We Eat all 11 Sandwiches at Paseo, in Seattle

I have been waiting for this post for years, thank you!! The Caribbean Roast pork is absolutely my favorite bite of food anywhere. My girl goes with the Paseo Press, and I agree with your assessment. The extra ham and peppers seem to blend better than expected. The scallop is the dark horse of the group, enjoyed on many occasions. Man, I just knew that smoked thigh was gonna be good, need to try that this weekend!

A Sandwich a Day: Vindaloo Chicken Naan-wich at Aria

I'm sorry to say, but I couldn't disagree more with you Pottski. There is nothing wrong with taking a familiar item and re-introducing it in a new way. Call it Indian-American fusion or whatever you want, but food is more than just tradition. This looks down right delicious! Go back to enjoying the same meals over and over again, we all like trying new things once in a while (even if they fail).

Daily Slice: Evolution of the Amore oi Mari at Pizzicletta in Flagstaff, AZ

I had a chance over thanksgiving break to visit Pizzicletta after returning to my old stomping grounds of NAU (Go Jacks!) and it was a truly awesome dining experience. Got to meet Caleb and watch him and his team work through the glass. Some terrific pies are coming out of that tiny corner location every day, well worth another visit someday. I wish him and his great team all the best!

Have You Tried Tim Tams?

@studyzone, you can pick up packages of Arnott's Tim Tams in Cost Plus World Market around Seattle. I just got some last week at the Renton Landing location. Used to be a caramel tim tam fan because that was my favorite from AU, but the chocolate variety has slowly won me over. Their a little different here, even if Arnott's still makes and sends them, but delicious nonetheless.

Is Din Tai Fung the Gold Standard For Soup Dumplings?

Ive been to the DTF in Bellevue,WA multiple times and now that the excitement has died down, you can get seats without too much waiting most days. The dumplings are fantastic, but not the best I have had. However, the rest of the menu is very well fleshed out and the soup, vegetable, and noodle offerings are what really got me hooked. i will be going back soon, as cold weather has kick started my dumpling and soup cravings.
