@Bangkok Thai in Harbor City

DrBruin.....I like it way better than Lomita Thai. The last two times when I ordered an entree from Lomita Thai the onions weren't done. I don't like raw onions as they leave a real bad taste in my mouth. The one thing I do like at Lomita Thai is their Prik King. Go ahead and try @Bangkok....or as some call it.... At Bangkok... let us know.

@Bangkok Thai in Harbor City

A new Thai restaurant in Harbor city has emerged called @Bangkok. In the old Cham Thai building on PCH just East of Western Blvd. All new and tastefully decorated inside. We have been there four times now and all four times we haven't been disappointed. Very fresh entrees, no frozen vegetables like a Thai restaurant, not to be named, on PV Drive and Western. The Spicy Beef salad and Pork Salad were both full of lime/chili flavors. The Hawaiian Curry was sweet and had a twist in that there were Serrano chilies that made it so good I didn't want to stop eating. Along these lines of hot and spicy we loved the Chili with chicken, it also is made with serranos. For a slightly different taste try the Dragon Dish, we had it with chicken and it has cucumbers, tomatoes onions with chili paste. Other dishes we tried and found delicious were the Spicy Mint, Drunken noodle and/or spaghetti (their version of Pad Ke Mow). If hot isn't your style the Mongolian Beef was very good and sweet. Another nice thing are the prices...all the above entrees ranged from $7.50 to $7.95. Rice was extra but if you order from the special dinner menu you get a small salad and rice along with your meal for $7.50. No alcohol license yet so no Thai beers : ( Highly recommended.

Looking for a nice restaurant for our companys 25th anniversary. No chains. Something for 24 people that would please all. Near the 22 and 91 frwys so it'd be centrally located. No more than $45/plate. Northern Italian is nice or anything that's comparable. Thanks, Gerry

Looking for loose leaf, portable tea cup.

This is a follow up....after going to Starbucks and looking at their tea brew cups, I believe they are made by Bodum, I didn't like their feel and the feedback on another site didn't give them a good reputation. I did end up buying the Nissan 11oz. Traveler,which is actually made by thermos. It's built like a tank and is a quality product as evidenced by it's overall craftsmanship. Actually for me it keeps the tea too hot....it insulates sooo well. It has two tops for drinking, one for tea with a filter basket and another for coffee. Plus a third top that seals either the tea or coffee top. So far it's great....after a good washing it has not contributed any plastic or any other taste to my teas. It seals in the aroma as it brews and is the perfect non-breakable, portable, no "off flavors", tea brew cup.

Help! What do I do with all the loose-leaf tea that I have that I don't LOVE?

Liu....I use up my teas I no longer care for by adding 2-4 jasmine balls. Gives it a floral aroma and taste that can mask those teas that aren't up to par. Also provides a change of pace to my normal tea drinking habits, mostly Oolongs, by drinking a "flavored" tea.

I went online and found another one that everyone raves about. It's the tea traveler by Nissan. Holds 11 oz....comes with two tops,one with a basket for tea and one for coffee....plus a lid that seals both. Also found a 14oz one by JOEmo but didn't like their 360 degree top and it was too tall and thin. I stopped by two Starbucks but they didn't carry the one you mentioned.

I don't like the idea of tea bags...they may impart a very minor flavor..just want the leaves to shine through. ...also tea bags confine the leaves so they may not impart all their flavor to the tea?

Dioban....no,didn't see any stainless mugs. I only saw the plastic/glass thermos's they have. Let me know if you can find it on their site...may have discontinued it?

Pei...Thanks but he tea ball still keeps all the leaves compacted...I like to let em run free, as this may allow more surface area of the leaves to get to all the water.

Thanks, I looked at them and the gourds don't have a secure top...the tea may spill as I am driving. I do like the sipping straws...neat idea, they may be an option...but I would still need a secure non-breakable container that doesn't add any off flavors. Thanks,Gerry

Most edible canned/packaged soup?

The very best commercial soup I have come across is the Campbells Select GOLD LABEL "Blended Red Pepper Black Bean" soup that comes in a box. It comes in a smaller box than the one's TJ's sells. (I like TJ's tomato and red pepper soup also). It tastes like something you would get in a great bistro.

Looking for loose leaf, portable tea cup.

I want a loose leaf, green tea brewing cup. One that keeps the leaves from entering your mouth when you drink. I already have a plastic one but it imparts a plasticy flavor and that's not acceptable. The one I have now has this mesh basket that keeps the tea seperated from your lips as you drink. It also comes with a screw top that allows the tea to brew without loosing any flavor or spilling while driving. I was thinking a double walled stainless one may be great as it won't shatter. Holding about 8-10 oz of water. This is something that comes in handy when you are mobile....like when you have to run around in the car...or are at a customers account and want a good cup of loose leaf green tea. I don't like tea bags and instead carry some of my favorite loose leaf green teas in small plastic bottles....that way I can have a great cup of tea any where.
