Re: “In a Crowded Landscape, Thai Kitchen in Lakewood Dishes Up Authenticity

What may start as a neat change of pace for some diners will quickly become a go-to location.

Re: “Steven's Chicken is Grilling Up Some of the Best Chicken Around (and Dishing Up Central American Staples)

I totally agree with the above post. I do not think they are related since I have met the owners of La Brasa and am a witness of them not having an family in the United States. Instead they were a humble family that came strictly to the Ohio to continue their family chicken business that they own in other states. Due to this they have they have their secret family chicken recipe.

I strongly believe that Luis, the owner of the Steven's Chicken, tried to use the La Brasa's old existence as advertisement for his own restaurant which is unjustifiable. This is not right!! And the media should verify facts before posting lies. One thing I agree on is that Steven's Chicken will never be like La Brasa. La Brasa will for ever be in Cleveland's Heart, Soul, and Memory, representing the Central American Community.

Re: “Steven's Chicken is Grilling Up Some of the Best Chicken Around (and Dishing Up Central American Staples)

I do not believe he is related to the owners of the old Authentic La Brasa Restaurant. Especially since I am very close to them and I happen to know the truth. Also I know the true recipe to the chicken which is not a consistency of soy sauce and sugar. La Brasa had their own unique recipe unshared and a secret to the world. But Steven's Chicken has also made up their own recipe for the chicken but I know it tastes way different than the original. NEVER THE SAME. This new little restaurant located in a terrible neighborhood that has tried to imitate La Brasa's Authentic food but will never be the same as La Brasa's which was also a unique humble and small family restaurant.

Re: “TASTES LIKE CHICKEN

Growing up in Canton, I remember as a child it being a BIG DEAL when we had company for my dad to drive to Barberton and pick up chicken and hot sauce from Belgrade Gardens. Food just tasted better back then! The chicken was chickeny-er and the hot sauce, which now I know is not exactly sauce, was delicious. I occasionally make fried chicken the Southern way soaking it in peppered buttermilk, rolling in seasoned flour, dunking it in an egg wash then rolling it again in Panko bread crumbs to fry in very hot peanut oil. It's good and I always buy organic, free-range whole chicken cut into pieces which drives my mom crazy because it is so expensive. Such is our world where food is mass produced and all the flavor is gone. But I remember the 50's & 60's being the Baby Boomer that I am. Nostalgic article and now I am going to make the hot sauce next time and fry my chicken in lard to see if I can stir up a memory. ;<)

Re: “What Happens to Cleveland's Neighborhoods When Our Favorite Restaurants Expand and Duplicate?

Don't forget ABC THE TAVERN, which opened its east location (uptown) before any of the mentioned other great places arrived.

Re: “Welcome to Cleveland. Now Eat and Drink Like a Local for a Few Days

Delegates, I'm sure by some lapse of memory, they left off the granddaddy of neighborhood joints, ABC the TAVERN on West 25. You will have a great time and make great new friends. PS across the street from the casino downtown is Cleveland's hidden "hideaway" gem, The Ontario. Pint and a shot; $3.25.

Re: “Plum Cafe and Kitchen is Doing Things More Than a Little Differently

Chickenrones? In my neighbrhood those are known as grivenes. I made duck grivenes once, which my late and witty mom dubbed "quacklings."

Re: “Plum Cafe and Kitchen is Doing Things More Than a Little Differently

I had lunch there a couple months ago. The vegan Bahn mi was the worst I've ever had. Flavorless. The service was nonexistent. I had to walk up to the expediter's window and ask the guy in the kitchen if anyone was going to run our food which had been sitting in the window for 7 minutes. I timed it out of curiosity. No one-not the server, not the owners who were puttering around-not one person was paying attention. It's a beautiful space, but my experience was pretty terrible.

Also, what is the aforementioned Astoria Foods? I did a Google search and didn't find anything.

Re: “Mabel's Reimagines 'Cue for the North Coast -- and Beyond

It costs far too much for a BBQ joint. I've been to many legit BBQ places all over the country, including some that Symon often recommends. $19-22 for one meat choice with 1 side. $6 for some broccoli. The same cracklin at BSpot are $2 that cost $7 here. Also don't need servers at a real BBQ place as Symon knows. It not only costs the customers more because of tip, but causes more expensive prices as well. None of the meats were the best I have had. The food is good, but not worth it to me. I will stick with BSpot.

Best of luck to you both. My son made candy for his Grandfather at Bakers Candies. It becomes more than a job.
