Yuma SouthWestern Grill

Ok, this was supposed to have gone up some time ago, but I’ve been so busy that we in fact have managed to eat a few at Yuma since our first time there. I guess that in itself is a good sign, as we don’t tend to go back to places we don’t like…

We’ve tried all sorts of things ranging from ribs and pasta to starters and Quesadillas. The Fajitas might not be as authentic as the stuff served up by Eddy’s Cantina, but it’s more to my taste. The tortillas seem to be freshly made by Yuma and are at least grilled before being served. I found the Peri-Peri ribs to be a bit on the sour side, but they were way better than the fatty stuff that TGI’s serve up.

The pasta was good too and the cheese Quesadillas are great. Just be aware that both the Quesadillas and Fajita’s come with a side of rice, so you get a pretty big meal, unlike what you get at TGI’s once again. The starters are also good, although a bit more dip sauce wouldn’t go amiss, as it’s not quite enough sauce to go with all of the starters on their sampler platter. Yuma also have a bunch of different sauces to go with your food which is also a bonus.

One oddity is the fact that the coleslaw comes with lingonberry jam, although I think they’ve mixed it up with cranberry sauce, but the two doesn’t taste anything remotely the same.

I suggest you head over to Yuma and have a try yourself, as the food is great. You can find their website here and the location is marked on on the FindIT map.

Update:¬†Sadly this place has closed and On Tap, a UK style pub has taken over the location, although they’ve kept some of the menu items, or at least something fairly similar.

Computex aftermath

So, the start of netbooknews.com went much better than I hoped for and with Computex over and done with the real work is starting. I have to say that I’m very happy with the team behind the site and as long as we can keep up the momentum that we’ve started, the site should keep gaining popularity quickly.

Doing video content is an entirely new thing to me, but it turns out that at least the stuff I do isn’t all that difficult after all. It still freaks me out to listen to my own voice, but I guess this is normal. Still a lot of things to learn about how to do it all properly, but I guess I’m at least ok both in front and behind the camera considering I’ve never done any of this before. I’ve also figured out how to edit video, although this is still a serious learning process.

Apart from all this, life is pretty good. I even had someone I know from the UK that was over here for Computex come up to me and commenting on how happy I looked. I guess that’s a good thing ūüėĬ†It’s funny how things work out sometimes, but it looks like once again I’m off to new and exciting things, just fingers crossed that it all works out.

I’ve got a couple of ¬†things I need to finish off and get posted on the site and I’m really sorry about the lack of updates, but the past few weeks have been insanely busy.
