We always say that Serious Eats is like a great cocktail party with lots of conversations going on in any given part of the house. Well, these Talk threads have few or—d'oh!—even zero replies as of today. Anyone have anything to say? Surely the SE community has answers and/or opinions here!

Aww. These Talk threads have few or zero replies as of today. Anyone have anything to say? Ramen in Las Vegas "A group of friends and I had been eating at Togoshi Ramen for years, and sadly I drove up a few weeks ago to find out that it is now out of business. I am still a little shaken up by this loss to the Las Vegas foodie scene—but now the goal is to find something comparable in the area...or I am always open to making it myself. Does anyone have any recommendations on ramen shops in the greater Las Vegas area—or would anyone be willing to share in their knowledge of making a good ramen broth (as for... More

Aww. These Talk threads have few or zero replies as of today. Anyone have anything to say? Saturday Night in Albany, New York? "Will be in Albany for a couple of gigs this weekend, staying in the city (with car). Looking for a low-key spot for dinner—any state gov't types have any off-the-beaten-path faves? No red sauce joints, please (meaning no offense to red sauce)..." Red-banded Tiger Fish "Has anyone heard of a red-banded tiger fish? I saw it at my local Chinese supermarket yesterday and tried to look it up online to gauge its sustainability, but didn't come up with any results. It's a light- almost white-colored fish with thick orange-red stripes on its cross section. I'm looking to... More

Nice week in Talk. Lots of topics started, and really slim pickin's for this week's QITC post. But if you've got answers for the following, dish! Eats in Japan? Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Nishinomiya, and Yokohama "Hello folks! I will soon be off to Japan for a two-week business trip. We will visit Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Nishinomiya, and Yokohama.

NYC: Hot Apple Cider near Central Park? "...Only problem is, I don't know where they sell Hot Apple Cider. I know Starbucks has that Caramel Apple Spice, but I get sick of that drink... More

Aww. These Talk threads have few or zero replies as of today. Anyone have anything to say? Sweet Breakfast Strata in a Crockpot "I need to bring some breakfast food to church tomorrow morning. What I'm thinking of is making a Apple Cinnamon breakfast strata (lots of eggs, milk, stale bread and served with maple syrup), but I have to be there at 7 a.m. and we won't be eating it until 9. Do you think it would turn out alright if I soaked in the fridge all night in my large and quite hot slow cooker and just plugged it in when I get there in the morning? Help, I need to decide quickly!" What To Do with Beef... More

Aww. These Talk threads have few or zero replies as of today. Anyone have anything to say? Chinese Tea Candy "When I was in Elementary School (a looooong time ago), one of my teachers handed out tea candy for the Chinese New Year. It tasted like a cup of strong, well-sweetened black tea, the kind they serve at Chinese restaurants. Since then, I have been searching for something similar. The search hasn't been constant, obviously, but every now and then I get such a craving for it! Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Do any of you know where I could find it, either online, or in NYC's Chinatown?" Japanese Croquettes (Koroke) "Which restaurants serve them, and which ones... More

Aww. These Talk threads have few or zero replies as of today. Anyone have anything to say? Recipe for Zephyr Burgers (Kent, OH) "When I was in grad school (Kent State, 1992-94), there was a great veggie restaurant downtown called the Zephyr. They had an excellent grain-based veggie burger that was enough for a couple of meals. The restaurant is long gone, unfortunately, and I'm looking for the recipe for the burgers. Any clues?" Happy Turkey "Pie" or Ala King "...My question is what was that recipe? I cannot find the recipe. I kept it for years, and somewhere along the way it got lost. I have googled and cannot find it.

Aww. These Talk threads—all recipe requests today—have few or zero replies as of today. Anyone have any clue as to how to make the following? Spicy Rice Cakes Recipe? "I'm looking to try and recreate the spicy rice cake dish served at Momofuku Ssam Bar, which I know is basically a spin on the Korean dish dduk bok ki, and was wondering if anyone had any ideas of recipes or places I can start.

"My aunt once brought over a huge plate of pambazos and I immediately fell in love with them. I guess they could be considered Mexican sandwiches. They're made with a type of bread called bolillos. My aunt's were stuffed with a mixture of cheese, potatoes, chorize, and crema and were slathered with a spicy red sauce. My aunt recently moved back to Mexico and unfortunately, has no idea how to work a computer.... does anyone have a recipe they'd care to share?" Help: LOTS of fresh epazote "I... More

Aww. These Talk threads have only a few replies as of today. Anyone have anything to add? Serious Efforts: Recipe for Chinese-Style Braised Rabbit "I'm thinking something like this: brown and slow cook the rabbit until the meat is falling off the bone, cool, shred meat, reduce braising liquid, reheat, and serve over noodles. I'd like to have some Chinese eggplant in there, as well as to use a can of fermented/salted black beans I have. A rich, salty, spicy, slightly sweet taste is what I'm going for. I've looked around, and I've found rabbit braises over noodles, and black bean braises with other meats, what do you all think about combining the ingredients of the latter (for instance) with...

Not a bad week! Only a couple unanswered or lightly treaded threads. Anyone have anything to add to these two? What to do with all the Chiles I got in Oaxaca? "I got Chile Tuxta (or Tuxtla), Chile Pequin, Pastilla Oaxaqueno and powdered Mole Verde. And dried jicama flowers, which will become margaritas and iced tea. Other than reconstituting the chiles and putting them in salsa, or making a rub for meat, does anyone have any ideas what to do with them? Has anyone used these chiles before?" Seafood in San Francisco: specifically halibut "Looking for a seafood restaurant in San Francisco that offers more Pacific fish, specifically Alaskan salmon and halibut.

Aww. These Talk threads have few or zero replies as of today. Anyone have anything to say? McClure's Spicy Pickles: anyone know what type of pepper? "McClure's Spicy Garlic Pickles have just arrived in Williams-Sonoma stores. Brought some home today, thinking "I LOVE pickles!" Spicy is an understatement. Granted I am not a spicy food person, but my face is melting off. They have amazing flavor, and good crunch, but the heat really sticks around. My question: anyone know what kind of peppers are in there?..." Michelin-starred restaurants in Paris: any recommendations? "I'm thinking of having lunch at a 2 - 3 star restaurant as many offer a significantly cheaper set-price lunch menu. I'm tossing up between Taillevent (old-school French,... More
