The better lean cuisine items

Funny. I'm actually eating lean cuisine right now. I really really really like their Lemongrass Chicken.


Patsy's down by Union Sq on University.

Cincinnati dinner with college students

Isn't Skyline Chili the thing to eat if you visit Cincinnati?

NY Pizza for Chicago Visitors

I'd say Patsy's as well. You can sit down, enjoy decent service, and have great fresh pizza.

Street food longings

They're just basically what they sound like. It's milk, but sweetened with sugar, and then frozen into a popsicle. It's either condensed milk or milk sweetened with sugar, and then basically frozen into a popsicle.

Craving: Chicken Cutlet Sandwich

Well if you head up into Queens, Gino's pizzeria(by Queens College) has an amazing chicken cutlet sandwich.

Quick Weeknight Meals

This is a complete bringover from college, but I always enjoyed it. Pasta with kielbasa or a nice sausage and onions, portabellas, and tomatoes. Fast, easy, and good.

Favorite Cheese?

Provolone. No questions asked.

Reviving rice?

Put it in a fridge. Day old rice tends to make the best fried rice.

Peanut Powder...where to find?

I'm not sure if this is the same thing you're looking for, but chinese markets carry peanut powder. It's used in a few traditional dishes so they always carry it.

What's your "bedtime snack"?

Cold Cuts. It's just protein, no real carbs, and I'm a carnivore. =)

Shrimp Tails

Never eaten a shrimp tail, but deep fried shrimp is no different from eating a soft shelled crab. And everyone has weird eating habits, so don't feel like you're odd.

French Fries - How do you like them?

French fries with Vanilla Ice Cream!!

Also Pomme Frites in New York City makes these amazing dipping sauces. My favorite is the roasted garlic and the mango chutney sauces they have.

Street food longings

I love street food in New York, but if you've ever been to night markets in Asia, especially Taiwan, street food in New York is nothing. That's an entire industry an part of the culture there. And it's always freshly cooked, and it's impossible to walk down any street without getting real hungry.

When I visited Taiwan as a kid, I had a thing for sweet milk popsicles. Sort of miss that. Nobody else really makes those.

Multi-colored cookies: Do they have a name?

I tend to usually see them labeled as Rainbow cookies no matter what bakery I'm in.

Why are eggs so satisfying?

I love eggs no matter how they're cooked. It's a great source of protein and it just tastes great. And there are so many different ways to cook it. I personally love steamed eggs, which seems to be an asian thing.

Also I ALWAYS refrigerate my eggs.

Most edible canned/packaged soup?

I really think you can't beat the ease and taste of Campbell's canned soups. Everything else just tasted bland or poor in my opinion. Unless there's some amazing soup brand I haven't heard of.

$1.00 for dim sum?

Actually, it's $1.75 for small, medium, and large. It's basically a weekday special.

best chinese dumplings

You should check out Joe's Shanghai. They're known for their soup dumplings.

Best Korean Stews and Soups in Manhattan?

I agree with everyone else. For Soondubu, you have to go to Seoul Garden. It's basically what they're known for.

In search of a few hard-to-find specialties

Durian's a new one...
You can get close with Durian Ice Cream though at the Chinatown Ice Cream Factory.

Food Snob or Food Lover?

I'm both. I can be a food snob, and be very discerning about food. But I'm not gonna insult bad food. I just know there's much better, but I can still enjoy eating.

Reasons for Organic

I enjoy buying organic, even though there's a bit of a premium for a few reasons. First of all, I think it tastes better and fresher, though that may be a placebo effect because of the hgher price. But there's something nice about knowing that it was grown or raised naturally, and that you're really helping out local farmers who are trying to make their living and are often shut out by much larger farming operations.

chinese new year!?

This is a little late, but if you're still looking, Joe's Shanghai is always a fun chinese place to eat.

Best Take Out Rugelah in Manhattan

How Do You Eat Your Dogs?

I eat my hotdogs by going to Gray's Papaya in New York and eat them for $2.75 for two hot dogs and one of their fresh made tropical fruit drinks! =)

Oh yea, with sauerkraut, grilled onions, and ketchup and tomato!

Pho In Flushing

Pho Bang on Kissena Blvd directly across from the library is the standard where everyone goes for pho.

Flushing Chinatown - Main Street

I'd say the place on the corner of Main and Kissena with the giant noodle bowl. It's not Taiwanese.

are there any of those resturants that cook the food at the table?

If you're looking for Korean BBQs, Korea Town is filled with them. I suggest Kum Gang Sun or Seoul Garden. Authentic Japanese grills populate e9th and about 3rd.
