The Spud Spot, Harvey, LA Report #242

Do you like baked potatoes?  Of course you don’t.  Unless you’re not normal.  If someone brought you just a plain, baked potato, you’d say, “What the hell is this?  Put some STUFF in it”!  At least some butter!  Even better some butter, sour cream and chives!  Even better-er, some butter, cheese sauce, cheddar cheese, chives,… Continue reading The Spud Spot, Harvey, LA Report #242

China Doll, Harvey, LA Report #226

Probably my last five times eating Chinese food it’s been at the Empress of China.  I love that place and have been kind of stuck on it.  I’ve always heard good things about China Doll.  I tried it once so long ago I couldn’t remember if I liked it or not, so I figured I’d… Continue reading China Doll, Harvey, LA Report #226

Ditali’s, Harvey, LA Report #175

  My dining partner and I were in the mood for pizza.  I’m ashamed to admit it, but we were headed to Sicily’s Pizza.  That’s right.  The cheap, buffet chain that puts out all you can eat pizza and a few other things.  They happened to be closed.  Maybe the good Lord was looking out… Continue reading Ditali’s, Harvey, LA Report #175

Boomtown Bayou Market Buffet, Harvey, LA Report #121

  I feel like my culinary standards are really dropping.  Yesterday I ended up at a Chinese buffet (Report #119) and today I end up at a casino buffet!  In fact, I wasn’t even going to do a report on it UNTIL I had the bread pudding.  I instantly realized I had to let the… Continue reading Boomtown Bayou Market Buffet, Harvey, LA Report #121
