Tasty Garden in Everett on Broadway is one of those places you go to for Americanized Chinese. There are no rare or super authentic menu items here. I went with 3 DCs and we all liked the solid, decent food. The service was great too. Definitely try the Dragon wings. They are sweet , savory, garlicky, and delicious.

Tried Fasika for the first time on Saturday. I liked it. I will return one day but maybe not super soon. Not one of my go-to places by any means but I liked the food though. While eating and watching some TV some strange guy just waltzed in from the bar and flipped the TV to the same golf game that was on the TV in the bar...RUDE. The atmosphere is strange but as I said...the food is fine. The only thing I did not like was the spicy raw beef dish. I am all for medium rare meat but this was just raw.

Fuloon has a soup on their menu called Szechuan Spicy beef soup. Something about it is so BLAND. I ordered my usual Kung Pao chicken and decided to order this soup on the side. BIG MISTAKE. Tasted like a bowl of hot and spicy water. I will stick with their hot and sour or the China hot and sour(which is better than the basic version).

Sei Bar is a very good place to go and have a nice meal but their delivery STINKS. Me and the SO ordered some lunch specials there last week. She ordered shrimp stir fry. The meal comes with miso soup, a spring roll, rice, a house salad, and 3 pieces of california maki. The shrimp were about 20 minutes past overcooked and had a very fishy taste. The maki was in the same plate as the cooked food so it was warm and was submerged in an inch of stir fry sauce. I ordered the chicken teriyaki. It was SOOOOOOOOOO dry and tasteless I just threw it out and did not even bother eating it.

Bread and Co. in Everett Square on Norwood Street is a lil cafe that sells the most delicious pastries, sandwiches, and cakes. I went there with a friend and tried this ham and cheese pastry and an ice coffee. They have hands down the creamiest coffee I have ever drank. I love that place.
