Thanks everyone for the great recommendations. A quicky summary of what we accomplished in the week + that she was in San Francisco:
1) She cooked homemade chicken enchiladas/chicken mole/two kinds of Mexican rice/zucchini with fresh garlic; We brought a cake from Galley (sp) Bakery in South San Francisco.
2) She cooked homemade Chili rellenos/more Mexican rice/salpican/ frozen marshmallow & peach dessert parfait pie (or something like that.
3) Alborz (Thanks LimsterFest & Fatemeh)
4) Thai Temple (Thanks Tida and Thanks Arlene for the digital pictures for my sister)
5) Paradise Pizza
We wanted to go to Lotus Garden, Memphis Minnies, and Cafe Colucci badly, but my sister was committed to hanging with our Mom, too.
Hopefully, she will get Cincinnati in the "Chowhound mood" with my help. She knows we will never be lost for great ethnic restaurants when she comes for a visit thanks to the hard work (someone has to do it) of all you great,wonderful, and fantastic Chowhounds out there.
