Kim, wasn't this fun? Are you sure you haven't had eel in some sort of sushi roll? You might not have even known it. It's quite tasty.

Pho is a Vietnamese soup, sort of like siamin or ramen. This is fun and am also stealing it :)

Kim [TypeKey Profile Page]:

Girasoli, that sounds good; I'd definitely try that.

Krista, there is no way I've eaten eel - they really gross me out.


I have had the abalone and lobster thermadore, obviously prior to my kosher days. You need to get moving on these.

Nice list. You'll have to try more of the Asian soups. I really like Tom Yum. Nice and spicy. Pho is everywhere here in Seattle.

Kim [TypeKey Profile Page]:

Marta, I definitely think the Asian soups and I could be friends :). Just no opportunity - lots of restaurants in the area, but I had going in cold, not knowing what/how to order.
