  1. Good review. Must try it.

    I would like the topic to simply stay UMAMI, and not an argument over MSG. Umami, largely disregarded as a concept by the western world, is a huge piece of the food culture in the east.

    Maybe, but it is quite possible that there are not that many reasonably smart people...
  4. For anyone interested, Shaw is not having problems.

    Thanks, must have glossed over that bit.

    Sorry, I didn't get the connection. What are you postulating?

    In the midst of this discussion, a new story surfaces in The New York Times about Chinese Restaurant Syndrome, as it is defined in Webster's Dictionary. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/16/dining/msg-chinese-restaurant-syndrome-merriam-webster-dictionary.html?nl=todaysheadlines&emc=edit_th_200117?campaign_id=2&instance_id=15128&segment_id=20403&user_id=113c61034e497bf178766dffc3398218&regi_id=704435630117
  8. If it's that good, then it may be worth a try. We shall see.
  9. iLox was able to get into Lakeside because almost 500 people paid UP FRONT for the service, because they were so pissed off with TelMex over the years. That's a lot of people who have not experienced what you are talking about. I still deal every single day with TelMex customers who get anywhere between -2 and 5 Mbps. That's no improvement.
  10. Based on his menus, 80p for a bowl of soup (no idea how big) is excessive. In fact, I find 60p excessive. It's soup. However, since everyone seems to be charging that these days, what's a poor boy to do. Maybe the shrimp and mussel soup, but corn soup? Nah. $180p for a tapa; a breaded croquette stuffed with goat cheese. I hope that's some whale-sized tapa. Same price for ratatouille, which to me is a side dish, not a tapa of any kind. $110 for a salad. $160p at the fancy new burger place, for a hamburger with a mushroom instead of meat, is excessive. $220 for a burger with any kind of meat is ridiculous. Decent prices used to top out at $129. Now $139-159 seems to be the standard. (Not talking about steak, although I am hard-pressed to find a steak around here worth the money anyway.)
  11. I've seen his regularly renewed menus on his FaceBook page. I am not excited about his high prices.
  12. Telephone lines have their own poles. Others "rent" space on CFE poles. So anytime there is an electrical problem in your area, it stands to reason that you could lose your iLox. Unacceptable.
  13. They are very expensive, and I have never seen one here. Nor have I set one up, so I don't know if they live up to their promise. https://www.amazon.com/weBoost-472120-Signal-Booster-Carriers/dp/B081BM99M9/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?keywords=cell+phone+signal+booster&qid=1579100613&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUFGVEc3UDhZMFpVVVAmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTAyNjgzMTIzVE02QjlXRzdKVVFMJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTA5ODcwNTkyOUJYVDg1MjBXODRCJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==

    Hello, Ukiyo-san, and welcome back. My daughter and I still discuss your Master Class frequently. I must confess I do not practice my sushi-rolls enough to become good at it. But I am now the proud owner of several grades of sharpening stone for my knives. And yet I still cannot attain the level of sharp perfection that you provided me. The thumbnail test is never good enough. Good luck with the teeth. ... Mike

    I started a topic called Umami, in case anyone wants this one to get back to the topic.
