I had heard good things about the spot from the only two people Iâ€™ve known who had been there, one of whom was Chinese. While the restaurant didnâ€™t exactly disappoint, I think my visit was a classic case of unduly raised expectations.
For a year, I had thought that the restaurant sandwiched between the UNMIL outpost, and the Spriggs Payne Airport was no more. Thanks, however, to the invitation of an aviation executive (the most distinguished of any of my dining companions since Iâ€™ve initiated these reviews), I discovered that I had been misinformed.
Despite its relative inaccessibility, for anyone wishing to cross over Providence Island and the Gabriel Tucker Bridge, Iâ€™d urge taking the time to partake in the Evergreenâ€™s Korean cuisine.
I have a colleague (the frazzled photographer mentioned in a previous review), who reveres the Bishoftu Ethiopian Restaurant. He has previously declared it to be one of his favorite restaurants that he has sampled in his illustrious history of restaurant going.
I stepped into Phoenix Chinese Restaurant for the first time for the occasion of a solitary 31st birthday dinner. With the exception of a Chinese UNMIL worker sitting beside me on a flight from Brussels, Iâ€™ve not encountered anyone who has ever patronized the establishment.
From my handful of visits to Mama Susuâ€™s, Iâ€™ve not had an unpleasant meal, but the sense of satisfaction Iâ€™ve detected in my dining companions has always eclipsed any pleasure that Iâ€™ve been able to derive.
Being without a car, a visit to Anglers Bar and Restaurant, located in the hard to access purgatory of Redemption Road, has always been a steep order â€” like the steps to which one descends onto its dining area.
The Garden Restaurant, located in Paynesville on Tubman Boulevard midway between the Ministry of Health and SD Cooper Road, has always struck me as being a bit of a mystery. I assumed it was a Chinese restaurant, but was never too sure, and often wondered if it was actually open for business.
