I love rice bowls; in fact, I might even have a slightly unhealthy obsession with them.
When I first came to Yuma three years ago, I was depressed to see a total lack of Asian food places, but with a little bit of looking and recon work, I found a few.
I had been told that Papa San was a good place to get a rice bowl and was guaranteed by a civilian colleague that I would run into someone I knew there, because she always did.
My wife and I went there for lunch one weekend, and letâ€™s just say it was a less than pleasurable experience.
I honestly canâ€™t tell what the food tastes like, because after standing in front of the register for nearly ten minutes being completely and utterly ignored by the employees, with a ever growing line behind us, we finally gave up and left.
I did see the food that was coming out of the kitchen, and it wasnâ€™t the most appetizing food Iâ€™ve ever seen. Again, I canâ€™t comment on the taste of it, but the customer service was so atrocious, I canâ€™t imagine the food quality being much better.
Somehow, this place is still popular. I pretty much vowed that day to never return, but weâ€™ll see if I go back or not. Iâ€™ve gone three years in Yuma without a decent rice bowl, I imagine I can last until my eventual change of duty station, and can only hope I go somewhere with a little more culinary variety.
We were both still hungry, so we went to Taco Bell to try the taco with the Doritos shell, which tasted like complete disappointment. Itâ€™s overrated, it tastes just like a normal taco, donâ€™t buy one.
