Went to Riingo for lunch

posted about going here a few days ago...just got back.

the place is rather clunky...the space is modern but it doesnt feel right...seems very ramshackle. service was ok but everyone was conferring with the other service help behind us...it was a bit weird.

the food: i had the shortrib appetizer...it was very good. nearly toasted on the exterior and delicious and tender on the interior. for entree, i had the braised pork belly...also very good...nice amount of fat, juicy and tender...once again crisp on the exterior and moist in the interior.

dessert was the donuts...nice choice...fried dough with green tea panna cotta.

i liked the food but the place itself was very meh to me. they need a remake frankly...i doubt ill go again if i have to pay.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
