The Ways of Critiquing

Hello ladies and gents,

I am still enjoying New Jersey. Vacation mode 95%, the other 5% is just to let you know about an awesome program I did few months ago. I was invited to the Main Public Library, on 301 W Congress St, Lafayette, LA 70501, to teach other kids how to do a critique on their own. That was awesome! A major thank you to the people who came out, and thank you to the librarians who invited me.

We had 5 foods to critique: Two apple fritters from different Meche’s locations, two apples (one🍎 one 🍏), and the newest cereal that is called Donuts Shop (which by the way it’s artificially flavored). In my opinion, the first apple fritter was better than the second. But the other critics preferred the second one. The green apple was better than the red, but again the majority of the critics liked the red apple more. The Donut Shop was pretty good, most people enjoyed the cereal.

By the way, did I tell you that I had to do my presentation in english and French? It was a challenge, but it was fun. Well, ladies and gentlemen, that’s that. This was my experience at the Public Library and I loved it. Have a great day and enjoy the pictures.

IHop or IHob?

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great summer. Mine is going great. So I want to talk to you about IHop, or is it IHob? You must know now that it’s IHop, but because they serve breakfast and awesome burgers they had this publicity to make people talk more and check them out. The publicity worked because a lot of people started talking, going there, and that includes me.

I went there for a late breakfast and the place is still the same, new menus, but same service and deals. My sister and I had a silver five, the bacon was crispy, the eggs were a little buttery, and the pancakes were the best. But here is the best, from 4PM to 10PM, kids eat for free at IHop, more ways for me to eat pancakes while your mom tries the burgers and all the other stuff they have in the menu. Knowing my mom, not. She is not about that pancake life.

I give IHOP 5 starts and thats that ladies and gentlemen have a great day.

The Kritic Says:

  • 5 Starts
    • Great service when they are not packed
    • Kids are welcome and feel good at IHOP
    • They have activities for kids.
    • The prices are also okay. I can pay for my own food if I want to.
    • The food is so good. I could eat pancakes everyday.

FIL 2018

Hello ladies and gentlemen hope you are having a great day. It’s been a while, but it’s summer and I’m back. So I wanted to tell you about the stuff I’ve been up to.

First, let’s talk about Festival International. I went there to introduce two bands, Ladama and Casa Samba, but of course I tasted the food also. Mom gave me $20 dollars and told me to see if I could “festival” with that amount. But the pin that helps keep festival free was $10, so I was left with $10 to get a drink and food. It was enough but I wanted to try more foods and I was hungry, so mom just paid for the other restaurants.

I ate paella from Pamplona, hummus from Poseidon’s, and fried shrimp with fries from Norbert’s. It all tasted great, but the paella rice was mushy. It was fun presenting at festival and being there with my mom and my sister, but I didn’t like that people smoked a lot, although they had signs that they weren’t supposed to smoke. I also saw drunk people sleeping on the sidewalk. That’s not nice. My bracelet for the drinks wouldn’t loosen up, so I had to cut it off and next day it was awkward to use it. Mom also said that the merchandise was very expensive, but the music was good and we had a great time.

Well that’s that ladies and gentlemen have a great day and come back tomorrow for my next post on my talk at the Lafayette Public Library.

Aussie Land In Acadiana

Hello ladies and gents,

I hope you are having a great day. So I went to Outback Steakhouse located at 1600 West Pinhook Drive, Lafayette, LA 70508 and it was tremendously good. I ordered the ribs and Aussie fries with lemonade. Mom ordered lobster tails, and my sister ordered chicken tenders. I also ordered the Joey Sirloin, well done of course. It was all delicious, but the lemonade was a little watery. The fries were crispy which I loved. But what I really loved was the bread and butter. My sister and I decided to time them, to see how long it would take them to cook our food, and guys it literally took less than twelve minutes from the time we ordered to the time we got our food.

Their children’s menu was also fun. We got to know more information about Australian animals, we played games, and we googled facts about biggest fish and reptile in the world.

In my book I give outback 4.5 starts ladies and gentlemen, and that’s that. Have a great day.

The Kritic Says:

  • 4 1/2 Starts
    • The place had a relaxing feeling, I liked it.
    • They had a menu for kids with a lot to chose from, took me a minute to pick. I ended up picking two things.
    • The food tasted great and it was prepared fast.
    • Our server kept forgetting few things, but the service was nice and when I asked him a question he answered me, not my mom.
    • Prices were okay mom said.

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

Café Parque

Parents in or planning to visit Sao Tome and Principe,

Want to know where is the spot to take your kids? Here it is – Café Park. Talk about fun! This place is a new spot in the island. It is located inside the city’s Popular Park on the back side.

They transformed a bus into a movie theater, with popcorn, cotton candy, and other cool stuff. They have a place where you can race toy cars, race with small bikes, pretend you are actually driving a car, eat cotton candy, swing, take pictures with the Incredibles, and eat delicious food.

From hot dogs to traditional dishes, Café Park has it all. I first ordered my normal tosta mista and sumol maracuja, but Mom and her friend, Djamila, ordered gizzards and conch (búzio do mar), it tasted so good I licked my fingers. The only things you must keep in mind is that service is very slow, we waited long to pay our bill. Also, if you are younger than 12 years old, you can’t go inside the racetrack with the driving simulator, what was actually a bummer, since is just a simulator, you are not actually driving. But Mom and Djamila explained to me why I couldn’t do it. Because of all that, they got four starts, and that’s that ladies and gents.

The Kritic says:

  • 4 Starts
    • The food was delicious
    • The employees were great, but service was very slow
    • Sao Tome money is complicated, but I guess the prices were alright. Mom kept ordering things, which means it wasn’t expensive
    • They had so much entertainment for kids and adults that the place is absolutely awesome
    • The place was clean and had no mosquitoes

Food Garden

Hello ladies and gentlemen, I hope you are having a great day. So, I went to Olive Garden on 5743 Johnston Street, Lafayette, LA – 70503. Let’s start by saying that when you get there the smell makes you think that everybody took their shoes off, but it’s okay, is just the cheese, and I love cheese! So I ordered cheese pizza and mozzarella sticks, but kids can create their own spaghetti and order other things. My mom ordered calamari, chicken alfredo, which came with delicious bread and salad, and then as dessert tiramisu. If you read my Chillin at Chilli’s, Olive Garden has the same ipads with games that can entertain kids, they also give you coloring sheets and crayons. The only thing I didn’t like is that although the restaurant wasn’t full, the service was horrible. The lady at our table brought us food but no utensils, we had to wait long to start eating our food, with our food in front of us. They also had a fly inside the restaurant, I’m glad it didn’t touch our food.

The Kritic says:

  • 2 1/2 Starts
    • The food tasted and look very good
    • Service was not good
    • They had a fly inside the restaurant and that’s not good
    • They had entertainment for kids but it was cold in there
    • Mommy didn’t complain about the price and she gave the waiter a good tip, but we won’t go there again for sure
