Hasn't anyone eaten anything interesting recently?
I was at Tibetan Yak last night. Great stuff. We were the only folks there; it was us, the owners, and Al Gore on the projection TV. Maybe potential diners were watching the installation of the Bush regime at home.
My meal at the Yak made me wonder: I think Sripraphai, Tibetan Yak, and the late/great Tindo all use(d) tons of MSG in their food. Are chowhounds drawn to MSG, or is it just me? Do expensive, non-Asian restaurants use it? If some did and others didn't, would they be at a disadvantage?
