Have you been to Chinatown to eat before? What are your thoughts of Chinatown? If you've been, which restaurants have you been to and what are your favorite dishes?

there's only a few places I go to -- but I go to them regularly. I go to Penang and Rangoon. I used to go to a couple of Vietnamese restaurants, but that was a long time ago.

Is there a particular restaurant that you've been wanting to try in Chinatown but never have? Generally, what are your favorite foods?

I want to find a good place to get some Vietnamese bun mei (spelling?) and good Vietnamese egg for Chinese, there are dishes that I like, but I think names are different in Philly than what I know back home in Vegas. I've tried to order them sometimes, and it's never what I hope it to be.

As we are looking for the adventurous and those willing to try anything once tell us what is the strangest thing you've ever ate.

I don't know if I can eat ANYTHING, I will try. I've become more picky as I've gotten older. for example, strangely, I can't eat chicken or any kind of fowl. I'm originally from the Philippines, so I have had a few "weird" things like baloot (spelling?) - fertilized/developed chick egg; and pork blood stew...but, I have become a little "Americanized."

Would you consider yourself a lover of Asian food? If so, what country's cuisine do you love the most and why?

yes, I am! when i was younger, i dated a guy whose family owned a Chinese restaurant, and his mom was a great chef. if his mom makes it, then Chinese is my favorite food :) I love Korean food, but only select dishes (kal bi, bulgogi; bim bim bop (sp?); chap chae; scallion pancake); select Vietnamese dishes (bun mei, charbroiled pork, egg rolls); I love Japanese food; I like Thai, Burmese, and Malaysian. but I'm sure there are many dishes and cuisines I haven't tried yet.

What's the main reason you wish to join this group and what would you like to gain from this group that will make your time worth while?

I want to try different Asian restaurants. I've had great luck with Asian foods in Philly except for Chinese. I want to find a really good Chinese restaurant. not just "outrageous" food, but really good, yummy Chinese food.


hi, I'm kay. i love Asian food back home (Nevada), but since I came to Philly over a decade ago, I haven't really gone exploring. this should be fun!
