I eat a lot. A whole lot of f Thai food that is. I have an obsession with Thai dishes. If I was on death row for committing a capital crime, my last meal would be Kra-pow gai. That's basil leaf chicken for non kon-thais (thai people)
A long time ago my ex and I would always giggle whenever we heard people say "Can we order the FAT Thai. I know sometimes the menu reads FAT thai, but really you should pronounce it phut thai or pad thai.
04-29-12 — I paid my wonderful cousin Nicolette or “Nico” and decided to do a mini review away from thai food again. Yolo’s is a newer bar/Mexican restaurant inside the PH closest to the Miracle Mile Shops. Nico was my server and bartender and she did a wonderful job—cousin relation aside.
Being a self proclaimed Mexican establishment, I ordered their ceviche and tortilla soup. Something crisp and light, you know something to make the tummy happy after a “couple” of beers.
The ceviche was like none I have ever tried before. It was refreshingly crisp and lighter side, it even had tangerine wedges to give it a sweet tang. It was truly unique in that it wasn’t the typical pucker-your-lips lime base sauce. It was also based out of shrimp and not crab meat. It was adorned with freshly made tortilla chips.
I love spice and after some chalula, the ceviche tasted better, but i didn’t put too much spicy sauce. I really wanted to appreciate the rather simple crisp fruity flavors of the take on what is traditional Mexican bar food. My stomach wasn’t the strongest this Sunday morning, and coupled with the soup—the duo was the exact non offending pick-me-up I needed. 4/5.
The soup had a really authentic gritty mouth feel. Almost like you can feel the actual spices in your mouth. A really unique experience that is really good. Something I’ve only had in authentic Mexican cuisine. The soup, like the ceviche was also like nothing I’ve ever tried before. Most tortilla soups are overly creamy or just way to watered down. This soup hit the spot. It even had a little bit of spicy kick towards the end.
