You Want Excellent Chinese Food, Manch?

Sorry, forgot about that, Ms Bimmer…

Ok, now that I have tried quinoa, it may be time to say sayonara to rice!!! Quinoa is not bad and actually pretty good for you. Anybody else making the move to quinoa or brown rice (not bad too)???


#907

Quinoa is no rice. Can you imagine eating curry beef brisket on quinoa instead of rice? C’mon!


#908

we mix quinoa with rice.


#909

Actually, it is pretty good! I can certainly mix it with many meat dishes.

It didn’t take me long to adjust to brown rice too, and since both are healthier, out goes the white rice for good!!! Time to hit Costco for a huge bag of it…


#910

Costco has a brown rice quinoa blend


#911

Are you a fan as well???


#912

My wife tries to force on me. I prefer Rice a Roni :sunglasses:


#913

I switched to brown rice years ago. It tastes pretty good especially if you cook it in one of those Japanese rice cookers with brown rice mode.


#914

Still not a huge fan of the brown rice and it takes too long to cook. Some people mix white and brown.


#915

You mean, than San Francisco treat???


#916

Yes. I mix it with 50/50 white rice. Love it especially pilaf


#917

Really? I was concerned too (hearing a lot of people don’t like it) but it is pretty good. Yes, harder but rice is rice to me…


#918

I’d have to take away your chinese badge. :triumph:


#919

Brown rice refers to 糙米 or 紫米?


#920

Pesticides could remain on brown rice, can be hazardous


#921

糙米. 紫米 is purple rice.

My little cousin worked there one summer as a struggling college student and she said the owner was cheap as all get out. What that has to do with the food is precisely nothing, but that’s just what I think about when I hear this restaurant’s name. I see my cousin’s face twisted in that acrimonious manner, lamenting about the owner’s cheapness. :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

Totally agree. If a Chinese restaurant has 4.5 or 5 stars on Yelp then something is seriously wrong. Either the food is too homogenized or the wrong people are eating it. And I grew up in the States.


#924

Agree – I hate lines. My own cooking is decent but its not as good as top restaurants, not by a long shot. So I just time shift. Ever since we had kids, we started eating dinner at 5pm, and now waiting in line is a rarity.
