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.

  • 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

Hopdoddy

Hello ladies and gents hope you are having a great day. Today I’m going to suggest a Houston place for you to go when you are there. It’s a burger place and every time I go to Houston I ask my mom’s friend Adilson to go there. It’s called Hopdoddy Burger Bar and is located close to the iPic, on 4444 Westheimer Rd H100, Houston, TX 77027.

The place is in River Oak so you can walk and enjoy your afternoon talking, shopping, catching a movie, and enjoying great, delicious, and unique burgers. I ordered fries, a bacon cheeseburger, and a lemonade. Mom had a chicken burger called the thunderbird, and my sister had a grilled cheese.

It was so good that you must try it, I gave them four starts; and that’s that ladies and gents bye and happy November.

The kritic says:

  • 4 starts
    • Delicious and unique burgers
    • Nice atmosphere for everybody
    • service is a bit slow and they don’t have activities for kids
    • Prices are okay

In No Brazilian House

Hello ladies and gents,

For my Mom’s birthday we went to Rodizio Grill located at 4243 Ambassador Caffery Pkwy #101, Lafayette, LA 70508. The place is like a meat buffet, with a salad section and desserts. There is a wooden block with a green and red part; to keep the meet coming turn the green part up, to stop it turn the red part up. The decoration and the atmosphere of the place looked good, but the service and the taste of the food compared to real Brazilian food was disappointing. The foamy lemonade didn’t taste good, mom’s drink, she said tasted horribly too. My sister spilled her lemonade and it got the table and the floor wet, but they didn’t clean it, we had to eat dessert with everything wet. After visiting Brazilian restaurants like Fogo de Chão and Chama Gaúcha, Rodizio Grill didn’t offer the typical Brazilian taste, not even the black beans, the farofa, or the fried plantain. For this reason they get 2.5 starts and that’s that ladies and gents, have a great day and Rodizio please don’t barbecue me.

  • The Kritic says:
    • 2 ½ starts
    • The food is good, but not truly typical Brazilian food.
    • Our server was great, but there was nothing for kids, no activity or a way for us to feel welcomed.
    • The decoration of the place was nice, but no Brazilians at the place and the birthday song with English accent didn’t sound too good.
    • Mom didn’t talk about the prices, but she was very disappointed she went there for her birthday.

Dragos, Lafayette’s Seafood Home

Hello ladies and gents,

Long time no read. I am all caught up and ready to start letting you know where I’ve been, seen, and what I’ve tasted. Let’s start with the new spot in Lafayette, Louisiana. Located at 3151 Johnston Street, Dragos blindsides you from the outside and the inside. I was amazed at how clean, quick, and fun this place was. I ordered a lemonade, Lobster Mac & Cheese, and Fried Gator Bites. It was my first time tasting alligator and it was delicious; tasted like chicken, but a little bit thicker. Mom had Lobster Marco, and my sister had Chicken Tenders with Fries. They are the kings of seafood, but guess what? If you don’t feel like eating seafood, they also have Red Beans and Rice, Jambalaya, and other meat dishes. For their excellent service, tasty variety of food, and different atmosphere, I give Dragos 4.5 starts. The food was expensive but you got to pay for good food and that’s that ladies and gents have a great day.

  • The Kritic says:
    • 4 ½ starts
    • Incredible food and service.
    • Kids are welcome but no kids coloring sheet; but, the kid’s menu is great.
    • The place is very clean and the atmosphere is nice.
    • The prices are high, but much worthy.
