@Soo You's Dim Sum has pretty good steamed white cakes. The rest of the dim sim is hit and miss. Char Sui Baos there are pretty good also (Baked ones tend to run out fast so get there early! Also make sure you hit up Hai Ky Mi Gia, Lime Tree, San Tung, Farmerbrown's Little Skillet, Fresca, and Nopa!

@Kirk - Thank you!! :) @Ed - Thanks!! :) @Cathy - Good to hear see you too! @Buddha - I got my pork belly from Whole Foods; the butchers can special order for you and trim/etc. They were super awesome in ordering the ingredients I needed for making porchetta. Most Ranch 99's will also have it.

Wow... I'd be so sick of Pho!! We have a Pho Hoa near us that's really crappy but open until 3am. It's our default go to if its super late and we need food. After eating there regularly for 2-3 months, I was completely Pho-ed out. *shudders* I can only imagine what it's like to eat that many bowls within two weeks!!! When I was living down there, we'd drive out to Pho Ca Dao in Mira Mesa.... maybe when you're over the MSG disorder you can head north! :D

@foodhoe - they dont' force us, but its encouraged that we participate in the health and wellness programs... @Jonathan - the biegnents WERE amazing... my motivation for the gym right now is to head there again after this challenege is over. @bill it came out to be about 15 a person since we ordered 3 items. The omelette was around 9-10 and the french toast was around 8-9 and the biegnents were around 8. Throw in a glass of orange juice and brunch we got breakfast and lunch out of the way! @ Carol - the crawfish one's my fav! :)

@ ed - I have a bad habit of reading and oogling at food blogs before lunch. @Kirk - I agree! It's quite strange! @Carol - I hope you did get a chance to eat at Darda before you left! @Janfrederick - YAY!!! :) They also have a bunch of really good dishes... just hard to order a lot when its two of us!

@janfrederick - I wasn't adventurous enough in trying the gator... I saw it on the menu and squirmed. I had tasted a small nibble at the Gilroy Garlic Festival and found it rather.... gator-y... @nhbilly - Thanks!! It was awesome! I loved Texas! @Sandy - I would have totally done what you did!! The food there is really really good!! @Kirk - It was fantastic! I was ready to hibernate after my trip. We also stopped by and ate Texas BBQ, Crawfish boils, etc. Unfortunately I had forgotten my camera at his house and had to resort to iPhone pictures for those.

@ Sawyer - Alton Brown had a great episode on good eats explaining it... dry aging develops the flavor so it has more depth and makes it more tender... i think rainwater in sd offers dry aged... @nhbilly - TOTALLY AGREE!!! I like my steaks plain. if it's good, it'll hold up on its own! @ed - Thanks!! It feels good to be writing again!
