Where to eat game, perhaps zebra, in Tanzania?

Will be travelling to Tanzania and would appreciate a recommendation to a restaurant serving local game, such as zebra.

Need Sushi help traveling with non-fish eater

Thanks much for all of the replies. Much appreciated.

The Culinary Ball & Chain has already gained notoriety during our travels through North and South America, Europe, Africa and Australia for her "picky" eating habits. You can imagine her delight when I informed her that her reputation as a culinary loser has now reached Asia. I also shared with her that the majority vote by the Chowhounds was that I dump her. She didn't seem amused.

Although dumping her is clearly the only rational choice, after investing over thirty years in this relationship, I'm inclined to pursue a compromise. The Kyubei suggestion sounds perfect, and I greatly appreciate it.

Need Sushi help traveling with non-fish eater

I will be traveling to Tokyo for the first time with my wife (aka Culinary Ball & Chain). She does not eat anything that ever swam in the ocean. I would very much like to experience a first class sushi meal. Can anyone recommend such a sushi restaurant that also offers cooked meat dishes?

Pinot Noirs in Australia

I greatly appreciate all the comments. We will be traveling to Sydney, Melbourne, along the Great Ocean Road, Adelaide, Kangaroo Island and to Heron Island.

Pinot Noirs in Australia

We will be making our first trip to Australia in a few weeks. We are particularly fond of pinot noirs, but are woefully uninformed with respect to those from Australia. Any recommendations for good pinots that we are likely to find on restaurant menus would be greatly appreciated.


Help! Although I am a devoted carnivore, I'll be hosting a group of eight equally devoted vegans for lunch. I need a recommendation for a pure vegan restaurant (no cross contamination) with table service that preferably accepts reservations. Westside or Hollywood area preferred.

Any help greatly appreciated.
