Re: “100 Essential Dishes

Well, Mama's Hawaiian Bar-b-cue didn't make the list this year but as one of our spirited regulars said..nothing a week of free lunches to the office of the Tucson Weekly can't fix:)

Re: “100 Essential Dishes

Hey, I can always appreciate a differing opinion, as long as it is not along the lines of "Olive Garden is the premier spot for authentic italian food"

I have never been to Asia, but I married someone who was born in southeast asia, and she dines at these places with me!

I have tried Thai food in SF, SD and NY.. and while I am not saying we have the best I have ever eaten, I will say that it is good and I enjoy these places often. (Bai Thong, REAL often)

Re: “100 Essential Dishes

C.J. Hamm, its ok I'm kind of an odd one out here - I lived in SF Bay Area for a few years and visited Asia multiple times, so I've been spoiled with really authentic, high quality Thai :) Most places here use really poor quality oils (ie Canola) and low quality meats and veg

Re: “100 Essential Dishes

I vehemently disagree with Dylan. I think Char and Bangkok are good, and bai thong and sa'ing are excellent. Still haven't tried V yet

Re: “100 Essential Dishes

I agree with some, disagree with some. I certainly do appreciate The Tucson Weekly food writers and staff for this compilation. Gives me good ideas, since I can never think of new places to go!

Re: “100 Essential Dishes

Good list - but saying Tucson has a great Thai food scene? Are you kidding me? no no no...they're almost all Chinese chefs ≠ poor excuse for "Thai food"

Try the Kangaroo Tacos at Aussie Cantina! One of the most unique taco dishes in Tucson!

Re: “100 Essential Dishes

Sally Shemwell have you no shame by posting your "specials" at the restaurant you own? There's a reason why none of your dishes made this list….

Scarpia: Or it's possible that I've done quite a bit of food writing, have worked in the food industry and that we just happen to disagree.

Oh Yeah, the original lemon Eegee is the next best crudo cure after menudo.

LeCaves, finest glazed donut on the planet, and I've been around! (and the jellies, crullers, turnovers, cakes and pies)

Re: “Admirable Agustín

I had lunch there today. Handsome room, good service, skimpy menu, average food. I thought when Jimmy and Garret left town we would be spared these amateur/editor restaurant reviews.

Re: “In Search of the Essential Taco

I make my own "best tacos" - seasoned ground beef cooked with enchilada sauce, cheddar cheese, with thinly sliced iceberg lettuce, cherry tomatoes (cut in half), chopped onion or scallions, topped with homemade guacamole (strong on minced garlic and fresh squeezed lime juice) - all enclosed in a freshly oil heated and crispy corn tortilla shell - YUM!!!!
