I agree...... the 2 yum cha places in Chatswood are owned by the same people IIRC............

I think we're all just hungry as there's tons of food talk on the TMAC thread as well.

 

Apart from fast food I don't really partake in Western meals all that often. 


I like pineapple but its not the same as eating steak tongue.gif

The key to every diet.

I'm just fixin' to get dinner. Maybe it's a good thing I don't eat meat.

I used to travel to Kansas City every other week - no offense to the rest of the country, but *that* was the best BBQ I have ever had. I had pork ribs, brisket, pulled port, crown ribs, lamb ribs and my absolute FAVORITE BBQ meat in the entire world: Burnt Ends. I now travel to Dallas every couple of months, and although the BBQ is very, very good - KC is better... (yeah, I know - them's fightin' words!)

a_rec, it helps to know that Sweet Tea - while ubiquitous in the South - is generally something that is foreign elsewhere in the States.  In fact, there are many parts of the South where if you ask for Iced Tea, they assume you mean Sweet Tea and promptly serve it to you.  As you might imagine, the average Southerner who becomes used to this convention, usually experiences a bitter shock when they order [unsweetened] Iced Tea elsewhere.  In the aforementioned case, not knowing what Sweet Tea is could be considered a double insult as the establishment not only fails to follow the convention, but also doesn't know what Sweet Tea is at all.

LOL, love that you geeked out a little bit over the American food.  While we have the same dishes all the time - and still enjoy them - having a rare look at someone's first experience was delightful!  Should you ever decide to come visit the States, you must tell us ahead of time.  I'm sure one of us will be in the rough vicinity of your visit and could play host.  Just out of curiosity, what's in the Ultimate Platter?  Actually wait a tick, Ima see if I can find a menu...

 

 

Hmm, no [Collard/Turnip/Mustard] Greens?  blink.gif  Should you feel adventurous, maybe you could call ahead next time and ask them if they can fulfill a special order for you that includes Greens and Burnt Ends?  I don't think you'll be disappointed by those.

 

BTW, speaking of BBQ, does anyone else out there like burnt ends?

From a Texan and perhaps too avid fan of barbecue, I don't take any offense to your comment.  I haven't ever had any really good barbecue in Dallas.  Most of the more popular locations in Fort Worth are pretty underwhelming as well.  There are however a few hole-in-the-wall places around Fort Worth (and other areas of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex) that are very good.  

 

In my opinion though, the best barbecue places in Texas are nowhere near the big cities with one notable exception.  If you ever have the opportunity, get to Franklin's in Austin.  There's almost always a ridiculously long wait, but if you know you'll be in Austin in advance, you can set up a takeaway order.  Get a whole brisket and share it (or don't).
