I Ate What? 2006 Eating Out Roundup
With my blog still in its infancy in 2006, there weren't that many memorable meals. But I did want to take note of a few of the dining experiences that were worth mentioning. Comfort food. Baccali Cafe and Rotisserie - Alhambra has been my favorite Hong Kong cafe since it opened in the late 1990s. My favorite Hong Kong milk tea ($2 and free refills), deep-fried chicken wings with spicy salt, beef chow fun with dry soy sauce, Malaysian roast chicken with curry rice, baked pork chop, and Korean ribs and chicken steak platters. Funnest. Cooking on a rock slab at Seol Ak San - Stanton. And they make kimchee fried rice on top of it afterward. Weirdest. You'd think it'd be the chicken knees, or the duck tongues, or the goose intestines, but I've eaten plenty of offal so I'm used to that. I had never heard of sauteed milk before though! At Macau Street - Monterey Park (Closed.). ***** 1 year ago today, Shin-Sen-Gumi Hakata Ramen - Rosemead.
