I’ve been in the neighborhood for over 60 years now and that use to be a vegetable stand named “McMuffin’s Vaggies” Oh how i miss the good ol’ days! But Korean food is probably the best food on earth and i hear Kim Chee is the new French Fries… ohh sorry i meant Freedom Fries. Maybe we can rename Kim Chee to Obama Chee. Or Trump Chee in 2016!


i lived here for a long time yet i dont care……because i like to cook and experiment with food ill try these places once or twice we order different items see if we like it then try and cook it at home. but then my job is a short commute and i dont have to work crazy hours or the work of 3 people.

Avoid the Noid

I have a 100% accuracy rate judging local eateries.

This restaurant will succeed even if they are mediocre.

I am a dyslexic mathematician. The golden girls of Sunnyside spa need a place to rest their arthritic hands.


heh, probably. reclaimed wood, wine and beer license, that’s all you need. still, good luck to them.
