Re: “Far East Cuisine falls a little short

Man, I can't believe that someone would get on Daniel's case. My heart hurts a little. Daniel, you're loved and appreciated :) Keep up the good work, grammatical errors and all. And LOL Michael!

Re: “Food Feedback Friday: cross-eyed, clearing out, and couscous

I've never been a huge Whole Hog fan. Years ago some of my coworkers and I did a BBQ tour, took us almost 2 years to complete. Basically we tried every BBQ restaurant within about a 15 mile radius of Little Rock. I think it did make it in the top 3 for overall satisfaction (one person usually got pulled pork, another ribs, another was a wild card, and if chicken was offered one did that). We tried to find the best well-rounded joint. I think J & J's (which then may have been T & T's? or vice versa) made the top pick. However, when I do go to Whole Hog I get the Half Smoked Chicken and am usually pleased and it's a good price for what you get. I don't touch much else other than that. Oh, and the potato salad is always good.

Re: “Greek week continues: Little Greek Restaurant UPDATE

How is this going to affect Istanbul, just 4 doors down? I'm really not all that worried as I've found their offerings to be overpriced and - eh, but it seems fairly concentrated greek/mediterranean offerings for that shopping center. I'm not complaining, just wondering.

And while I feel sad for the family that opened Cheeburger Cheeburger to see it fail, I'm glad it is gone. Outside of their shakes (especially when I was pregnant), the food abhorred me and the service was deplorable. And I was a fan of one of the outlets back in Auburn, AL when in college, this was one was no where near that good.

Re: “Fetuses, fetuses and more fetuses: Anti-abortion bills win Arkansas legislative approval

Oh, let me add, I am a 40 yo woman, that already has one child that has congenital birth defects. If I were to pursue another, it would be too late to abort based on the laws that are now being passed. I'm not saying it would be an easy choice, but it is immoral to put anyone in the decision I'd be faced with if I were pregnant again. F* it, I'll just never have intimate relations again. Thank you Arkansas!

Re: “Fetuses, fetuses and more fetuses: Anti-abortion bills win Arkansas legislative approval

I love my state, it is so beautiful. But I cannot get over the 'landscape' of the people. I'm still new'ish here. I've only been in Arkansas for about 13 years. But these debates about abortion and what-not astounds me. Rape, Incest, does it MF matter? Why is it even on the books? I'm just barely reading into all of the comments now, but I like a good debate :) And just so I'm straight, the belief in a God is a personal decision.

Re: “Food Feedback Friday: Curry, cabeza, and cupcakes

All right, it looks like I'm going to start the comments this week! Can't share anything really stellar, but did try out the new Downtown Market and Deli's Hunt Brothers pizza and I gotta say, not bad! It was better than I was expecting for essentially gas station food. Their supreme includes banana peppers and added a real nice tang. I didn't get to personally go to the market to give anymore details (it was brought to work from a coworker), but I'm curious how much deli is in their deli, as in, do they make sammiches. Anybody else in the downtown area have a chance to try this place out?

Also, I've had a love/hate affair with New Fun Ree since I moved to Little Rock and they were on Kavanaugh (that is the same folks, isn't it?). When they were there, it was hate, now I'm finding the love. This week I tried out the Singapore Chow Me Fun and Bean Curd and Vegetable soup and was blown away. I think I'm going to have to order some more of the non-standard chinese fare to really get what I'm wanting out of them.
