Our fallback joint here is Five Guys. It's one block away, the employees are always friendly, and the two of us can get more than enough food for about twelve bucks. Just the other day, I saw a segment about Five Guys on some show (I cannot remember which; it seems like every cable channel now how its own travel/food show) where the host explained that you can get as much of any one topping as you want at Five Guys.
I'd never considered that before. The next time I went in, I ordered double pickles and double jalapeños - to go along with my mayo, lettuce, grilled onions, steak sauce, bell peppers, and relish. It was outstanding. Messy, but outstanding. Next time I might just go for triple jalapeños.
These spring rolls were my favorite of the PF Chang's appetizers I have tried. They still were not nearly as good as the little dumplings, though.
Soy, rice vinegar, sugar, water, and cilantro.
There is a market two blocks away with a hot buffet counter. Every night after 7:30 PM, everything is 50% off. So one night recently I went down there to take advantage of the discount for the first time. I got brisket, mac 'n cheese, and pulled pork, all of this for a little over three bucks. The pulled pork was by far my favorite of the three things.
And the teriyaki salmon was really good. I was afraid it would be too dry from sitting out, which is why I only got two little pieces, but it was my favorite of the bunch.
