Well, i just wasted about a haf hour having a great time. Doing what, reading old chowhound. I've been on this board for about a month, and about the fartherest back I had gone was the Las Tablas/Tango Sur thread. Then, this afternoon, it takes a New Yorker! to point out that a good maxwell street thread exists.
Really, like you'd think i invented the place. So, there are some really great posts back there. I'm off to Penguin as soon as possible, when do they close? by the way, near by, at kedzie, there are some great middle-eastern and persian places. also has anyone ever been to the parillada nortena? is it true notena cuisine, carne seca and flour tortillas? finally, as to the stuff about joy yee, has anyone been to hon kee, down the mall. it is a similar assortment of asian oddities, mostly excellant. and i love the way the waitresses write each item on your order on a little piece of paper.
to all that our newer to this board like me, it pays to know your history.
