The story of your friend is quite amazing Jake not because she was coughing for two weeks but rather she was able to consume two whole stinky durians. When I eat too much soon dubu, my bowels to get irritable from the spices. Now I suppose this is why koreans drink brown tea and shikeh after the meel and put their turnips in ice water to provide cooling effect to counter the spices? I believe in the hot and cold not as a something that affects your body but to bring balance to your food. If you eat nothing but spicy fried foods which are hot and dry, one needs something cooling and acidic to balance that out, to cut the grease.
didn't that space used to be Picasso tapas restaurant?

I've eaten a couple times back when it was Lu Ding Gee and I was a bit disappointed with the eel rice as you. It looks fabulous as it did on the cover on of Los Angeles magazine but that was about it. I recall liking the duck quite a bit if in you case if it's served cold thats no good at all. I've also heard other reports from those who didn't call in advance where still able to procure a duck which makes it suspicious. However, I believe in traditional fashion, ducks are prepared once or twice a day in china..... so perhaps having people call in allows them to keep a tab on how much duck production is needed to satisfy the diners for the day.

Ed, just fyi, the Rowland Heights location is not the original location. The original location is either the one in MP or the SG location, but I believe it to be the MP location. The RH location opened much after the other two locations. For whatever reason, the RH location has a different name, in Chinese. It is 潮樓 (chiu lau; in Yale romanization), meaning "Chiuchow Palace". The other two locations are called 避風塘 (bei fung tong), meaning "Typhoon Shelter". I am uncertain if there is an actual Typhoon Shelter restaurant in HK, but the nonetheless the name is a kickback to the Typhoon Shelter crab in HK and the actual typhoon shelters themselves.

Kirk, can you do a post on Viet restaurants in the SGV or OC? Restaurants that serve more than just the usual pho, bun, com tam, and cuon (rolls?)? Don't know where to go up here for items like that crab noodle soup, bun mam (seen it in SD, but not here), fried squid.. etc etc. non rice, pho, and spring rolls establishments in the SGV

Looking forward to your Dean Sin World report. Have been wanting to try that place out! Have you tried Mama Lu? There's a lot of Mama Lu proponents for their XLB... I'm not one of them... but I'd love to see h ow it ranks in your XLB research database.

BTW, does anybody know why their English name is "Giang Nan" while the Chinese name is "Deyue Lou"??? I'm thinking Giang Nan is for 江南. So why not call it Jiang Nan 江南 in Chinese? Conversely, since it is 得月樓 in Chinese, why not call it Deyue Restaurant... or something like that?

Urasawa is by far the most memorable post on your blog for me. I've enjoyed your blog for years and hope to enjoy it for years more to come. Thank you for all you've given us. Happy New Year and btw, Panda Country didn't make the top 10?

Kirk, I've been to the Shau Mei Kang Kang on both Garvey and Garfield in Rowland Heights, but have never ventured to order anything off the menu. I've always opted for the 3 item boxed food. Kudos to having the guts to do so! BTW, I affectionately call this place the $5 date. Cheap and feeds you and your girl for $5 each.
