Go Thai Restaurant502 East Columbia, New Westminster
Didn't expect the portions to be that small.
Submitted Monday, July 25, 2011 - 1:52pm [Dine in]

Went there alone for dinner one night. Been meaning to try this place for a while now because of the decent reviews I've been hearing about this place. Not much ambiance to speak of, the decor was a little dated and because it's an open kitchen, the air smelled like food and grease as soon as you walk in. The washroom was a little dingy too and looked as if it was hazily put together.

Anyway, I decided to try their pad thai, which was $10, fairly reasonably priced for most pad thai's I've eaten. I was expected a good decent portion, but when my plate came, it was about half the size of what I've expected, more like an "afternoon-tea" sized meal at a Hong Kong style cafe. Half the plate was noodles and the other half was raw bean sprouts which they have probably washed but have not drained properly because there was a ring of water all around my plate. The taste was alright, nothing extraordinary. There were like 5 small shrimps of my plate, which definitely tasted like frozen shrimps, and fried tofu that was quite greasy.

All in all, was not impressed with this place and won't be coming back.

Good place for homemade Chinese dessert.
Submitted Monday, July 25, 2011 - 1:41pm [Dine in]

My friends and I decided to have dessert after dinner and we decided to come to this place. I've been here several times before and have been quite pleased each time. We were greeted by the male owner, and he sat us in on one side where there's a long table for 4. Because there were 6 of us, we asked if we could pull another small table over to accommodate all 6 of us. He didn't want to do that, and instead, he told us to just put 2 chairs at each end of the table. He was a little pushy when he came to us ordering as well, and didn't look too pleased when we told him we wanted to wait for the last two people in our party to arrive before ordering.

They didn't have a large selection of dessert on their menu, but they had the most popular ones, which we were fine with. Most of them were only $4, which was cheaper than a lot of Chinese dessert places. We ordered the mango sago, hot black sasame soup, hot cashew soup and 3 of us (including myself) ordered the mango pomelo sago. My friend who had the black sesame soup said that it tasted like it was made from a powdered, but it said on the outside window that it was made from scratch. Don't know which was true, but for $4 it wasn't too bad. The portion sizes were pretty good for what we paid. Both the mango sago and my mango pomelo sago had little "frog's eggs" (not real of course, it looks a little like sago but with a black dot in the centre, and hence the name), which we thought was quite neat because the texture was a little crunchy, and it kind of "popped" when we bit into it. The taste was good, but there was too much sago for our taste and the pomelo in my dessert was frozen, which we found a little strange.

Despite of the not-so-perfect service and the frozen pomelo, we will be back whenever we feel like having Chinese style dessert.

Yummy sandwich!
Submitted Monday, July 25, 2011 - 1:17pm [Dine in]

First time going to this location. It was for a meeting for one of the organizations that I volunteer for. It was nice to have free parking right beside the restaurant, but there were very limited spots availableThe hostess was very accommodating in terms of our seating arrangement. Service was friendly, but our server was hard to find at times.

Most people at at our table ordered the taco soup, which they all said was delicious. I went for the grilled chicken with baked brie ciabatta. I believed they used chicken thigh for this sandwich, which I personally preferred over chicken breast because it was more tender. The portion size was just right. It was delicious with the perfectly cooked chicken, warm baked brie with some dried cranberries and apple slices, but it was a little messy to eat though with the cheese oozing out from the sides.

A must try if you like baked brie and chicken in your sandwich.

Fuji Sushi526B Clarke Rd, Coquitlam
A solid, authentic Japanese restaurant.
Submitted Tuesday, July 19, 2011 - 3:55pm [Dine in]

Decided to go there for lunch after reading all the good reviews about this place. Service was alright, it took a little while for them to notice me standing by the door before they showed me to my seat.

I ordered the lunch sushi combo with tuna, salmon, crab, egg, eel, ebi, and 3 pieces of california roll. The portion was alright, the fish vs. rice ratio was good, just with right amount of rice on each of the nigiri. The tuna, ebi, california rolls and salmon were ok, nothing out of the ordinary. For the crab, I found that the nori was a little too soft, I like it with a slight crispiness to show its freshness, but the real crab meat was fresh, it wasn't fishy at all. A little disappointed at the egg, because a few of the layers were burnt and you really could taste it, and I usually like the egg to be slightly sweeter. The best piece was definitely the eel. It tasted like it just came off the grill, with that freshly grilled taste.

