yes, i have read all threads back to january, but i still have a few questions, ok? 2 nights in town, second night (sat)is at herb farm (so much dissent among the ranks, have to see for ourselves). staying at the sorrento, so need a fri night meal ... leaning towards omakase at either shiro's or saito, also considering etta's. thoughts? why are people down on wild ginger, love the cookbook? and what's with flying fish, thumbs up or down at the moment? don't want french, and can get really decent malay satay type here. see, i did my homework! by the way,convenience is a factor to consider, don't want to traipse too far.
