Custard Pie

Thanks for the suggestions. We usually picked up our pies at Marie Callendar's but with their closing I was at a loss. We thought of Chinatown but thought there were only the small tarts rather then a pie. Will look into the suggestions!

Custard Pie

I'm looking for a good custard pie preferably between San Mateo-Daly City if possible. Tried Nations but liked their banana cream pie better.

Thanks.

Moving to San Mateo - any recs on restos & markets?

Two Japanese markets are Suruki's on 4th and Takahashi's on Claremont/3rd which is smaller and has a Hawaiian slant.

There's an Amici's Pizza on 3rd in downtown San Mateo.

Fish Dumplings At Sun Chinese Restaurant in San Mateo

We came across Sun Chinese Restaurant on Monday when we were looking for a place to eat. The chow mein was okay but we loved the orange beef (there was lots of beef on the plate) and the pork with garlic sauce.

6 Qt. Mixer Recommendations

Thank you both for the Cuisinart suggestion - I didn't realize that Cuisinart made mixers - and the 7 qt. may be a good fit.

6 Qt. Mixer Recommendations

I'm looking for a 6 qt. mixer to use at church - I was going to look at the Kitchen Aid Professional one but one of the ladies feels that's its cumbersome in terms of pushing down
the lever and taking the bowl out, etc. (she owns a Kitchen Aid).

Are there any other suggestions for a mixer?

Thanks

cooking parties

Are you referring to the places where you put together meal ingredients then take them home and they're ready to go? I googled Dream Dinners in Belmont -

We loved our meal at French Laundry - haven't been successful in getting another reservation, tho.

Per Se or Jean-Georges

I now have a reservation for lunch on Saturday and dinner on Monday for Per Se. We might be able to afford to come back for awhile!!!

Per Se or Jean-Georges

This is our first visit to NYC in 30 years - we selected Per Se based on The French Laundry's reputation (and I actually found it easier to get a reservation at Per Se then FL). Sounds like both places would be good choices.

Per Se or Jean-Georges

Actually I have reservations at both but was thinking of canceling one - I know how hard it is to get into the French Laundry so decided to take the ressie and then decide what to do!

Per Se or Jean-Georges

We're going to visit New York City for a long weekend in June. I was wondering if Per Se or Jean-Georges is a better selection. I understand the food at both is excellent.

Thanks

5A5

We went to A5 during the soft opening and ordered the ribeye - it was very fatty and the knife they gave us didn't cut very well at all.

Starving for BBQ

Has anyone tried Gorilla Barbecue in Pacifica? It was featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives a couple of weeks ago.

CHALLENGE - Baking without an oven

Instead of the bricks, use charcoal brickets - each bricket is 40 degrees. I use a pie pan under the rack (held up by the soda cans) . Put whatever you want on the rack and put the box over - there should be a flap so the steam can escape. We've baked cakes in this - learned it in Girl Scouts.

Bravo Taqueria (Redwood City) - quite good!
