Many times; at one point I had visited just about every restaurant, but I'm sure some have closed, and some have opened by now. I like dumplings, especially soup buns and har gow, eggplant stuffed with shrimp w/ black bean sauce, shrimp with lobster sauce, congee to name a few.
No, not really...just would love a guide to the authentic dishes. I'm very diverse, but I tend to stay away from anything that's spicy.
The jellyfish was unusual; more texture than taste, I guess. I had a frog casserole that was not only legs, but also frog bodies...that was different.
I tend toward Chines and Japanese, and tend toward less spicy options.
I'd like to have a guide to the more traditional Asian dishes; it's hard to navigate a menu that has so many unusual options, and variations.
I love to cook, love to eat, and do both well. I really enjoying trying dishes that are traditional and local, as opposed to the "american" menu that most restaurants have. It'd be great to have a guide!
