Hip place, Nice Athmosphere, good & affordable food

Try Sapa or Kittichai...real hip, not crazy expensive.

Soft-Shell Crab in NYC (is the season over?)

I had some very good tapioca-encrusted soft-shell crab at Tabla the other night. I highly recommend it.

Chicken sashimi

This is just a gut feeling, but I don't think raw chicken is such a good idea..

Eek! Only 2 nights in Barcelona...where must we dine?

We loved Cal Pep (do it even if you have to sit at the bar) and Quatre Gats (where Picasso used to hang out and eat)

Who does the best soup dumplings?

It's called Mandoo Soup. And the dumpling dough is tasty, not just doughy. And the beef is peppery and oniony and spicy. Just love it...you gotta try it!!

So, what is the appropriate response to "Ewww!!!" anyway?

I would just bring a fishy salmon head (cooked or raw...up to you..)to work the next day and stick it in her handbag when she wasn't looking..eeewwwwwwww!!!

Favorite Movies About Food?

9 1/2 weeks. No contest.

What to make with leftover dark rum?

Make a Goombay Smash...add Malibu Rum, Pineapple Juice, Orange Juice (and grenadine if you like). Some recipes add a dash apricot brandy, although I've never tried it that way. The stuff will get you smashed!!

rescue the pear brandy ...

Either pour it into a nice sweet champagne and serve with poached (or canned) pear wedge. Or try it with Godiva Chocolate Liqueur with lots of ice. Good stuff!

Anyone tried Lichido?

I've tried both Lichido and Soho and the two are not comparable. Soho tastes bitter and harsh and after-tasty. Lichido is rich and aromatic, and leaves no aftertaste. It just goes down smooth. And I agree it's best mixed with other liquors to dilute it and increase its alcohol content, but my wife and sister drink it on the rocks and love it as is.

Who does the best soup dumplings?

I love the soup dumplings at Kum Gang San in the Garment District. It's Korean, though, not Chinese. But those dumplings are divine.

Best French Fries currently?

Pommes Frites, of course. And at Cafe de Bruxelles, a very good Belgian restaurant.
