  1. Just noticed this...Ellada's - is that the Greek/Mediterranean place? If so, they've been in Dundee for quite a while - 620 N 50th St. Great food...very small. I never knew they had a spot out on Center.
  2. i agree. no offense to anyone, but i always cringe when i hear this question. since it's one that gets asked soooo frequently. my stock response is always: "my house". i've honestly never had a steak at any restaurant that i've thought was better then what i could cook in my own yard - especially when i splurged on lobel's (drool). there are so many great places in this town to eat it's a shame that people miss out on a lot of stuff in the search for the fabled 'great omaha steak'. i've not been to omaha prime either, but it is a place that usually gets mentioned the most along with the overra
  3. I've also seen this around at area Hy-Vee's in 24-oz singles. If I remember the cost was pretty out there...$3, $4 bucks or something. I remember looking at it and wondering if maybe the price tag was for a 6-pack and not the big can, but that was not the case. might try it now, though.
  4. The Vietnamese Asian Restaurant is actually the full name.
  5. Reviews in the OWH are worhtless. Check out the couple of free publications: City Weekly and The Reader. They both have substantially better reviews. One of the reviewers, Ken Mayer, in particular comes across as fairly knowledgeable about food.
  6. The Indian Oven (10th and Howard). If you enjoy Indian food, I think it is one of the better Indian restaurants in the town Another good spot for Indian is The Sitar (2819 S 125th - - they have a lunch buffet, but their dinner menu is really good too). If you would like Italian try Malara's (2123 Pierce) Marino's (79th & Harrison, I believe), or Lo Sole Mio (3001 S 32nd). For Mexican, I would recommend Gudalajara (20th & L. good pozole and tortas) or maybe La Mesa in Bellevue (605 Fort Crook Rd - try the Chile Verde or Chile Colorado; Chilaquiles are good as well) or El Alamo (4917 S
  7. 1,000 Mexican Recipes by Marge Poore. I have all the Kennedy and Bayless, a few from Zarela, and have read all of Quintana's; but this is probably the Mexican cookbook I would recommend just for the sheer volume of usable recipes. I'd second the rec on Mexico the Beautiful, great coffee table book that is also quite practical. However, if your collection is totally lacking in this area or if you are totally new to Mexican cooking, Diana Kennedy's The Essential Cuisines of Mexico is probably the one to own. A few other good ones: The Mexican Gourmet by Maria Dolores Torres Yzabal Recipe of Mem
  8. hey nan - i'm not real familiar with a lot of the liquor stores around town, but do know you can find a selection of a lot of the imports mentioned here at the World Market store out around 78th Dodge. prices, of course, are a bit steeper then your average bud. i'd suggest picking up a bottle of lambic out there. i think they carry the Lindeman's brand - try the cherry (kriek). great, great stuff. i think a 25 or so ounce bottle is like 6 bucks or something - worth it, though.
  9. this one from Bayless is servicable: click for 'Chiles Rellenos' recipe i like to make some meat, some cheese.
  10. there's a recipe here: click for 'Fried Green Tomato Hornworms' recipe on a related note, here is a recipe here for hornworm feed if you would like to raise your own larva: click for Tobacco Hornworm Artificial Diet recipe
  11. I don't know if PBS did this in other broadcast areas but in my area they were showing previews for the final episode before showing the previews for the second to last episode...the focal point of the finale preview being the identity of the last 3 contestants. Kinda takes the surprise outta this next one for me.
  12. Here's one listing of the CI recipe. Will not attest to it's accuracy to the source, though: click here for CI's Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe
  13. Don't know what you can get in one place but can't get in the other...but off the top of my head I'd think: annato (achiote) seed mexican oregano epazote (but might as well grow your own, dried is useless) chiles: ancho, guajillo, pasilla, arbol, cascabel (in order of importance) canela piloncillo tamarind some packaged/bottled/canned stuff: el yucateco or goya habanero sauce cholula or tapatio hot sauce bufalo hot sauce cans of herdez salsa (good in a pinch when too lazy to make your own) ibarra chocolate if you're up for it you can also look for some utensils: tortilla press, molcajete, tama
  14. When searching, do NOT use the search boxes displayed beneath the banner at the top of the page...instead click the 'Search' link allllll the way at the top of the page, then: search for: "food processor" (in quotations - this will only return searches with these two words together, which is what you want) -> search all forums -> sort however you want -> search titles only Give it a try! You'll see you only get back a handful of threads.
  15. Also, depending on where you live, you may see New Mexicos also labeled as California, Anahiem or Colorado chiles. Some of the pics on this page can help you identify them by sight: click here for fresh and dried chile info.
