Rockporter, I just looked around your area and found Hu-Dat Noodle House with great prices and selection. http://www.hudatnoodlehouse.com/HuDa...urantMenu.html
Here's two more I'd visit.

Hu-Dat is a chain and I don't particularly care for their food. I've been a couple of times. Their prices are very good though.

I'll have to take a look at the other two links you posted. Thanks.



Edit: The first one is closer to me but I haven't heard about them, lol. I have been down that road before but I have not seen the restaurant. I'll ask around.

The second restaurant is in what I call big town. I only go there when I need something or have doctor appts there. I might have to give that one a try as well. Thanks for the links.

I noticed they had 3 locations with a slightly different name like Hu-Dat 2 and Hu-dat N noodles. I find it's easier to find dishes you want to try or eat and then find the place that makes it best. There's so many variations of Asian dishes that it's hard to know what's really authentic.

Worth I noticed a place in Austin that has a location here too. This is the next place I'll try, I'll let you know if it's any good.

That area is where I bought my wok but farther south and not there anymore.
That area is a huge Asian community now and not far from the Asian American resource center ran by the city.
Got all kinds of crazy stuff going on there and they have a nice new kitchen and education and entertainment center.
There is also an Asian cultural center.
The thing about any Asian food is if it isn't spicy and or hot I dont want anything to do with it.
I dont want any food that isn't spicy and or hot.
Note distinguishing between spicy and hot.

There's a huge difference between spicy and hot.

Our grandchildren tell me they don't like cinnamon because it's hot. I tried to explain the difference, but they didn't get it.

That's the great thing about Asian food, you can always add what you need to make it hot and or spicy.

Here's my next dish I make, I already have all the ingredients except noodles.

The local Thai place I like to eat is called Magic Noodle. You can tell them how hot or spicy you want your food. I like their food a lot, but my wife doesn't care for it so I only eat it about once a month. I was watching Food Paradise today and they went to a place called MoPho. Handmade all of their noodles and it looked delicious.

I chopped up one whole fresh habanero and mixed it and salt in a one pound ground chuck patty.
We shall see how this turns out.
The pepper I didn't like for a long time due to flavor has turned into my go to pepper for some reason.

The meal hit the spot and wasn't to hot at all.
That and three glasses of wine put me where I need to be, sleepy.
I have been up since 4 this morning.
Before that I was wide awake and worried about a sleepless night.

I have traveled the world and the U.S. and though there are delicious foods to be enjoyed just about everywhere, for me there is nothing better than the traditional dishes of southeastern cuisine when well made. Trouble is, MANY of those dishes, and the events in which they were found, have largely disappeared or the ingredients are now hard to find. Each state, region, and sometimes counties had their specialties where their heritage, culture and history were part of dishes enjoyed. How I miss real family reunions where the Acadian, Creole, Gullah, and French were all a part of the S.C. low country foods, accented by that uniquely historical twist of hundreds of years of southern adaptation! The same is true throughout the south.
YUMMMMMMMMMM!

The trouble is so many people home cooks dont know how to do anything anymore.
So if they cant do it then they forget about it.
No demand then they cant buy it because it isn't there as time goes by it becomes a lost art.
If I would have had children I would have liked them to remember me for showing them things and being involved.
My children now and for years have been the many young men and women in my life I have trained and continue to train at work.
Not only it is work related but many other things including cooking.
Got my sights on one young kid now that is 23.
Loves food loves to cook but doesn't know how.

First thing on the menu tonight is fried cauliflower.
You might say it is southern but it is middle eastern.
