  1. Gabrielle Hamilton's was a very good read. I flew through it in two days. I put down Jay Rayner's book when I learned Hamilton's was out. I like Rayner's book so far.
  2. If you are going to add the bit about the hat make sure you mention that they should carry their health insurance card in the front left pocket of their jeans as they will probably need it.
  3. Went about two weeks ago. I made sure to ask for them and to say I really like them so don't hold back on the lamb with hot sauce and they put a whole bunch on. It was the best version of the dish I have ever had.
  4. I had takeout Saturday night. Double Cooked Pork, Mapo Tofu,Lamb in Hot Sauce and Dumplings in Chili Oil. While I heard the Sad news that Han does not come round much anymore, I was told that Philly was treating him well. Back to the food. It was out of this world good! Screaming hot spicy and delicious. Whatever quailty bumps I experienced in the past this was what drew me here in the first place. Great food.
  5. The Yukejang (sp) spicy korean soup at August Moon in Norristown is a tasy warm bowl of goodness.
  6. Well I took the plunge and tried the Taste of the Tropics in Phoenixville. I don't know how fair a test it is since my wife and I ordered take out, we just did not have time for a sit down meal, and we have never had fillipino food before so Please do not use my comments to decide whether to try it for yourself because I don't know whether it was good or bad in comparison to other restaurants that sell this kind of food. I was curious as I never had this style of cooking before. I will say at the beginning that I have purchased items from their little grocery next store for years. The oweners
  7. Anyone try the new fillipino restaurant "Taste of the Tropics" on rte 23 where Thai L'Elephant used to be? I know nothing really about Fillipino food, would like to know what's good and what to try. They have a website and it all looks good.
  8. I have stopped going to the royersford and exton locations all together. Since Han moved himself to philly both have had over a half a dozen meals there and there are not the same when Han is in residence. Service at the royersford location has been consistently poor 45-1 wait for entree items. I double cooked pork and got pig intestines. I went with it a GAAH I like offal, just not offal that tastes like Sh#$@. I have had pig intestine before, this was a cleaning issue and put me off the location for 4 months. The food with the noted exception is good but the service challenges again and agai
  9. Aux Petite Delice did the cake for my, my wife's 40th birthday and my daughter's confirmation. I look for excuses to drive to wayne to stop in.
  10. Oseland flirting with the other judge, the brit, whose name escapes me was a hoot! I like this panel of judges there are interesting to watch. I get the impression from reading Oseland's cookbook that he must have a really sensitive palate which may explain why he reacts differently and rather strongly.
  11. Out in Royersford they have baby bamboo shoots in Chili Oil. If they have that a center city you should give it a try it was crazy good. One night Han went in back and made me chicken with dry hot peppers "his way" which means massive amounts of yummy garlic, if you can ever talk him into doing that for you, you should it made a great dish even better!
  12. Hittng town staying in Grafton, any must do places?
  13. We called them "gas house " eggs. I have no clue way. Awesome way to have eggs - it might explain the Zocor I'm on now!
  14. I had the duck in Beer sauce tonight. Its the tea smoke duck in a beer sauce with dried and pickled chilis, ginger, lotus root, garlic, leeks, shitake mushrooms and flower peppercorms. Oh man that broth! Hot, beery did I mention hot! Whoo hoo exactly what I wanted! This is a wonderful dish!
  15. I don't know if it is fair to throw rocks for being in a commerical. The guy has a right to make a living. Kids are expensive, I wish I could bag a commercial deal to help pay for mine. The first few epsiodes of this new season have been very enjoyable. I thought the street food episode while not gold was at least entertaining. Kind of like the food porn one. They have a lot of left over bits and pieces and I think try to make use of them. Given the alternative to this consistently entertaining show is something along the lines of Paris Hilton BFF and 16 and pregnant, I don't think I am going
