Re: “Coupe D’état

Dimly lit?
NOW you tell me, I always thought my camera was having technical issues when I was inside the Red Room, now I finally find out it was a shortage of elecricity. Darn. All of these new places are just plasticky things that look like they were ordered from Amazon and delivered overnight. None of them have the ratty ambiance or the intellectual atmosphere of the Red Room where horrible piano players could pass themselves off as Glenn Gould just having a bad day, or where people whose frontal lobes had been burned away by decades of bad chemicals could make poetry presentations...

Hopefully you looked closely at everyone person profiled ... look again.

Re: “Coupe D’état

Instead of whining, why don't you name some non-white-dude bartenders, describe what they do, where they do it, and suggest to the author that they be profiled.

Re: “Coupe D’état

All the bartenders worth profiling are white dudes, huh?

Re: “Kababeque: Curry College

Kababaque is owned by the same people who own Saffron, and the high quality shows. It's my go-to, for deliciousness, speed of service, and a really huge selection of vegetarian options.

Re: “Manna From Heaven: Holy Chow

Heather, why must you throw in left wing/progressive unproven hate speech into an otherwise great review about one of the best things to eat in the Old Pueblo? How about just staying on topic?

Re: “Outside the Box: Veg in a Box

There is a mistake in your article: Veg in a Box did not take over the space where "Urban Fresh, another vegan joint on Pennington Street, left off". Urban Fresh is next door, at 73 Pennington. Veg in a Box is at 75 E Pennington, in the spot the used to be Dizzy G's.

Re: “Kababeque: Curry College

Went there the other night and despite the plastic cutlery and styrofoam containers, the food was excellent. Portions were plentiful and the naan was fresh, warm and tasty. Reasonably priced and very friendly service. A local place to stop in for a delicious meal.

Re: “Foods of the Philippines

There are as many ways to make Filipino food as there are Filipino cooks. I've had pork and chicken adobo that ranged from the meat tasting as if it had been boiled in plain water, to it being so salty and overloaded with garlic and vinegar that you couldn't eat it. All in all though, it's a great cuisine, and Filipinos are amongst the friendliest folks on earth.

Re: “Foods of the Philippines

That's usually the customary options. Beef, chicken and pork. You'll be lucky to get beef in the Philippines ,so still confused about that comment. They had everything that you'd get in the Philippines however, eating adobo for example in the Philippines is quite tasty. The pi pple cook there food all on high so it has a different taste to it- not bad, I think better. Anyways that's just the job of critics tho ,to criticize. Also, depending on what region you're from or province it can have a different taste to it and not everyone will enjoy that adobo from Manila like that in Cebu. So really it all depends. You can't please everyone.

Re: “Caridad Community Kitchen: Caridad Case

I love this article and what it is doing for those in need. In cooking flavoring is key to cooking, using spices, herbs, etc. Flavoring is key for anyone to enjoy a meal. I am hoping this organization is making use of this key item in cooking.

Re: “China Szechwan: The Other Menu

I too love the food at this place. I lived in this region of China and their Chinese menu offers dishes that you don't find often outside of cities with a significant Chinatown. Sadly, I have stopped going because it is maddeningly slow. Every time I have I ordered takeout they are 30-40 minutes off of their estimated pick-uptime. Expect long waits in the restaurant as well - I have waited over an hour after food was ordered.

Re: “Kababeque: Curry College

This place looks great and I'll try it, but, the campus area is "chain-riddin" for a reason. The kid's are the "Chipotle Generation" or anyplace that has light beer and hot wings. They were raised that way. Anything that's easy to shove in your mouth while texting or playing video games. Sitting down to a table with knives and forks where the meal is the main attraction? Forget it!

Re: “China Szechwan: The Other Menu

To say this place is slow is the understatement of a lifetime! Ordered soup on a Wednesday summer evening (to go). Had called in the order, too. Got there and still had to wait 45 minutes!

Re: “China Szechwan: The Other Menu

Gee's Garden and Jun Dynasty also offer most of the Szechuan dishes you mentioned, and others including fuqi fei plan, yuxiang eggplant, dumplings in chili oil and water boiled dishes. All have previously been reviewed by the Weekly, though most of those reviews were done pretty weakly. In my opinion, Jun Dynasty is the best of the three, and the most consistent. Still, one of the major problems with "authentic" Chinese restaurants is how inconsistent they can be, depending on who the cook is and how long they stick around.

Re: “Com Tam Thuan Kieu: Not About Pho

They have decent rice porridge at China Pasta House for ($0.99)! :D Now I just need to find a place that sells youtiao.

Re: “China Szechwan: The Other Menu

I've been here several times and love it. I love the Szechwan cuisine (as well as Hunan) and this is authentic and very welcome.
