I skip the won ton and go for the hot and sour - plenty of flavor in that at the restaurants I frequent.

If your going to do a shoutout the least you could do is include a link to your new found fav.

Well, a lot of this probably has to do with most Chinese food restaurants in the US being a very radical version of actual Chinese food fitted for a fast bucks, fast food ethos. Probably still a lot better for you than a lot of other fast foods out there though.

If you're in southeast pennsylvania, then I will tell you that there are some pretty great places in Philadelphia which do that sort of thing. Actually, what I'd recommend most is eating pho (vietnamese soup noodles with an incredible aromatic broth) in parts of south philly or chinatown or other parts. Philadelphia has surprisingly amazing pho.

Lutefisk.

This is some weird Norwegian dish. I think it is supposed to kill folks who are not Norwegian. Like Irish folks drinking Tequila.

Some things don't cross mix multiculturally....

When a dish involves lye, I usually pass.

Default The Reason I prefer to eat at home

Yes, we like to eat out once in awhile, we did yesterday as a matter of fact. We have lunch at Panera's and had a very good lunch. Later we went to Sam's to do some shopping and we ran a few more errands. I dicided to check out the cost of frozen Lobster at Sam's cause the spoiled brat is having a birthday soon. Well it was $18.00 a lb so for $22 I got 2 huge lobster tails. We will grill them plus maybe a small steak. Total cost for both: about $$25.00. Add a green salad: cost; about $3.00 (max, including home made dressing) baked pots, 1 for each with everything on them: $2.00. Add a bottle of wine, $10.00.So for less than $40 we will be enjoying a $100 dinner. Is my thinking right or wrong, what do you think?

That's what I'd do. Plus, if you're over .08 alcohol after the wine it's nobody's business but yours.

Check out my thread on a quick and tasty salad dressing as well. I guarantee you'll both love it.
