Sometimes knowing what people hate is as much fun as knowing the best. How about posting what places you think are completely talked about too much.
Perhaps I should start...
Kitima Thai in Hillcrest - bland and overpriced! We asked for extra extra hot and got a plate of warm coconut milk. apparently, this place used to be really good but fame pushed them to americanize or tame the flavors for some reason.
La Vache in Hillcrest - terrible service and food was drenched in thick sauces. Steak was two stages overcooked. I really don't understand why this place gets any repeat customers.
