Re: Upcoming Vegas Trip - Aria restaurants, Raku...

Ok, heading to Vegas with the family (including #theweelees) in a couple weeks for a milestone birthday. Main reason to go is to eat & probably catch 1 show. Do we just go LOS and Raku? Or are there other spots (that allow kids) that we should consider? Looks like Chada Thai and Chada Street are bot...

OBON

I was originally super exited to try this as I love craft cocktails and awesome ramen. With Dom’s reviews, my expectations were tempered. I was in no rush to get there. We did try it in Tucson a few months ago & liked it better then. We were at Press across the street and it was getting late on Sund...

New Product Sightings in AZ Retail Stores!!!

So I posted on IG and such in the past. I always love when something good that we cannot get retail shows up in our stores. I mentioned that Montenegro is sold at the AJ's on 44th & Camelback (along with a good amount of interesting stuff) but it's now also at Total Wine and BevMo. I also saw that T...

Re: House of Egg Roll

Went back last week and it was kind of uneven for us too. Hot & sour dumpling soup (pork) was good but lacked a little of the brightness of flavors that we'd had before. Shaanxi-Style Handmade Noodles, which upon finding HOER was one of our favorite dishes, was pretty bland. Noodles were pretty cold...

Re: Chengdu Delight Chinese Cuisine - Chandler

Thanks for the post! In hindsight, seems like we've gone way too long without a Chengdu named restaurant in AZ. :)

Re: Late Night Ga Hyang, Thu 2/4 @ 10:00 PM

I wish we could be there. Having to take a "tastes good" food hiatus until my blood work turns around. Then hopefully we'll be back. :(

Enjoy!

Re: Dinghao Shanghai Bistro

Nice reports, Tim H!

Makes me want to get back there. I had the same experience on the XLB. Too many had lost their soup.

Your pics & recommendations make me want to give it another try though so we will!

Re: House of Egg Roll

Ok. So I'd brought #theweelees here once before for a quick bite - just had 2 soups and they loved it. When we were on our way home from picking them up from ballet on Saturday, we asked where they wanted to grab a bite. The unanimous chorus was HOER. So we headed there for dinner. Had a nice (male)...

Re: Sakana Sushi - Scottsdale

We used to have an office right there & would go over for lunch specials all the time. It was pretty solid. Never thought to go hardcore though. Then we had them cater a holiday party & talking with the staff, they were like "we can do all that stuff" when we were talking about our favorites. Went i...

Re: House of Egg Roll

Had the tomato egg soup that Chef Gwen mentioned yesterday. It was lovely. Delicate, subtle. I'm glad it came out before the hot & sour dumpling soup though. That is so flavorful that we might not have appreciated it as much. Gwen mentioned adding some vinegar from the table. Will have to try that. ...

Re: 2015 Dining Goals/Resolutions

I need to do this if only to knock some major omissions off. Love the idea of a list to cross off. I have still never been to Pho Thanh. Never been to Noble Eatery, Gertrude's, Richardson's, The Bagel Man, Alzohour, Dozo Izakaya & I don't know what else. I'd also love to see some other folks' can't ...

House of Egg Roll

Ok, so I've kind of been wanting to go here for a while now really as a goof just because of the name of the restaurant. I work pretty nearby & we go to Chou's pretty often. My coworker & I also drive by on other occasions. I actually mentioned it to him a week or two ago that I wanted to just go be...
