Trader Joe's Wine Recs?

i just took the last bottle of chariot gypsy from my local LA TJs. i'd agree that it's really good for the price(although i dont have much experience). it tastes good.

Best Pizza in Orange County?

glad you gave it another try. btw i prefer the stuffed pizza over the standard deep dish there.

also i have better luck with toppings with less water in them

Fresh Tuna off the boat

is this a commercial fishing boat or a sportfishing boat?

do you know how they handle the fish after catching it? Are they just left out? Refrigerated salt water tank? Immediately bled out? flash frozen?

Best Korean Restaurants in K-Town

dunno if i'd call it the best but it's my favorite so far out of all the ones i've tried.

beul dae po - my fav 16.99 all you can eat kbbq place.
very smokey, good service, constantly replaced wire-style grill, wahng galbi(the big boned galbi that comes out in a long strip). huge variety of meats including instestines if that's your thing.

Demeyere vs Wolfgang Puck cookware

i'm pretty sure the new puck tri-ply on costco is completely different from what you bought a few years ago from HSN.

costco has that great return policy too.

Demeyere vs Wolfgang Puck cookware

costco has a new induction ready tri-ply wolfgang puck spago set.

http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product....

179 bucks. looks nice. i missed out on the old kirkland/tramontina tri ply set a while back, im strongly considering this set.

Fruit stands along the 91?

exit the 91 on lakeview head north on lakeview(left). Go up about half a mile and past the train tracks there is a strawberry stand on the right. Its a manasero farms or something.

REVIEW: Maki-Zushi, Tustin

last time i ordered monkfish liver, i was told by a sushi chef that they are currently not in season and it is a bit dry. this was somewhere else though.

Sushi - What are you ordering?

well i spent 90 buck per person after tax and tip. that included the sushi, one green tea ice cream order of 4 kumamoto and 3 large kirin beers(180 total for both of us).

when he started off the meal with the kama toro, he didnt mention what it was at all. if i didnt ask him later, i dont think i would have really even known. i just assumed that it couldnt be kama toro. when i asked him he told me that it was and then i asked for another piece. :)

kin-san tells me that he usually gets his fresh fish on thur or friday. i went on saturday and i got the first slice off his slab.
