Hip Cuisine deserves another ½ star.... The trio de ceviches was outstanding! Each one of the three version were great; none better than the other, just different in flavors but fantastic. The seared tuna medallions with a side of seaweed risotto was also very good. The only thing that held back the full 5 star rating was the lack of seasoning on the crust of the tuna. The fish was seared properly and it was firm with true tuna taste and texture. The risotto was hot, creamy, but al dente. The seaweed taste was subtle and interesting. I enjoyed this meal greatly.
It is upsetting to see a cashier so poorly trained. It took 5 minutes before the cashier knew how to ring up the order. Once the order was ready, the cashier was on her cell phone, barley making eye contact. She just handed over the cup and pointed to the spoons. The strawberries and cream was basic. Not enough strawberries for sure.
In my opinion, there is no need to eat at Nomada eatery again. The food wasn't good enough to warrant the hassle to get to Casco. The Crispy Tuna Salad is way too small for the price and the "fresh Tuna" was overcooked, too hot to be put on any fresh cold dressed salad greens, and lacked any seasoning. The greens and dressing itself was very good. The Nomaba Burger was a sloppy mess. No real taste to the meat at all and the bottom of the bun was soggy and fell apart practically immediately.
Ed-Lyane has a very limited menu. The "main" dishes are all based on a something on bread, So to try to sample more of their menu I stated with a Caesar salad. The salad was ok, but far from a Caesar salad. The "gratinado" that I ordered on toasted pan integral was better than I expected. The flavor of the beef was excellent. I would be more content if they topped the bread with much more of the beef and cheese mixture. The bread was more like a pumpernickel as compared to whole wheat. This was quite overpriced for what it was. I had a maracuya beverage that was very refreshing and tasty. The place is very basic in the decor. Very casual. The service in the exposed kitchen is very slow. Only one person doing it all in the food prep. I will go back to try some other menu items, and ask for double portions.
There is nothing that takes away anything from Malasaña Crib. The food is good, nice sized portions, great service and it comfortable. The ranch salad was fresh and crisp with a healthy dose of avocado and palmito. The Angus Rib Eye steak was tender and flavorful. It comes with a chorizo and waffle fries that are a nice complement to the steak. I really like this place.
This place is definitely family friendly. Plenty of kids everywhere. The service is very good and the prices are quite reasonable. You can eat a lot of good food for not a lot of money. The guacamole, in my opinion, was very bland. I would have added a few drops of lemon juice and salt to the guac. The beef burrito was pretty good, but was very one dimensional. Only beef, nothing else, was rolled in the tortilla. The tacos de filete was also very tasty, but again, kinda boring. No texture or flavor differences. The flan is quite small for the price, but that is made up for but the oversized margaritas. The tamarind margarita was fantastic and quite different.
I have been to Solomon's Deli numerous times and the food is consistently delicious and beautiful. My favorites are the Turkey Mont Royale and their smoked meat. The lentil soup is a great starter, tasty and hearty. Today I had the cheesecake for dessert and it was fantastic, creamy and firm with the perfect texture.
Bakkus is a pleasant place to eat. Never too busy or noisy, at least during the lunch hours. The baked wings are always a good option. And the whole wheat pizza crust makes the pizza somewhat more nutritious.
