New Trader Joe's Yea/Nay Thread - 2nd Quarter 2011 [old]

I agree. I have a high tolerance for spicy food too. This green papaya salad has bits of it that is beyond hot, and it was pretty disgusting too. I want to like it so bad, I'm a green papaya salad lover, but I just cannot eat this. :(

Prima Taste Chili Crab Packet(urgent in search of)

Does anyone know where I can find this packet in the bay area. It comes in a box, and they usually sell it at Ranch 99 Foster city, but all out of stock. I need it for this weekend.

Restaurant.com question (use in either Shiok or Sumiya)

Anyone with trouble using the gift certs in these places? Also, I bought the certificates without specifying which restaurants, I'm a bit confused how to use these? Do i have to redeem them for a particular restaurant online first or can I just use these certificates printing them out?

Suggestions for my one day meal in Tokyo?

I've been to Tokyo many many times, I will only be going there for a short 2 day lay over (really just 1.5 days). My first night arrival will be around 8:30pm, by the time I get to shibuya (where my hotel is) will be 10:30 or so, so late night dinner will be great. I don't know if shibuya has any yata(street food stall?) near the station?

Things that I've tried in Japan that I love: Yakitori in a neighborhood near roppongi, i can't remember the english name, but it's a hole in the wall place. Umenohana (wonderful experience, got private room, so yummy), tonkatsu (one of those must go places, the name escaped me, it's in meguro. Sushi Dai in Tsukiji.
Motsunabe in ebisu.

I also tried Whale, I wasn't too thrilled about eating that, but my Japanese friend took me there as a surprised... long story...

I'm traveling alone, so some nabe places that require minimum 2 order I will not be able to go. Any suggestions?

Since I've been there many times and my limited time, I will only be staying in certain areas for photography/meals/shopping.

Will only venture out to tsukiji if I can get up early, since I've already been there, don't want to waste precious time.
Any suggestions welcome!!

$200 to spend, where to go?

My boss gave me a xmas present of $200 to spend with my significant other for dinner. If it goes over, I can pay out of pocket to cover.
I'm thinking of Gary Dankos, any other suggestions?
