Punjab Palace is an Indian restaurant with two locations in the Riverside area. My friend dragged me along to grab food with him the other day, and now I’m indebted to him forever. I can’t say for the other location, but I went to the one on University Avenue, and they have a great lunch time special (11:30AM – 3PM) where you can get all you can eat Indian food for $9! I tasted a little bit of everything and it was all great, but what I enjoyed the most was the orange-looking curry with chicken in it. Sorry, I’m not an Indian food expert so I don’t know the names of everything, but I can say that for someone who enjoys good food on a budget, the food here was truly delicious!

Cheap and Tasty Curry!

February 25, 2012

Craving for some curry? Don’t want to spend too much on food?

Well I’ve got an answer: Curry House Coco Ichibanya at Diamond Plaza in Rowland Height’s.

I recommend it because you can actually choose the level of spiciness or amount of rice for you order, and the price will change according to your choice. Besides, the curry there is not pricey since it only costs around $7-8 comparing to Curry House’s curry which costs around $11-12.

So for example, I went last time with my roommate and ordered a Chicken Cutlet Curry which costs $7.49. I really love to eat spicy food, so I increase the spiciness of the curry which I believe added $.50; I usually can not finish the rice in the curry, so I changed my rice amount to small which subtracted ~$.50 to my bill.

I think this is a more customer-oriented store, and the food is really good too. The waiter there is Japanese, and he’s super friendly. Including tips, you can have a great customized curry meal with great customer service with only $10 bucks!!

Alright, so I realize this restaurant may be a bit far (Menifee, CA), but have your taste buds ever experienced the drool-worthy deliciousness of Texas Roadhouse?! Over my 3-day long weekend, I was able to visit home, and to my surprise my mother took me and my brother out on a “Mother and Sons” date. I definitely was not complaining. As college students, most of us know that when the fridge is empty, that’s when it is time to go home home.

Our Destination? Texas Roadhouse! Texas Roadhouse is a pretty big institution, and is located in Menifee, California. For those of you living closer to the Moreno Valley area, it’s just straight down the 215 South highway. To be honest, I was expecting the bill  to be way more expensive than I could afford on my own budget; however, I was surprised when the total for a complete meal for 3 was UNDER $46. (And that’s including the tip!) To be exact: 2 Ice Teas, 1 water, 1 BBQ Brisket Sandwich with Loaded Bacon and Cheese Fries, 1 enormous platter of a Juicy 12 oz. Steak and a 1/2 Rack of Baby Back Ribs with Cheesy Mashed Potatoes, and who can forget the free BOTTOMLESS Biscuits?! Yeah, you heard right, bottomless biscuits served on your command. I swear, I practically ruined my appetite before dinner was even served with just the biscuits alone (>.<). With just 2 entree orders and the biscuits, my mother, brother and myself were able to fill our stomachs to complete satisfaction by the end of the night.

If you have the time, I would definitely recommend you try this restaurant. It’s not everyday you can find a decent BBQ restaurant in Southern California…aside from Phil’s BBQ I mean. From what I saw, it would be a great place for a date too! The environment and atmosphere was very welcoming, and the service there was top notch. So, from one hungry student to another, all I can say is, “Enjoy!”.

Elephant Bar Happy Hour

February 12, 2012

The creation of “happy hour” is amongst God’s greatest gifts to men…or to college students at least. Ironically, my personal abuse of happy hours is starting to hurt my wallet instead of comforting it, but that’s because I’m on a quest to find the best happy hours in the Inland Empire to share with you folks.

This past week’s search led me to the Elephant Bar by Galleria at Tyler. My boyfriend and I were in the mood for some drinks and a quick snack before our movie date, and a friend recommended for us to come here. I had eaten at Elephant Bar during regular hours before, but the food was pretty pricey and I never had a reason to go back. Of course, this was before I discovered their happy hour, which is AMAZING! Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. From top left to right, here’s what we ordered: green tea ginger spritzer (non-alcoholic), buffalo chicken strips, sweet potato fries, and Blue Moon. All this came out to less than $15! (not including tip) And we still had chicken strips left over for the next day.

Here’s a picture of the Happy Hour food menu. (Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of the side with the drink deals.)

My favorite happy hours at Buffalo Wild Wings and Kabuki Japanese Restaurant definitely have some competition now. The portions here are huge, and the prices just make this deal that much better.

$5 FebruANY at Subway!

February 2, 2012

So Subway usually has a monthly $5 footlong; however, this month ANY regular foot long is only $5 plus tax! For you Subway newbs out there, that’s basically all their subs except for two! So hurry in to Subway, as this deal will only last til the 29th of February.

When I went to take advantage of this deal today, I first ordered the steak and cheese, but the worker warned me that there really isn’t much meat on that one so I got the chicken and bacon ranch melt on flat bread (my favorite bread there) instead. I topped it with provolone cheese and asked for marinara sauce (free!) to be spread on top before toasting it. I added a couple of vegetables and topped it off with some extra parmesan cheese. For five dollars, I must say it was a damn good value. If you can’t finish a footlong by yourself, just show your friends some love by sharing a footlong together!

My $5 footlong sub. The picture definitely doesn't do the sub justice.
