Almost like a fajita except they would shape a beef patty like a half moon, put it inside a flour tortilla with the vegetables and cover it with a green chile sauce.

Getting hungry just thinking about it!
Word brother- I love discovering tasting food joints that are off the beaten path. Growing up overseas I have always been an adventurous eater- there's not a whole lot that I wouldn't try.

Getting hungry too thinking about some dim sum....

Yup -- camel burgers rock, actually (very lean meat, not too gamey). We can buy it at the supermarket at Abu Dhabi here, and I've made some pretty good camel jerky at home a few times. Beef is better, to be honest, but camel's very serviceable.

If you're ever in AD, go to the Manarat Al Sadiyat museum, they have an excellent camel burger at the Fanr Restaurant.

how funny is that? I lived in Abu Dhabi growing up (I think you and I have had this conversation before) and that's where I had it as well.

We traded photos of an Arab wedding for some of the food they prepared back in the day. They had goat as well, which I love!

Probably durhams (the equivalent of 25 cents depending on exchange rate)- correct me if I'm wrong Bowlenball- it's been a long time since I've been there...

Unless I am in Vegas, I cannot remember last time I had to sober up at a Denny's at 2AM in the morning.

Yup, I'm old school expatriate, but you're downright stone-age expat!

Prices are in dirhams on that menu, by the way (3.67 dirhams to the dollar, fixed price).

You've gotta come back here some time, 91BRONCO, just to see how it's all changed -- feel free to crash at my place for a few days, if you'd like.....

it's definitely been a while- back in 89 was the last time I was there.

I might have to take you up on your offer in the future- It would be good to take a trip down memory lane...

Are you Dat Nguyen?

yes! because i am the only asian in dallas who knows that football doesn't involve kicking a round ball with your feet..

anyways, i am partial to all good foods. food is too good to be stuck on one type.

I love me some bbq, i smoke some serious meats. i bought a cookshack last year and its nice!

i own a lynx grill and can make a perfect filet med rare. central market carries the best meats besides the local butcher.

i enjoy eating persian food. especially enjoy kabobs and the rice.

love me some italian, just some of it is quite rich.

my wife and I enjoy eating out. we eat out atleast twice a week. Here in dallas, addison has all the nice restaurants. I been to most of them. ruth chris, 3 forks, fo go, chamberlands, bobs, and bunch more. There is a bunch more uptown that we go to that are small but extremely good. we also been to some french restaurants, but seeing that large plate with small portions at such a high price wasn't that great.

not sure if anyone been to twisted roots, but they specialize in gourmet burgers with different types of meat. i already had buffalo, elk and ostrich. taste great.

I've been to the one in Roanoke. I stuck with beef, but got some kind of loaded up BBQ burger. It was delicious.

We recently took some friends to the Ruth's Chris steakhouse in Dubai -- we wanted to introduce them to some really good, authentic "American" food!

Vegas usually will do the trick. Except I usually don't sober up until around lunch the next day at margaritaville.

What do you think about goat?

Prepared correctly (raised correctly and the right cut) I can't get enough of the stuff. Curried goat is one of my all time favorite dishes.

New Saigon Bakery-

The Bahn Mi's are delicious and are only $4. They put Subway/Jimmy Johns/etc to shame with the meats and fresh vegetables for the price.

I usually grab two when I go so that I have one for later- am I the only one

This is what happens when you raise a young Amurican boy in the middle east... Curried goat? What's wrong with a simple, honest hamburger and some french fries?

Actually, it was the curried goat in Jamaica that really got me hooked on it. I've tried to replicate it on my own with some success but it's never quite the same. Goat can have a certain funk if not sourced properly although tracking down the proper spices is really the hardest part.

At the end of the day, I'm just drawn to ethnic food of all types and could really care less about typical American fare- drives my girlfriend nuts though.

HELL YEAH! Star Kitchen was my favorite except for the last 3 months. But thankfully Superstar has picked it up and gotten better. There is a place up north now on 120th and Main (Empresses Palace I think) . Not great but its so far north that I'll compromise.

There's a lot of great American food. But if I were to put a hamburger vs. a curried goat. I think the goat might be a little bit better. Just sayin'.

It's kind of weird- it's like they all go through cycles of goodness at times. Star Kitchen seems to be the favorite of most people I poll. Superstar is good but they never put enough meat in the BBQ pork buns. Kingsland has the best pork buns and are sometimes my all around favorite.

It really just depends upon the day, time and dishes that you order and can definitely be overwhelming if you are a newbie going on a Saturday or Sunday.

I like all the shrimp dishes with the steamed shrimp ball being my favorite (hard to find though), tripe, short ribs (beef and pork), shu mai, anything leek related- and who doesn't love some duck with crispy skin...

I think I have to go to dim sum tomorrow now Z

Its been a long time for him since my last visit (2 months). I think I need to go in for another fix. If the Dim Sum here was as good as LA or Chicago I'd be there everyday, but I'd be 300 lbs.