Service-wise, I was not too impressed. Although they were quick to clear the dirty dishes off your table, it felt like they just want you in and out. They presented me with the bill as soon as they took my plate off the table. Maybe that's how they handle their lunch crowd? But I went in for a late lunch, and the place was only half full.

Might go back and try their other items, but the eel was definitely note-worthy.

Sweet Revenge Patisserie4160 Main Street, Vancouver
Interesting decor, but great dessert!!
Submitted Tuesday, July 19, 2011 - 3:30pm [Dine in]

My friend and I decided to come here one weekend after an early dinner. We were quite surprised to find a parking spot right outside, because we've been here before, but had to turn away because we couldn't find a spot to park.

The interior decor of this place is quite unique, might not be to everyone's taste though. Once you're in there, you would notice all the vintage posters of Chinese advertisements for cigarettes and other things on the wall, as well as their wallpaper and the wallpapered ceiling. It was like travelling back in time to an old Chinese style cafe. The seating in there was quite cramp; you would find table and chairs (each table is different with their own set of matching chairs), bench seating just by the door, and a couch with a coffee table. Not the most comfy seating, but the dessert made up for it for sure.

My friend and I decided to order the chocolate sampler. It includes 4 different desserts: white chocolate cheesecake, chocolate gateau, Sweet Revenge and the old-fashioned chocolate cake, plus your choice of sauce (we got the strawberry sauce) and 2 small bowls of ice-cream (the one we got was vanilla ice cream with strawberry sauce swirl).

We started off with the Sweet Revenge. It definitely was not as sweet as it looked (in a very good way). We especially enjoyed the bitter dark chocolate ganache coating on the outside. The chocolate gateau was surprisingly good as well. It was a flourless chocolate cake with hazelnut centre and raspberry jam, kind of a different version of a black forest cake. It was very light and airy, and again, not too sweet. Next we went on to the white chocolate cheesecake. It was very smooth and creamy, and went perfectly with the strawberry sauce. It had some vanilla bean and another spice that we couldn't quite figure out what it was, but it was good. While my friend really enjoyed the last cake, the old-fashioned chocolate cake, I found it a little too heavy and a little too sweet for my taste, but if you're a fan of the old-fashioned chocolate cake, then definitely go for it!

All in all, delicious dessert, will definitely come back for more!

Yummy waffles!!
Submitted Monday, July 18, 2011 - 1:39pm [Dine in]

My brother and I stumbled upon this dessert place after dinner one night, and we were drawn in by the yummy waffle display in front of their window. Not much ambiance to speak of, just an ordinary coffee house (though it felt more like it has a "bubble tea place" type decor). The service was mediocre, the guy behind the counter didn't greet us or anything, just kind of stared at us until we were ready to order.

We decided to try to matcha waffle, with matcha ice cream, match whipped cream and caramel drizzle on top. It was surprisingly delicious!! Never underestimate the mouth-watering power of a warm, freshly made waffle with ice cream. Oh my gosh, it was absolutely to die for!! It was, warm, light and fluffy, paired with the cold ice-cream and googy caramel sauce....it was a total orgasmic experience in your mouth!

Perfect place when you want to treat yourself with a little something nice!

Hart House6664 Deer Lake Ave, Burnaby
A little disappointed...
Submitted Monday, July 18, 2011 - 1:19pm [Dine in]

My friend bought the Groupon for Hart House, so we decided to go for dinner there on Wednesday. The bookings were surprisingly full for a weekday, we were only able to get in at 5:30, otherwise we had to wait until 8:30!

The restaurant is situated inside Deer Lake Park. It's a cute little cottage style building with a gorgeous view of Deer Lake from the back. It was elegent without being too "stuffy". They also had outside seating; We initially wanted to sit outside, but when ants and tiny flies started to invade our table, we decided that we should get a table inside.

The menu was not very big, limited choices when it comes to starters, so we just ordered 2 entrees for our dinner. My friend ordered the pork chop and I ordered their duck breast entree. The presentations was really good. But while the food looked great on the plate, the taste was a different story. My friend said his pork chop was definitely overcooked; the flavour was alright, but it was tough from being overcooked. My duck breast entree, although it looked a little more done than I liked, the meat was surprisingly tender. The only complaint I had with my dish was that it tasted very greasy. The confit hash was flavourful but was extremely greasy, and I thought that they could have seared the skin on the breast a little longer to render off some of the fat. Because the fat on the skin was still quite thick, it made it quite hard to chew. It was just too greasy and it left a greasy after-taste in my mouth.

