Dinner recommendations near Lex and 48th

I have an impromptu trip to NYC next week. My flight lands at 6pm and my hotel is near 48th and Lex. Thinking of sushi or Japanese izakaya style dinner? Any recommendations near my hotel?

I am definitely not a sushi maki kinda gal. Are there any good high quality sushi places nearby? Yasuda is closed for holidays... :(

I have a feeling I will be too tired to venture outside of the area after a day of travelling! Thanks!

Late Night Sunday Dinners in San Francisco - Any recommendations?

Taking an earlier flight would be nice, but ever since I started travelling for work, I have discovered that weekends are very precious! But with Robert's and your recommendations should be a good start. Then when I get to the end of the list, I'll start from the top again! :D

Late Night Sunday Dinners in San Francisco - Any recommendations?

Hi there! I fly into SFO from Chicago every Sunday, and usually get to my hotel around 10 pm. I am looking for some choices for dinner that late on a Sunday night! I have tried Katana-ya, and intend on trying Ryoko's this Sunday. Any recommendations would be appreciated! My hotel is near Embacadero Plaza (FiDi?), but I am open to any places that is a short cab ride away!

Thanks!

Shanghai: Dim Sum Recs? Specifically Liu Sa Bao

I will be spending a few days in Shanghai, and have been missing these baos! In Cantonese it's Lau Sa Pau. The filling is a molten egg yolk... runny and yummy!

If anyone has a suggestion on where to go for these bao in Shanghai, I would greatly appreciated!

Looking for great sushi near Diamond Bar.

Hmm... maybe I should expand my area then. I have 3 lunches open... maybe I should venture over to Sushi zo, Tama and Kiroko to try their lunch omakases? Would that even be worth it? Chicago has ok sushi, but nothing like LA! Does anyone know if they will do a dinner omakase at lunch? I am a big eater! =)

Looking for great sushi near Diamond Bar.

Sorry! I know there are many posts on sushi in LA, but I am not too familar with the neighbourhoods! I am looking for amazing sushi, preferably for lunch. I have read the posts on Sushi Zo, and I am tempted to try it, but it's 40 minutes away! Is it really worth it? Or is there some other place that is just as good and closer? Thoughts? Comments?

Looking for Mango Mochi and Bak Kwa

Oops... maybe I should have been more descriptive... I am not looking for mango mochi ice cream. This mango mochi is a piece of fresh mango, wrapped in the mochi flour with or without coconut on the outside.

I found a post about the Phoenix Bakery, but it was from a few years back! Thanks for confirming, WHills!

Looking for Mango Mochi and Bak Kwa

Hi there! Chicago Chowhound here... I am flying into SNA next weekend, and have been salivating over stories of mango mochi! So far all I have heard is that they have it at Hui Lau Shan in San Fran!

So, please help an out-of-towner out, please? Where can I get mango mochi?

And also, since I am from Singapore and have not been back in ages.... There has to be somewhere I can get bak kwa (barbecued pork jerky)! Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
