Need Boone, NC Recs

I had a great meal at Proper last week. My only fried item was a potato cake. But the food was fresh, yummy, and service was good. It seems that they're special sell out early on the weekends.

King Cake - Chicago and North Shore

I ended up with a King Cake from Three Tarts Bakery in Northfield. No fruit, but a cheese filling. It works, but I still miss Randozzo's.

King Cake - Chicago and North Shore

Where can I find King Cake in the North Shore / Chicago? I'm looking for king cake with both the cream cheese and fruit fillings. I'm in the North Burbs, but I'm willing to travel for NOLA King Cake.

Burgers in Paradise at IU Bloomington

Nick's has a great house salad and dressing, I'd recommend Mother Bear's for Pizza.

What is one tip that you learned about cooking that was simple but made a huge difference? [old]

Let your pancake batter rest for five minutes before cooking. And don't flip the pancakes until bubbles in the middle of the pancake pop.

Afternoon Tea

I'm a fan of the Peninsula too. The view is uninspired but the service and the experience is top notch.

Tibetan Restaurants?

The only Tibetan in the Midwest that I'm aware of is in Bloomington, Indiana - Home of the Dali Lama's Brother and Indiana University. Snow Lion and Little Tibet. If you're really interested it could be a weekend road trip --> and order spicy potatoes.

Piri Piri Sauce & Portuguese in Chicago

World Market carries Nando's sauce, and you can pick up African style peri peri spice rub at Whole Foods.
