Based on the Nominations, we will be voting for PIE, LAMB, and STRAWBERRIES

Vote with all capital letters, vote for up to TWO different choices. Winner will be the one with the most votes and at least a majority. I reserve the right to disallow any votes that are fishy. Voting will conclude on the morning of 4/1.

              It's a fishy joke. Feel free to disallow.

                  1. already losing but I vote for LAMB

                        1. re: SaltyRaisins

                          How 'bout we just say Salty made a typo and call this a vote for lamb? :>)

                          1. re: Island

                            Ah....no, who knows if this is a typo? It could be a foreign PIE delight!

                            1. re: cstr

                              Larb en Croute? Now there's a thought

                              1. re: DiningDiva

                                Probably getting close to herding the felines again!

                            2. re: Island

                              No typo.

                              LARB...you know, like...LAHB on some menus.

                              But you can call it a typo if you need a tiebreaker. But then one of you must find LAMB LARB and report back.

                              With LARB,

                              1. re: SaltyRaisins

                                Yeah I know, but since karaethon narrowed us to the 3 above I was hoping to manipulate another vote for lamb. Yea!

                                Only had larb a few times, but now you have me craving it. Where are your favorite spots for that?

                                1. re: SaltyRaisins

                                  I think Sab-E-Lee has lamb larb under the northern issan specialties section. Will prob be checking first hand tomorrow.

                                  1. re: polldeldiablo

                                    No lamb larb at sab e lee, just beef, chicken, pork,catfish, duck, shrimp, squid, tofu and tofuduck, that's all...geez.

                                    1. re: polldeldiablo

                                      Which location? Was wondering how the new on in RPQ is.

                                      1. re: Island

                                        The original one at linda vista. I haven't been to the other one but I overheard a 'regular' talking about the other location being very good, just needing to work out some kinks.

                            3. What would constitute "fishy"?

                                same person voting multiple times with the same account

                                Voting irregularities where several new accounts seemed to have been created for just voting

                                1. re: karaethon

                                  Really. You think people rig the vote for what food to voluntarily eat then report about.

                                    Don't be suprised- this is a tough crowd of tough people, who'll stop at nothing to have their culinary way with the world!

                                          The DD votes for asparagus PIE

                                            1. By the way, what are the "pie" parameters?

                                              Wikipedia offers a list of sweet and savory pies. It is doubtful that this list is exhaustive. But is it too inclusive? Are we allowing savory pies as well as sweet pies to inhabit the category "pie"? If we allow savory pies, does this mean that we are allowing pizza pies, quiches, or samosas?

                                                        That'd be an awesome name for a pie shop, that is assuming they don't actually follow his recipe.

                                                                OR El Salvadoran Pupusas.

                                                                lol, we could Clintonize this to death. I'm thinking "pie" is going to need some parameters set in place. Unless the lamb folks rally for a late win.
