HOW WE RATE: We’ve tasted it, and as always, we do a pool to see which one has won the heart of foodie experts.


When we first tried it, we are a little afraid of this place being overrated. Thankfully, it’s not. The place really hosts a great food – quite in a big portion (which is perfect for the gentleman).
