We were dining several months back and asked our waiter where he liked to eat when he wasn’t working.  One of his answers surprised me – Ah Ma’s Taiwanese Kitchen, in Midtown.   I wrote down the name (and hid it in my heart).   I had seen it before, but it had never really registered. […]


Pho Dai Loi 2 is another place that has been on “the list” for almost ten years.  Pho Dai Loi (implied 1) is in Jonesboro and there is a Pho Dai Loi 3 in Duluth, but I can’t find anything only that declares an affiliation.  But number “2” is the one that I’ve been supposed […]
