To eat bi bim bap, the egg has to be raw, which you will most likely have to ask for. Most Korean places in America serve a fried egg on top because of the American's fear of salmonella. It is served in a hot bowl in order to cook the raw egg. Also, use a spoon next time. In Korea, they use chopsticks for picking things up like meat or kimchi, but they use spoons to eat rice. No need to worry about being judged for simply using a spoon. Just a suggestion. A year in Korea and this is all I learned.
Would have been nice to add a sentence or 2 about the previous culinary tenants of this spot, for historical context. Or, perhaps the writer wasn't in these parts when there were previous culinary tenants. We don't have much historical context left in the local media.
Our first lunch there yesterday was delightful. The turkey sandwich was one of the best. The tortilla soup was tasty and unlike any other tortilla soup found in Tucson. Staff was friendly and my cup of tea warmed me on a chilly day. Price was right. Thanks for your service on Campbell. Watch out Beyond Bread.
Wow, great information. Timing of serving is key to a meal. The restaurant should not have a problom with this. Are they really professionals? Food changes as it sits and need to be eaten when prepared, not sitting for a few minutes.
Hopeful this article will create a change in the restaurant.
We love this place and have always had great service and great food. We have been here many times and it is a wonderful place to stop before or after a movie (theater is next door). They have good salads, some of the best pizza in town, and a good selection of beer including a few really good drafts.
Thanks for the catch, FTC. The sidebar has been added.
Hmm, the usual sidebar that lists the location and contact info seems to be missing.
Just a note: Don't post multiple comments, saying roughly the same thing, from the same IP address. We will pull them down.
Classy response Amanda!!!
Hello everyone, my name is Amanda and I am the owner of The Fix. I am heartbroken to read the article written. I am one single person who worked my whole life to save and open my own restaurant. I invested a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into the restaurant with no backing from investors or others. I pride myself on perfecting our recipes and listening to feedback from others. I have an amazing staff and even more amazing customers. I never expected to have this article come out bad and I will now work hard to fix the issues. I hope I can get some feedback from everyone and I will work hard everyday to fix what needs fixing. I am hoping for support from others to help us get this restaurant moving up and forward. We are only 3 months old and do not have anyone to learn from so we appreciate the feedback. But please remember the first year there are many growing pains and we are ready to work through them all. We just ask that you do not bash us as I am a good person working hard everyday to make others happy :)
this one is mostly for you Thomas, but for the rest of you these two restaurants prove simple can be done well
I dint know the owners. But I do know that the fix is a really good restaurant.
And saying mac isn't good for Tucson you're crazy. Pho restaurants are so popular and they serve hit soup. So that isn't a valid statement.
and honestly..if a Mac N Cheese based Mac N Cheese restaurant cant make great Mac N Cheese ( children make good Mac N Cheese) then they should cease making Mac N Cheese.
Just because its a local restaurant doesnt make it better than a chain.Thats a pretty low bar for a business to set for itself.Anyway, the whole concept of a Mac N Cheese restaurant in a town with this climate is stupid.Whats next..a mashed potato and gravy place? I just dont see what the writers would have to gain by writing a negative review of this place.
Obviously, the writers panning the review don't read the Weekly on a regular basis or they would know Jimmy writes regularly. Also, they would be aware that Adam didn't write reviews. It smells suspiciously like a friends of the owners campaign.
We food writers write positive reviews when there is something positive to say. We are some of the biggest backers of local businesses around.
I agree exactly with this review, and I really hope The Fix can step it up and become really great. I work nearby, and my and my co-workers have agreed that it's just ok and we really wished it were better.
Its Anne Murrays greatest hits over and over again.
This is the third review of this place, and by far the worst review. I guess either the others were there on a better faring day of ingredients and chef. I think the fact that the owner is the daughter of the Baggins' parents may also have something to do with favorable reviews.
The thing is that Tucson has a culinary voice. That cannot be said of many cities. It's a shame that Thomas can't hear the voice. Who knows the reason why.
