@CodyZamboni1 I liked those 2 films a lot too. I'm a fan of both Pitt and Cruise.

@vickie c Good point. Although there are many fantasy films that I do find entertaining, including all of the comic book films.

@nonstopmari Seriously, right Mari? It's crazy that a stupid silly comedy film is causing all of this.

@edmorita This is a huge loss for Sony. They lost potentially hundreds of millions by not releasing the film.

OMG....Char Hung Sut is the most overrated place EVER!!! It's like 90% bread and the bread is tough and chewy. I hate that place. Best char siu bao is at dim sum restaurants like Tai Pan or others like it where the bread is super soft and the bao oozes steam when you open it up.

 @WillL When Don Day used to be called Sarang Chae they had really good bin dae dduk. I'm pretty sure they still serve it there. I believe Jun's Cafe on Beretania serves it as well although I've never tried.

Hmm....not really digging the presentation of some of their dishes. Could look more appetizing. The vegetables in a pot is a cute idea but it's like clever for the sake of being clever and not sure if it's really necessary. The presentation of the squid ink pasta and sweet potato gnocchi isn't so great either.

 

But Melissa says the food was great so I will go try one day.

 @Grant Shindo  BYOB? Well, why didn't you say that in the first place? LOL Now I'm even more anxious to try!

1 year, 8 months ago on Late night at The Whole Ox

Reply

 @Grant Shindo  Yeah, based only on the picture, that was my "beef" with the kim chee hash. The pieces should be smaller to make a more effective dish, more like the "hash" name it bears.

 

And I while I can maybe understand the prices justified by the labor, that doesn't necessarily mean that consumers are willing to pay for his labor when they can get something similar for considerably less elsewhere. Also, other places serve "gourmet" loco mocos at similar or lesser prices with the added benefit of ambience and wait service. But I suppose the required tip at those places must also be considered as a price factor.

 

I guess time will tell if this model works for Yu or not.

1 year, 8 months ago on Late night at The Whole Ox

Reply

Hmm...I don't really see what's different about the super loco that justifies its $16 price tag. Looks pretty similar to other loco mocos that are half that price. Even if the taste is better, is it $16 good? I'm still not sold on his menu and prices but will reserve further judgement until another outing. I've only been to Yu's Whole Ox once and wasn't impressed with the quality nor the prices. But I will give this late night menu a try. That Korean hash doesn't look too appealing either.

 @islandgirlinnc I'm really hoping that the writers surprise us and that the connection between McG and Wo Fat is not family. If so, I'd be so so so so disappointed. And yes, there will be a Season 4. But the show is moving to Fridays next season.

 @808marv I don't think it has much chance for success on Friday nights, to be honest. 5-0 always appeared to be going after a younger demographic but you won't find that on Friday nights when they're all out of the house. I know for me personally the day change will make it much less accessible to watch and will probably watch a few days later on my DVR if at all. But I could be wrong.

 @Annoddah_Dave I know, right? That airport scene with Danno and his daughter made no sense to me if Dr. Asano wasn't gonna show up. I was like, okay, what was that scene all about?

 

This show needs a revamp stat. Kill Mama McG, kill Wo Fat, and let's hope Season 4 is more streamlined and focused on the 4 key characters.

@Terrysagirl You and Melissa could very well be right that the show has given itselfmover to camp. Ifnthat is indeed the case, it's really sad. I still don't think Tyler's talk show host was supposed to be annoying though. I think it was just her personality coming through.

@Amy1 Hmm I really don't recall any Chinese characters in this film. But I do know that there is a different cut of the film specifically for China so perhaps he's in that version? If you do see him in this film please respond back and let me know.
