Went on a Friday night for dinner - food and drink was great. Very busy, I would have liked my water refilled more often (a lot more often), but I can understand with the crowd they had. Tried the Kenyan beer and was pretty damn impressed! We started with the Aloko, or fried plantains with tamarind sauce. I could not get enough of the sauce, so good! The plantains were unlike others I've had, they were not crispy and french fry-like, they were slightly mushy, but not in a bad way, and I think I would have rather had them for dessert. My dinner-mate was not impressed with the plantains. For our entrees, I had the Tiep Dien (red snapper), and it was great. The rice was delicious, and the sauce that was over the fish was YUM! There was some sort of root-like vegetable thing that was on the plate that I didnt care for so much, but it was easy enough to push it aside! My mate tried the Dibi and was confident that he'd gotten the better plate. Was too stuffed for dessert! Will have to come back again!

This bar is a cool spot in Alhambra. My buddy and I went to get a quick drink at 2:30 in the afternoon and didn't leave until they closed. The biggest reason was due to the great bartender Gabby Corona. Anyone can bartend, but it takes personality to help define a bar. She's got a great personality. Since the moment she started her shift she made sure that we were comfortable. She understands the true meaning of TIPS = To Insure Proper Service. The rest of the staff was great too, but a big reason we'll be back would be from the service we got from a Great Bartender!
