Places to aim my picky brother-in-law at the Century City Plaza?
I'm being taken on a shopping spree there Saturday (hooray), and we'd like to eat at the food court or "Dining terrace" as they say.
Me, I'm happy with a Gelson's salad and a roll from breadbar (or a chocolate croissant!)
My BIL is hard to please. He's a meat andf potatoes man, but his supposed favorite place is Yamashiro. he finds fault at every place I've taken him-Hugo's, Senior Fred, -even Saddle Peak Lodge, where he made a big deal after ordereing the lobster appetizer and complaining that he only got a small piece of lobster. (Dude, it's an APPETIZER, you aren't getting the tail and claws for that price!)
The only place we have agreed upon is Kyushu Ramen.
He likes simple food with MAN sized portions, and I mean HUNGRY MAN!
What would be good for him for an enjoyable lunch whilst I sup on my salad?
OF course, he might go to Pink Taco, just for the name alone. I hope he doesn't!
You could take him to Ummba Grill, which is a cafeteria-style Brazillian restaurant. He can order different meats off skewers and side dishes, including potatoes, and pay by weight. The meats are decent, if not great, and some are salty. But I found the food by-and-large tasty.
Ummba is next to the food court, on the upper level. I assume you can get food at Ummba and then go sit with people who are getting food at other locations.
