Am I being too cheap? Splitting restaurant bill on family vacation

You cant worry about money when you go to Disney. It will ruin your trip if you think about it.

Unless someone is ordering very expensive things don't sweat it.
Pay your share and have fun.

Iconic CT foods

I was going to say hot dogs in general. A CT tradition IMHO.

things you put ketchup on

When I was a kid I used to like potato chips dipped in Ketchup.
My six year old daughter likes ketchup on her bagels!

Where to get Chinese takeout in Old Greenwich/Stamford/Norwalk?

I think Panda Garden's food is ten times better than Pearl East's ever was. You just have to get over the fact that it is a dingy, grimy take out joint. PG is cheap and the food is good. They will take requests as well.

Costco Frozen Shrimp (Bagged) from Vietnam

YEP. The ponds are so over populated that they need antibiotics. Its just nasty stuff IMHO.

Costco Frozen Shrimp (Bagged) from Vietnam

To me they are. To be fair I haven't had them in a few years but I found them to be pale and mushy with a very strange taste and texture. Nothing at all like the shrimp I get from my fish monger.

Costco Frozen Shrimp (Bagged) from Vietnam

For me its just the way they are farmed and the product that is ultimately sold-limp soggy shrimp that tastes funny.

California hound starting honeymoon in NYC...Need reqs please!

grand central oyster bar and have oysters and champagne (or martinis or wine) at the counter or the small center bar-avoid almost every thing else.

great jones cafe-classic village joint service cajun inspired food-try the blackened catfish

PJ clarkes in midtown for a beer and a burger

Definitely Katz's

Burp castle for a beer or two

These are places I often take out of towners for a taste of NYC

Costco Frozen Shrimp (Bagged) from Vietnam

I never said it was dangerous, just that I would not buy or eat them. I don't like the taste or the texture.

Those shrimp are fed lots of nasty things and they are raised in giant toilet bowls. Maybe there are some farms that are better than others but I visited three different ones and they were pretty much the same. Nasty.

Oyster Craze

Bingo
Even a novice could tell the difference between different types of oysters.

Oysters taste like where they were raised/farmed. The ultimate terroir if you will.

Famous foods from your region you find tasty and delicious.

I usually pick up a large pie and bring it home to westchester when I pass through Hartford-about 10 times a year. Same as it ever was!

CT home state:
In addition to the fried clams, hot dogs and new haven style pizza, I find myself missing Greek style pizza.

Like they serve at park lane pizza in west Hartford and at hope street pizza in Stamford. Really yummy.

How often do you drink at lunch during the work week?

I make up for it when work ends! :)

This was post. I live in the same town as the Clintons, although they are not around as much as they used to be.

This was at the local deli.

Adopted state: NYC and its suburbs. Pretty much the best of everything, but we need more Mexican and Vietnamese places!

Bill Clinton tried to cut me in line once. I said excuse me Mr. President but I was here first. He just kind of looked at me and said go ahead then.

2 large coffees to go please!

True story.

Anyway back to regularly scheduled programming.

Famous Regional Food you find embarrassing or disgusting?

That made me laugh out loud!

A (Partial) Defense of Omaha Steaks

Thanks, I should have clarified. I have no problem finding high quality steaks and beef, which I always buy fresh or dry aged. I'd be looking for pork and poultry.

A (Partial) Defense of Omaha Steaks

My company sends me an omaha gift every year at summertime.

Burgers and steaks are not very good-I tend to chop them up and use them in other dishes rather than as the main entree.

BUT-it is nice to have a dozen vacuum sealed pork chops and chicken breasts individually wrapped and ready to go. If you are a busy person that doesn't own a food saver it is very convenient. I am more like to cook a healthy meal for myself when I have them around. Otherwise, I end up ordering take out. Probably should see if I could order better quality meats somewhere else. Any suggestions?

And just tell the marketing department to leave you alone!
