Dine 909 got a little note the other day from Tom over at Pick Up Stix restaurants. He wanted to let us know that they are having a buy-one-entre-get-one-free deal going on right now.
Pick Up Stix has 10 locations in the Inland Empire: San Bernardino, Fontana, Riverside (Canyon Crest and Riverside Plaza), Rancho Cucamonga, Mira Loma, Corona, South Corona, Upland and Chino Hills.
There are a few exceptions to the deal, or course: It’s not good on their Dragon Deals value menu, kids meals or the $5.99 chicken wok combo. Nor is it good on specials or appetizers. Um, and don’t even think of photocopying the coupon.
You have to follow this link and print out the coupon to take advantage of the deal. The coupon is good until the end of May.
However, if you follow this link, you’ll find the buy-one-entre-get-one-free coupon and several more, including free cream cheese wontons with the purchase of two entres, $5 off a $20 purchase and any entre salad for $4.99.
So have at it!
Wow, that Elaine Lehman sure gets around.
I mean, she works for the Daily Bulletin in Ontario, but she eats here and there and everywhere.
Upland, Rancho Cucamonga, Fontana…Yucaipa.
And San Bernardino.
This isn’t her first visit to our fair city, and I’m sure it isn’t her last.
This particular trip was to an old standby, The Little Dragon on Highland Avenue.
…and Friday always brings new reviews.
Well, that, and the obvious.
This week, we’ve got David Cohen’s review of AK Lotus Garden on Hospitality Lane in San Bernardino.
Don’t know where the “AK” came from, but Lotus Garden is a longtime mainstay on Hospitality Lane. I haven’t been for years, but from what I remember, it was pretty good.
Cohen agrees…he gave it four stars.
However, I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I’d consider $25-35 per person “relatively economical.” For that price, and a sampling of 10 dishes, I’m sure you’re going to be carrying home lots of those cardboard take-home cartons though.
My last visit to Lotus Garden was with a vegetarian friend, and he ordered all faux meat dishes for us. They were very delicious and if nobody told you they weren’t meat, you probably wouldn’t guess.
Read David’s review here.
Out in Fontana, Elaine Lehman reviews Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, on Sierra Lakes Parkway (just down from the brand-spankin’-new Mimi’s Cafe…more on that later).
Dear Diary: Today’s the day I lost my dim sum virginity.
A co-worker (Hi, Karen!
) had invited me several times out to join her at Empress Pavilion
in L.A.’s Chinatown, but it never came to fruition.
Despite having worked until 1 a.m., I dragged myself out of bed and was on the way to the Sierra Madre Gold Line station in Pasadena at 8:15 a.m.
I arrived in about an hour, parked the car, climbed up the stairs and crossed over the freeway, caught the rail line to Chinatown and met her and her husband and two of their grandchildren at the restaurant shortly after 10 a.m.
