Ratatouille: La Recette Du Bon Goût ...

By Lyn, published on Nov 3, 2007

...dans lequel le sens des valeurs n'est pas associé aux siens, qui ont une vie de rongeur des restes afin de survivre. Histoires d'amitié avec Linguini et le fameux rat, la progéniture du grand chef , d'amour entre Linguini et Colette, de trahison avec Skinner à la tête du restaurant qui essaiera en vain de doubler Linguini et pour finir avec le happy ending tant attendu, cette projection est à voir autant pour les enfants que pour les adultes. Les ingrédients du film étant aussi démodés que le bien finit toujours pas triompher, nous nous ennuyons pas une... (more)

Spicy Crab Soup Addiction at Ondal 2

By pleasurepalate, published on Oct 24, 2007

My name is Abby and I'm an Ondal 2 Spicy Crab Soup Addict. Don't laugh. I'm serious. Generally, when I re-visit a restaurant, I never order the same thing twice because I like exploring the menu. During my second visit to Ondal 2, I didn't even look at the menu. #2 has been embedded in my brain since my first visit, so #2 for the Spicy Crab Soup was coming my way and not soon enough. So why so much love? Well, even before the soup arrives, our meal starts off first with a salad and then a tasty onslaught of about 9 different panchan dishes, which were all delicious and flavorful. Than out comes... (more)

Meat the Biggest Burger in the World

By Ed Attanasio, published on Oct 22, 2007

A Pennsylvania restaurant put a 15-pound burger on its menu, claiming that it is the largest burger available anywhere. Dennis Liegey, the owner of Denny's Beer Barrel Pub in Clearfield, 120 northeast of Pittsburgh, said the "Beer Barrel Belly Buster" weighs in with 10 pounds of meat molded into a 20-inch patty on a specially baked, 17-inch bun. The balance of the weight comes from 25 slices of cheese, one small barbell, a head of lettuce, a small dwarf, three tomatoes, an anvil, two onions, plus copious quantities of mayo, ketchup, relish, mustard, and peppers. For fifty cents extra, you... (more)

You say Dim Sum I say Yum Cha let's call the whole thing off

By V, published on Oct 16, 2007

... call it, it can be eaten wherever in the world Chinese people can be found. Seated at large, round tables, everyone shares the dishes that are selected – by way of pointing – from trolleys piled high with piping-hot, metal & bamboo steamers. These wheeled carts crisscross the restaurant, back and forth from the kitchen. Each table is provided with a card that lists the foods and prices in Chinese script. This card is stamped with a tiny smiley face by the trolley server each time you select a steamer. The smiley faces in the mysterious boxes are added at the end of the meal... (more)

Another Smoke Screen for California

By Ed Attanasio, published on Oct 11, 2007

...this point. California has passed so many laws that limit where people can smoke, that it just seems like they're dodging the inevitable. If smoking is so bad for us and the state keeps limiting where we can smoke – then why is it still legal? First, they said no smoking in bars or restaurants. That one I agree with…partially. Anyone who would smoke in a restaurant is rude and an inconsiderate idiot any way, in my opinion. Bars I have a little different feeling about. I think bar owners should be able to designate a certain area within their establishment for smoking if they ... (more)

Ecuador....And a Jumble of My Useless Thoughts

By Steven Lane, published on Sep 30, 2007

...in Ecuador was shrimp ceviche. I love ceviche, but to my surprise, the local version is always served with patacones and, yes, popcorn. My host introduced me to the national Ecuadorian breakfast. Again green bananas come into play. The dish is known as "bolla". My friend took me to a local restaurant where about 100 people were in line, she set me at a table to save seats and joined the line. About ten minutes later she arrived with a tray that had a large multicolored grapefruit sized ball in the middle of it. That ball was the revered "bolla", she quickly cut the globe in half and... (more)

How do we (or just me?) eat in Los Angeles?

By Ivana Poulova, published on Sep 24, 2007

Someone doesn't start a day without a coffee, someone without a cigarette and someone without internet. I'm that kind of person who needs some surfing in the morning. I rarely skip my two morning hours on a computer. So I woke up giving it a try once again. At Google I searched for Czech restaurants in LA. I really thought in plural at that time. How rudicilous! I found one restaurant. Then I found that it doesn't exist anymore. Mexicans bought it in order to open a Mexican fast food. But they went broke. At every corner there is at least one booth with a "Tacos, Tortas, Burritos, Tamales, Taquitos,... (more)

Giving It Up At Dorothy's Surrender

By VeroniqueChevalier, published on Sep 22, 2007

... persona). Anyway, the first time I walked into the gift emporium called Dorothy's Surrender, was to kill time whilst awaiting the first of many a futile blind, (or rather, Internet, ugh!) dates. I was set to meet Bachelor Number I-Lost-Track for lunch at the neighboring French Quarter Market Restaurant. (The two businesses are housed under one roof, along with a number of others, in what can only described as a Disney-esque West Coast approximation of its infamous namesake in New Orleans). Upon entry, the entire market place practically screams "Tackeeeeeeeee", but in all fairness, the... (more)

Kill Cancellation Fees!

By Tina Dupuy, published on Sep 12, 2007

Lets say you went to a restaurant. It’s your local place. You go there. The food is mediocre. The service is horrible. The wait time is ridiculous. The employees are incompetent. When you request to speak to a manager, they say they‘ll get back to you. Weeks pass with no response. No one cares about your grievances. You really hate your experience there - you find it unbearable. You muster up some self-esteem and you swear that you deserve to be treated better. You promise you will never go back. Ever. But in order to go to a new restaurant - you must pay $200 to the first. Now that all... (more)

In the Dog house.

By wolviela, published on Sep 7, 2007

...and animal, especially an animal that is supposed to be revered for its work. Personally, animals have much better work ethics than people, and generally smarter. Don't those canine units have cages were you could leave the window down? Wouldn't you at least tie the dog up outside the restaurant with a bowl of water? That officer should have the same treatment put on him. However he is being charged with animal cruelty. Meanwhile, those officers who are in charge of K9 units should learn a hard lesson from this. Be kind to your animal and it will be kind to you, after all they... (more)
