Hilarious about the A/C "discussion" - reminds me of a visit from my parents. One neighbor asked why grandpa was yelling at my daughter. I had to explain that he wasn't yelling, it was his normal way of speaking.

I guess every Chinese restaurant outside a certain market has to offer the "classics."

The Food Detective

Wow, at least you got to eat the Megamillion fish fillet. I didn't know the name of it and tried to explained it to them and they brought out a bok choy with fillet fish soup? Not worth your 75 miles drive. Try Dede's!


too bad about the food, but it is nice to try some place new :)


Hi Sandy - The tones do get your attention if you're not used to it.....

Hi TFD - Been to Dede's many times and it has never really impressed me. So what do you think they do well?

Hi Kat - Yes, part of the fun is getting there and trying a new place.


Hi Kirk! Although some of the dishes might not have been on par, your pictures sure make them look delicious.

Your "funny moment" story reminded me of an funny incident at home when I was in Jr. high. I had a couple of friends over and my Mom was in the kitchen (next room) talking to a couple of relatives. One of my friends leaned over and whispered, "Is your mom pissed or something?" I chuckled and said, "No, that's just our normal conversation voice."


Hi Carol - I always have to either remind myself or the Missus needs to remind me of that!


Hey Kirk! This place changed owners in 2015. The chef is a guy from Chongqing with 30 plus years of experience. I think it's some of the best Sichuan food in San Diego. If you have a chance, you should try it out again. As always, i enjoy your blog!


Hi Hannah - You may want to ask if it
s the cooks from the old Ba Ren. I saw one of the old assistant chefs from Ba Ren at 99 Ranch Market and he said he left FuAn and was working at Spicy King.
