I've got a hankering for a sandwich from Empire Cafe. Mmmm. We have to go back to Houston in May for my Wife's graduation, so I'll hit-up a few of my favorite spots.

Default Had dinner at Zinc last night

Somewhat a mixed bag. The duck spring rolls and chicken crepe appetizers
were superb; the mixed green salads that followed were absolutely awash in
vinaigrette and inedible. The wine was a Coppala Merlot which was good. We
were also offered a sampling of two Pinot Noirs and thought there were very
good.

My wife had the steelhead trout and I had the lamb. The trout was excellent
on a good bed of squash and other seasonal veggies. My lamb was also excellent,
but served on a bed of overcooked veggies and what looked like Tater Tots,
only without the crisp exteriors.

Dessert was OK, but not anything to write home about. The expresso was
good, but I make as good or possibly better at at home

We had a good time, but in the future I think we'll either graze on appetizers
or stick to brunch (excellent by the way).

Went with a group to Bangkok Fusion on Central between San Pedro and San Mateo last night. Great Thai Ginter, Green Curry, very fresh spring wraps. Unless you are totally adventerous the medium spicy is enough, the hot spicy is like fire!

I think the three best Chinese restaurants in ABQ are Chopstix, Hua Chang and Ming Dynasty. For Asian fusion, I really like Jinja. Chinese buffets are completely off my radar, as no food does well sitting in warmer trays for hours. Typical Chinese buffet food is even more uninspired than the typical Albuquerque version of Chinese food. Is your measurement quality of food, variety or cost?

well, for going to a chinese buffet, i would say variety is on my mind. i kinda just want to gorge myself once in a while, and the main place to do that is at a buffet. is ming dynasty no longer a buffet? i think it used to be several years back when i went regularly.

I think they do...we love their dim sum so we've never eaten their buffet. I do remember seeing it, maybe three or four months ago.

If you want Asian + gorge, the all you can eat sushi place on Central ( the one that shares a building with Korean BBQ ) is really good. You only have an hour, but you can eat A LOT of sushi in an hour.
