McRib: will it ever return, now that McD's is revamping its 'healthy image?

I just need to add my name to the list of people who enjoy a McRib and are not affraid to admit it. Sure, I'll take some fancy grub any day, but I am not such a foodie snob to ignore the brilliance that is the McRib. Hell...I'll even go on record and say that I often love a well executed Big Mac. Its not a burger, but its a hell of a sandwich when made 'just right' ;-)

"Sugar" coke in LA

All of the ones I have purchased from Costco recently have said only 'sugar'...none of them have HFCS listed anywhere. I am a huge Coke fan and was raised on sugar coke from glass bottles...every one of the Coke's I have purchased from Costco has for sure been 'the real thing'.

"Sugar" coke in LA

Same here, but typically at $1.50-$2.00 a bottle, Costco is selling a case for $18...a pretty decent deal if you really like the stuff.

Looking for Authentic Belgian Food

Not to get off-topic...but what is authentic Belgian food? I have a few ideas but have never really had it broken down by an authority on the subject. Anyone care to provide a Belgian food primer?

Sure like Belgian beer.....foods gotta be good too, right?

"Sugar" coke in LA

Costco seems to be selling Mexican 'sugar' coke in 16oz bottles at all of its locations right now. The one in Tustin and in Fountain Valley both have it, as does one in Denver that a co-worker of mine happened to check. If you like Coke this stuff is like gold. Rates right up there with "Dublin" Dr. Pepper which is my main cane sugar delivery method ;-)

philly cheesesteak!

'John's Philly Grille' on Beach in Huntington Beach makes a great cheesesteak....if you are in the OC area its highly recommended. This is the best location they have, the others are not as good. It destroys 'Philly's Best' on Brookhurst IMO...no comparison.

Let's talk about Tortas

I love a good Torta. For me, the ingredients can vary, but they must have the proper bread. A local Mex joint makes a pork Torta that is just about perfect. My current meal of choice ;-)

Review: Flight Bistro and Social Lounge - Huntington Beach

You are dead on about the location, I live right around the corner from there (have for over 20 years) and the longest I have ever seen a restaurant stay in business at that location is just about 6 months. Some did not last a month. If you like it, get your fill now, the odds are not in their favor. Its just about the worst location in HB...if you drive past it you cant get back to it easily..hard to see..etc.
