Shishito peppers--where else to try them

I had Shishito peppers at Asian Ya in West-La. The table next to me had them on their table. It was stir fried in a garlic sauce. The smell from the other table was so good that I had to order it for myself. It tasted as good as it smelled. Don't forget to get the tan tan mien.

Recommended Napa/Yountville wineries

Farmstead is great. I love the trout with the crispy skin. I highly recommend Farmstead.I wasn't impress with Ad Hoc. I really enjoyed the wine from Charles Krug on Main st. It just down the street from Farmstead.

Pho-Licious - Delicious Pho in Arcadia

I went there twice. The broth was too salty both times. The meat was real good. Good for Arcadia but not for Sgv.

Chuen Hing -- another Chiu Chow option in SGV

Kim Kee's satay sauce is different. It is a lot darker. Kinda like X.o sauce and taiwanesse bbq sauce..My aunt's satay sauce is similar to Kim kee's satay sauce.It is very rich so I suggest to get it with egg noodle or you can get it half egg amd half rice noodle. I love ordering half and half. I feel so chinese.

Chuen Hing -- another Chiu Chow option in SGV

I am chui chow. When my grandpa was around we use to go to 888.One of my favorite is a shrimp cake with chestnuts and wrap in beancurd. The shrimp cake is deep fried and serve with a sweet sauce.
Another chui chow dish I like is from Kim kee. It is the spicy beef satay noodle. Squeeze a litle lime and delicous.Chui chow is suppose to be known for their satay. It is totally different from thai satay.

I'm sorry you don't like the banh xeo at Banh Cuon Tay ho.I think i was the one that suggest it. Opps my bad.i'm just so impress with the crispy skin.Too much oil is always the problem. If you talk to vietnamese people they will tell you the best banh xeo is homemade. i just invite myself over everytime my friends mom makes banh xeo. Let me know when you find the perfect banh xeo. I can eat about three at one sitting.

Question from mikeinla : When you're given the hollow rice noodle portions, do people generally fill that with the cucumber slices, shrimp toast, bean sprouts, etc., and then dip and eat?

I just pour the fish top over the noodle and eat it like the vermicill dishes.You don't wrap banh cuon. It's more like a salad. Just be a lil nosy and look at the other patrons

The best banh xeo is at ban coun tay ho in san gabriel. It is crispy and not to oily. I find that most restaurant banh xeo is oily.Banh Xeo is one of my favorite dish. Do not go to ban xeo quan in rosemead. It is one of my worst vietnamese meal. Don't forget to get the rice noodle from ban cuon tay ho.
