To be honest, I kind of like the decor.  The menu sounds horrid, though.

That's it.  I'm going to open a restaurant that serves Top Ramen for $5 a bowl.  (Shrimp flavor packet will be $6)  But the disco ball and late hours will totally make it worth your cash.

lilplatinum: TuteTibiImperes: Kosher-Vietnamese fusion?  I'd give that a try.

Kosher Japenese close enough?

Why not?  There's kosher Chinese (and it's very good).

I was under the impression that Kosher Chinese joints were fairly common in NYC (and LA) and that the food was mostly Americanized Chinese, but prepared in a Kosher style.  The Japanese/Kosher place with the kickstarter seems to be trying for some fusion between the two, and oddly enough, at least according to the kickstarter page, they aren't Kosher (though they say it will be prepared according to Kosher principles, perhaps they just didn't want to pay for the licensing and the separate dishes, etc, required?)

TuteTibiImperes: dittybopper: PainInTheASP: Now I'm hungry for chicken.  Or Doritos.  Or soup.  I should pick up a pizza on the way home.

Kimchi pizza.

That actually sounds really good.  Maybe with some bulgogi on top as well.


Kimchi goes great with cheese or italian sausage pizza.

Also, try a burrito with rice, kimchi, bulgogi, and lettuce.  Optional: dill pickle spear, a bit of mayo.

Give the man a slap on the back for honesty, if nothing else.


Makes you wonder if they even eat their own food.

The Korean fusion taco trucks haven't quite made their way out here yet.  That does sound like something that would be fun to try at home though.

I've never gotten into pho or ramen at restaurants because it's so cheap/easy to make. I do get a healthy portion of rice, kimchi, bol goki beef and house ginger/chili sauce for $5 once or twice a week at Pike Place though...

Pho's only five or six bucks a bowl, isn't it?

I tried making my own at home once. Once. (It was kind of OK, but not really the same and I probably spent a tenner or more on ingredients. Couldn't find skirt flank or tendon anywhere, either.

I once suggested to my Vietnamese sister in law that pho was easy to make. Once.

Do you love living in a city that can't even have a parade without several people being shot?

(But I do love going to Bachannals and drinking some wine, listening to live music and eating whatever tasty food is being prepared that day)

oh, it's one of those "read it for five minutes and then starve until lunch" threads.  Great.

hey... you underestimate the numbers of parades we have.  i think it's just, once a year, there is a parade where a bunch of people get shot.  but, that's like 1 parade out of 100.

/ bachannals is great.  didn't mean to knock brooklyn, though it appears that i did... meant to knock the nonsense food that's getting popular.  it was a fun trend to go to historically poor people food like hoof to snout, etc (which has been the norm in louisiana forever) but doing real poor people food, like doritos and whatever is just obnoxious.

In every restaurant I've worked in the entire back of the house is from Mexico or Central America. How is there not a glut of Mexican/Italian/Chinese places? Some of those Sunday brunch hangover dishes they prepared using what was on hand in the kitchen with a little extra taste of home were nothing short of divine.
