This place has very nice layered cuts. It's great of asian hair since it's right in the middle of Chinatown. But you may want to check out the other hair places in this alley cause there are like 10. Each has it's own style and price. I like the style and price here. The guy who did my hair was very friendly and kept chatting to me the whole way. Price was very reasonable and I had no regrets.
Yeah, I'm not so sure I like the whole express thing. I rather they spend more time on me. The prices for haircuts are pretty cheap, plus they pass out coupons sometimes outside so I got my cut for under 10. But I don't really like their styles, so I never went again. They have this way of putting too many products in your hair that you didn't want. Everything else here is expensive.
Their skills are pretty much perfect. Sometimes I'm unsatisfied only because I'm a fickle person because once all the nails are done, I realized I liked looking at them, but not necessarily on me. But all is well, their price is not TOO expensive and they are well mannered. It's better if you speak chinese though, they don't understand english too well, but they're nice people. They try.
Some of the dogs here look very happy indeed,but I often find a pug and a few more breeds sitting on their on by the window looking really bored. I mean, it's really cute cause they sit like humans when they're bored, but I still felt really bad for him. But luckily, my dog interacted with the others. There is seriously a HUGE playroom. Since when did dogs get such nice treatment? Webcams included if you don't trust the staff. Price is reasonable.
This is a recently opened place, and it's very cute. It's not like, oh it's so flowery kind of cute, but more like, wow this is a unique symmetrical shop. You really ahve to check it out for yourself, it's the darnest thing I've seen. It's a noodle house and it serve all kinds of noodles in these gigantic bowls. Maybe that's why it's cute, seeing these little people with giant bowls. Anyway, it's on Bayard Street, between Bowery and Elizbeth.
This place does have less people, and I'm not sure why, but ut does make me more wary of going in. Never buy their "ready-to-eat" chicken. Never trust any of those is a meat market. Nothing is ready to eat. The service here is commendable. The guy who chops up stuff in the back has a sense of humor and is quite jolly most of the time. The cashiers are a bit unresponsive. But that's life.
Woah. Can you say pink? Well, I understand that meat markets are supposed to make their place look pink and have that pink glow to make it look less gruesome and all, but who knew a store could over do it. This one obviously does. Usually, when I step in to a meat market, it's not that noticable, but this one is like .. hey, can you turn on some real lights here so I can look at my chicken properly?
This place is really popular in Little Italy as well as Chinatown itself. It's so popular that you have to wait for something as small as a pastry or a cake or ice cream or coffee. But, if it's the atmosphere that you're into checking out, this is definitely one of the spots you should go to. It's very nice and has a huge billboard outside that makes it look like a fancy restaurant rather than a bakery.
I don't know about the one on Grand, but I do know that the one on Walker is expensive. The food is really good, but I wouldn't go there but for special occasions because the price range is way over that of the other restaurants in chinatown. I love the atmosphere inside though. They have that boiler set up in the middle of the table if you want to do that. It's pretty cool.
Okay, the last time I came in here, it was full of perverted (excuse me for being so harsh, maybe they're just overly friendly) hispanic men who flirt and tease you non-stop. The first man (over the counter) seemed sweet and endearing and I didn't mind the wink at all, but then as I passed through the place, the other workers were all too flirtatious to a downright creep-zone! Beware of men here. Price is also overly expensive. There is nothing compelling me to go back.
