Persian Room

great place, the portions are the same at lunch and dinner but cheaper at lunch. Dinner service is nice with the fresh baked pitas.

Lumpia Factory Chandler (PHX)

was in the mood for some filipino breakfast this weekend. I haven't been to Lumpia Factory in a long time and sad to see it has closed down.

Burgers!!!

when the outdoor grills are going at AJ's they have some very tasty fresh burgers.
I'd also recommend the burgers at Lobby's slightly north of southern and McClintock. Tempe.

Takeda Thai by Moulay- Scottsdale, AZ

Just tried Takeda after viewing the review tonight. I ordered the Roti canai and Pad Prik Khing and a beer. The portion size is pretty small compared to Thai house, Swadee or Osha but i was impressed of the freshness of the vegetables. Its a tad expensive for the value IMO but again maybe i'm paying for the "upscale atmosphere". If the prices are halved for lunch with same portions I had, then it would make sense.

looking for Korean restaurants located in east valley (Phoenix)

i wasnt aware if there are different styles of Korean food, but i assume there might be differences as far as regional styles. I'm open to try them all.

Review: Little Rangoon - Scottsdale

definitely mixed reviews here. I'll have to try this place for myself. I have close family friends that own the Rangoon restaurant in Philly and alot of the food there is very flavorful and the spicy dishes spicy. I hope not to be over critical because i dont have much experience eating Burmese food elsewhere.

Why are all the Chinese restaurants in Central Phoenix a bad facsimile of Panda Express?

i've been in the area for 3 years now..so far my favorite is Tao Garden in chandler. I always enjoy thier steamed tilapia with ginger/scallion. I have yet to try Diamonds but hear rave reviews from the board and a few office folks

phx metro cheesesteak recommendation?

Coming from philly/SJ..i almost fell flat on the floor when i saw my tab at Corleone's. They make a good cheesesteak, however they are on the stingy side when it comes to the amount of whiz or provolone on the sandwich.
I will be checking out Mancini's soon, i met someone on my flight back to philly over the holidays whom grew up in Philly and has been a longtime PHX resident mention it with rave reviews.

What I ate in Philly! Ocean Harbor, Horizons, Rangoon, Tamarind Thai, Fu Wah Tofu Hoagie

where is Fu Wah located? That sounds so good..i'll be back in philly in the spring.
I can't say i've been to Tamarind, but Rangoon has been a long time favorite when im in the mood for Burmese food.

Where to buy a turducken in philly?

Is D'Angelos the one that you can see rabbits, pheasants, etc hanging in the window streetside? If i recall..its on the opposite side of the street as George's.

Where to buy a turducken in philly?

greetings Chowhounds, i'lll be back in the philly area for the rest of the holidays and want to treat the folks to a turducken. I recently had my first experience during thanksgiving and want others to have this experience. For those who haven't tried, its a deboned chicken thats stufffed into a deboned duck, and into a deboned turkey, ..save for legs and wings. Between the layers some sort of stuffing. The one i had had a crawfish jambalaya stuffing between the layers :)

Anyways, are there any places to order/buy one in the SJ/Philly area?

Nee House: AZ not ready for real Chinese cuisine

i have to give Nee house another chance. I walked in on a sunday afternoon and chose a fried tofu w vegetables dish and the chicken and salt fish fried rice.
The tofu dish turned out good, but most chinese places can't screw that up.
The fried rice was not desireble to say the least, perhaps the chef was out.

I really wanted to give the fried rice a fair comparison to the chicken/fish fried rice at Tao Garden which is delicious. I often order it to go and enjoy the leftovers for breakfast to accompany some fried eggs.

on a positive note, i was impressed with thier vast menu

Hot dogs phx/scttsdl

Hot dogs phx/scttsdl

Try dickies dogs on e. bell rd in scottsdale. They are chicago style and offer your choice of steamed or charred on the grill. Also offering turkey dogs my friend raves about. I personally go for the charred chicago dog and a grilled Italian sausage. If any room for dessert they have cheesecake on a stick ;)
