Kansas City, Missouri
Best meal I ever ate:
#23 at Sun Song's in Kansas City, Missouri (Westport area). I have a real dislike of asian food, but this particular meal is perfect. The way that the pork and shrimp carmelize in the wok, the rice noodles, the pickled carrot slices (!), I was so surprised at how much I appreciated this meal that it has to be the best I've ever had. In honesty, I've probably had meals that were better, but I expected to like them, so they don't stick out.
My current drink of choice:
Cream Soda (Ginger Ale and Spiced Rum)
I really wish I could:
Afford a really complex smoker.
My favorite comfort food:
My top 5 favorite restaurants:

My most tattered cookbooks:
The encyclopedia of cooking, given to my wife by her grandfather (a Navy cook in WWII, Korea and Vietnam).
