Rumors of authentic Chinese in Carrboro

I haven't been to Gourmet Palace, but a friend of mine (a former chef) did some business for them when they opened and said the food was pretty bad.

I haven't been to this place yet, but Red Palace in Raleigh is supposed to be excellent and authentic.

Nagging Unsanitary Cooks

Handwashing is key. As is thorough washing and rinsing of kitchen gear, plates, cutlery etc. My dish towels get one rotation through a meal then they go in the washer. When I cook, I have one dedicated towel for wiping my hands only. I use paper towels for clean ups. Half strength bleach will go a long way in cleaning up surfaces. It's effective for knocking out norovirus- a major foodborne bug.

I have to admit, I have a problem with eating where cats have been around. Cat hair is just insidious and the thought of it getting in food really grosses me out. Of course this is coming from someone who lets her dog "pre-rinse" plates! ;)

BBQ DC BEST??

Got to agree with this.

Restaurant advice in downtown Raleigh

Good bar food and happy hour atmosphere- Raleigh Times
Breakfast - Big Ed's
Dinner- J. Betski's, Duck and Dumpling
Avoid- Glenwoood South...all of it
Most overrated- The Pit...mediocre BBQ, overpriced and geared toward visitors and those not intimately familiar with the real ENC BBQ experience.
Meh- 18 Seaboard. Overpriced and J. Betskis is right there.
Also meh- Red Room. I wasn't thrilled with the food, but if they still have 1/2 priced tapas on Monday night it's sort of worth it to go.

Been there- it's the real deal for ribs and good sides. Follow the blue smoke.
