All sounds good... except the sea urchin. Try as I might, that's one food I've never learned to appreciate. I've had it twice now. Both times it tasted like bitter orange goo.

Maybe I'm getting some bad urchin.

orange?

i wonder if they had juice on them.

urchin should be briny, a little sweet, with a slight fishy (not in a bad way) flavour. i've only had it a few times, but that was when the chef recommended it because it was fresh.

i love the way sushi joints push the envelope by serving sea urchin gungkan style, topped with a raw quail egg. i mean, c'mon. they're just going for gross out or "challenging" sushi.

Honey Pig Korean BBQ, and I know that they are a 24hour place, so it makes this particular craving VERY hard to battle.

What I crave most of the time lately -- tortilla chips dipped in heated Monterey Jack cheese dip with a lot of diced jalapenos in it.

It makes you wonder if they're just messing with us. I've never been to Thailand but in discussing it with Thai waiters and waitresses I've asked how spicy native Thai food is, and I've been told Americans often order it more spicy than traditional cuisine. I have no way of knowing if this is true.

I've also been told that chopsticks are not generally used in modern Thailand, that they supply them mainly as a concession to gringo Americans such as me. I'm pretty sure chopsticks are still often used in modern China and Japan.
