My first Mongolian BBQ was at another USAF town, Belleville, IL, near Scott AFB. It's a bit of gimmick. Such places are popular in military areas where quantity matters more than quality. It's an All You Can Eat (AYCE) eatery for Asian food, healthier than American AYCE joints, but still, massive calorie intake is never wise eating.
The new Over Easy on N. Nevada in University Village is an awesome eatery. GO.
Those caramels seriously have to be some of the best I have ever had! SO GOOD!
I started visiting Special Grounds because it's close to my house. Used it as a meeting place for my hiking group, and they were all thrilled with the warm welcome and personal attention- one woman declared she would never set foot in a Starbuck's again!
We actually go for the "soupy salad dressing". Go figure. It is all what you like.
From the context I guessed that "dope" means good. I double checked for slang dictionaries on the internet and found that http://onlineslangdictionary.com lists a category of "Words meaning good, okay, cool, awesome, fun" under "dope."
Pardon me - but what does "are dope" mean? My slang dictionary lacks a definition.
Thanks to this review, I had lunch at Fifty Fifty Coffee House last month. The Pressed Turkey Sandwich was delicious and the Fifty Fifty Iced Coffee is addictive (I had 2). The service was also great, and I loved the atmosphere. I will be back.
We really enjoyed the meal from Pho 65 last night - very tasty food and good portions. We had the steak and brisket pho and it was delicious. Also tried the springs rolls - kids love them, and the combination noodle bowl was excellent.
I've been to Joey's; it's good and worth patronizing.
Crowne Plaza wasn't much; nouveau riche Texans now give it a gag-worthy name. Ella-gon-tay. Pretentious to the max. I'll never go, not with a 10 commandments plaque in the lobby; monied Texans are the acme of greed and hypocrisy. They need to choose, are they a hotel or a church; make up your mind. Better yet, go back to Texas.
Where or why did Fine Asian Cuisine Close or move? I need their Vietnamese egg rolls.
China Town's hairgel hot and sour soup is perfect! I have always loved the thicker consistency. China Town please never change your hot n sour soup!
I don't believe that much is organic. On their website, click on the "keeping it natural" tab under "about us." (http://larkburger.com/about-us/keeping-it-…) One of our grievances when we reviewed them last may (http://www.csindy.com/coloradosprings/high…) was that they served commercial meat, which felt a bit like greenwashing considering the other care for sustainability.
Everything at Lark Burger is organic plus they compost and recycle.
But is the kale organic? Otherwise it's not so healthy for you.
Whatever, dude. Just as a New Yorker I find it amazing. Thanks for sharing your awesome experience of NOT eating an authentic Reuben sandwich in the Big Apple. LMAO!
As long as we are on the topic, there are two types of knish: potato and kasha (buckwheat). The kasha knish is baked but the potato knish can be baked, grilled, or deep fried. A potato knish should taste like thick, peppery mashed potatoes. The outside should be flaky if it is baked or chewy if it is fried, but never doughy. I think Mr. Schniper's knish was underdone.
Most New Yorkers, I believe, eat them plain, but I like to dip them in ketchup.
I thought I had made it clear I was talking about kosher delis in NYC. I did not think one could get matzoh ball soup or knishes anywhere else. However, since I left NYC many decades ago, a new category has popped up, called "kosher style" which is not really kosher but features many traditional Jewish dishes. Katz's Delicatessen is listed in Wikipedia as a "kosher style (not a kosher)" restaurant.
Before the emergence of "kosher style" delis, I am guessing, one would have had to go to a German deli to get a reuben sandwich (or a ham and cheese on rye, for that matter). I do not know for sure because I never did see one on any menu when I lived there (which may be only because I was never in the right place).
I think you are confusing a NY Deli with a Kosher NY Deli. I too am from (upstate) NY, and grew up on Rubens at our NY Deli. A Kosher deli is where you get only Kosher Jewish foods. My mom is from Brooklyn and loved their Jewish bakeries along with their deli.
I grew up in New York City, but I never heard of a Reuben Sandwich before I moved to Atlanta. No New York deli serving Matzoh Ball Soup and Knishes would ever serve a Reuben Sandwich, as the mixing of meat and dairy products in the same meal is not kosher.
