Khao Soi at Noodle Tramp (Santa Ana)

The problem with Noodle Tramp's khao soi broth is that there's too much coconut milk used, too sweet. No homemade nam prik provided on the side for khao soi, no sour green mustard pickle (a lame red cabbage was substituted). I had a bowl when I went to their pre-grand opening event, hopefully it has improved by now.

I haven't had khao soi at Renu but will try it soon. Is the one at Lotus of Siam garbage?

Cha Chaan Teng Recs in WSGV?

Younique food is a grease-bomb, avoid.

JJ has horrible food made for drunk people, some of their food is actually cooked by non-Chinese chefs

Henry's is decent, management has some connection to Tasty Garden.

I would suggest Seafood Village if you want traditional Guangdong food unless you are sticking to the Chinese-Western fusion fare.

Khao Soi at Noodle Tramp (Santa Ana)

Has anyone had the khao soi at Noodle Tramp in Santa Ana? Any thoughts about it?

Noodle Tramp is a food stall inside the 4th Street Market, and has been drawing a lot of attention from media. Supposedly the owner has never been to Chiang Mai before but was inspired by the khao soi he had at Lotus of Siam in Vegas.

I've had it once and want to see what people think about it.

Where to find in SGV a bowl of brisket noodle soup like HK's Kau Kee?

Luscious Dumplings is the closest thin cut brisket to Hong Kong-style

Indian buffet, but for dinner

Dosa Place (Tustin) and Turmeric Buffet (Artesia) have dinner buffets but they are both horrible. The food is just reheated for days...

HK style desserts

HK Kitchen made excellent "ginger juice crash milk" but they closed 2 years ago.

Phoenix desserts are way too sweet compared to homestyle version, but it's the best in town for variety.

Tasty Garden does dish out the best egg waffle in LA but it costs a ridiculous $5.00 for one piece, and there isn't enough egg flavor.

Singapore Leaf Gone Already?

Just received confirmation from insider sources - Henry's Cuisine will be open next week, they will serve Asian fusion (Malaysian, Thai, Vietnamese, Sichuan, Cantonese). Chinese owned. Should be very interesting, will report after trying it out.

Best Indian Food in Orange County

Rasoi Curry Pointe in Tustin is the best all-around Indian restaurant in the OC. They blend their own spices and don't use spice packets. The prices are also the lowest in town, it's a family owned shop. The owners are from Hyderabad

Tokyo Ramen - Monterey Park

If you eat there often, I can recommend a website that sells gift certificates for tokyo ramen $7 for $10. shipping is free if you order 4 or more. Send me a message if you're interested.

Alhambra: D&F Seafood going into old Blue Ocean Seafood building

I think D&F used to be the name of the BBQ section next to Blue Ocean. Will D&F now serve dim sum?

One day Toronto eating trip

Thank you everyone for the suggestions, they are well taken. I suddenly had a few cravings and if anyone can recommend a few places in the following categories, that would help my planning.

1. all you can eat sushi
2. hong kong style cafe
3. coffeeshop that roasts beans on-site
4. poutine

One day Toronto eating trip

afong56, thank you. i do enjoy cantonese food, particularly hk style cafes. king's noodle and house of gourmet are in the downtown area where i am staying and they look like ideal places to visit. however, i have heard the cantonese food in markham/scarborough is far superior to those in downtown TO. is there a remarkable difference in the quality/authenticity? if there is, i may consider taking the train out to those cities.

your ideas about slm and kensington are well taken, i will eat my way through those markets. excited about getting my mitts on a montreal bagel.

los angeles knows nothing about poutine so far. if i find them to be tasty, i may adopt the dish into one of our night markets.

Any recommendations for dim sum or breakfast in Chinatown area?

One day Toronto eating trip

i know i can't cover every type of cuisine in a day, was just looking for a few ideas of what people in toronto call good food. i am coming from LA, a city where it is very easy to suggest a list of 10-15 places where people should eat when they come visit

One day Toronto eating trip

looking forward to devouring a peameal bacon sandwich :)

also bookmarked buster sea cove, looks great.

i am aware of the outstanding chinese food in markham/richmond hill area. unfortunately i won't have a car. i am limited to public transportation. is it worth taking public transportation from downtown TO to where the good chinese restaurants are? if Chinese food near downtown is decent, then i won't make the extra trip.

One day Toronto eating trip

My trip will be Saturday afternoon until Sunday morning, so I'll visit SLM Saturday and Kensington Sunday

Thank you! I will try your suggestions.

One day Toronto eating trip

i am looking for chinese, italian, canadian, french.

i am from los angeles, it is very easy to name the top 3 restaurants for nearly every category of cuisine in LA. i hope that is also possible for toronto.

no budget or dietary restrictions.

AYCE sushi restaurant in LA

I am looking for a good AYCE sushi restaurant in LA that serves sushi/nigiri/sashimi.

Any recommendations? I have been to Midori but it gets too crowded and the 1 hour limit is too harsh.

I will have an entire Saturday and Sunday morning after a business trip to eat everything Toronto has to offer.

Any suggestions on unique or outstanding food around downtown Toronto? There's not much sightseeing in Toronto so I will be going around just eating all day. Thanks!
