Can anyone beat a Publix Sub?

There's a small hole in the wall place in Alamonte Springs on 436 called Lawless that makes a tasty sub. They bake their own bread and it's at least as good as, if not better, than Publix. I grew up in Philly and appreciate good hoagies and cheesesteaks on good bread. It's in the same center as The Battery Store.

Are there any not overly pricey seafood restaurants in Orlando area?

32779 We went to High Tide Harry's tonight which is usually a favorite. For the second time since we've been coming here, the quality seems to be going down. The baked potato tasted reheated and the crab legs were almost "off." Any other suggestions?

Does anyone know what kind of fish is used in jewish-style fried splitfish or chaback?

I found an article written by a Russian interpreter who said the Cossack name for what he called a Rudd fish was chebak. Now what kind of fish is that in English? From what I could find, in American they're about the size of Shiners and threaten our native fish. The fish I knew were definitely bigger than shiners!

What to eat with cottage cheese?

My very favorite kind is Friendship Pot Cheese style. It's almost impossible to find here in the Orlando area. Every once in awhile Publix will special order for me.

I'm not sure. I never saw whole fish, just the slice. I do think it was a Russian fish because they only info I found online said it came from a Russian river.

What to eat with cottage cheese?

This is an old Weight Watchers' trick. Forty some years ago, the diet plan did not allow any fat (mayonaise) so they used cottage cheese.

No, it wasn't a chub or a smoked fish. It was a crosswise section of a gray translucent fleshed fish. It was very salty, but delicious fried with onions in butter. Chaback is a transliteration. It could be chibok, chibock, chbok...I don't know. Thanks for your reply.

Chef Basket?

My mother-in-law gave me one of these about 42 years ago when I was first married. She bought it for a few dollars at the supermarket. I did use it in a big pot of oil to deep fry. Don't remember much else about it except that it rusted fairly quickly. I think the TV price is way too high!

When I was growing up in Philadelphia, my dad would make a fried splitfish or chaback (not sure of spelling) with onions for Sunday breakfast. I haven't been able to find out what kind of fish was used so I can purchase it to fry at home in Orlando, FL. Does anyone know?

Why brine poultry and pork but not beef?

Kosher beef is rubbed with salt or soaked in brine. Weird things do not results.

Philly type cheesesteak

Where can you get a true Philly type cheesesteak in the Winter Park or Longwood area near Orlando. It must not be on a mushy roll.
