We just had our own neighborhood staple close recently as well.

It's sad to see these gems disappear.

I don't understand your categories. Should the second Double-A's be Single-A's?

Eun Sol Yu was the original owner with her dad, Young Yu. Hence "Sol's."

(Giggling at this: JM couldn't bring himself to chow down on seaweed because, well, he just doesn't like it. :-))

Grammar pet peeve: "Comprise" is an active, not passive, verb. The proper statement would be, "The Hong Kong tomato sauce comprised..."

If you wanted to use the passive voice, "composed" would be the appropriate choice.

We try to make excuses to get to that side of town. We love their spicy green beans and tofu. The green beans are one of the few times that Todd gets excited about a green vegetable.

Oh man, I love the fried chicken baked rice mozzarella curry. I am seldom way the fitch out at Cahill Main, but when I am, this is where I stop for food.

I took a bunch of classes at the Fluno Center. They include dinner in your class fee. The view is spectactular. It has never been too crowded. I really like the first floor breakfast buffet. It is included in the course fee, but the general public can purchase for $12. All my classmates raved about the bacon.

Thanks! Sounds great; we wouldn't blog it (since it's not Dane Co.) but have heard good things.

You need to check out the new place in Columbus, Bistro Racian on James Street. Old school Mom and Pop Italian.

Their smoked brisket sandwich made with melted smoked gouda and crispy fried onion strings is amazing.

I so hope this place succeeds, because the gentleman who owns it seems very sincere and enthusiastic. Equally, I absolutely love that he gave corporate the boot and struck out on his own!! I was hoping to see A+s from you both, but alas...I fear the ghost of Arby's past unduly influenced your grades, given the value and descriptions of the food (aside from the standard fries).

Did they close for good? Sad to not be able to go get lunch there I miss them a lot.

We're still around, just a little more casual. A new post (Silver Eagle) will go up August 3, and more to come after that.

Glad you enjoy reading, thanks for coming back!

My favorite thing to get there is the Blind Special. It's never let me down and is always delicious. And CHEAP! Since I like to be surprised.

This looks SO. GOOD. Especially the Nachos and the tacos. I might have to run over there :)

The cheese on a Dise Burger is American. Just in the interest of accuracy ;)

I've been for bloody's (meh), but the best thing about this place is the name of the apartment complex it's in..........."The Dude Abodes".

I'm amazed this place has lasted this long considering the prices and underwhelming flavor or texture of most of the products I've tried. I'm not sure who keeps them in business since they're empty or nearly so every time I go by.