Definitely a little disappointed in the food from such a beautiful restaurant.

Good food, fantastic dessert!
Submitted Monday, July 18, 2011 - 1:01pm [Dine in]

Went to Chambar with my brother the other night. The service was prompt and friendly, I was led to a seat right away. Loved the ambiance in the restaurant, it was quite hip and modern; the lighting inside was dim but not too dark.

We ordered the spiced fois gras terrine to start, then the coquette moules frites, and after much consideration, ended our great meal with the Symphonie Tropicale. Out starter took no time to arrive. It was quite unique, because we've never had cold fois gras before. It was definitely a very unique experience for our palate, a GOOD unique experience! But it would be great if there was more of the brioche french toast to go with the fois gras, because on its own, it was quite salty, but the everything balanced perfectly when eaten with the brioche french toast.

Next came the moules frites. The fries were served with a dijon mayo, which we both enjoyed quite a bit. There were plently of mussels in the pot with plenty of bacon. The broth was quite flavourful and delicious and the mussels were cooked just right. We were just too full to order a side of bread to scoop up the reminder of the broth.

We were a little hesitant when it came to dessert, but after much deliberation, we decided to go with the Symphanie Tropicale, which was a coconut macaroon with passionfruit curd and pina colada sorbet. It was a pretty tiny dessert for $11 (we each had about 2 small bites), but it was just so perfect that we couldn't complain. The pina colada sorbet was so refreshing that it make us felt like we were on the beach! We really just wish there was more of it.

Great experience, would definitely go back to try other items on their menu. Or might just go there for drinks and dessert!

Good place for a quick lunch.
Submitted Thursday, June 30, 2011 - 1:22pm [Dine in]

My boss and I decided to go there for lunch today. This is another Korean-run Japanese restaurant. The people there were quite friendly, and the service was prompt and courteous. The place itself was quite dark on the inside, the front entrance was small, so not very noticible. Nothing too special about the decor, except for the black light-up menu on the back wallwhich has the chef's specials written on it. I thought it was just a little tacky.

They have quite an extensive menu. The food was average-priced, but definitely not on the cheap side. My boss ordered chicken teriyaki and dynamite roll while I ordered the chirashi don. The chicken teriyaki was served on a sizzling hot plate, which I thought was quite neat. The dynamite roll was big with lots of california roll filling, but could hardly taste the tempura shrimp on the inside. What I liked about it was the layer of rice on the outside was quite thin.

My chirashi don had a good variety of fish - smoked salmon, salmon, tuna, toro, surf clam, squid, chopped scallop and egg. The fish was ok, not the best cut, because I had some trouble biting into my salmon because it had a tough tendon (?) in the middle, and some of the fish was a little too watery from defrosting. The toro was good though, but the chopped scallop and the egg were so cold from being in the fridge that it was pretty tasteless.

One thing worth noting was that their wasabi was excellent!! I'm not sure if it was freshly grind, it sure tasted like it, it was really fresh and strong, just the way I like it.

Overall, not a bad lunch. They also have AYCE for those who love to eat lots!

Pho 99 Vietnamese Noodle House228 Schoolhouse Street, #14, Coquitlam
Super quick lunch!
Submitted Thursday, June 23, 2011 - 8:43pm [Dine in]

Went there for lunch one afternoon. It was a late lunch so it wasn't very busy. I've been to other Pho 99 before and they don't entirely impress me, but I figure I would give this new location a try. The decor on the inside is kind of "funky", don't really know whether I like it or not, but at least it was bright and clean.

I ordered a chicken ball pho, and it came in under 5 minutes. I was quite impressed at the speed, perfect place for a quick lunch. Faster than food court! Nothing special about the pho, soup was flavourful, the noodles was good. Overall, it was a solid pho, although the waitress didn't bring me my bean sprouts until I asked for it.

Would come back for lunch, especially when I just need to grab a quick bite to eat.

