Topeka is a shithole, but the Indian restaurant downtown, just diagonal from the capital is good.

Looking for recommendations for a long layover in Frankfurt.

I'll be there next Wednesday (20th). I land at 9am so can probably be in the city by 10am (no visa, no luggage). My flight leaves at 5pm so I can leave for the airport at 3pm, which gives me 5 hours.

Things I want:
Breakfast
Apfelwein
Grüne Soße
Handkäse

Suggestions?

Dammit, I can't remember the name of the place I went to there. It is a little out of town though so probably not that useful.

I'm off in holiday to Sevilla next weekend. Anyone got any recommendations there. Tending towards the cheaper/less formal end of things, but nowhere not considered.

Any recommendations for Houston, TX would be hugely appreciated. I'm there for work next week Friday and Saturday. Anything mexican-style and Texas barbeque would be amazing.

I'm staying in the downtown area and won't have a car so anything I can take a short taxi to (or walk) would be really nice.

I've never been in Texas to begin with, you tell me it has amazing Vietnamese I'll eat that too. Also I'm not from the US so I think Texas I think Mexican food and bbq.

I'm too long gone from Houston to answer on Tex Mex at all. Gatlin's was always the best BBQ, but it's outside the loop. There are a handful of places listed on the top 50 if you want to check what's close to you. If I had money to burn, I'd hit the Tejas Chocolate Craftory out in Tomball. https://www.texasmonthly.com/food/t...oints-in-texas/

Going to be in downtown LA, near Skid Row, in a few weeks, for about 24 hours. Looking for brunch/lunch, light early dinner, and nightcap places.

Thanks for the link! I went to the Pit Room which was super delicious; the brisket and especially the chicarrones with hot sauce were amazing.

Is there a Paris thread? There's gotta be one - im phone posting and couldn't find one. In case there isn't, I am going to be there in June solo for work for a week. I dont plan on being in paris proper all that much since it is 15 km or so away from where I'm going to be working 12-16 hours a day.

I will make a point of making it in for at least one meal before or after the 5 days of lovely days. Is there any place I MUST go for a meal, in your opinion? Assuming I dont need to make a reservation 9 months in advance, of course.

Budget is, let's say, $500 for food and drink. That is easily more than I've spent on any meal in my life, but I may never make it back there, so gently caress it.

Yeah sure. All the better stuff is a lil farther down in downtown if you don't mind taking a lyft or something (e scooter)

Walk down the Gaslamp. It's literally in front of the center. gently caress the Gaslamp. Expensive and garbage. Anyway, my suggestions would be:

Hodads for Burgers( 945 Broadway, San Diego, CA 92101) Just burgers Fries and Shakes. HYUGE.

Pokez Mexican food (947 E St, San Diego, CA 92101) lots of vegetarian options here if that's you're thing

Sushi2 (135 Broadway, San Diego, CA 92101) Cheap, yummy, and pretty good happy hours

Broken Yolk Cafe (355 Sixth Ave, San Diego, CA 92101) decent american breakfast

Lolitas (202 Park Blvd, San Diego, CA 92101) every tourist comes here during comic-con. It's good, there's better in my opinion. It is just a short walk away from the Center tho.

If you want something familiar there's a Cheesecake Factory all the way down Harbor drive. Just walk out the center make a left and keep walking.

Thanks. I ended up getting food up in Carlsbad with friends on Tuesday, and haven't left the hotel since. Slipping out for food tonight, probably either going to sushi2 or Hodads.

Just a heads up, Hodads has an "all you can eat special" for $99 buckos. No sharing. All the burgers and fries you can eat. They laugh when I ask about it

I ended up going to Hodads, I've had a lot of burgers the past few weeks since the weather turned and it was easily the best I've had of the season (outside the ones I made myself grilling in the rain, obviously). Thanks for the rec.

Going to be in Montreal with for the F1 race with my not-very-adventurous father, staying in Le Plateau Mont Royal. Any recommendations for places that would be good and that will be possible to get into this weekend?

I'm heading out to Seattle next week with some friends and will be staying in the Capitol Hill area. We are also doing a day trip to Victoria, Canada. Any restaurant/bar recommendations for both places?

lavaca
Jun 11, 2010


Some stuff you can do without leaving Capitol Hill:
The Pine Box for beer. They are always pouring a large number of interesting beers. For European beers, try Quinn's.
Capitol Cider for cider. I think it's 100% gluten free if you care about that sort of thing.
Canon for ridiculous cocktails. It's worth visiting just to look at the Captain's List. For unpretentious bars, maybe try the area around Denny & Olive.
Cafe Presse for simple, delicious French food.
Dino's Tomato Pie for delicious pizza in a unique setting (think paper plates and Lambrusco on draft). Same owner as Delancey in Ballard.
Stateside for fancy-pants Asian food that won't make you feel like a sucker like a lot fancy Asian restaurants do (if you want non-fancy Asian food, take the streetcar down to 12th & Jackson or drive out to Edmonds or Bellevue).
Molly Moon's for ice cream, assuming the line doesn't go out the door and around the corner.
Bok a Bok for fried chicken.
Lil Woody's for Seattle's best cheap burgers or pretty good not-so-cheap burgers.
Dick's for delicious burgers after 10 PM (they don't taste as good unless it's late and you've had a few drinks first). Yes, that's where Sir Mix-a-lot's posse went.

I have fewer opinions about Victoria.
The Drake probably has the best selection of BC beer on the island.
Fishhook does local seafood with Indian flavors.
Pizzeria Prima Strada does great Neapolitan pizza.
Blue Fox is probably still the place to stand in line for brunch in Victoria.
If you want to do high tea, there are many choices that are cheaper than the Empress. Maybe try White Heather or even the restaurant at Butchart Gardens.

Which way to the sandwich bar
...ladies?


Was back in Baltimore recently. The Telltale in the Marriott Delta downtown is an incredibly surprising pleasure, with, somehow, the best crab soup I've had in the region. In a hotel restaurant. I know.

Tio Pepe's is also incredible, bearing its ~25-50$ entree price in mind. Best spanish food in the region, imo.
