      i like fried fish also, but would "Shrimp" and "Oysters" really count as "Fried Fish"?

      ipse and everyone, please clarify.

        This reminds me of when Homer Simpson asked, "Does whiskey count as beer?"

        But yes, fried finfish only? Or also shellfish?

        PANCAKES & WAFFLES

        1. Porthos Aug 26, 2013 09:35 AM

          SOUP

          We should probably also clarify whether or not the starch component can be greater than 50% of the dish. Otherwise soup could quickly turn into noodle soups with ramen, pho, etc. Noodles and noodle soups should get their own month :)

                                      If fried fish wins, I'm calling out (in the friendliest way possible) everyone that voted to see if they actually participate! :-)

                                        Ya know, my little musketeer, some of us have children to raise and pay for! As I stated in the past, if I had an open expense account, I'd be 400 lbs and eating my way through the city, meeting you guys at Shunji, et al, at least once a week! My poor husband works 80+ hours a week to support me, my urchins and my habits, and I've got to go easy on the poor guy once in a while! But YES, I will promise to eat out more, just to satisfy your desire to keep score as to who votes and reports back. Cuz I'm a giver that way.....

                                          well, luckily, shunji's is healthy, right ? except for the chocolate mousse at the end.

                                          your husband sounds like a real trooper and mensch. and i'm scare to ask what "my habits" entails, but you got me thinking.

                                          restaurants/cafes/bar may be expensive, but it's still cheaper (and i hope my logic passes muster) than say chartering a jet to france, or buying the newest late-model european luxury sedan, or say the top of the line HD set, etc. i think you get my drift.

                                            And my cooking everything I'm craving at the moment is cheaper than all of the above too.... But the chef needs a break now & then.... Except for foie. Now I'd fly for that, but I still want to go to that South Bay place that serves you foie on the side for free.....

                                              ok, i'll email you the name of that place off-board i think.

                                              there was a couple of joints in OC that served it on the side too, kind of like a nice little gift from the chef.

                                              foie is tough these days, especially with one for a craving for it.

                                                and where we going to be meeting for that martini ?

                                                does it also have to be at the same place that serves the fried seafood ?

                                                    too many options.

                                                          oh, shit.

                                                          my lobbying sills are nonexistent.

                                                          i think our FRIED SEAFOOD cause is going to be quite the Sisyphean herculean effort. but we must put up a good fight.

                                                          who nows but we may make quite the comeback (think: the Dodgers this season).

                                                  i hope fried fish is winning.

                                                  but if i'll eat fried fish all month long anyhow.
