How can a day be so crappy by 9:10?
I ate at Chaat Corner last night. Let's just say they spared all expense on the decor. They don't even have the News and Review review posted! It's very drafty, too. But, the food is quite good and so cheap. As everyone else has said the samosa chaat is not to be missed. That was the best thing. The other dishes we tried were good and not too oily but nothing to write home about. I would like to try more of the stuff on the menu. And you can get tons of food for less than ten bucks.
The Sacbee cannot stop talking about that new Mason's complex. You would think they were getting a kickback from the owner or something. I think they have had 4 articles in the last couple of weeks, two of them major. Yesterday a feature on the family that owns it took up most of the front page of the Scene section, with color photos. This one was at least kind of interesting (not like that blathering one I linked to before), because this family has been prominent on the sac business scene for a few generations. I STILL haven't heard anything about what the food tastes like, at either Mason's or Ma Jongs. The Bee needs to try to vary their coverage a bit more. It's sad that they're salivating over these businesses. It's another desperate attempt to make sac appear hip, which we're not.
