Little Saigon on Florida and Sherwood, next door to the Baskin Robbins.

I last saw Don Pedigo at the 19th JDC courthouse (the old one, before they moved) about 3 years ago, and he said the bank "took" his restaurant (the one off of Dallas Dr.), and that he was trying to get the key from them so he can get his equipment out.
I didn't wanna tell him that the same ban...

Too bad they're both long gone now....

Oriental Pearl (Sherwood Loacation) makes a damn good hot wing ... real saucy, has a little bit of sweet heat (probably sriracha) .... i remember them being rather cheap too, and that's if you get them cooked to order.
If you wanna be both cheap and gluttonous, and you don't mind taking them off ...

Manchu wings are good, but nothing to rave about. They make a good fried rice too.
This list has no credibility due to the fact that Wing Shack on Claiborne and Orleans is not even on the list ... home of the ghetto punch.

PO-BOY bread is a specific type of French Bread that is the ONLY type of bread you can use and still rightfully call the sandwich a "Po-Boy."
You can't just use any old bread that's labeled "French Bread" ... it could easily be too wide and too soft on the outside (it should have the slightest c...

They should bring back the McD.L.T. in a "throwback" promotion, like the soft drink producers and the potato chip companies keep doing.
