company burger- things I wish I'd known

I have an intense dislike of processed cheese and Texas toast. So, the burger is processed cheese only, unless you want lamb. I chose a hot dog.
What the hell is wrong with a bun? Yeah, it's Texas toast in a bun-ish form. Ok, it's me, but I wish someone had given me this info before I spent $25. People love this place and that's fine. I just wish I'd had this info first.

Tamarind

Has anyone tried Tamarind in the Modern Hotel on Lee Circle? If so, please share your experience. Looking for birthday dinner or lunch somewhere new. Thanks.

Saffron, Vietnamese Farmer's Mkt, Brocato's Eat Dat, St Patrick's and St Joseph's Days

The farmer's market generally has only about 15 vendors. One or two will have sticky rice bundles and some kind of rice "plate" (boiled egg, meat, veg over rice). It's not a place I would go for charm, it's in a rather trash-strewn parking lot across from a river front plant of some kind (poss. refinery). So....hipsters with baby strollers it ain't.

My husband and I go to that farmer's market nearly every Saturday. The only problem you may have is finding someone to translate with one or two of the older women, but everyone has been very helpful in that regard. We always eat at Pho Bang, then hit Duoc Phong bakery just past that for amazing bread and pastries. Make sure you get an early start. Farmer's start leaving by 8:30 am.

Bradenton-Cubans and Other Stuff

we ate at jose's last week and were blown away. my husband hadn't had a cuban sandwich in 20 years so i think his expectations were mythic. he was more than satisfied and i could have eaten this every day for the rest of the trip.
