Re: “It's a Tea Party: Three New Boise Tea Houses Open

Joyful Tea is absolutely fantastic! My husband & I stop to have dinner at any one of three ethnic restaurants & grab a pot of tea at Joyful Tea. Terry & Karen simply ask what you are having for dinner & they provide a tea to complement your meal.

Re: “It's a Tea Party: Three New Boise Tea Houses Open

I agree with everything that Goodmusic71 wrote except the location. JoyfulTea is near the intersection of Franklin and Curtis.

Re: “It's a Tea Party: Three New Boise Tea Houses Open

Joyful Tea is just a wonderful experience! Their sole focus is TEA and Terry knows tea and can explain any aspect of it more clearly than anyone I've ever met anywhere. Do yourself a favor and check them out the next time you're over near Franklin and Cole!

'Leaf Teahouse' is nice! Best thing to occupy the space it's in for as long as I can remember.

Re: “Flavored Tequilas

Antiguo Tequila straight up, Don Julio is a good Tequila also, too good to mix.
I almost bought a bottle of Mexican Moonshine today. I first heard of it in Yelapa, it was called Raicilla years ago but if you happen to be there they know what Raicilla is! I guess they decided to bottle it and make a profit from it!

Re: “Europe Delicious

Couldn't agree more! I visited Europe Delicious today to feed my Yugo-nostalgia, and it did the trick. The Ćevapi was perfect and Sead is an unbelievably warm soul. Hvala lepa!!

Re: “Kibrom's Restaurant

I agree! What a treat to have authentic Ethiopian cuisine right here in Boise. The 'combination' meals are the 'best deal' in my view, as you get tastes of multiple dishes for a good price.
Also, the picture shows a plastic fork - would be better to show someone eating the meal with injera in the right hand!

Re: “How To Cook A Wolf

People do not need to eat meat. That being said, there is plenty enough meat in the grocery stores for those who choose to eat it. No one needs to hunt for meat - hunting is a penis measuring exercise and trophy hunters are the worst of the measurers. However, those measurers will always have a reason why they "need" to kill wildlife - and, in my opinion, those reasons are as idiotic and meaningless as the hunter/measurer. Oh, and please don't post your trophy kills on Facebook - many people don't care to see that and are quite offended by it.

Re: “Kibrom's Restaurant

First timer at Kibrom's today. The Derho (chicken) was freakin' awsome. The Red Tibs was also very good, but not as rich or complex as the Berbere sauce (which IMO would make an old shoe completely edible). grab a coffee/or tea when you're done and browse the International Market.

Re: “Kibrom's Restaurant

We had our first meal at Kibrom's last week. It was authentic and delicious! We are so happy to have their delicious cooking here in the Treasure Valley!

Re: “Top Three Wines

Thanks for this great review, and for including two Idaho wines! I'm looking forward to trying the Donkey and Goat. We would love to hear what you think about our wines at Telaya too, right now in the same building as Cinder!

Spreading of beer, Brewforia has been a real bust for me. I ordered a case of beer and they never sent it and are refusing to refund my money

Re: “Prost Boise Brings German Fare to Eighth Street

The beers of northern Germany generally are quite "hoppy," even to the point of bitterness in the mouths of some people. The original Becks (not the one they send to us in the U.S.) and St. Pauli Girl are excellent in this regard. Bitburger Pils is perhaps the best beer in the world, even better than Pilsner Urquell. Bitte, ein Bit'! The phrase in Germany is "'Bit will Weile," meaning Bitburger takes a while. In other words, order the second draft as soon as you get the first, because the head takes several minutes to go down--the way it sould be with all beers, in my opinion.

Re: “Prost Boise Brings German Fare to Eighth Street

As a long time beer aficionado who finds IPAs highly boring and overrated I welcome a brew pub highlighting German style beers. So you IPA snobs can hang out out with that sellout brewing company from Bend called 10 Barrel Brewing. I plan to patronize oval Brewers of craft beers that aren't sell outs and brew pubs who are up front about what they Ste selling and where it comes from. Truth in advertising and ownership.
