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.




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.

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

Chillin At Chili’s

Hello ladies and gentlemen, I’m sorry I haven’t done a post in a while, I was busy! Ok, so now let’s talk about Chilli’s. Chili’s Grill & Bar is located at 1734 W. Pinhook Rd, Lafayette, LA 70508. Chilli’s is a good place for kids. They have ipads for kids where they can play so many games and you don’t have to pay for it. I loved that! We went to celebrate a friend of Mom that was getting married, Mr. Guru, and our table was huge, more than twenty people. I ordered pizza, my mom ordered southwestern egg rolls and chicken/steak fajitas. It all tasted very delicious and Mom said the prices were good too. So, that’s that ladies and gents, have a good break.

The Kritic Says:

  • 5 Starts
    • The food was 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

Pizza Is Art

Hello ladies and gentlemen, today I went to Pizza Artista and it is a great place. It’s located at 5904 Johnston Street, Lafayette, LA – 70503. It’s very clean and fun. I got a cheese pizza with cheddar and feta cheese. My sister got pepperoni pizza and mom got some weird pizza with no tomato sauce, just olive oil, corn, with carrots (who in that world puts carrots in their pizza?! My mommy I tell you) and a bit of chicken. Guess what? You create your pizza. Not with your hands, but you can tell them exactly what you want and see them prepare it right there in front of you. Also, you don’t have to go to a restroom to wash your hands, they have a machine where you can wash your hands. They are very nice so leave them a comment, its right by the corner where you get the crayons and coloring paper. That helps them improve or know they are doing a great job. That’s that ladies and gents, have a great day.
