Beef tacos were excellent, as was the lamb kebab flatbread. I had a small bite of a Nantucket slider and that was good too, though not quote at the same level as the other two.

The skirt steak was okay at best - my brother was raving about it and I figured that was the better option as it comes with some vegetables on the side and costs a few bucks less than the other steak options. Ultimately it was much too salty, and the vegetables, while good, didn't add that much to the plate. My other brother gave me a bite off his rib steak and that was definitely the way to go for only $4 more. Though the truth is the burger (which I also tasted since my mother couldn't finish her's) might be the best value of the bunch.

The donuts were great - all but one of us much preferred the custard dip over the chocolate dip, as it was almost too bitter. I had a little nibble off my father's strawberry waffles and they were really good. I didn't bother trying the key lime dessert that someone ordered, as I know I don't like that top of thing anyway. I was shocked to see multiple tables around us ordering the cotton candy as part of their desserts. It must be the novelty, because I can't imagine another reason to spend $14 on freaking cotton candy.

There were also some other items ordered that I didn't taste or get any feedback on, including onion soup, beef vegetable soup, and the chop chop salad. All in all, very good food, though some dishes seemed much more worthwhile than others. One other thing to note is that a lot of the prices on the site are not current, and there are some things added/removed.
Nice review . When the waiter suggested cotton candy I couldn't understand what he was trying to say. I asked if it's a special type and he said no . People order it though

If you're still looking I suggest getting on the Whatsapp group called 5T/FR apartments 2.0 ( assuming you aren't on there already).

Any recommendations for a local (or someone who will come here) photographer who does outdoor child portraits? Preferably someone who takes good photos and doesn't just heavily edit mediocre photos.

Alan from Brachs bought QCumbers a while ago and has been operating out of that location on Central ever since.
