*** Update 11/18, 0800 - The contest is closed....... there was only one person who guessed all six restaurant correctly. Congrats to Hao! The answers are all at the end of the post. And just for laughs I gave an eCup to the person who did the worst as well.
I haven't done one of these in a while....... I'll send a Peet's eCup to the first five folks who email(link upper right) me the correct guesses of the following revisits.
For the following three, list the dish and the restaurant:
1. This one is kinda hard, but not that hard......
2.. This one is the easiest.
How about some drippy yolk porn......
3. This dish used to be much better when the restaurant was under previous ownership.....
But things have been getting better as the folks making the food have been gaining more experience.
For next three, you can just name the restaurant.
4. This "little little" place used to be in a different location.
5. I've never posted on exactly this dish, but guessing the restaurant should be pretty easy.
6. OK if you can't guess this one....... well, I'm not sure what to say.....
Easy, right? That's it, get those six and be one of the first five to email me the correct guesses and you'll get a Peet's eCup..... But let me ask you, are you a gambler? Would you go double or nothing? If you guess the name of this dish correctly, along with the previous six, I'll make it two eCups...... get it wrong, and you get nothin'(be accurate - as in what kind of meat etc, or the Chinese name would be even better)....... A couple of hints, it's not from a restaurant in San Diego, and it is delicious......
I'll let things go until the morning of 11/18
Just remember, send me the guesses via email, a valid email so if you're correct I can send youthe Peet's eCup. One guess per email address please.
OK, here are the answers:
#1 - It's Beef Sate Noodle "Dry" from Tan Ky Mi Gia.
#2 - The Kaloko Moco from Island Style Cafe......
Everyone who played got that one right. At first, I was a bit apprehensive about a Loco Moco with a crepe as it's base..... but here it really works.
#3 - Is The Noble Chef.
#4 - Is Sieu Sieu BBQ, which literally means "small small".....
I had gone to Barbecues Galore to try and purchase more Ono Kiawe Charcoal. I was told by the manager of BG, that a "well known" BBQ Manufacturer had bought the company and then took the charcoal off the market because it was competing with items in their product line. I'm not going further than that since I can't confirm this info. I may try purchasing the charcoal on the Ono Charcoal Website.
#5 - Is Yakyudori Ramen and Yakitori.
#6 - Is of course Pizzeria Bruno. Everyone who played got this correct as well.
That last dish is Mi Zheng Rou, also called Fen Zheng Rou..... rice steamed pork. More on that in a later post.
My thanks to everyone who humored me and played along!
