Which San Diego Area Casino has the Best Lunch and Dinner Buffet?

I take back my previous post from 7/11, We dined at Pala on Xmas the 25th and the food was just horrid. Everything wasn't even hot, sorta luke warm and felt like it was leftover from the previous night. Then I thought ok maybe the desserts will make up for it but nope. Same think, day old dried out cakes nothing was edible I felt like I was in some bad nightmare cause the Yelp reviews were so great.

Valley View prob still one of the best. We went to Harrah's last Sat and had awesome food right up there like VV. But what won me over most was their desserts, very very good. I will be back most definitely. I'm just tired of waiting in line for these buffets, it's like min 2hrs not matter where you go. Pala was 3 hrs & horrible food.

Where to buy Guarana Antarctica? (soda @ Fogo De Chao)

Anyone heard of a online place called Amazon? it will be most likely cheaper & you won't even have to waste any gas driving around..it will arrive in your door step in 2 days free shipping with prime membership.

why is ming tsai selling the aero knife?

I got the knives too and they suck, barely cuts anything.
They’re selling like hotcakes cause of the clearance price and right now Ming is at HSN again this time it’s even a better deal you get 3 Knives with the additional 8″ chefs knife.

It’s not bad really if you take the time to sharpen them before using them or they're worthless. They make great Xmas gifts so I’m buying several sets & his bamboo cutting board which is also only $19.

DE BUYER FK2 Santoku Knife

Axiel I think you got a mfg defect, there's isn't a knife that the handle cracked just after a few uses not even the cheapest one made in China. But who knows, did you use it to chop stacks of wood for your fireplace wink wink.

No seriously, that's def a mfg defect a lemon which they should have sent you a replacement so that's the only way you know for sure it was a lemon.

What discontinued products do you miss?

Kidding me...There's something better...V8-Fusion strawberry banana, orange peach, tropical orange, and some other flavors.

I'm a big fan of those flavors but to me Dole carton juices are a bit too acidic tart and sour while V8 gets it right.

Shees, why go through so much trouble when Pepperidge Farms still makes apple turn overs in the frozen section bakes in 20 min.

Relax guys, Dur Wienersnitzel had deep fried apple pies that are very good. Of course not like the orginal crispy piping hot burrito shape ones that burned your upper mouth at MacD's but it's not bad at all.

Gawd I would die for Campbell's chicken & noodle soup with mushrooms and those thin noodles. Why did they change that incredible recipe and give us this gross thick al dente noodles with big dry tasteless chunk pieces of chicken I will never understand.

OH yes there is and trust me I've eaten every frozen burrito made in the past 40 yrs and it's in Costco and some Food 4 Less...

Posado....you're welcome. Magical, the softest, supple-lest tortillas filled with the freshest home made beans and shredded meat with just the right meat to bean ratio UNLIKE the ones from Ramona.

Yes that flavor from Hagen-Daaz is nothing new or special...it's all over the TV commercials as I write this in June 2013

Have you try their egg rolls? they're actually better than most chinese food take outs. The key is the dipping sauce you have to ask them for the fajita salsa in those flat round containers, they have them hidden in the fridge you have to ask for it.

If they give you the hot sauce packets say no way Jose not those, insist on it. The best 5 star budget $4 meal you can get: Jumbo jack + 3 egg rolls

MY god that sounds dreamy. Did you know Breyer's had Almond Joy ice cream back in 02? it was the best thing ever and of course they took it away and only kept other flavors like Reeses and Milky Way I think which I don't get at all.

Don't laugh but I've yet in this lifetime to taste any B&J ice cream. Is that odd or what? It's just I never see any flavors like coconut almond joy but ridiculous over the top flavors for infants like triple monkey caramel cake batter is what I see every time I peak in the freezer section so it's not my fault.

Strange Pairings that Taste Uncommonly Good

This is not so much that strange just maybe creative but Maggi seasonings on sunny side up eggs is just incredible. Something so simple like this can be a 5 star experience right in your kitchen anyone can dish up.

So instead of sprinkling the usual sea salt, drizzle some of that German or Swiss soy sauce on that broken yolk to off set the richness is so good + some sour dough toast and bacon with the eggs will make my day.

Before you can only get a bottle at 99 ranch or asian markets but now it's everywhere Ralphs, Food 4 less, Albertsons, etc

Oh, a bit of Maggi + some siracha will really spruce up your boring cup O Nooldles

Same here, our costco has a ton of Classico in a 3 pack. Since then, I've never been back to Ragu.

What? that doesn't make any sense. As time goes by and we get older we appreciate quality and don't mind spending time making things from scratch right? when you're young you don't time to cook so a cheap jar of Ragu is normally the case.

What Food Trend are You So Sick Of?

OMG this drives me NUTS...esp when a chef takes a piece of food in his hands then starts to fidget around with it on the plate like a kid plays with this toys so that it looks "pretty" is so stupid. I don't even want to touch that piece of food anymore after it's been handle like that.

+100...Tapas is one of the biggest rip offs in the industry. I can't believe the audancity to think I would pay nearly $10 worth of food in a small plate couple bites of food. Like Mr Taster said it may work in Spain or whatever but here in the land of Taco Bell and Micky D's dollar menu.

Amen...I'm sooo tired of seeing this guy all over TV. He acts like he invented "food" or something. I watch his show on pbs Mind of a chef just because I'm addicted to food shows and again he makes the weirdest concoctions.

I keep asking myself..."who is this guy really"? he has a ramen noodle shop in NY and all of sudden he's like some rock star chef???

Strange Pairings that Taste Uncommonly Good

Just sea salt on the pineapple and esp water melon really transformed it.

But for things like sour green apples before they ripen, as a kid my mom would take a Mortar & Pestle and crush fresh thai chiles into the salt until the salt was red. The red spicy salt was alone delicious very addictive by itself.

Best All-Natural, No Sugar Added Peanut Butter Brand

Yes, precisely. Why do people always do this I have no clue. They do this with other stuff too like furniture or electronics, like who has the freakin time, knowledge, patient to make it from scratch? Plus by the time you end up paying for the parts needed it's more than if you go out and buy the damn thing...and it can never equal the research and skill in making it by the original makers.

Kitchen cabinets-quote that almost gave me a heart attack!

Well ok, in all fairness the Ikea cabinets I used were with my previous kitchen I had done up in LA back in 99. Perhaps Ikea has listened to their customers and spruced the quality. But back then they look really nice in the showroom, but when I had them installed in my kitchen they were so flimsy.

You have 20 lin ft..I have 26.5 lin ft for $2680. Ok let me ask you this, are your Ikea cab solid wood with plywood shelves with no particle board.

Never Ikea, it feels and looks so cheap. You can almost punch through the doors...you can do better with price and quality from tons of listings on Craigslist. They all offer pretty much the same cabinets...solid wood doors with plywood drawers and self-closing

I got the Shaker in Beech with a lazy susan, 9" spice rack for $2800 incl tax. If I pay cash, then its only 2500 no tax. They come fully assembled, some places your contractor will assemble them.
