Here is an update on Ha Long Bay's status; I went for my last meal at this little gem a couple of weeks ago. While giving talking with the staff, I asked there future plans.
He told me they were moving to North East corner of Tanque Verde and Sabino Canyon!!!
Heres hoping them all the best on the move and much success.
This place always has great food and service. The staff enjoys their work and it shows. I've eaten here dozens of times and never had a bad meal.
The reviewer is spot-on. On my last visit I ordered the plato and was disappointed when all three dishes turned out to be beef. The flavors of the three were just about indistinguishable and the whole thing was a watery mess.
Overrated, designer food that is not so good.
Looks like the prices have gone up considerably since the last time I dined at Poca Cosa. Wow.
And is she still getting free utilities from the city for being housed in a parking garage? Just sayin'.
Cafe Poca Cosa is my favorite restaurant. I have never had a bad meal there or experienced anything like the reviewer is describing since I discovered this gem nearly 10 years ago.
Mays went downhill starting with that so-called appetizing photo that accompanied the review in the Weekly. The photo of the eggs benedict above is a close second for most unappetizing food photo.
The Chicken and Waffles hatred isn't hatred so much as it's pure sensibility. If you eat that stuff to start with your judgment is seriously impaired. The larger problem is one's judgment is clearly obvious around one's waist and rear.
Everybody got that?
Back to hating.
no but Alvernon dead ended there,
Penca is very active on Facebook. They post photos of their dishes daily.
This sounds like another place to avoid, featuring mediocre food and plenty of it, just like all other American chain restaurants.
"...opened in 1980, back when the intersection of Fort Lowell Road and Alvernon Way was on the outskirts of town."
This was not "on the outskirts of town". Writer obviously did not live in Tucson in 1980.
Sounds like Penca - a mexican restaurant. It opened a few weeks ago and looks nice but I've yet to try it.
Hi guys... We just noticed something that looks new on E Broadway downtown (right next to O2 fitness, so 188 E Broadway or something like that) that looks like a bar or restaurant... Didn't have time to stop, but do yo uknow what it is?
@rconnelly, The name is Prickly Pops. You can find us on facebook. Thanks for asking. If you come by this the St. Phillips market this Sunday your first Prickly Pop is on the house. Just stop by and say howdy. We also make a mean prickly pear margarita mix.
@Local Yokel... oh i hope not
BIANCHI'S has GREAT Italian food; if you don't know where they're located, they are on the NE corner of Speedway and Silverbell. While it's way out of the way for most Tucsonans, it's well worth the drive. TANIA'S on Grande has been around for decades and they have a large menu; the food is delicious and they have some cold items to go as well. WINGS AND RICE located on the SE corner of Pima and Craycroft has great wings and a variety of sauces; their fried rice/hibachi rice is very good and a good twist on fried rice. VITELLO's in Catalina, AZ has great Italian food; I love their marinara sauce, Chicken Pinocchio, pizza, etc. HOGIE HOUSE has been around for decades and they have the best subs (on Mondays, 9" sandwiches are only $4.99, so they're $3.00 off). There are so many places to mention, so when I think of more, I'll post them.
Las Margaritas (Oracle and Grant locations) and El Doradito (on S. Park Ave.) have GREAT Carne Seca; El Doradito calls it 'Machaca,' but it's Carne Seca and it's SO yummy! I don't like El Charro; it's SO overrated.
dry river = gone?
The clam chowder at Trident is unbelievable. By far the best in Tucson, and rivals and beats many I have had right on bodies of water.
