Where to eat in Puerto Vallarta now?

Going to PV and wondering if people have any recent recommendations. Been to La Palapa and, while the setting is gorgeous, like a few other posters wasn´t all that taken with the food. Loved Los Xitomates but the last time I was there it seemed closed. Wanted to try El Arrayan but doesn´t sound like its worth it anymore. Any ideas?

Blendtek blender for juices instead of juicer?

I'm considering buying a blendtek blender to make juices rather a juicer. Like the idea of getting the health benefits of the whole fruit or vegtable. What will happen though if I toss a few carrots and some apples in? Will it make a juice that is comparable tastewise to a juicer? Thanks!

Durango recs?

I'll be in Durnago for two weeks coming up here in October on a romantic reconnaissance mission. Figure with all the interpersonal drama that might entail, I'm going to work up quite the appetite, and this board seems strangely mum when it comes to this northern city. Any recommendations? I'm an adventurous eater open to anything good. Thanks!

Great Portland Salads

Perhaps its not very "chowhoundish," but I'm on a diet. But I still want to eat great food. Any recommendations for great Portland salads? I'm looking for the whole meal size. Where's Portland's best cesar salad? Best chef salad? Great more exotic salads? Thanks!

Pad thai in PDX without ketchup?

The best pad thai in Portland (well, the best Thai anything in Portland) can be found at Lemongrass. Just be careful about the spice level. Medium in lemongrass-speak is hot as hell anywhere else. May still be closed as the owner is on vacation so call first. Enjoy....

Cheap and Tasty Dives

Visiting San Francisco and looking for cheap (under $15) and tasty dives. Staying around 9th and Market, but will bus for food. Ethnic food recommendations especially appreciated although one of our party is deathly afraid of cockroaches, and believes they all dine on Mission burritos, so that's out. Thanks in advance!
