Bubbies Homemade Ice Cream & Desserts

If you're a townie and you haven't had ice cream at Bubbies, you're missing out. Their frozen creations have the most outrageous names but all of them are good. If you love mochi ice cream, you'll find yourself wanting one of each flavor. Some of the mochi ice cream flavors are seasonal. The best one I've had so far was the li hing mango. It was mango flavored mochi sprinkled with li hing powder and mango ice cream in the center.

They get very busy and the line comes out the door but as long as you have a group of friends to keep you company, it won't be too bad. If you don't want to stand in line, I recommend coming on a weekday around 10pm but if it's a warm night, no guarantees.

BLT Steak

I'm not a big fan of steak but I saw their restaurant week menu and so I wanted to come. I asked a friend to make the reservation and the earliest time we got was 9:30pm. We were seated outside. It was nice for awhile but then it got really windy and then the rain came. On top of that, the cars passing by were very noisy. So, I don't recommend sitting outside.

The taste of their food is alright. I don't know if they normally give all their guests complimentary items but we got the brushetta w/ pate, popovers, and fudge brownies. The popovers and brownies were very good. I enjoyed the steak. It was a bit chewy but it was well seasoned. I also liked the crepe souffle, it's very airy and light. I recommend sharing because the portion is quite big.

Hiroshi Eurasion Tapas - CLOSED

This was my first time here and I came just for the restaurant week menu. The food is very good but the wait for each dish to come out was really long. I was sitting in there for about 2 hours. Normally, I want to be done with dinner in 1.5 hours.

If you do have 2 hours to kill, I recommend coming here. If you like to eat between 6pm to 7:30pm, I also recommend making a reservation. They are super busy.

YuZu

They just opened this month. Their menu is very limited but they will be adding more items next month. I stopped by for lunch and I wasn't sure what to expect. I ordered 2 items and I thought the taste and presentation for both were very good. Instead of doing nigiri sushi, they form their rice into the shape of a ball and then wrap the fish around. It's new and it's different.

The prices are very reasonable and the food portions are big. I was expecting a small bowl of udon and it ended up being bigger than the size of my stomach. I recommend the yakitori, it's really good. This is one restaurant that I'm adding to my favorites list.
