Bone to pick with Shanghai Bun Matawan

That's strange. I got the lamb last time and everyone enjoyed it, and there was plenty of meat.

How do you cook rat tail (super digital flexor muscle of beef)

It's the same thing as shank. Braise til tender! Mmm.

Over-easy vs Over-medium

You most likely only preferred the organic eggs because of the color and because you expected it to be better. http://www.seriouseats.com/2010/08/wh...

Why do Restaurants Use Frozen French Fries?

I think that's the thread.

Korean Cuisine Beginner: What do I order?

Must try Korean dishes IMO:

Korean BBQ (Galbi (Short ribs), Sam gyup sal (Pork Belly), etc)
Korean fried chicken (plain or sauced)
Bibim Bap (Like a Korean rice salad/paella?)
Hwe Dup Bap (Bibim bap with raw fish)
Ja Jang Myun (Like spaghetti w meat sauce but with bean paste)
Soft Tofu Soup (Boiling hot soup with creamy tofu)
Kimchi or Denjang Chigae (Hot stew with Kimchi or bean paste)
Duk bokki (Spicy rice cakes)
Dak Galbi (Duk bokki with chicken)
Nakji Bokkum (spicy octopus on hot skillet)
Bossam (boiled pork wrapped in salted cabbage and fresh kimchi filling - not the David Chang stuff)

http://travel.cnn.com/seoul/eat/40-fo... has pictures and descriptions of most of the stuff.

>Chop up the sausage to get them evenly heated. Maybe add them and the sauerkraut to a stir fry. Heat the latkes in a toaster oven and serve with applesauce!!

I really wanted to stop posting on Chowhound permanently but I couldn't resist reponding to this post because that is EXACTLY what I did! Minus the applesauce. It was delicious and I'm alive and well. :)

I'd rate my likelihood of long-term eventual death "probable" and imminent death "inevitable."

I accidentally left some leftover potato pancakes and German sausage with sauerkraut and cabbage in my car last night. Overnight temps were ~70. Daytime temps were 90-100. I'll probably die but I'm going to eat it now anyway. Nice knowing you, fellow hounds.

Korean Cuisine Beginner: What do I order?

This depends very much on what kind of Korean restaurants you have near you. If there's a place that does tabletop BBQ bring a friend and order some galbi.

Banh Mi sandwiches: Is that all there is?

I'm not saying a burrito has to have salsa/rice/beans in it. I'm saying it's *like* making that argument. Your point is duly noted. ;)

Banh Mi sandwiches: Is that all there is?

>meatball sub, provolone, raw onions, and jalapenos

This is just some concoction you made up. It's not a standard sub by any means. I dare you to find this on a menu at any sub shop. You won't.

The comparison you're making isn't actually sub vs banh mi, it's sandwich vs. banh mi. You're allowing the option of putting anything inside the sandwich and still calling it a sub whereas you are limiting banh mi to the usual toppings. What kind of comparison is that?

It's like saying "A burrito is a one trick pony because it always has beans and rice and salsa...wraps on the other hand, you can make them taste like anything! I can put meatballs and onions in one and it's totally different from if I put in tuna and cheese!" Well duh. So what?

I do find your comment about chili sauce to be interesting though since I've never had that on a banh mi.

Same here...never seen chili sauce on banh mi. Hm.

Banh Mi sandwiches: Is that all there is?

I don't get this "one trick pony" business. It's a sandwich where you get to pick different meats while the toppings stay relatively the same. Some places do things slightly differently but there are commonalities that most banh mis share. Why does that make a food item a one trick pony? What sandwich isn't a one trick pony by that definition?

Subway is in no way representative of what most sub shops put out. The standard sub/hoagie topping is LTO Oil Vinegar (and/or mayo) S&P and oregano. Most sub shops will have the option of adding hot peppers to that but that's about it. Subway is the exception to this and not the norm. If I started a sandwich shop called BanhWay and offered a thousand toppings does that suddenly make the Banh Mi a multi trick pony?

Some sandwiches are defined by the meat (hamburger, cheese steak, falafel, pulled pork), while others are defined by a set of common toppings and methods used to prepare it (club sandwich/blt, sub/hoagie, banh mi, parm sandwich) and others may have really loose or strict rules (fat sandwich, italian beef, patty melt, torta/cemita).

If you're looking for creative takes on the banh mi, they are definitely out there, just not as common.

Oo-toro sushi question???

I don't know the answer to any of your questions but I'm so glad you asked. Discussions like this is why I love Chowhound...thank you! Lots to be learned here about our tuna parts :)

Banh Mi sandwiches: Is that all there is?

A banh mi is a type of sandwich with lots of meat options where the one constant is the carrot radish cilantro. It's like saying "man I've heard great things about Italian parm sandwiches but they all have marinara and cheese... or the hoagie thing someone mentioned above.

If you haven't tried the "classic" I would give it a shot, I personally think this is the best form of banh me. The pate and cold cuts just make it.
