Re: restaurants per capita

Plus, restaurants are just bigger here. I'd be willing to bet that cities with more sprawl tend to be further down the list. In a sardine can metro region like San Francisco, restaurants are only going to be so big and you're going to need more of them to serve the same number of people. Just one fa...

Re: Filling the Korean Food Void

Yeah, there is no replacing Ga Hyang :-/ That list should still be good. I'll second Sizzle for BBQ, or Manna if you feel compelled to do the AYCE thing. Soups at Hodori, some good stuff at Seoul. But the duk boki, the haemul pajeon, both versions of the naeng myun and especially the banchan... all ...

Pho Winglee - Mesa Vietnamese

So many places to fill in from the board's downtime! One of my personal favorites to emerge over the last couple of years is Pho Winglee, the little pho shop connected to Wing Lee Fresh Poultry. Run by Walleye (pronounced Wally) Lai and Tina Truong, it isn't substantially different from the usual ph...

Omurice

Though I have to do it far less often these days than I did in 2010, moving to Phoenix once got me in the habit of simply cooking the things that I couldn't find in restaurants around town. Enter, omurice: Omurice.jpg Unless you're familiar with the form, it's perhaps a little tricky to discern the ...

Re: Hash Kitchen - breakfast in Scottsdale

My issues with Hash Kitchen were kind of all poetically summed up in one of the dishes I had the last time I was there. The corned beef hash, beyond being bland, had no crisp or sizzle or any sort of freshly griddled character, and yet it was served in a cast iron skillet... that was ice cold. My op...

Re: Nishikawa Ramen - Phoenix

Anyone been to the Phoenix location? Haven't tried the Chandler location but have been decidedly unimpressed so far which is disappointing as I was very excited to have a ramen spot close by. None of the broths have been all that flavorful, the chashu portion is meager (and not as tender as I'd lik...

A little early, I know, but I have a 1:00 appointment in the 'hood and have been meaning to check this place out forever. Anybody want to grab some Greek on Thursday?
