chipotle with poke...and that was certainly true with the setup. You choose your base (white rice, brown rice, salad...or a combo of rice/salad). Then you pick either two or three (fairly small...

Re: Buck & Rider

My husband and I went to happy hour here one day...sat at the bar... and while it wasn't horrible, we won't be going back. Way overpriced for what you get, and the happy hour "deals" were not very appealing at all. No deals on the oyster bar (which is one of the reasons we went there) - at least the...
