Taipei Beef Noodles vs. HK Beef Brisket Noodle

Lin Tung Fong !!!

Looking for Old School Taiwanese in Taipei .

Thanks !
I discovered Mei Guan Yuan in Ximending the other day .
Opened in 1946 they serve Japanese/Taiwanese .
Looks like a Taiwanese version of a Hong Kong Cha Chaan Teng .

Taipei Beef Noodles vs. HK Beef Brisket Noodle

... it's worth going to Sister Wah if you haven't been .
Love Mak's for the broth (various locations) ; it's my favorite wonton shop . I'll add it to the list for their beef brisket .
Actually don't recall if Kau Kee was clear ; maybe .

Taipei Beef Noodles vs. HK Beef Brisket Noodle

I didn't go to that many places but I liked Sister Wah and Kau Kee .

At Kau Kee I ordered the Special but they were already sold out so I had the regular .

Which is your favorite ?

Best Khao Soi in Chiang Mai?

What did you think of Lampang Lert Rot ?

Best Khao Soi in Chiang Mai?

I revisited both Khao Soi Lam Duan Fah Ham and Khao Soi Samerjai ; wasn't even close .
Much prefered Samerjai in every way but each place has it's fans .
I also went to Khao Soi Islam which is said to be closer to the original version . It was actually the only bowl I've had that I didn't really enjoy .

Best Khao Soi in Chiang Mai?

Have tried many and have yet to have a bad bowl ...
I thought Khao Soi Lam Duan Fah Ham had the best soup/broth , but Khao Soi Samerjai had the best dry noodles
while Khao Soi Prince had the best wet noodles , ect ...
Other good bowls at Khao Soi Khun Yai , and Lampang Lert Rot

high end for dining alone in SF ?

Kappa has a short well curated sake list .
Had the omakase at Ino where it was all good ; no pieces in particular were better than others .

high end for dining alone in SF ?

Thanks !
I went to Ino Sushi my first night here .
Yes ; this is the real thing .
Reminds me of an old time sushi shop you would find on a side street in the Ningyocho section of Tokyo .
Actually I was going to go to Kiss but they are on vacation till the 16th of Oct .
The local sitting next to me said she thought Ino was better than Kiss .
2nd night I went to Yuzuki .
Best tofu I ever had !

I'll look into the other places .

high end for dining alone in SF ?

I went to Kappa tonight .
Having been in Japan for only 2 months and basing on that I thought the food was not that good .
I loved the couple running the restaurant , and loved the service , and respect the food traditional they are keeping alive
but the execution is just not there ,
There were moments , and flashes , but overall , no .

high end for dining alone in SF ?

Thanks ; I was already looking at Namu Gaji .
I'll check out the others .

high end for dining alone in SF ?

Thanks ; price no object .
I prefer Asian food in general and all Japanese cuisines specifically , so Kappa is appealing .
But I'm looking for something more unique to SF .
And I don't really enjoy tweezer food .

Looking for high-end wine bar for by the glass in SF ?

Thanks .
I love French wines , but Since I'm visiting , (from NYC) ,
I think I'll go to Press Club as they feature California wines .
Or any other suggested places for California wines .

high end for dining alone in SF ?

high end , any cuisine
could be at bar , or tasting counter , or just comfortable place for dining alone
Thank You
