Last night, we continued the quest for a new Chinese buffet by heading up to Rand and Arlington Heights Road to try out one that is next to the now-closed Hancock Fabrics. It flunked. It was decidedly mediocre, although it was the second consecutive Chinese buffet that we went to that was serving flan.
Last weekend, we thought we'd try some of the alternative fast food. On Saturday, we went to Photo's Hotdogs at Wolf and Kensington. It passed the test for burgers -- at least, that's all we tried -- so it goes on the rotation. It certainly smelled right when we walked in there.
On Sunday, we planned to go to the Gyros Factory at Wolf and Central, but they're closed on Sunday. So we hit them for lunch on Saturday this week. Unfortunately, the gyros were a bit bland and dry, the burgers a bit small and also dry. Nice folks, but I wasn't thrilled by the food, so we'll probably not go by there again.
