Boynton Beach Thai

I've done a lot of reading on here for some recommendations while I am visiting the area. I've got a nice list of places to visit. However, I'd love a good Thai place. Particularly for some Tom Yum. We don't have any really good Thai where I live so I depend on any trips that I take to fulfill my cravings. I will have a car, so I can leave the area.

Temperature of sushi rolls

I don't mean just the rice but the fillings also. Room temp rice but cool fillings is how I prefer it. Two different places, a few months apart made me wonder if this is normal now.

Temperature of sushi rolls

The last two places that I've had sushi rolls, served them at room temperature. What is the traditional temperature supposed to be? I'm used to it being on the cool side. Is room temp a new trend? I don't eat a lot of sushi, probably 3-5 times a year but I've been eating it for years and this is throwing me off.

Cobb Gallaria recs

I want to thank everyone for their help. I ended up eating at lee's bakery for lunch on Friday, Gu's on Saturday and lee's again in Sunday.

Yeah, after looking at the recs from SJMDownunder the food truck park is now a very distant plan b. Thanks for the blog info. I've been looking for something like that to read but the closest that I found hadn't been updated in 4 years.

Oh, believe me, I'm not. I don't know the area but was hoping that something might be close especially for lunch so that I wouldn't be gone for too long from the show. I'm thinking that I'll order some extra food at the places I try and carry it with me to the show to eat and not even have to leave at all.

I checked out the places you recommended on Buford hwy and they look really good. Are there any Thai places on Buford that you like?

I'll be in Atl June 6,7,8 for Blade Show at the Cobb Galleria. My hotel is on Franklin Road SE in Marietta and I'll have a car. I really want to try a Banh mi while I am in town and also go to the food truck park. A good pizza would be nice too. Any recommendations for the areas I'll be in? What should I try at the food truck park? Thanks.

Montgomery Pizza and Wings

We're going to be in Montgomery on the night of the Super Bowl. We don't want to go out, just sit in the hotel and watch the game. Where is a good place to pick up some pizza and wings? Not sure of the hotel yet but I do know that we'll be coming from the area of Garrett Coliseum.

Sands Expo

We did end up eating at Grimaldi's. I've never had the NY version but this was pretty good. Didn't really care too much for the regular sauce pizza but the pesto was great.

Sands Expo

We'll be at show from the 14th to the 17th at the Sands Expo. Recommendations for inexpensive places within walking distance would be great.

West side Thai

It doesn't have to be great, just good.

West side Thai

I'm in town for a few days and was hoping to find some decent Tom Yum. I'm in the west side of phx but I do have a rental car. The town I am from has horrible Thai restaurants, hoping to get something that is decent.

Soju in West Phoenix

I'm on the western side of Phoenix near Glendale. I'd like to find a store that sells soju by the bottle. I would be willing to drive a little. Does anyone know where I can find some? Thanks.

Grimaldi's - Peoria Park West

I meant to post this a few weeks ago but forgot. Then I read the article on them in the newspaper and it reminded me again. We were in the area and in the mood for pizza so we stopped in. We ordered two pizzas. One pepperoni and peppers. The other, sausage and mushroom. Blah! Neither one of them had any real flavor at all. The sausage pizza was watery. What would make it watery? I could get over that but what I didn't like was that there was nothing there to make the pizza actually taste good. The waitress kept stressing the "coal fired pizza" angle. I didn't think the crust had any taste either. I do have to say that I did like the cheese. Unfortunately it wasn't enough to make up for the bland sauce and meat toppings.

Brazilian steakhouses in Phoenix

We're coming back to Phoenix in December. My husband will be with me , so we plan to go then. Maybe they'll go with us. I think they would enjoy it.

Brazilian steakhouses in Phoenix

I'm sorry to say but we're not going to either one of them. Apparently 23 miles is too far away. God forbid you drive more than 5 minutes to have some decent food and a different kind of dining experience. I did want to say that after talking to the manager at FEB, he agreed to let the gastric bypass patron pay the vegetarian rate which is $20.

All you can eat Sushi in Las Vegas?

We just ate at a place last night that I thought was really good. Kaya Sushi at 4355 W. Spring Mountain Rd. and it cost $23.

If one HAD to pick a buffet in Vegas...

I just wanted to add that the M might not limit the espresso bar anymore. When I ate there a few days ago, I made several trips. I know she recognized me because she made a comment about my last cup and asked how I liked it. I even got two cups at the same time for myself and to bring back to a dinning partner.

Pizzeria Bianco- Reservations

At 3. Two other separate couples showed up within 10 minutes. Most people started showing at 3:30. We're going to do the same thing this Wednesday.

Pizzeria Bianco- Reservations

I was just there and they had a sigh up announcing their 3 week spring break. I can't remember the exact dates but I'm pretty sure they will be closed on the 25th. I think the dates were from the 23rd to the 14th.

Rosa at Pizzeria Bianco

We went ahead and tried it. You are right, the cheese and onion are the dominate flavors. I could hardly even tell there was rosemary in it. We've now tried all of the pizza's at PB and this one is my least favorite. We probably won't order it again but I am glad that we tried it.

Pizzeria Bianco- Reservations

We ate there Tuesday night and were the very first people in line. There was only one group that showed up with reservations. Does anyone know if they limit reservations to only one group per night?

I really liked the M buffet. I didn't taste anything that I didn't like and I loved the Kalbi. They also have beer and wine, some great desserts, and you can get espresso, cappuccino, or lattes. They'll also give you shots of Bailey's for your coffee. I enjoyed it more than Spice Market.

Rosa at Pizzeria Bianco

I was thinking that it would be the prominent flavor too. I was hoping that the rosemary just added to a wonderful flavorful combination but didn't dominate.

Rosa at Pizzeria Bianco

The last time we tried the Sonny Boy, Margherita, and Wiseguy. We're thinking about trying the Rosa this time but we both hate rosemary. Should we try it anyway? We're also thinking about trying the Biancoverde but adding some Prosciutto or maybe Salami. Does that sound good?
