Great photos Rob. Can I use your POD page to ask a question that I've been afraid to ask ? When I visit my US Family each year from the UK I am impressed with the good standards of Restaurant Food. But when I ask why some Restaurants are rated better than others the answer surprises me. "Because Restaurant C serves huge portions" In a health concious World I wonder do folks ever question themselves ?

Always a puzzle, Garry, when looking at restaurant reviews, because not everyone values the same thing, and not everyone is health-conscious, even if they say so! And it's not just portion size, either: even in more sensible portions there can be a lot of unhealthy extra calories, food that isn't fresh, etc. And with the arrival of plant-based 'meat,' I find myself amazed at how many people who rail against processed food are pleased to eat this incredibly-processed 'food' because it is...

I found is its pretty easy finding healthy choices in restaurants in the US in bigger cities. The problem can be in rural areas where sometimes all they have is chain and fast food restaurants.

Re: Name Your Favorite Restaurants for Atmosphere, Past or Present

Green Chili Restaurant, Nyaungshwe, Burma. Setting: A simple elegant house in a garden, converted to it's current use, in a residential neighborhood off the beaten path. Seating on the veranda or in the high-ceilinged dining room. Service: Like the decor, low key. Responsive and friendly. In a word, perfect. Friends from the 2nd visit. Food: The best Burmese I had in several weeks in the country. After the first try I couldn't eat anywhere else for the duration. I didn't expect to find a...

Fascinating, Mac! I have to admit some of the shellfish on sale look like something out of the Jurassic era, but with a little Chili peppers and lime juice, I'm sure they're extremely good. Did you and your lovely wife indulge in the feast at all?

Food tour in Kuala Lumpur
