Deluxe Green Bo (Chinatown, NYC)

Website: Address:  66 Bayard St, New York, NY 10013 Rating: 5 out of 5 star Feedback: February 12, 2018 A Hole-in-the-wall restaurant and is Zagat-rated as one of the best soup dumplings in NYC and best for "cheap budgets 5 star due to a combination of FOOD, Location, and Service Not sure why they said you get not a great service, but the waitresses were really nice. Food-wise Soup Dumplings (Xiao Long Bao) was better than Joe's Shanghai, not too thick skin and really soupy Fried Pork Dumplings - thick skin but it was actually good despite that, and the sauce just went great with it, a bit sweet. Shanghai Fried Rice - Love it! Price-wise It was really cheap 5.95 for an order of 8 pcs Xiao Long Pao or Fried Pork Dumpling 7.95 for a serving of Shanghai Fried Rice

Raku Udon NYC

Website: Address: 342 E 6th St, New York, NY 10003 Rating: 5 out of 5 star Feedback: February 9, 2018 (Friday) Small place in the East Village, didn't even see it as there was a door with a very small sign and a menu There was only a 20 minute wait despite being a Friday evening, apparently normally it takes 1 - 2 hours Foodwise - amazing, Price is quite on the pricy end. Chicken Tatsuta-age marinated fried chicken Quite nice, soft meaty chicken, very soft taste but I think I might have preferred the usual karaages though Niku Udon beef short-ribs & honeycomb tripe ($17) Udon is very chewable and really good and feeling Bowl was huge Taste really great; meat are both soft and chewy Taste like "Bulalo" and a bit of sweet side

Urban Putt (Mission, SF)

Website: Address: 1096 S Van Ness Ave, San Francisco, CA 94110 Rating: 5 out of 5 Feedback: Really enjoyed this and was a bit surprised, the first floor was basically an indoor mini-golf course (14 holes) and was really fun. And for 12 dollars, you can play.  Really a good idea of having a bar and restaurant with mini-golf course especially when it is raining or cold here in SF. Only thing is that it is quite crowded so there could be a line just to get in.

Tried out Skewers and Churrones (Pork shoulders) - it was AMAZING! Squash / Calabaza Quesadillar It's OK.. don't like it that much! Churrones Skewers
