    Moved to a smaller space within the same plaza. Somewhere between Wine Detective and Lemonade. Do a lap in the inner part and you should see it.

            accept my sancerre apologies, but i don't feel pourly about it. i cantal when it's time to stop. perhaps i should comte my senses!

            they had a problem with credit cards so you'll have to bring kashta pay for your purchases. and when i inadvertently picked up someone else's purchase, i was told "that's nacho cheese!"

                      cheesy they may be but there are a few of which i've become quite fondue might feel the same way after a while.

                      and i find it comforting to know that i'm not provolone in enjoying them.

                      and for those of you using apple, are you enjoying your mac and cheese?

                      (at the risk of being sacrilegious) then there was this new breed on mice found that live only in churches. they worship cheeses. something about being their grate lord!

                      finally, CHEESE: grate at any meal.

                      i'll stop mainly because i'm going to king hua for lunch.

              I've been told that some Asians avoid cheese. Guess they don't have the right culture for it?

                Ahem. I know it's a joke, but the side effects from dairy ingestion may not be all that funny to the many Asians that suffer from lactose intolerance.... ;)

                    I'm sure that a lot of Asians wish there was a "soy cheese" equivalent for the "flush" that comes with alcoholic beverages...(well, in Colorado they now have an option).

                      FWIW, the more you ferment/process milk, the more lactose is transformed. hard cheeses are virtually lactose free, and a lot of asians can eat yogurt.

                        i was about to say something similar. when my son was a toddler he had a hard time with lactose. found out that higher the fat, lower the lactose. So even though the dr suggested lowfat milk we switched to full fat un-homogenized milk and he was all good.

                          In Japan, most everyone under 60 eats a fair amount of cheese. However, my wife's mother (born about 100 years ago) could not eat cheese (said it tastes like soap) but my wife (now 65) eats any kind of cheese except blue and likes it. One of the most popular home delivery items is pizza (Dominos, Pizza Hut and Japanese chains). Oh, and most dairy is big, especially yogurt drinks.

                        not just asians; that powdered milk that got shipped to africa also went to waste. the ugly american strikes again.

                          True, this. But, given my penchant for going off-topic, I thought I'd keep the scope more narrow. ;)
