Re: “Best Cakes

Welp! After checking their website, uh, nevermind, White Flower. There's NO WAY I can justify spending $65 on a simple 8" cake. Bakeries in DC and L.A. don't even ask that price! I'll keep going to Michael Angelo's. #sorrynotsorry Not going to pay that in CLE!

Re: “Best Corned Beef/Deli

Simon's in Brecksville has the better corned beef. A friend told me she was going to pick up corned beef sandwiches and asked if I wanted one. I jumped at the chance! I thought she said she was going to Simon's , but she'd said Slyman's! I always take off about half the corned beef to make a sandwich the next day, so the one I ate was fresh with half the corned beef. I had to check the bread to see if had gotten soggy but, no, it was as dry as the corned beef. I had to drench the corned beef in mustard so I could eat it. I was REALLY disappointed. I'm glad I have since moved to North Royalton so it's easier to get to Simon's. But, to be fair, I'll try the Independence Slyman's and give them another chance. I'll dine in, and if the sandwich is as bad as the first one I had, I'll give it back, get a refund, and head to Simon's. One more chance, Slyman's. One more chance!

Re: “Best Cakes

What? No Michael Angelo's on Broadview Rd in Seven Hills? Or is that too far from Cleveland proper? They have the BEST cakes I've ever had (though not quite as good as my Guinness Stout chocolate cake with Guinness stout frosting. Everyone I know agrees on Michael's! Granted, I haven't tried White Flour...I'll give them a try. If they are as good as Michael's I'll be back here to give them props.

Re: “Best Butcher Shop

Had some AWESOME, very tender ribeye meatballs at an Italian restaurant in Providence, RI. I wanted to try and make some myself, but this shop said no when I called and asked, "If I come in and buy some ribeye steaks, can you guys grind 'em up for me?" After asking, the girl came back on the line and said "They can't."
Now I'm wondering if she thought I was going to come in right away. I'll stop by and ask in person next week when I'm in the area. I'll get some steak anyway, and maybe I'll try their ground beef, but I'm not sure why they wouldn't grind a steak, if they grind their own beef? Maybe they don't grind while they're open?

Meh, it's a fancy Taco Bell. Drinks are good though.

Re: “Best Cupcakes

Their cupcakes are nothing more than trumped up Debbie snacks.
