Since I am just south of Cleveland, I may give the place a whirl. I looked it up. Bo Loong's Chinese restaurant. During my travels while in the military I have had Cat, Dog, Horse, Snake, Monkey, etc, etc...Even bugs. Most were delicious.

Bugs though...not so much, but they are edible.

If you are even in Albuquerque and get a jonesin for fish & chips, Two Fools Pub, an Irish-style pub has probably the best I have ever had, and an excellent selection of beers from the UK and elsewhere. I believe they have just about every Irish Whiskey on hand, too.

My favorite restaurant of all time was Belisle's in Garden Grove, Ca. It had the best home style food in ginormous amounts that I've ever experienced. Sadly, it was torn down to make way for a hotel that was never built thanks to the City of Garbage Gulch.Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners there are some of my fondest memories.

On my birthday for many years it was dinner at Sagamei-Tei Japanese Steakhouse in Westminster, Ca. always at the teppan bar. Ordered up new york steak, shrimp and scallop entrée and enjoyed sunomono, miso soup a large Asahi draft as the Chef cooked and entertained right in front of us. Some hot sake with the entrée and green tea ice cream for dessert. I was never disappointed.

As for restaurants to visit? I'd love to experience the foods Anthony Bourdain has in his world travels. It's good to have a fantasy to dwell on once in a while.

what up neighbor....

its not a fancy does not look like much at all....its on e st clair ave so nothing special really...
no ambiance'......nothing crazy but if you drop 20-25 bucks you will get some killer stuff.
i like how they serve it up....they push carts around to the tables and lift the lid for you....just point to what you want....

if youre that close i know of a couple more places you can check out....
brasa is one...its in the warehouse district...

you should check out noodle cat......its right by public square...about .5 miles east of the horseshoe casino....

first time i had noodle cat was at the west side market....they have a cool thing going in..

check out the menu

its like authentic ramen.....awesome stuff man....

you ever go to the west side market?'
its on w 25th and lorain road....

Yep, I know about the West Side Market. Pretty cool place but the neighborhood has gone to the dark side the past decade. When I first moved here, the Flats were a happening place and it went downhill really fast.

I pretty much avoid downtown as the traffic, parking and prices, stresses me out. I do have to go to the VA on MLK Thursday so I just may swing by Bo Loong's and check it out.

If you are into Hot Wings, there is a Bar & Grill on Tiedeman and Brookpark called the IceHouse that serves the best Hot Wings I have ever tasted. After ten years of experimentation, I think I am pretty close to their recipe. (They won't give it out....Damn it!)

Have you tried the NoodleCats Kim-Chi? If so, is it any good? (Hot that is)

Also in the Northfield area is a old Toy's R Us that has been converted into a Asian market of sorts. Good Kim-Chi there!

have not tried noodle cats kim chi....

there is a building called asia plaza that is not too far away from bo loon. i go there every now an again...
there is a dim sum restaurant in there too. also a grocery store and a few merchant shops...most of it is empty now.

i dont get out to cleveland too not into the traffic and people either...

i had to go somewhere on public square and it cost me $10 to park and i was not even there for 20 sucks..

i only get to bo loon maybe twice a year anymore.....

never tried ice house.....

i used to go to west side market more too but it is so damn busy cant even move around cause of all the people....all it does is stress me out now....its so packed you cant even stop to look at the stuff. you either cant see cause people are all around or if you luck out and can stop, people are pushing you forward...its a drag

i used to go there several times a year cause there is a fish market that has good prices on grouper so i would get that and i would get a falafel too....

its just too hectic anymore.....

there is a vendor there with nothing but spices, hot sauces, and extracts so that was another place i would a few different ghost pepper sauces out there.....

thats about it really...nothing else in cleveland that i think is worth going to.
i did take my daughter to the zoo today but only cause it was a pretty nice day and i figured there wouldnt be many people there.....

oh, i do like going to coventry...
there is a restaurant out there called mongolian bar b q that is amazing and a toy store called big fun that liked....i dont think big fun is there anymore....there is one in lakewood though...big fun is awesome...all kinds of retro toys.

i guess 1 more thing...
out by the airport there is a massive candy stores called b a sweety...
one of the coolest stores....current and retro candy and the place is huge

check it out

they claim to be the biggest candy store int he usa.....i dont know if that is true but it is pretty damn big and they have a lot of stuff

Showing what side of the tracks I was born and raised on with this one.......Coney Island in Port Huron Michigan......drooling all over the place just typing this and it has been well over twenty years since I have enjoyed a true "Coney Dog" slathered in Onions and mustard.

