    There's an absolutely amazing Korean BBQ in Beijing I've been to a few times, but I really couldn't tell you what it's called, so that's not very helpful!

    You know where else they have amazing Korean barbeque?

    I feel like listing my favourite restaurants here is totally pointless, because no one else lives in Seoul. Or even bothers to visit me. Abloooooo.

    (That said there's a kimchi jiggae place called 오로지김치찌개 midway between my house and downtown that I fucking looooove.)

    I am tossing up between down low for lunch or the leaky bucket.

    The first has friendly bearded men who brew the most consistent coffee in Perth. They also do a focaccia with simple, but delicious and fresh flavours. The later do forgettable but not necessarily bad coffee but have great individual flavours for their food and the best goddamn lemon tart you can find in Perth.

    Jersey Mikes is great for a chain. I think they must put like cocaine in their meat or something.

    jimmy johns is my favorite place to get lunch actually

    cheap, the bread is delicious and they deliver so

    fuck yeah

    there is Goose the Market like ten minutes away. it's a butcher/sandwich shop. i've only been there once, and it was delicious as all hell but too expensive to be a regular thing

    A friend and I got one of their trash-can lid dishes and it took us around two hours to clear it, but we were proud we were able to!

    These are the ones I've been too. All good. I wouldn't ever really go to Bone's on the regular, and I can't afford to go to Eugene much either. Twain's food has been hit or miss for me, but I really like their in-house brews.

    Oh, and I guess I don't really think of Elmyr as Mexican, except for the specials they've been doing lately.

    Oh, and I've only been to Sushi Yoko once, 'cause I don't live all the way up there, but my old roommate's ex-girlfriend was a waitress there for a while, so we went to bug her.

    And I love the damn mini donuts at pike place.


    I have been a big fan of those donuts for a very long time. Good stuff.

    Is it the same place that makes the Texas Donuts? Cause I looooooove that place.

    Have you tried O'Shan yet? They were surprisingly good when we went there for my birthday.

    O'Shan is great but a big part of the sushi experience for me is sharing the food with friends. As my partner is vegetarian, I'm not always in a position for that.

    I think there's one nearby where I work. When we have people visiting from the home office, we usually have lunch on the company, so maybe I'll suggest going there next time.

    WTF? 4.50 for a single donut? I've had some good donuts and they've never been that spendy.

    You're basically getting 3-5 donuts worth though.

    I went to a Hawaiian BBQ chain the other day. L&L. Pretty good for a chain!

    I kinda dig fusion places. If I wanted something typical, like a burger, I'd just go to In-N-Out (which I do).

    there will always be at least one better sandwich place to go to, assuming you aren't going on a midnight drunk food quest
