I ended up eating at fat rice, as you can tell from the post above I was recovering from a bad cold and my sinuses were still congested, but I don't really think my congestion affected my enjoyment of the meal that much. I started out with three bites, cold marinated peanuts, pigs ears, and a terrific plate of eggplants in a spicy sauce. the first two weren't that interesting but the sambal on the eggplants was really nice. I may have ordered wrong but I didn't like rest of the food. we had the curry vegetables chamucas, which weren't very well fried and had little flavor, and again the sauce was the best thing on the plate. the other thing we ordered is the signature arroz gordo, which is a clay pot of rice with duck, olives, and raisins it it with sausage, curried chicken thighs, chili prawns, char su, a tea egg, croutons, olives, a lemon with chili powder, and probably some other things piled on top. the rice was a little dry and most of the toppings weren't good, I think the raisins and olives were the only things I really liked, the prawn was okay but the sausage, char su, and clams were all pretty bad.
so as I said we might have had better luck ordering off the rest of the menu, the concept is really appealing to me, but I think bun-ker, uncle boons, and even two duck goose with carole greenwood in the kitchen offer or offered much better executed food with better ingredients.
I did manage to have a nice meal at frontera grill despite the limited lunch menu, and the burger I had at the kuma inn was a good bar burger but not as good as what you get at the double windsor. my enjoyment of kuma inn may have been spoiled by the overproduced boring black metal they were blaring over what's probably the best sound system I've heard in a bar.
