Re: “Winning by a Nose

And, Annie wins best new reviewer…by a nose. (It was a photo finish with Alvar Aalto and Aaron Aardvark.)

Re: “Winning by a Nose

Brussels sprouts with chorizo and apple butter NOT a new flavor combo?!? This is news to me. Why wasn't I notified?

Anyway, excellent first effort at your new publication, Amber.

Re: “Winning by a Nose

Sorry, totally used the wrong name in my previous post. Meant to say well done Andrea. And yeah, try to insert some jokes about horse junk or any other animal's genitalia whenever convenient. Thanks.

Re: “Winning by a Nose

Would it have killed you to include a joke about horse junk, Angela? You're at the Mercury now. D-up.

Re: “Winning by a Nose

Well done Allison. While I enjoyed some of Chris's long-winded prose, I enjoyed your straighforward and to the point review even better.

Re: “Boxer Enters the Ring

There's an ATM right in the restaurant, if I'm not mistaken. The cash-only thing shouldn't be too much of a problem for people.

Re: “Boxer Enters the Ring

Way to drop that gem a week before Onstad's last column.

Re: “Boxer Enters the Ring

Mr Onstad-
What do you mean by toothsome- did the food taste bad? It means tasty when applied to food, or sexually attractive when applied to a woman...

Re: “Boxer Enters the Ring

Went last weekend. I enjoyed it more than my Japanese wife.
She complained the chasu pork tasted more like bacon than it should.
She liked the way they did the eggs though.

Re: “Boxer Enters the Ring

Went once, likely won't go again. GOOD: Service, red miso ramen. KINDA GOOD: Tots. BAD: a) cash only b) no to-go c) two in my party got the shittake shoyu, and it was basically like a bowl of soy sauce (lukewarm soy sauce in one case). The tonkotsu was acceptable, but nothing special.

Re: “Boxer Enters the Ring

Tried this place out for the first time a few weeks ago. Went straight for the tonkotsu ramen as any respectable ramen lover would. The broth was deep and rich, among one of the better I've had outside of Japan. I also appreciate the lack of an add ons menu because there are certain items like egg, pork and green onion that should just be expected to be in a bowl of ramen without having to pay extra to add them.

The one disappointment was the noodles. While cooked well, they seemed too thin and wheaty. That would be the one aspect they could tinker with, but overall Boxer is a welcome substitute for the now defunct Wafu.

Re: “Who Loses an Italian Standoff?

Bunk's menu standbys are delicious, but Bunk has seemed a bit uninspired over the last year or two. Used to be 4 or 5 daily or weekly special sandwiches on the menu on top of the usual selections. Now it seems like there's only 1 or 2 if that and then the aforementioned kiddie fare. C'mon Bunk. Step it up.
