"This was my first time at Buddakan. We were in town for the NRF conference and wanted a restaurant with delicious food and ambiance. This place was perfect we had the best table we could of asked for and the food and drinks are to die for. The service is amazing and the restaurant is beautiful."Vedi di più
"We had dinner reservations but wanted to sit at the bar for drinks before dinner. We ended up staying at the bar and ordering food there because the bartender, Olivia, was really fantastic! She gave us some amazing food recommendations and her drinks were absolutely en pointe. I planned on having one, maybe two cocktails. I ended up trying four. I was absolutely impressed with how much she knows about mixology. The El Diablo was a favorite cocktail with just the right amount of ginger simple to give it a really balanced sweet/spicy flavor. Her margaritas were absolutely sublime. I've had some stellar margaritas at Black Ant, Cosme, Añejo... Olivia's drink blew those amazing places out of the water! A true hidden gem!
We tried the Queso Fundido and the Quesadilla Rustica. She suggested adding chicken (for a small fee, of course) but we went with how it's presented on the menu. We were NOT disappointed!! And it made sense to add chicken because that would have elevated the apps a bit. Next time!
Next we tried the pork belly tacos. Absolutely fantastic! The pork rind on top of the pork belly tacos is a great touch. One suggestion: While I get it that the little pork rind is a visual aesthetic to finish the dish, it did add a nice crunch to a wet taco. Perhaps rather than one whole pork rind, sprinkle roughly crushed pork rind over the entire taco and maybe sprinkle a bit of minced cilantro for some color. The crumbled pork rind would add that little bit of crunch to the whole taco rather than one bite. Otherwise, just great! (Also don't hide the lime wedges under the taco log thing)
We look forward to our next visit, and very much hope to enjoy more of Olivia's cocktails. Even if the food was bad, which it absolutely was not, we would come back just for her drinks and her fantastic personality! A++++"Vedi di più
"The food was great! Small portions though for the price. Margarita was good. The service could have been faster/more attentive, but we did dine on New Year’s Eve before going to a club in the neighborhood , so they may have been busier than usual."Vedi di più
