Mayan Grill, Taipei (Closed)

With growing emergence of Mexican restaurants, in both Shanghai and Taipei, I have seen both high end restaurants like Maya, everyday type of restaurants like Cantina Agave, and almost fast food types like Oola Mexican Grill. Mayan Grill, which opened in the spring of 2011, has entered with its own concept, featuring a great dining space, which...

Cantina Agave, Shanghai

I try to avoid certain ethnic cuisines while in Asia, Mexican being one of them. I have tried for years to try to accept Mexican foods in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and now Shanghai. Both in Taiwan and Hong Kong, with the large Asian American population, little Mexican or Tex-Mex joints pop up. The dilemma lies...

David Laris’ Yucca, Shanghai (Closed)

I recently got invited to Yucca – David Laris’ latest hot spot – Yucca. Coined as a micro-lounge, Yucca is located the Sinan Mansions 思南公馆. Yucca is a Mexican inspired menu and venue. Perhaps will be known for lounging and drink, Yucca’s food/appetizer/tapas was actually pretty good. In the slight 3rd floor space, with loft...

Ciudad is a Latin restaurant located in downtown Los Angeles, which is part of the Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger food empire. Noted restaurateurs, television celebrities, and chefs, Ciudad offers a great lunch alternative or happy hour with the large bar for downtowners. On this night, I had to arrange dinner for a large...

Oola Mexican Grill, Taipei (Closed)

One of the toughest cuisines to find is Mexican food. I take that back, there’s actually a few. I hear there’s one in Tienmu, maybe a couple in Taipei, and even on in Dansuei. I’ve been coming to Taipei, on a yearly basis and never had the urge to try Mexican food. Yet, when I...

Chili’s Grill and Bar, Taipei

My first experience at Chili’s was in high school, in Southern California. Back then, it was such a cool experience, different from fast food joints we were used to. Chili’s was the first type of sit down restaurant, that we, as high school kids, went to by ourselves. I remember it clearly, when we were...

Best Fish Tacos in Ensenada. Los Angeles

Best Fish Tacos in Ensenada. Los Angeles

I believe the direction and concept that The Best Fish Tacos in Ensenada (TBFTiE) is great one. Talk about what you serve and specialize in it. You also create conversation as to who has the best Fish Tacos. You could argue that Ricky’s Fish Tacos, Wahoo’s, or Taco’s Baja might have the best Fish Tacos,...
