The material is being used in lands dedicated to urban gardening, as well as used in fruit plantations, forestry seedbeds and coffee and cocoa plantations on eastern mountainous areas.

Guantanamo possesses over 500 sites producing organic fertilizers, which employ hundreds of rural…

Bad Customer Service makes ERA Café and Hookah Lounge the Worst in Astoria Queens

Bad Customer Service makes ERA Café and Hookah Lounge the Worst in Astoria Queens

Posted on 26 Feb 2012 at 11:29am

ERA Cafe and Hookah Lounge is located in Astoria Queens has a comfortable setting to enjoy a relaxing evening with friends. Smoke, drink and dine, right? But their service is downright horrible.

I went out with a couple of friends last week and ended up at ERA. We ordered two Hookahs. One of the Hookah’s was not working well. That fine, it happens but the server did not come to check on us. We were the only one of two parties in the place so it was not as if they were busy. I had to go all the ways…

Cabana Restaurant Worst Customer Service, Foreign Object Found In Food.

Posted on 15 Jun 2011 at 10:43am

June 15th 2011: On a trip to South Street Seaport NY with my family on June 14th 2011, we decided to have lunch at Cabana located at Pier 17.

One of the dishes we ordered was “Arroz Con Pollo”. While eating I began chewing on something that felt odd. After pulling it out of my mouth it turned out to be a large piece of plastic that was yellow in color same as that of the rice.

I notified the waiter and subsequently asked him to notify the manager. The manager came around and stood at my table and just looked at us. We were trying to figure out…

Theatre Café Metropolitan Ave Restaurant Review

Posted on 11 Apr 2011 at 8:12pm

This eatery is conveniently located on Metropolitan Ave in Forest Hills adjacent to the oldest independent movie theatre in Queens, Cinemart Cinemas. In fact the café and theatre are operated by the same company.

Out for a Sunday brunch, we decided to try this café. Sad to say, we were gravely disappointed with our meals.

We opted for the Old Fashioned Chicken Wrap and Cheese Ravioli. Both dishes lacked flavor and I would even go as far to say that the Ravioli was spoiled.

I would not recommend this eatery under any circumstance. If you want to use the movie theatre as it is never too crowded and…

Review of Spiced Restaurant Astoria Queens

Posted on 27 Mar 2011 at 6:00pm

Spiced Restaurant serves Indo Chinese, Thai and Indian Cuisine.

Located on Ditmars Blvd in the heart of Astoria, this trendy establishment is sure to get your taste buds going but be careful, if you like a good beer or wine, you will be disappointed. Spiced does not have liquor license after almost two years of opening its doors.

The décor is urban contemporary down to the plates but for some reason Spiced does not set their tables with utensils. I had to request them. The waiter forgot to bring them out with our appetizers.

The evening I attend, no more than three tables were occupied and it seemed like…

Wave Thai Restaurant Review

Posted on 14 Mar 2011 at 2:01am

This eatery is located in Astoria New York and serves up some delicious Thai cuisine.

At first I was hesitant to try this restaurant as I did not want to disappoint my taste buds on a Friday evening after a hard week’s work.

But you will be anything but disappointed. The ambiance is soft and gives you laidback feeling of being in a lounge. You will definitely feel relax and welcomed by the Buddha at the door.

For appetizer, we had the Spicy Calamari, Bangkok Wings and various Sesame Dumplings. For the main course we had the Red Curry and Pad Thai. We wanted to try more but…
