So after gleefully reading the "Restaurants Everyone Loves But You" I thought we needed an opposite thread. What is a restaurant that everyone seems to really dislike, but you for some particular reason really like it.
I know Chowhounders may be a little loathe to admit they like places that other people consider places they hate, but here is your space to rant.
I like Lauriol Plaza- not for badly made Mexican food, but for some of the great Cuban/Puerto Rican dishes they have. I think most Chowhounders hate this place...
I also like Sticky Rice which most sushi lovers hate, but I like some of their weird rolls. (I will admit though that the Richmond location is much better) I also like Cafe Asia for simple sushi and some of their other dishes, like their Chinese ravioli.
I also like Citronelle which a lot of people hate. I really love it though. I love the spoofs and the rich flavors.
So what are places that everyone tends to hate-on that you love and why.
