Crazy Chicken

Hello ladies and gentlemen,

I hope you are having a great day so I went to the new spot in Lafayette, Louisiana, El Pollo Loco located at 3808 Johnston Street. The buzz and all the hype about this place was legit. It was packed, but still clean. They had fast service and the food it’s like fast food but healthier. Outside the tables had nothing set, no napkins, no condiments, we kept having to go in and out. But the mac & cheese was delicious. The chicken was crispy, soft, and tasted great. I had a lemonade it was normal, but mom was all excited they offered Vitamin D water. I also had the perfectly melted cheese quesadilla, tasted the rice, pinto beans, and the corn. It tasted like home food. However, the queso dip was ok, I expected more. Also, the chips really had nothing to it. Also, the churros were not my favorite, too much oil. I give it 4.0 starts for a fast food restaurant. Well that’s that ladies and gents.

The Kritic Says:

  • 4 Starts (for a fast food restaurant)
    • The place was clean and the decoration was nice
    • The food tasted like a home meal, fast food but kinda healthier
    • I liked that they had many people that could speak Spanish
    • The prices were good

St. Joseph’s Diner

Hello ladies and gents,

Hope you are having a great day, if you are not, I have a great way for you to make it better. How? By helping others. I normally go to St. Joseph’s Diner on 613 W Simcoe St, Lafayette, LA 70501, and I want to tell you all about it. I go there once or twice a month. But I don’t go there to eat, I go there to serve food for the homeless. Don’t get me wrong, the food that chef Dorothy and Chef Amilcar cook is great, after you serve, if there is enough food left over, you get to eat also, and it is delicious sometimes.

When we go there, we help serve, and even cook. I already got to help cook eggs. We normally go during the breakfast time because it’s less busy, but you can go help during the lunchtime and also for the dinner time. The people are very thankful and happy to see us. I like that after a while I stop seeing some people, so that means they are no longer homeless.

When we finish serving, we clean the tables, wash dishes, and sometimes we even clean the floor. I like to go there and I’m sure you will like to go there also. Anyone can volunteer, check this link for availability. You can also donate food or donate money Please do help when you can and that’s that ladies and gentlemen have a great day.

New Year, New Projects

Ladies and Gents,

I’m so sorry I haven’t been posting much. I wrote the posts, but mom has been so busy with work and school, she didn’t get much time to check my stuff and upload it. However, I have awesome things coming your way. Stay tuned because I will now be making videos, interviewing people, checking new places, and much more.

So, let’s start with a new post…give mom one hour and she will have it up.

Thank you for your support!

Illegal To Be So Delicious

Hello ladies and gents hope you are having a great day. So, some people (my friends at school) wanted me to share my opinion about Izzo’s Illegal Burrito. Lafayette has two locations, one on Ambassador and another on Johnston street. The one on 2010 Johnston St, Lafayette, LA 70503 is my spot. I love this restaurant and can’t have enough of it. It’s perfect for a quick delicious and still healthy bite. I always get a chicken quesadilla, chips and queso, and a lemonade. They take their time, but the cheese is melted, the chicken cut the way I like and well cooked but not burned. The queso sauce is also delicious with the chips not too thin or thick, just perfect. On Mondays they have activities for kids and adults can choose what they want in their burritos. I really like this place and how they ask me, not my mom, what I want, how I want it, and take their time to explain the stuff to me. For this and the whole atmosphere of the place, Izzo’s Illegal Burrito gets a 5 starts, is just that good.

The Kritic Says:

  • 5 Starts
    • This is a very laid back and fun spot to bring your kids. I love when Mom says we can go there.
    • The food is fast, but is still healthy. It all depends on you.
    • The prices are good. The service is great.
    • They have activities for kids, special prices for kids and a great menu for kids.
    • The place is clean and the decoration is cool, kinda like a sports place.

Chipotle

Hello ladies and gents, hope you are having a great day. So, this review is about Chipotle Mexican Grill located at 4231 Ambassador Caffery Pkwy #101, Lafayette, LA 70508. The place looked really neat. I had been there before, for one of the rewards for the Public Library Summer Reading Program, but I went back for my research of the best quesadilla in Lafayette, LA. I love quesadillas, and the seasoning of Chipotle’s chicken quesadillas was good but the chips that came with the children’s menu were too thin. The black beans were not that great either, it tasted like red beans and the seasoning of the rice was tasteless. They got 3.5 starts and that’s that ladies and gents.

The Kritic Says:

  • 3 1/2 Starts
    • The place was clean and the decoration was simple and straight to the point
    • Their quesadilla tasted good, but everything else didn’t
    • They were nice and patient explaining the menu
    • The prices were okay

Namaste and Namaskar to Masala

Ladies and gent, you hear so many things about Indian food, that it is spicy, that it smells, that it doesn’t look good. How about you hear this: it is delicious! I’ve been eating my Mom’s curry for years, and Mom I’m sorry but your curry is not even close to Masala’s food (I love you Mom but their food was great). Masala is located at 2208 Kaliste Saloom Rd, Lafayette, LA 70508 and we went there for my friend Rohan’s birthday and kept going back over and over. You should try it, if you don’t like it, they also have grilled cheese, chicken tenders and corn dogs. Mom ordered chicken and shrimp korma with garlic naan, my sister and I tasted it and loved it. I tried butter chicken, cheesecake and a mousse dessert. Ladies and gents, they get a 5. Yep! That’s that ladies and gents, have a great week.

The Kritic Says:

  • 5 Starts
    • The food was very delicious
    • The service was great, we were many but the waiter was great
    • The prices were good
    • The place was clean and had entertainment for kids
    • The owner sometimes comes out and asks us how everything tastes. I like that. It shows that he cares.

Ice Cream Flower

Hello ladies and gents, I hope you are having a great day. While in Houston I went to another place that I want to suggest you go too. It’s an ice cream place also in River Oaks, close to iPic. It’s the Amorino ice cream shop on 4444 Westheimer Rd c140, Houston, TX 77027.

Their ice cream flowers are so delicious. Here is the cool thing, no matter what size you get, classic, medium, or small, you can pick as many flavors as you want. I went crazy! But I got mango, banana, and a mix they do with passion fruit, raspberry, and strawberry. My sister also had mango and passion fruit. My mom got strawberry, coconut, biscotto, and some other flavors. It was all tasted really good, so they get 4 starts and that’s that ladies and gents. Bye.

The Kritic says:

  • 4 starts
    • Great selection of flavors
    • Quick service, but a small place for you to chill at
    • Price is great for all that ice cream