By far the best restaurant I have ever been to was Din Tai Fung in Taipei. Amazing dumplings! I was in heaven! Went there 3 times in 2 weeks. And it is cheap! My girlfriend and I spent $40 the first time when we wanted to pig out and try everything, but the next 2 times I spent around $10-$15 each. Super cheap for a Michelin Star restaurant. Anyone living in Seattle or LA is lucky to have this place in your city. How I wish I could eat there just 1 more time.

I can't remember the name of the dish, but we had these little pork dumplings in a chili sauce, and chicken dumplings you put into a spoonful of ginger and soy sauces. You then poke the dumpling to let the chicken broth mix with the sauce and ginger and pop the whole thing in your mouth. I am so hungry now

Pot stickers?
Ive never been to a restaurant with a michelin star. Its on the list though.

Hey tdawg, you know of any killer sushi joints in the area besides sushi rock? Best i have close to me is wasabi and theyre just ok.
Really looking for uni and unagi done up the right way.
Wasabi is on the low end of good.
I took lorain road home from the zoo and between cleveland and fairview i passed a few iraqi restaurants. I wanted to stop but it was 2 agains1 for bk. Go figure. They dont eat as exotic as i like.
There is an etheopian place in cleveland i want to try. Forgot the name. If you ever get into avon there is one across from walmart in the plaza called dervish...its syrian i think. Thats on the list too

Yes I think that is what they were called lol. My memory was failing me. It is just a 1-star, but damn it was delicious. And the quality for the price can't be beat. I expect the US locations to be pricier, but hopefully not too much more. Just looking at the pics on the website makes me drool.

Yeah. Its pot stickers.
My landlord said he goes to a place in michigan called the bucket of blood. I want to go there cause the name alone.
I guess it was an old fur trading joint

I like Middle Eastern food as well. And I may have thrown whatever child or wife out of the vehicle whilst moving for even suggesting BK.

But I can say I've never been a fan of sushi. It's edible and I will eat it if served for free. But I won't buy it.

The best restaurants I've been to would have to be Morimoto Napa and Bottega in Yountville. Bouchon Bakery is also really good, they have the best macaroons.

The French Laundry would be an awesome experience, the building itself is beautiful and is surrounded by lush gardens. I love Yountville.

I enjoy it but ive only had good sushi a few times. Ive known the family that owns chinatown buffet sheffield for like 15 years. I helped their 2 kids with something and did something else for a lady they know.
The mother is the sushi master but she never makes it anymore. Anyway to say thanks for what i did they put on a sushi tasting and the sushi master prepared it.
I had sushi that looked like bushels of flowers and ice cream cones along with traditional dragon rolls.
That was the best

The funniest moment at a restaurant I have ever had was at a Chinese Buffet on Ridge Road. My ex-fiance wanted desert. Vanilla Ice Cream with strawberries. She pointed out the strawberries as well.

So I got up, and got the bowl of Ice Cream and then went to the strawberries. At this point, I realized that they weren't strawberries at all, but rather baby octopi covered in a sweet and sour sauce.

I really wanted to give her a bowl of vanilla ice cream with octopi and some whip cream and a cherry on top.

So of course, when I returned with nothing more than ice cream she complained and went to get the strawberries herself despite what I told her.

People in Toledo probably heard her. EEEWWWWWWW!

There used to be a place in Austin called 'Super China Buffet.'
There were three rows of buffet. One Korean, one Chinese, and one Japanese.
The kitchen was open so you could watch the food being prepared. Nice touch.
It was about 15 bucks for all you could eat.
I used to fast for a day and then go there and get so engorged I could barely walk out.
Unfortunately, it got hit by lightning and burned to the ground.

I like making a small cup in the pepper shaker with a napkin and fill it with salt (or visa-versa), then recapping it and trim the paper. The look on peoples faces when they pick up the shaker and instead of pepper, salt comes out is priceless.