George's Taverna3760 Moncton Street, #130, Richmond
Cramped seating. Under-seasoned lamb.
Submitted Tuesday, June 21, 2011 - 11:09am [Dine in]

My friends and I decided to have dinner on Saturday in Steveston. After being giving up on 2 other restaurant because of their long wait time for dinner, we decided to go to George's. The restaurant was not very big and they didn't really have big tables, so our company of 5 had to be seated at a table for 4 with a chair at the end of the table. There were quite a few like that in the restaurant, it's not really a sit-in restaurant.

The prices were quite seasonable...maybe even on the cheap side. $16 for a lambchops dinner entree, definitely worth trying. We ordered a few appies to share, George's fries, calamari and fried mushrooms. They were good, not outstanding, but at least the calamari was done right.

Our entrees came soon after, a little too soon. We weren't finished with our appies yet, so the issue with the small table became quite apparent at that point. When our appies arrived earlier, we ran out of room to put all our plates and platters. Now it was almost like a juggling act, trying to stack the plates to make room for our entrees. Not a pretty sight. Unfortunately our server was too busy to notice to come collect our plates.

My lambchops came, and when I ordered they asked how I wanted my lamb done, and I told them medium rare, so I was expecting it to be somewhat medium rare...since they asked, right? Well, needless to say, it was overcooked, not even medium, more like well-done. And they were definitely under-seasoned. I'm not a big fan of salt, but you definitely need a bit to bring out the flavour.

Probably not going to go back...maybe I might try their donair for take-out sometime.

I'll skip the bread next time.
Submitted Tuesday, June 21, 2011 - 10:49am [Dine in]

Been wanting to try this place for a while, so we decided to go there one weekend. Prompt service, the hostess showed us our table right away (mainly because there was only 1 other table occupied in the entire restaurant). The decor of the restaurant was quite unique, simple and not pretentious. kind of made us feel like we were at a cafe in France.

We decided to start with the crabcakes, while my husband ordered their sirloin with fries, I ordered their bouillabaisse. After we ordered, our server brought us a basket of bread with butter, which he took from the table next to us, which had several baskets sitting on there with bread and butter. And just as i suspect, the bread had probably been sitting there for a while, because the bread was quite dried out from sitting out for a while. Really not what I would expect, especially when the restaurant is not very busy, shouldn't have to pre-cut the bread at the beginning of the evening and have them sit out to dry.

Anyway, the crabcakes came and they were delicious. Lightly breaded, which I definitely prefer over the other ones you usually find in restaurants. Lots of crab, nicely seasoned, and the roasted pepper aioli went perfectly with the crabcakes. Great dish!

Our entrees came shortly afterwards. Although the fries on my husband's entree was nothing special, the steak was perfectly cooked to medium rare. My bouillabaise was very delicious as well. The seafood was perfectly cooked, the broth itself was DELICIOUS!!! Definitely lipsmackingly good! However, the crostinis served with my entree were not very good....tasted like they brushed it with oil that was rancid. It just had a rancid taste to them. Again...a bread issue. Would have been a perfect entree if it wasn't for the bread.

Would definitely go back, but would skip the bread altogether.

Yummy Strawberry Lemonade!!
Submitted Tuesday, June 21, 2011 - 10:12am [Dine in]

Went there on Friday night with my friend. It was quite full already by the time we got there, but we were seated right away. Prompt service. The decor was alright, however the tables were kind of cramp. Our table was right by the window, and the way the tables were positioned in the room, it was a little difficult even for our server to get to our table when the table next to us was occupied.

We both ordered the strawberry lemonade, which was YUMMY!! Definitely a must in the summer!! Cold and refreshing! I ordered the paella while my friend ordered the ratatouille. The presentations were quite nice and the portions were a tad big for us, but definitely very good value. They both turned out to be spicy dishes. The paella was a little too spicy for my taste, I found that the spiciness overpowered the rest of the flavour of the dish, which was too bad. The mussles and prawns were slightly overcooked, but still quite tasty.

Would go back to try their Irish stew and lamb tagine, and of course for their strawberry lemonade!!

Awesome pork belly sliders!
Submitted Wednesday, June 1, 2011 - 9:34pm [Dine in]

Went there with my brother to use up his Groupon. We were seated right away. Ambiance was pretty good, modern Chinese decor, with terracotta soldiers on the wall.

