Sonali Indian Cuisine, new in Sunnyside!

Linda: I agree with you 100% on all of your observations.

Curry Point has Sonali beat in my opinion. Faster delivery too. I just wish they were open as late as Sonali.

Marabella is good. But it's not mind blowing enough to consider it the "best" of anything. I would prefer Skillman's more, but even that place isn't much home to write about.

Never order pho at a Korean place. If anyone is down for that, they might as well order sushi from a Chinese takeout joint :)

CURRY POINT[new sunnyside]

This was a recent price change over the last couple of months. It's annoying they didn't do a better job of communicating that with everyone else. I do like their Samosas though, a bit different.

such thing as hashbrowns in NYC?

Most people out east think of McDonalds Hashbrowns: http://hamburgglobetrotter.files.word...

Though the rest of the country is thinking this: http://sociopathways.files.wordpress....

such thing as hashbrowns in NYC?

What's really interesting is that they may be listed as hashbrowns but served as something else (most likely homefries). It's weird how many businesses serve breakfast potatoes and will call it hashbrowns.

Nonetheless, here is an updated list of places that serve Hashbrowns in NYC.

Market Diner (11th btwn 43rd and 44th)
Waverly (Avenue of the Americas & Waverly Pl) http://www.chow.com/restaurants/32778...
Stop Inn (61st & Roosevelt Ave in Woodside Queens) http://www.chow.com/restaurants/22373... < -- my favorite for now

Flushing Mall (39th Ave.) Updates or Reviews?

Now that it's been a couple of years and with the addition of Xian's Famous Foods (西安名吃 - Xi An Ming Chi), does anyone know the updated lineup at Flushing Mall?

Surely some stalls are no longer around. I haven't heard about (水霸) Shui Ba aka S&C Food Beverage in awhile.

new izakaya opening in k-town

I was pleasantly surprised at the place - though most of the folks there were not Japanese clientele (but rather Korean) the food turned out to be pretty good. Prices in this part of town are always going to be a little more steeper than the village of course, but for the price it's considered quality. I could see myself for repeat visits easily, especially if I'm not in the mood to head down to the east village.

Brussels (Woluwe-Saint-Lambert) Recommendations

Hanging out in Brussels right now and haven't seen too many recommendations or posts about various areas. Anyone out there that can jumpstart this thread?

I recently ate at Vietnamese place (Vietnamien) on Rue de George Henri. Seems to be one of the few places that one can score a decnet meal under 5 Euros around here. Not looking for anything super cheap, just super good.

If it's under 23rd, then look no further than Waverly Restaurant on Waverly & 6th. Amazing!

Late Night Eats

We walked quite a bit. Being from NYC, that says a lot I think. I should've been more clear in noting that I was walking with 16 people at the time and we were trying to keep things minimal and convenient.

I did check a map (Google Local) and even Yelped my way around (Yelp.com). In fact, GoogleMaps was actively tracking our distance throughout the entire trip (thank you PDA phones!) However, I did want to get a native's / local's take on what made for good late night food in the area.

Sexy Diner Food

So a group of 12 guys and I walk into Les Princesses as a surprise for our bachelor who was floored. The place looked super seedy from the outside, but to our surprise there were all sorts of people hanging out inside enjoying their breakfast. What kind of people exactly? Old creepy men, families with baby children, male and female couples, and of course, us rowdy bunch of men.

But onto the food. It was cheap ... no more than $5-6 per plate and like most Montreal businesses they split the bill for us which is so great. The food was not mind blowing, but for breakfast / diner fare that is less than $7 it was pretty decent. The home fries were a little dry, but the omelettes were real solid. Pretentious foodies need not apply, but let it be known their breakfast platters are at the very least edible and good for inexpensive food.

Guide to Woodside

How bad are we talking here for Mount Kailash? I heard they've now cranked up the Himalayan / Nepalese specialties ... I'd like to see it to believe it.

