Tummy Tales: Al’s Diner

3 vs 1, 3 Hungry teenagers vs Al’s Diner

Address: 新乐路204号近东湖路 – 204 Xinle Lu near Donghu Lu (徐汇区 Xuhui District)

Crowd: We visited on a sunday and it was packed to capacity, we were instructed to leave our names and numbers and they’d give us a call when a table is available. Our quoted wait time  was 30 mins :(. LUCKILY, AND BY PURE LUCK ONLY, we received a call within minutes of being hungry, outcasted, regretful for not making a reservation nomads. 🙂 #hallelujah

Service: Even though we were extremely happy to have gotten a table, they seated us without cleaning up after the previous customers and our table was FILTHY- chicken bones everywhere :(. We sat in filth for about 10 minutes after which we had to actually ASK to have the food removed then ASK AGAIN to have them wipe it down.

Food:

Blueberry Lemon Ricotta Pancakes: YAS these were amazinggggg. The pancakes were the perfect texture and THAT RICOTTA THOUGH. These pancakes go down in the pancake hall of fame. I nominate these pancakes for a grammy. Thank you

Pretty sure this was just called Mac and Cheese: Super creamy super flavorful. I actually got more of a cream vibe than a cheese vibe, that being said i like my mac and cheese cheesy… but it was good…

BONUS: Gracie’s Icecream: Being vegan/vegetarian/whatever i was really hyped about the non-dairy coconut ice cream (so that’s what i got) and it was pretty good, It was really creamy and the consistency was perfectttt.