We tried a number of items on the menu - duck fried rice, pork belly sliders, tuna spring rolls, golden squid, duck wrap and we ended our meal with their tapioca pie dessert. Everything was really well seasoned and delicous. We especially loved the pork belly sliders. Usually I would stay away from something so fatty, but because it was only 3 sliders, the portion size was perfect. The pork belly slices were so juicy and melt-in-your-mouth tender. The chinese style buns were soft and tasty. We were tempted to get another order of those! The tuna spring roll was another dish we quite enjoyed. Perfectly crispy spring rolls with seared to rare tuna, red pepper and mango, served with a sweet plum dipping sauce. The sizes of all the dishes leave you wanting more...

The only disappointment was the dessert. The baked tapioca pie was nothing extraordinary, way too heavy for my liking and the green tea ice cream wasn't very good.

Would go there again to try other dishes.

American Grille Restaurant7571 Westminister Hwy, Richmond
Delicious Food, Impeccable Service!
Submitted Thursday, May 12, 2011 - 1:28pm [Dine in]

This was my second visit to American Grille. I went there with my brother last year and we were both quite happy about the food and the service we received (but for some reason, I just forgot to write a review).

Anyway, I went back with my mom for dinner last night. Our server was very attentive without being intrusive. She brought our bread to us (fresh from the oven) soon after we placed our order. She made sure our water glasses were filled throughout our dinner (very hard to find such service these days).

My mom ordered her usual rack of lamb and I had a blackened halibut with angel hair pasta. Didn't take very long for our entrees to arrive. It was a full rack of lamb for $27, and it was cooked to perfection and was very flavourful!! A true medium-rare rack of lamb! The potato gnocchi was very good and the green beans were cooked just right. My halibut was also cooked to perfection, and I have to say the angel hair pasta was the best I've had for a long time. The last 2 times I ordered it elsewhere, it both turned out to be overcooked and just laid in a big clump on my plate. The pasta last night was al dente, just the way it should be.

Our food was perfect, the prices were extremely reasonable for the quality and the quanity of food (the portions were surprisingly huge!), our night was great (and they reimbursed us for the parking), what more could I ask for?

Lakeside Grill at Mayfair Lakes5460 No. 7 Road, Richmond
Terrible Food, Slow Service
Submitted Monday, May 9, 2011 - 12:33pm [Dine in]

Came here for Mother's Day dinner last night. When I first arrived, I had to wait at the door for a while before someone finally came over. It was definitely not the type of service I would expect.

Our server came over soon after my party arrived to take our order when we barely had time decide, so we asked her to come back in a few minutes. Those few minutes turned into almost 15 minutes before our server came around again, and she excused herself by saying that she thought we were still waiting for another person. There were 5 menus on the table, 5 people sitting at the table, and she has already try to take our order once, can it be more obvious that we were a party of 5?

Anyway, we ordered the calamari to start and chicken tenders for the kids. We ordered the rack of lamb, a steak sandwich and a paella for myself. The food took a really long time, and when our starter finally arrived, we were eyeing the plate of food in front of us suspiciously because we have never seen calamari in clumps. We decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and I took one of the clumps and took a bite and almost couldn't spit it back out fast enough. Raw batter!!! It was totally disguisting!! We had to sent the whole thing back and decided to just wait our entrees.

And waiting was exactly what we did for what felt like an eternity. When the food finally arrived, it was definitely NOT worth the wait! My mom's rack of lamb was well-done when she ordered medium rare. My mussels in my paella were uncooked, fishy and disguisting. The veggies tasted like they were only tossed in there at the last minute and were tasteless. The carrots were cut the size of my fingers and were still very crunchy. My brother's steak sandwich came at least a full 7 minutes after the rest of our entrees, and when he cut into it, he found that his medium rare was cooked to well-done again. He had his steak sandwich redone, and the second attempt was slightly better but not by much. The most edible thing that night was defintely the onion rings that came with my brother's steak sandwich.

Overall service was slow and unattentive. We often would have to almost wave our hands in the air to get our server's attention despite the fact that there were only a few tables. Our water glasses were only refilled once in the entire night. However, she was at least attentive enough to noticed our dissatisfaction about our food and offered a discount on our bill, so her effort is worth noting.

It's been a while since I've had to send so much food back in a single meal. Definitely will not be back.

