Re: Pho Thanh

Yes, it's now triple the size of when it took over the old Pho Bang space. More people than ever are being served, and the food hasn't suffered at all. When the parking lot in front is full, people park in back or along 17th Avenue. There's also a light rail station just two blocks away at 19th Ave ...

Re: Republica Empanada

Nice dinner tonight at RE. With fall here, it was all about the pumpkins with Four Peaks Pumpkin Porter among the seasonal beer selections, pumpkin decor, and pumpkin empanadas featured on the menu. The pumpkin empanadas had a filling of pumpkin flesh mixed with cranberries, spices, and mozzarella c...

Re: Oasis Bakery & Cuisine

With Haji Baba so close, how would you rate them comparatively? I can compare them in descriptive terms, but not rate one as better than the other, because each one has its own strengths. Haji Baba seems a more generalized Arab / Middle Eastern restaurant, although it does have some distinctive dis...

Re: Oasis Bakery & Cuisine

We had a family dinner at Oasis last night. I was concerned that the restaurant had so few customers and that almost no pastries were on display. Then, I remembered that Friday is day of religious significance to Muslims, who may be a significant portion of the restaurant's clientele. I'll have to v...

Re: Foodnik Thursday Breakfast 9/17 - Nocawich 8am

I wish I could! By the way -- how's parking? I tend to shy away from that whole Mill Ave/ASU area for that reason but I think I'm tempted enough to brave it one of these days..... The 32nd St. location would've been far more convenient, alas (what has happened with that space? I don't even know). T...

Re: Long Waits for Food

anyone else remember the original pizzeria bianco also at the town and country? Yes, the "new" location at Town & Country is actually a return to the restaurant's original site, even though Heritage Square is an older building with a more historic feel. Of course, going back even earlier, it can be...

Re: Long Waits for Food

I have to confess that I have not yet visited Pizzeria Bianco, because of the warning on long wait time and the location is a little further from us. But I think it also is because my husband and I are much more into BBQ than pizza. So, I guess the customers will also have to decide what is more im...

Re: Long Waits for Food

It's late and I'm drinking bourbon....We sell 7 to 1 fatty to lean so it goes really fast but we still need to sell the rest of each brisket. This past Saturday I must have had 25 people order fatty brisket before I had my first one ask for lean. Two questions: 1) Can you pass out some of that bour...

Re: Long Waits for Food

I like waiting at Little Miss which I know is weird but the excitement builds. I actually feel like i miss a little of the experience when I walk right in and order. Now....the long wait thing that is just crazy to me is breakfast places. There is always a monster pack of people waiting to get into...

Re: Long Waits for Food

To me, a barbecue place that takes reservations wouldn't really seem like an authentic barbecue experience. Waiting a bit, ordering at a counter, and sometimes seeing an item sell out -- that's all part of the barbecue experience. Some of the most revered barbecue places in Austin still operate unde...

Re: Rice Cooker?

The expensive cooker plays Twinkle Twinkle Little Star when you start the rice and Amaryllis Air Louis XIII when the rice is finished. I truly love this. It just makes me happy to hear it. You can also make a Japanese style cake in the expensive rice cooker, something I have been meaning to get aro...

Re: Rice Cooker?

I'm not sure what it would mean to work a rice cooker by hand. Do you mean manually adjusting the settings rather than just accepting pre-programmed defaults? In any case, I recently bought a Zojirushi. For years, I'd be using cheaper models from Cuisinart and Krups, both of which produced acceptabl...

Re: Arcadia Premium

At first, I thought this was going to be about how restaurants can charge $5 more per entree if they're located in Arcadia (actual or imagined boundaries). Glad to hear about a neighborhood business instead.

Re: Prescott must-dos?

Two other quick notes about Prescott: First, Esoji, the Japanese restaurant mentioned earlier in the thread, has moved. The new location is on Iron Springs Road, about 2 1/2 miles away from the original location downtown. We did not visit the new location, but it appears they're putting some more em...
