Salem, OR Recommendations and Reviews?

tubagurl | Jun 26, 200710:02 PM     4

I've lived in Salem since November, and am still looking for great food around here. I've been exploring quite a bit, here are some of the places I've tried:

Thai Beer: decent, can be hit or miss, excellent Tom Kha Gai soup
Siam: quite good, better than Thai Beer
LanXang: if you can get past the neon yellow walls, it's really tasty Thai/Laotian
Wild Pear: Probably my favorite restaurant so far. Excellent food. Downtown has fantastic lunch, River Rd has very good dinners, homemade deserts, and a nice atmosphere
Morton's: I wasn't very impressed. it was good, not great.
Old Europe Inn: I was looking forward to trying it, but it was overly salty. Atmosphere was nice, and I want to go back for a 2nd try
Amadeaus Cafe: Quite good. Odd location, great food
Apizza (Stayton): Amazing. Beyond words spectacular pizza. Really wonderful
Jr's: Fantastic tortillas, everything is very homemade. Tastes like mexican street food. Great!
Capitol Dog: interesting Russian/Ukranian food

Places I want to try:
DaVinci
J James
Wooden Nickel (Silverton)

What else? What else is worth trying? Where can I find more authentic mexican food? what about GOOD chinese food? I wasn't impressed with Kwans. What about seafood? Lunch places? Sushi?

Help a new Salem-ite out!