Extraodinary.....extraodinarily salty, that is.
Submitted Monday, May 2, 2011 - 1:11pm [Dine in]

Went there for dinner with my friend. The host was a little confused when I went in and told them that my friend has made a reservation for 2 people. She told me that they don't take reservation, which I didn't really understand since it wasn't a weekend or anything. Anyway, it was not a very busy weeknight with plenty of empty tables, but I still had to sit there and waited a while before I was finally seated. She brought me to a table over on the lounge side, and it was a table with 2 large 1-seated couches. These couches must have been there for a while, because the top of the armrests were worn to the foam and the ripped part kept snagging on sweater, so I had to ask the server to swap my couch with one from the adjacent table.

My friend and I decided to order appies to share, so we got the chilli chicken, dynamite roll and a shrimp pesto pizza. The chilli chicken and the dynamite roll were alright, nothing out of the ordinary, although I would prefer the sauce on the chilli chicken to be a little less "goopy". The shrimp pizza was extraordinary...extraodinarily salty, that is. I've already asked them to go easy on the feta cheese, knowing that it would add quite a bit of saltiness to the dish, but it was too a little too much for my threshold. So my friend decided to get the calamari instead, which was also a little bit of a disappointment. The tzatziki was tasteless and the tiny pieces of calamari was a little undercooked.

Not my place of choice for dinner considering there are so many other places to choose from in Burnaby.

Ordinary food with extraordinary service.
Submitted Monday, May 2, 2011 - 12:39pm [Dine in]

Decided to go there for dinner with my family on the weekend. Service was quite attentive, we were seated right away and our menus and tea were brought out shortly thereafter.

We went through the menu and ordered a variety of items, including some of their yakitori, the cheese-stuffed fish cake, bacon wrapped scallop, takoyaki, mango roll with real crab, and a seared duck roll.

Our food arrvied relatively quickly. The yakitoris were a little bland, and our chicken pieces were cut to tiny little pieces, a little too small, in my opinion. The cheese-stuffed fish cake, the scallop and the takoyaki were alright, nothing out of the ordinary. The seared duck roll was very bland, the duck was not seasoned and quite tastely, it was too fatty and could definitely use a little more time under the torch.

The best dish of the night was the mango roll. The tangy mango sauce was top was good, and we wished that we had room to order another one.

Service was great, the server (and very possibly the owner) was very friendly and attentive to my kids' needs. To their delight, we were offered free ice-cream at the end of our meal, which is always a plus.

Will go back their for their mango roll and try new items on their menu.

Went there for lunch after class one day. The ambience was pretty nice. Love the big elegent doors that connect the restaurant to the hotel. Service was alright, nothing short of what you should expect from any other restaurant.

I ordered their ahi tuna tataki salad. It sounded quite unique, so I thought I would give it a try. The lettuce was ok, not great, there were a few wilted pieces in there. They also put 3 huge daps of wasabi on there, which really wasn't necessary, because no one could possibly finish that much wasabi with 5 small pieces of ahi tuna. There wasn't a whole lot of dressing, so most of the salad was just plain lettuce.

The food didn't really impress me much, but then again, I've only tried their salad. Maybe I might change my opinion about this restaurant next time I go back there for a proper dinner entree.

Came here with my kids and my friend. Service was friendly, prompt and attentive.

My kids ordered the chicken fingers kids meals, which came rather quickly. The chicken fingers looked quite appetitizing, nice and crispy, yet not too dry on the inside. The kids loved the curly fries, which were also cooked very nicely.

We ordered the crispy shrimps to start. My friend ordered a caesar salad with grilled chicken and I ordered a pesto chicken spaghettini. After waiting for about 25 minutes for our appy, our server came over to apologize for the lengthy wait and told us that it'll be another 3-5 minutes. Shortly thereafter, the manager came over to our table to apologize, and explained that our wait was due to the server's mistake of bringing our appy to another table. She said that she would take care of the appy on our bill and also offered to buy us dessert as well. We didn't think the wait was too long, but was quite pleasantly surprised by the level of service at this Milestone.

In terms of the food, the shrimp appy was alright. Nice and crispy. The salad was nothing out of the ordinary. My pasta was a little overcooked, I would much prefer my pasta to be al dente. But overall, it was a good experience, definitely much better than expected. Will be coming back with my friends.
