SF Dish of the Month (Nov 2012) Nominations
It's time to choose a Dish of the Month for SF Bay Area for November 2012
The idea is this: choose a 'Dish of the Month' for SF Bay Area and then collectively try as many versions of this dish as possible, reporting back with details and photos. It's great to talk about places you've been in the past, but the idea is to explore new places and make new discoveries.
The dish that gets chosen might be something very specific (minestrone soup, xiao long bao) but might also be more of a dish category (stuffed pasta dishes, Asian fried chicken). It's up to the users on this board, but it probably makes sense to choose something that locals are excited about trying and finding the best versions! This past month, the dish of the month inspired a few Chowdowns so people could try the dish together....hopefully this tradition can continue!
This is the nomination thread for November 2012…you can nominate as many dishes as you want, but once we do the voting thread (which will start on October 26), it will be one vote per user.
To nominate a dish, post it in ALL CAPS in the responses below. This thread will be open until October 26th.
Let the nominations begin!

re: Dave MP
One of the fun things about Green Papaya Salad is the unusually wide variety of outlets, from fancy Asian fusion restaurants to Sunday fund-raisers at Buddhist temples. Also, it's quite affordable.
On the other hand, it's cold. Ones of the stews or curries or a soup might be a more appealing Winter choice. Hmmm...
