      One of my friends ate there and said it was actually pretty good. The next time I visit Taiwan I might have to stop by :D

        Here's another 'weird' Taiwanese restaurant:

        This place serves the most rancid, rotten stinky tofu on the earth.

        I like stinky tofu and am quite adventurous when it comes to food, but I doubt this is something I'd want to experience.

              If you're in Pittsburgh and you have the money to spare (and dont mind reveling in the absolute joy of committing sacrilege), check out the Church Brew Works on Liberty St. Its a little pricey, but WELL worth it. Top notch food, microbrewed beer that is easily the best in the state, and its entirely inside an old church (the liquor cabinets are the confessional booths). I've been there about 10 times and it is without a doubt my favorite fine dining establishment on the eastern seaboard (used to be #2, but Tom Sarris' Orleans House in DC closed down :().

                I remember that place! It was in Arlington and had prime rib to die for!

                  Four of us went out for a wonderful birthday dinner for a friend at the Pinole Creek Cafe. I had the catfish special, served under chopped tomato, basil, and calamata olives, with green beans and polenta. I'm always skeptical of catfish, as it tends to be bony, but I couldn't find any bones in my fat and tender fillet. For appetizers, we had fried calamari, mini pot stickers, and coconut shrimp with four dipping sauces. The calamari is not overcooked and melts in your mouth, and the sauces have a little bite without driving off the spice-averse. For desert I had a hot baked chocolate souffle with vanilla ice cream. I thought I was too full for desert and still managed to put away the whole souffle. I think I had to waddle out of the restaurant. It was soooo good. I'll be going back at least as early as April for my friends' wedding anniversary. Probably a lot sooner.

                  Here's a review from 2007 that really captures the flavor of the place:

                  http://articles.sfgate.com/2007-11-2...akes-soup-menu

                  The review is spot on about the owner being friendly with everyone and seeing each patron out. It's a very cozy place, even though it has a bright "sports bar" look. They really make you feel like family there.
