born, lived a while, currently living ... plan to continue doing so for a while yet....
somewhere, doing something....
Love it!!! The owner is wonderful, their banchan rocks, and it's some of the best Korean food in Nashville.
[it sounds as if an individual with a predetermined agenda ran rough-shod without analyzing the ground before acting.]
i hope to try Chappy's some day, but as a simple single guy i'm very satisfied with the simpler offerings of my old bud Patrick, who has reopened recently, albeit with a menu which seems to falute much lower.
also, Bro's wowed me the coupla times i went there, years ago, ultra-casual ... loved his house-made boudin.
if i had a GF (no, that's not "a gluten-free"), i'm sure we'd give his place a shot. as a bachelor, i generally satisfy myself in simpler ways....
* Peking Garden's Sunday Buffet. Whatever 20 dishes they put out that day. In one 18-month period I missed just 5 Sundays, including going home for Christmas, Thanksgiving etc.
* Laughing Man's steamed veggies / rice / salad buffet, with the mixed tamari & melted butter; dear goodness.
* Helga's Soupkettle on 21st; whatever 6/8 soups she put out on any day. And her smile.
* Grateful Breadbox: anything!; i.e. soup or salad and their hot fresh bread on the counter to go with it!
* Sunshine Grocery's tofu salad. I used to get a half-pint, lift the lid, shake nutritional yeast on top (and maybe a little soy sauce) and eat it with a spoon. [Also, their white cheese / avocado / sprout / tomato / mayo sandwiches; haven't managed to find or make the right combo since then.]
* Barbara said Iguana -- I was such a late-night regular that I had kitchen rights! When it was late enough, and food was mostly done, I could walk back there and make myself something off the steam table. Wonderful invention is possible in such circumstances....
[ others have mentioned, and I'll endorse, V/Candyland, Country Life, 12th&P (i.e. bbq shrimp, but haven't tried Patrick's yet), Schwartz's (chop liva!), Mack's (lived behind it for years; mostly ham&cheese omelets under Heavy Influence at 4am), Flying Fish/Multi-Bob (they had great pastas!), Nola's chivito ]
OH!, I forgot -- since this is the open thread:
Taco Truck alert!
In the lot of the discount tobacco store at 12th & Wedgewood is a shiny-new taco truck. Health score 100. License issued like end of Jan or Feb 2013. "Taqueria El Indio".
Tacos, tortas, sopes, mulitas, burritos, quesadillas, coupla main plates. The meats are barbacoa, carne asada, al pastor, lengua, carnitas, tripas.
Salsa verde and salsa rojo both quite respectable; i.e. wimps exercise caution.
Very pleased with my meal and will go back often. Generous tacos for 99c. A classy operation down to clamshells & plastic bags (I'll ask for no bag in the future). And muuuuch closer to home than Nolensville Road!
I had a vegetarian friend who while she lived in Nashville always went to Checker's for their fries.
But I hesitated before posting re: a chain and Nashstu beat me to it!
p.s. blvd is Arnold Myint's new French bistro into which Cha-Chah morphed. Pretty good!
I have plenty of love for Pizza Perfect.
Last few years never get anything but their Sicilian though....
I've read in depth on authentic ramen and would like to try it, in Tokyo, some day.
If this stuff is anything like the real deal, then thirteen bucks is WELL within reason.
If someone (who has no conception of what's involved) thinks that price is too high, well then that means I won't likely see them there.
Swirls before Pine . . . .
