We went to Garlic Jo’s in Newport Beach two weeks ago on a Saturday. I honestly wasn’t that blown away by their use of garlic. Maybe it’s because we already use a lot of garlic at home when we cook, but I was expecting more.
I had the Garlic Beef Fried Rice ($10.95) and it was just sort of average, plus for being what I observed as an entree it didn’t really seem like much. Would be better if you could order it as a side for a “real entree.
Lastly we had the Garlic Ice Cream which was loaded with some the thickest whipped cream I can remember, but really didn’t have much “homemade” garlic taste, the vanilla overpowered any garlic that happened to be in it.
Service was really good, the waiter was nice.
