Has anyone been to Rhino Doughnuts & Coffee yet?

I went on a weekday. Obviously the parking is always a nightmare. I was hoping the donuts would be a big enough draw to deal with that. But by noon many of the popular ones were sold out. I bought a half dozen assorted for friends. They were good but not fantastic. And definitely not worth dealing with LBS parking. Maybe early in the day they would blow your socks off more.

Trader Joe's?!?

I haven't seen any movement on any of the PBC locations. But I sure don't want to drive to the Miami location. That place sounds like a nightmare to get to... I was hoping early 2014 for one to open. Fingers crossed.

Downtown Atlanta good, ethnic eats for Dragoncon?

Thanks everybody. We ended up catching dinner at Truva near the convention. It was pretty good and very close. And definitely healthier than many of the alternative places. I'll check out your recs. I really appreciate your input!

Thanks! Anything that's accessible by MARTA will work! I just don't want to be eating crummy pizza and food court food all weekend. I even found a place downtown that has take out including Ethiopian! Who knows!?

Going to Dragoncon next weekend. Looking for good, unusual restaurants to try around the downtown area. Fun, ethnic is a plus. Or any weird late night food would be awesome!

Sheila's BBQ

Are we talking Northlake and US1? Is there a Northlake and A1A? And the phone number wasn't working yesterday. Hope that's not a foreboding sign!

Ethiopian finally in South Florida!

In today's paper they mentioned a place called Queen of Sheba @ 716 N Sapodilla. It's says it served soul food but I think they also might start serving Ethiopian! Anybody been there?!? I'm going to check it out this weekend. So psyched it's true.

Trader Joe's?!?

I totally dig TJs. Go to everyone I can find. It's great for fast snacks, cheaper produce and incredibly good deals on wine. And their TJ labeled stuff is always good. Their "cookie batter" spread is amazing and has even fewer carbs than most peanut butter. I think you'll love it.

But can you just do pick up at those places? I liked the ease of running in for my conch salad.

Pho 16 WPB

Really like this place. It's quick and really tasty. The variety on the menu is great. And if you have a cold, this chicken soup also does the job!

Bay Bays Chicken and Waffles - WPB

I agree that the chicken is delicious. Plus the owners are just really nice people. But the other entrees were really not good. Too salty and tasted off. Just stick to the waffles and chicken and you'll be delighted. They're great!!

Unless someone can find me a better conch salad, I'll try to track them down!

Palm Beach County closings 2013

I also saw that FUKU said they were "closed for the summer." That's usually bogus, especially when it's written free handed on a sheet of paper. It never seemed busy.

I drove by before it was demolished and think it said something about Northlake. But I can't find a clue where they are now. Their Facebook page hasn't been updated since 2010. Ugh. I miss the conch salad.

Has anyone tried this market yet?? I really like the Korean market across from Gabose off of University. Wondering how it compares. Kinda psyched there's another big market to choose from!

Sheila's BBQ and seafood is still open, just moved.

I don't know how long they'll be open. Every time I'm there it's empty. I think that location blows. It's too bad 'cause the conch salad is awesome. Hope people start finding it!!

Hey. I was worried Sheila's had closed for good. But found out they just moved north on Dixie to Dixie and Southern in WPB. They're on the SW corner. It's a cute little place and the food is still as awesome. Had some conch salad and fried conch the other day. Was great. Hope everybody finds them.

Cod & Capers Seafood Market and Restaurant in North Palm Beach

Sheila's is still open. Just moved to Dixie and Southern SW corner. Much nicer place than the ok joint. Food just as good. I sure missed the conch salad!!

Hot Pot in Hollywood

Anybody been there?? Sounds interesting. Might be somewhere those of us looking for Shabu Shabu could dig.

Where to buy fresh caught fish in WPB area?

Ocean Avenue in Lantana right behind Sushi Bon. There are always fisherman selling their daily catch off their boats in that marina.

Thanksgiving with annoying inlaws!! Need help.

Need a good spot in Palm Beach County, preferably WPB and north to eat Thanksgiving.

Nothing that would take too long. Ugh. But seriously, I can't think of anywhere.

And if I'm gonna be miserable, I'd love at least for the food to taste good. Hee.

Thanks!!

Need Ethiopian suggestions for Las Vegas

Hi! Was so thrilled to see many Ethiopian restaurants in Vegas. South Florida has none!
Does anyone have a favorite? With limited time there, I want to hit the best. My craving will finally be met. Thanks!!

Cha Cha, authentic Japanese pub food in WPB

We finally got around to checking out Cha Cha in Royal Palm Beach last night.

Wow. I felt like we were back in Tokyo, eating at this small friendly joint. Family owned, the little spot with fewer than 10 tables, was really inviting. The owner's daughter handled the four seated tables singlehandedly with ease and an adorable attitude.

The menu is great. I highly recommend the yakitori/skewers. We sampled spicy chicken, chicken with scallion, mixed vegetables and scallops. All were absolutely delicious. We also ate the tofu shoga-yaki, tofu sautéed with a ginger sauce over bean sprouts. Yum.

The sushi and salad were good, as was the mixed tempura appetizer. The steaming ramen at the other table smelled great.

But what will bring us back is definitely the yakitori. It was fresh, grilled perfectly with a delicious salty sweet sauce. Best we've had in South Florida.

The location stinks because it's almost invisible from 441. It's in the same strip mall as a Jimmy Johns and other random stuff. It's on the west side of the road and in the back of the complex.

Fortieth birthday dinner, need really tasty, unusual and unstuffy in PB county.

We love Kubo. It's amazing. Really unusual upscale food in a pretty laid back, funky atmosphere. The one dish with tea infused salmon with yuzu gelee and fried basil is one of the best things vie ever tasted. Ever. Go there. You'll love it.
