Chinese Sausage

I like it pan fried to eat with eggs and rice or stir fry with veggies like Chinese broccoli. or cabbage. I have friends who have steamed or boiled them.

Visiting Champlin in May

Reason I mentioned Mall of America is I been there several times and have eaten in most of the places there.

Visiting Champlin in May

Just visiting family and I would like to take them to either dinner, lunch or breakfast, but dinner would be 1st.
They probably have their favorites but I would like to go someplace they have might have not gone.
Diners drive in and dives had that bowling place so 45mins to 1 hr drive can be ok and price up to 25 person.

*uncle clay's house of pure aloha redefines shave ice*

Grew up going to Shimazu so I like it better than most. Lived across Lanakila Elementary school on Kuakini.
Went to L&L before it was L&L on Liliha.
Guess I need to try Uncle Clays.

Are we supposed to be tipping much less than I thought in California?

I live in Southern California and I usually only tip 15%. Less if service was sub-par. I don't care what the server makes that's between him and the owner. I tip because of the service.

Why do people go to All-You-Can-Eat Buffets?

To see if you can eat more than what you pay for and the variety of foods offered.
What I don't get is why do people go to AYCE places and they eat the garbage stuff like pizza, fries, bread, fried chicken, spaghetti, salad bar and jello or pudding?
Shouldn't they eat the high end stuff like the crab, clams oysters (seafood), sushi, meat.

Does anyone remember Cyrano's or Scandia restaurant(s) on Sunset?

Went to Scandia way back in the early 1980's before it closed in 1989. Had to wear coat and tie to get in with reservations. Great food and service.

Yes the Restaurant and Bakery is on Sepulveda in Torrance and King's Local Place on Western Ave in Gardena which next to their Factory just a block north of 190th. The local place is small but they serve food and baked goods. Their Home office building is about a half mile away off of 190th.

cooking kalua pork and need ti leaves

If you call ahead and tell them what you need the leaves for they will not treat it and put it aside for you. It is costly from a florist. I prefer wrapping in banana leaves then in foil. But you really don't need the leaves. Just use liquid smoke and cover it tightly with foil and cook it for several hours. I Hawaiian salt mine after I shred it and keep it moist with the juices from the pan. My brother in-law cooks his in one of those oven bags and it comes out good also.

Thanksgiving Turkey--Fresh or Frozen?

Fresh for roasting and frozen for fried. The fresh is just a little higher priced, not by much though.
