Re: “Identity Crisis

For a $6 substitution, it had either be all-you-can-eat, or the chef had better be preparing these tableside and placing them on a gold platter. Seriously, WTF.

Re: “Kung Fu Noodle's Not a Knock Out

Former Az Daily - fair enough, I miss understood what you were getting at. Perhaps what the reviewer was saying they appeared authentic to him/her, but had no appropriate way of confirming the same.

Re: “Kung Fu Noodle's Not a Knock Out

What the inspector saw: Nine critical violations on June 3, including a pork roast thawed overnight at room temperature instead of in the refrigerator, staff washing hands without soap and rice stored in dirty plastic bowls. Staff was unable to answer questions on food safety.

What the inspector saw: Nine critical violations on Aug. 1, including “multiple small live bugs in sugar,” moldy vegetables, food kept at the wrong temperatures, a cook using the same spoon to taste food and serve food, and a dirty kitchen.

Re: “Kung Fu Noodle's Not a Knock Out

No one ever said anything about "A bunch of asians speaking chinese" [sic]. The article was talking about the 'very authentic appearing clientele'. This leaves open the possibility that the clientele could have appeared to be 'authentic' but may not have actually been 'authentic.' The speculation is hanging over this review. It's a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in a "Chinese Beef Burrito" and I want to know more.

Re: “Taco Time

I have ordered from there numerous times, the last time (10/1/2014) they provided no salsa, no silverware, no chips, the food was cold, and had very little taste. The last time the food was not good, no flavor, no chips included. We would not order from there again. Poor quality!!!!

Re: “Kung Fu Noodle's Not a Knock Out

Soooo the reviewer should have said "A bunch of asians speaking chinese"? Or they should have went up to them like the INS or gestapo and asked for their papers to validate their authenticity? Cause that would not be racist at all!

Re: “Kung Fu Noodle's Not a Knock Out

Great review until I saw "The very authentic appearing clientele ..." Typical lazy Tucson journalism, not verifying whether the clientele that frequents this establishment was in fact 'authentic'. Instead they just leave us with speculation from the writer that they probably were but we don't know for sure. Since this is Tucson we probably won't see any follow up on this article either.

Re: “Old-School Ambience

As good now as 30+ years ago when I first lived here. Saw Brian Bromberg perform here before he went to L.A. And got rich and famous!

Re: “Identity Crisis

Terrible place. I am a tucson native and love the new downtown. But this place is a TERRIBLE addition.

Re: “Identity Crisis

No mistake that this place is on the ground floor of student housing. I will avoid it like Ebola.

Re: “Identity Crisis

What an awful addition to our revitalized downtown. The developer and the owner should be put in stockades so we can throw milkshakes and stale pretzels at them. I don't see this place lasting. With any luck the replacement can tear down those obnoxious phallic signs/tvs.

Re: “Identity Crisis

Ugh. Sounds wretched. It's a shame our downtown got stuck with such a place. What's in Scottsdale should stay in Scottsdale.

Re: “Forever on Fourth

Got to try their Carne Seca. The original Panchos (1960s) was hard to beat.

Re: “Forever on Fourth

It's been a long time since I last ate at La Indita. After reading this reviewer's complementary review it won't be long before I try it again. Well prepared guacamole, flan and chili rellenos aren't too common, despite the abundance of Mexican restaurants in Tucson.

Re: “Forever on Fourth

Long Live La Indita! It was one of my first Tucson restaurants, and every restaurant following is compared to the amazing food La Indita prepares. If you've not experienced this Tucson classic it is time you get moving on it!
