That was awesome. I'd seen in a few times but not taken the time to watch it. Got chills multiple times throughout! Thanks for sharing, sir!
Big congrats, Dom! So very well deserved. Really appreciate all you do to help expose the good guys out there that otherwise unnoticed might just go away.

Hoping with all my heart that we can make this work! If you're not familiar with the concept, just check out any thread on, a Chicago food board. The discussion, education, community and discovery that it fosters is amazing. (dish thread example: - restaurant thread example: Phx food folks, please take a look, sign up & participate!

Oh man. This sounds like a perfect day to me. I'm going to get Heather to read this post & see if it hastens my first trip over there! :)

Another killer post and I'm so happy to seeing ShinBay kick things off. Love that pork belly pastrami too... And there is no way you could have left Santuoka's ramen off the list. I think many just won't get that until they have it once. So brilliant. You've got me jonesing for Raku and that beef belly at Sage but most of all, I'm envious of the Aroy Thai meal. I so lament the lack of great Thai here. I think we should really start honestly working at a Vegas road trip to hit LOS with the folks that feel similarly so we can order a vast amount of menu items. Love your blog as always, Dom!

How's the project going? Still chugging away? Need to contribute some way.

Love the post. The writing is awesome and now I'm craving for a dog of which style I wouldn't even think to try!

This is one of my favorite things EVER! One visit to OC, we hit it 4 out of 5 days and Heather gained 10 lbs and freaked her OB out (was pregnant with Hayden). Turns out it was likely all water from the sodium intake. The toroniku with shio is just flat out amazing. This is what makes me just bum out whenever I have ramen in AZ. Santuoka is so good that it completely changes your paradigm and I can't go back, nor do I want to. Happy you got a couple bowls, Dom. Only wish we were there too!

Thanks for the rec, Dom! Hit it yesterday and loved it. The Italian beef was killer. Also enjoyed the Chicago dog. While the family and I really only have 1 Chicago eating trip under our belts, we've definitely gone searching for a good Italian beef here in Phoenix. As you've said, this definitely has to be our favorite. And I just can't get over how affordable this place is.

Have you had the Mirilton? Another nice salad!

Oh man. Heading to Vegas for 2 days shortly. I know Raku & Lotus were 2 stops we'd make for sure but I hadn't heard about the kaiseki menu. Seriously conflicted because we'll have the kids too. I'm sure they'd love it but $$$... Going to be torturing me now.