New Chinatown Restaurant: Dun Huang Seafood

Yes! I had spoken with someone and was told this place opened on May 8th. They are open for delivery, Dim Sum till 4PM, and Cantonese / Seafood dinners at night.

Sexy Diner Food

Actually, it was a serious question about the food. I am not expecting haute cuisine or anything, but wanted to know the quality as opposed to the gimmick (which is painfully obvious).

Though I'm not planning the party, I thought I would gauge to CW savy for those who are familiar with these establishments. It's not your average topic, but I certainly care enough about the food to ask.

I agree with Maximilien from what I've seen so far from other sites. I will have to go to one eventually, I figured at least I could be semi-in the know when it came to the menu.

Sexy Diner Food

I have heard of the "naughty" diners all along the east side (http://www.montrealmirror.com/ARCHIVE...), has any here actually eaten there?

I'm aware of all the nudity and all, but which food is actually good? Going there with a bachelor party group.

Chez Lidia, Les Courtisanes, and Les Princesses Super Sexy seem to be the ones in contention. I've read from a previous Bachelor Party thread that Les Courtisanes closed.

Thanks for the replies everyone.

Porker: damn good call on the Montreal Chinatown. I can't believe it's that close to our hotel. Impressive.

Carswell: I've been to L'Express and enjoyed it immensely. I wonder if my guests and I will be willing to head that far.

Souschef: That sounds nice too. I am certain the consensus of the group is something that's unique to Montreal, but I suppose after midnight beggers can't be choosers.

I'll be staying at the Delta Montreal tomorrow night and will be getting late. Any recommendations for any late night dining within walking (1 Kil) distance?

He's right. I was just curious since I'll be bringing a bachelor party out that way as well. The idea itself sounds fantastic.

Portland Buffets (All You Can Eat)

I have not been to London Grill just yet, but it sounds fantastic and the reviews seem to be consistent in that the food is fantastic, the dining is upscale, and the prices are a bit much. I am curious to know how many brunch buffets there are out there. In general, I think a majority of the buffets are well-hidden throughout Portland.

Portland Buffets (All You Can Eat)

The last two times I went, it was not as impressive as some other places I've been. I'm supportive of it regardless since Portland needs many more Indian places.

Portland Buffets (All You Can Eat)

Any recommendations for some great all you can eat places in Portland? Its been awhile since anyone has dived into this topic much. There are many notable places that range from brunch to sushi to pure crap. Among the places that come to mind:

Todai (sometimes good, often times crap)
Indian Restaurants (like Swagat)
Chinese Restaurants (Dime A Dozen)
Shenanigans on Willamette
Salty's on the Columbia River

Anything good come up from the last few years? Looking for more brunch places that are similar (but hopefully better) than Salty's or Shenanigans.

hashbrowns

Nathan: I agree with you wholeheartedly. Waffle House Hashbrowns are wonderful, especially the "Triple" order with all the fixins. Just delicious.

hashbrowns

Erikka: After much disappointment and heartache, I was finally able to identify a few places (other than steakhouses) that actually carry the shredded potato wonder that we're looking for.

Foley's Fish House (Manhattan - 47th/7th)
Elephant & Castle (Manhattan - Greenwich Ave / 7th Ave)
Village Delight (Manhattan - Grove / Christopher)
The Bagel Store (Brooklyn - 247 Bedford Ave)
Brooklyn Label (Brooklyn - 180 Franklin St- At Java St)

Hope this helps! Enjoy!

Where To Buy Huge Portion Of Yang Chow Fried Rice?

I know the title is a little ambiguous, however, I assure you I'm totally serious.

Tomorrow I'm going to a potluck where a variety of Asian dishes are being served. I've been assigned to bring a load of Yang Chow fried rice enough to feed 25 people. Since my stove is broken, I am probably going to buy the fried rice, however, I don't want to have to purchase 6-7 orders of it if a restaurant out there can specially make a heap of it in one setting. Catering is a little unnecessary, however, does anyone know of a Manhattan Chinatown restaurant that might be able to accomodate?

Thanks in advance!
