A couple months ago I went to b2 bistro which is getting rave reviews on Yelp. It was shit. Am I just turning into a cranky old man or something?
Here’s the review I recently posted on Yelp:
Either I went on a really off night or y’all reviewers need to check your wallet and taste buds.
This place is pretty much the epitome of a terrible gastropub. They give fancy names and presentations to mediocre at best dishes and mark them up 2x what it’s worth.
Their pork belly tacos were not any better than any random taco from any Mexican place but twice the price. Who the fuck shreds up pork belly? I could not tell what part of the pig the pork came from at all because it was completely shredded up. And I don’t know how this is even possible, but it was DRY. How do you make pork belly dry? All you people saying these tacos were good need to get out and try some tacos that don’t suck. I mean they might literally be the worst tacos I’ve ever had, mainly because most tacos are fucking great. I mean just look at the pictures of this sadness that’s posted here and look at the amount of meat on each taco. It’s a travesty.
The other dish I ate was literally so unmemorable that I don’t remember what it was.
Finally, there was a “roast pork” on the menu. It was $25. For that money I got maybe 6ozs of pork and a tiny salad. The pork was again, shredded up and dry. They take shredded pork and form it into a brick and put on a piece of skin on top. The skin was fine, had a nice crisp to it, but the pork sucked. The salad was retarded.
