    Are white people allowed to comment about good Asian food?

    Walu Walu at Uchi. It's practically a perfect dish.

    You really can go wrong with anything at Uchi, though. I suggest the happy hour. The place opens at first come first serve seating at 5:00 with a happy hour menu that is quite a bit cheaper than the normal menu. Uchi is my favorite restaurant in the city.

    Sinh Sinh - Curry Chicken

    Best Asian dish in town. Could be spicy based on your resistance to spices.

    Ousie's Table, Frank's, Punks, Liberty are worth trying. In that order. There's some Vietnamese place people like for chicken fried steak but I've never had it.

    Captain Tom's on 1960/i10 and west green/i10 and bwy 8 east. Best catfish I've had. Make it with corn meal and catch it fresh, not from vendors.

    Cheerleader burger at Bernies is awesome.

    Lime beef fajitas at Guadalajaras.

    Cedar plank salmon or Pecan crusted trout at Rockfish. Their mashed sweet potatoes w bourbon sauce is also great.

    Pretty much anything at Osaka but love their oversized sushi pieces and complimentary and amazing green tea ice cream.

    Lobster roll at Mainely Sandwiches.

    Deep dish pizza at Stars.

    Hickory Hollow. Go in ready to grub down though, it's like 5 lbs worth of meat and gravy.

    So I finally tried the fajitas at Lupe Tortillas. They don't even compare to El Tiempo, at all. Sitting here drinking some 1800 margaritas though, pure perfection.

    After years of driving past it I finally went to the 1960 location and it was very good. Tried Sudie's at the rodeo and it was just ok, but that could be because it was at the rodeo not the restaurant.

    Who has the best homemade onion rings?

    Fruit kolaches at Original Kolache Shoppe on telephone Rd. Maybe the best food ever.

    Hummus and kafta kabob at Kasra
    Salt and pepper lobster at Lucky Dragon. (Or any of a number of places in China Town). Also the toasted salted fish is like crack.
    Beef Ribs at Killens
    Chicken fajita at El Tiempo. The beef is like anywhere else but the chicken is easily my favorite.
    Regular Burger at Millers Cafe on Shepherd. Best burger of all time and it's not even close. Pretty sure it's a frozen patty and there's nothing special on it but everything put together is perfect.

    Bread pudding at Killens is one of the best desserts of all time.
