Sorry you have to deal with idiots sending you emails, don't let them bother you. It's notable that they do it either driving away or through email, it's like they want a confrontation but are too afraid of a confrontation.


Yeah, those Spam comments are sometimes really weird Jason. On the bright side; it's not a common occurrence. Hope all is well!


That sisig looks good!! Racism in any form makes me sad. Glad you found a positive way to deal with it. My wife cut my hair, so no mullet but it might look a bit strange 😳.


The Missus is much too anxious to get the green light to cut my hair RD.....the only thing is; She would have to use Frankie's shears..... I think R&B makes the best sisig in the MM area.


Sorry for your encounter with the mentally ill person. Sounds like the Sisig made you feel better anyway. And now I'm craving it. I no longer live in Mira Mesa, but have noticed a place near Stater Brothers in PQ, Orient Valley, that I'd like to try. They seem to be closed for the quarantine though. Edit: Looks like they have a limited menu for takeout available.


Sorry to hear you got a ridiculous message. I miss the days when Gmail actually gave spam recipes in the spam folder. Food looks great! I wonder when they'll open Max's Restaurant up there. Have you been to EE Nami yet? The tonkatsu looks good. I hope I can try them soon.

Btw, thanks for letting me know that Mien Trung was open in your other post. I had BBH with banh nam recently and it hit the spot.


am surprised at how much spam has decreased with this pandemic...glad you got to check out more eateries:)


I've heard of K&K Jan, if that's the place...if you check them out let me know what you think!

Glad you enjoyed Mien Trung Elle. As for EE Nami - here's a preview:

I have noticed more Spam text messages Kat....really weird. Hope all is well.


That sisig looks really good. I might get Mr. C to get me some. Nothing to do with food but I gave him a faux-hawk haircut the other day.


It was decent TFD! The Missus is much too anxious to attempt to give me a haircut.....using Frankie's shears!


The tonkatsu in your preview pic for EE Nami looks sooo good! I made chicken katsu recently, and while it wasn't very pretty, it tasted good AND the breading stayed put!


Nice Sandy! Did you brine the chicken before breading? That really help the moisture and texture!


No, I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper. Will try brining next time - thanks for the tip.


Hi Sandy - Here's what I have from a previous post:

"For one pound chicken breast; cut and pound to an even 1/3 inch thick, then brine is a solution of 1/4 cup kosher salt, 1/2 tsp granulated garlic, 1 quart water for 15-20 minutes. Make sure to dry the chicken well before initiating the breading process.

You'll find that you won't need to add much more seasoning when breading the katsu."

Have fun!


Spam email definitely is down. Many spam mills had to close when countries started issuing lockdown measures.


That's interesting Junichi, haven't been looking into that!


Does anyone look on the ground, see the red square or X there, and think that you've seen this in a Road Runner cartoon?


That's too funny Loren!
