This place does pork with lettuce, tomato, and a creamy curry sauce. I bet they would leave the curry out if that isn't your thing.

A full English breakfast and a pint to start the day is wonderful.

How I Wrote an Entire Book on Banh Mi

How much would you use in a typical recipe? It is something that you add to flour...right? It is not a flour replacement IIRC.

In Mt. Angel, Oregon, about an hour South of PDX, there is a German restaurant that does a schnitzel sandwich that is a good stand in.

Chowhound now allowing advertising posts?

I tried to find the thread but it appears to have been deleted.

Anyway...longtime chowhound poster starts a post about pasta rocks and how ridiculous of a concept they are. Representative from Pasta Rocks chimes in defending her product and is tarred and feathered then paraded through town as a clown. The whole thing was pretty comical.

How many exceptions are there? Chefj just told me that the banh mi thread was an exception and now you are telling me the Indian girl is THE exception.

If they're all exceptions then isn't there really no rule?

At some point the sun will explode killing life on Earth so it is really all pretty inconsequential. Just something to think about it.

I had not seen the rogue traveling tuna salesman. That is clearly out of bounds...but a bit comical.

There was an "ad" over on the LA board where a young lady had started a business teaching people how to make Indian food. Now, I'm not in LA but I have always wanted to make Indian food at home. If she were in my area I would totally hit her up. I thought the post was appropriate and well placed but some people absolutely lost their minds over it. Really? If you don't like it just move on.

I think the banh mi thread that you have been so active in is a pretty quality discussion. Ms. Nguyen was not able to post that sort of content under the old rules. I'd say its a marked improvement.

There are enough people who don't give a rip about the changes that any loss of content will be inconsequential.

None whatsoever. That is my entire point. Stop whining about it and leave already.

Asian Food in Salem, OR

I went to Saigon Restaurant yesterday and got a banh mi. I got the curry chicken banh mi and it had way too much curry sauce on it, it was very messy. It was good but next time I will try the roast pork.

Yeah, there was way too much curry sauce on the chicken. I expected it to be more like a marinade but this was very saucy.

Like I said though, my options are limited so I will try them again. I will just get the roast pork or grilled chicken next time.

I do intend on getting this book though. It looks great.

I just found a banh mi sandwich at Saigon Restaurant in Salem, OR. I got the chicken curry banh mi which was really messy. Next time I will order the roast pork. But, it is easily the best banh mi sandwich I have had in Salem.

Eat at Alboe - a little bit of everything: in OC, California

I like Indian food. Come to Salem, OR.

Buypartisan app: for shoppers who care about the politics behind brands they use

I just downloaded the app for shits and giggles but I can't imagine busting that thing out every time I was about to spend $1.75 on a beverage.

Proper wine service - Opening bottle away from the table?

This is exactly how they did it at Charlie Palmer Steak in Las Vegas.
