Re: “Hokkaido Seafood Buffet

We are full aware that when you go eat somewhere if the food is bad or the product not supplied is as the following explanation most reputable restaurants will send a responsible person to at least apologize but i like to share our experience at this restaurant with bullet points 1. First of all the is a buffet style all you can eat which is typical with oriental restaurants which most people has visited at least once in their life 2. this is no cheap at least $20 per person however a small sign at entrance not visible hand written says anything over 7 crab legs charge is $1 per leg please notice that the crab legs are the smallest and thinnest we you have ever seen. 3. we like crab legs and shrimp that's why this place was selected we figured high price probably equals to good product and service 4. Went to get crab legs to our surprise just about 4-5 thin legs buried in hot water was there had to wait 10-15 minutes 5. Upon getting the 7 LEGS returned to the table to find out there is no meat in it, yes just a flimsy skinny leg but absolutely Zero meat we said well lets get the waitress, which came over with disbelieve has all the unbroken empty shells including pincers ( if that is what they are called) are empty, she say go get some more, well there very little out so another wait in the meanwhile ate some peel and eat shrimp so my family the same. 6. finally more crab legs are out went through he same procedure with same results no meat in it at all, now they call the person supposedly to be in charge ironically same guy the greeted at door, very hard to understand but the issues was that he would not let us leave without more tries of the crab legs so we were in a way sequestrated in the place, i nicely asked him three time but than he says come to desk speak to manager so I went. 7. Everyone there was speaking what i think was Chinese and did not really explained what was going on made me feel uncomfortable as i think some other individuals under same situation would be, the customer service experience was bad to say at least, the manager looked at me with a smirk on his face and said quote "just eat rest of food its ok and pay" !! at that point i got upset but i kept my cool i asked the 3 waitresses which witness the crab leg but all sudden couldn't speak any more English but the entire outcome was what I think Chinese language, the waitresses were dismissed and left with head down. 8. Now the greeter and this other oriental lady said go back to your table quote'' we cook a batch of crab legs just for you" please note we are a family of 5 and the rest have picked a couple things but I asked for them to stop eating until we sort this out 9. new batch came in steaming hot with hot water pouring out still, for all of you that have had crab legs before you know now its like bending a piece of rubber same results and situation getting worse, i told them that i just wanted to leave greeter guy said quote " just stay we give discount" how much you want off? We didn't wear our best clothing that night but certainly wasn't looking for a freebie or discount, by this time most people would flipped out but i was there for a fun night and didnt want to set bad example 10. Now as a matter of principal I told the Mgr to call the police and make a record of the incident, there are many other details pertinent to this but in any event the Police came and after explained what happened they said that its not the first time that they have been there. 11. My Bill was over $100 but they gave me $15 off since my son did not eat at all So I paid and tipped the waitress but I just wanted to share with everyone what happened and the very poor care of this people that work there with no quality control of what they serve as they made us feel that was or fault and they have no responsibility as stated by them of the frozen crab legs that come in, we would never ever go back there as if there is no way to check the food coming in im we are deeply worried about what can happen next, I would be aware as crab legs with no meat must be a cause of something going wrong never again

Re: “Nancy B’s cookies is a West Homestead gem

This place has been in West Homestead for many more than 3 years. I first bought cookies there (West ?Homestead) about 14 years ago and it wasnt new there at that point. Cant imagine how you thought it. Over there 3 years ago!

Re: “Piacquadio's

Decided on the fish sandwich on the lunch menu. Ask for lettuce, tomato and onion. Fish sandwich cost 6.95, the cost of lettuce a $1.00 extra, cost of one slice of tomato $1.00, 4 pieces of onion $1.00. Talk about inflation!!!! the sandwich ended costing $10.95 ( I did ask for cheese, knowing the extra cost with it) Bartender never mentioned this when ordering. But then was embarrassed to tell me when she gave me the check. Claimed she went to management to see if she could get this taken off, but the only place I saw her go was outside to smoke a cigarette.

Re: “Millvale sandwich scene is run on Duncan

Well, the search continued for a little while, since you failed to give the address of the shop nor provided a link. The address is 543 North Ave., Millvale. http://duncanst.com.

Re: “Frankstown Wood-Fired Pizza perfects the art of the traditional Italian margherita pie

It is a family owned business. John is the cook and Judy his wife helps with the other items. He makes his own mozzarella to put on pizzas. John his son works there after working and their grandkids too. Everything there we have bought has been fabulous. It is the only place we buy pizza from. Remember cash only! But it is with the drive! You should of had sausage added to pizza. Thats the way we get ours.

Re: “Eat Me: The Mantis

Ms Roberts, hate to have to ask the obvious, but since you didn't go into any detail...would I be eating praying mantis in this taco, or is it the standard fare? Or were you simply writing a review to introduce the vegetarian jackfruit option? BTW the jackfruit sounds like an amazing option, I'll be trying that immediately!
Thanks for the clarification.

Re: “A new taco joint, Baby Loves Tacos, opens in Bloomfield

Hey Jesse Adelman, thanks for reading and for the comment. I have actually spoken to the property owner where that stand sets up and she told me she didn't want a story written about the taco stand.
