Sick in bed comfort food

Congee or pho! Or hot and sour soup. Or corn and chicken soup. The kind made from a can of creamed corn, chicken broth, pieces of chicken, and an egg dropped in.

What is the most overrated food city?

Enoteca San Marco at the Venetian was horrible. The pasta was salty and they didn't know how to cook steak. The bread they gave us was wrapped in paper and so hard that we didn't even bother trying to eat it.

The best thing your school cafeteria served

The best thing at my high school's cafeteria was the shepherd's pie and the poutine! The chow mein was horrible *shudders*

Best Chinese in Vancouver?

If you want good Chinese food, generally it's Richmond but usually outside of Chinatown. Sun Sui Wah on Main or Kirin, the one on Cambie is good.

I agree with fmed's rec of the Crystal Mall food court.

For Korean food, there's a lot downtown, a bunch on Kingsway or Coquitlam. The best one is on North Road in the Burnaby/Coquitlam called Insadong.

Copa Cafe - Cambie St. Vancouver

HK style cafes are usually pretty good value. Most Chinese restaurants generally are though.

What is the perfect combination of food and liquor on Main St.

Food at the Whip was not worth the money we spent. My friend ordered a smoked salmon wrap and finished less than half of it because she found it so dissatisfying. The drinks weren't bad, though.

guu jump around night?

Jump around night refers to their drink special that night.

Viennetta Ice Cream - where can I find it?

Love that stuff! My sister and I lucked out in China and got mini individual sized ones.

What did your Mom always have on hand, that you NEVER do?

I didn't even know there was such a thing as canned chow mein -_-

Good food and interesting drinks!

Cheese in Chinese Cuisine

The only ones I can think of are HK style dishes which would fit under fusion.

Fountain sodas vs. canned - which do you prefer

A pass on the fountain drinks. Usually too watered down for my taste and I like the convenience of being able to close it back it up with a bottle because I'm usually unable to finish the drink in one sitting

Most Underrated Foods

Tofu and rice rock! Not brown rice, though, hate the taste, even though it's better for you. No matter how my aunt, a really good cook makes her brussel sprouts, I refuse to eat them.
