re: Uchi - Houston : Pics From Last Night - lilwineman
Uchi was the best sushi meal I've had in the city. The chefs are masters of their craft and the omakase was spectacular. That being said, I frequent Kata robata more so and Manibu knows what he is doing. A lot of his fish easily rivals uchi (especially his house prepared unagi and anago), but the co...

re: I just picked up a filet of Copper River Salmon from Rouses - lilwineman
Which species are you getting right now? I'm guessing sockeye at the price which is prime right now. The king salmon at the beginning of the season is hands down my favorite of the three species but typically closer to $40-50lb depending where you buy it....

re: Buying "Sushi" Grade Ahi Tuna - lilwineman
Sushi grade is a classification. There is #1, #2+, and #2 or #3 grade tuna which is a classification of fat content of the meat when a sample is drawn, color, freshness, outside appearance, etc. #1 tuna should be very expensive honestly. I've seen wholesale as high as $28-30 a lb. A lot of sushi res...

re: Pepper plant identification - lilwineman
Those little ornamentals do pack some heat. We chopped up a nice size harvest one year and let it marinate in fish sauce. I like the heat though and we were out if birds eye chiles....

re: Champs at the Mall of La - lilwineman
Soooo...where did I say something against your wife? Just curious here. Read over it again and I don't see anything outside of the tip scenario written. And I'm guessing if I should quit when I'm ahead is kinda the same scenario as the casino, walk away when you're winning? :popcorn: ...

re: Champs at the Mall of La - lilwineman
I clearly remember lunch starting around 12/1230 and lasting til 330. Why...not because I'm a creepy wine guy, because I was a caring manager. And they didn't complain to the server, they just thought it ok to stay silent and scratch out the added gratuity and decide what they wanted to tip. I only ...

re: What to order at Ruffinos? - lilwineman
Spinalis Dorsi...I've been seeing a lot of places serving the center of the ribeye lately and using the trimmed cap for tartare and I always think to myself "why!?!" It's one hell of a tartare actually but I would like the option of an 8 oz portion seared off. Hands down my favorite cut of steak....

re: Champs at the Mall of La - lilwineman
The tip wasn't 30%...it was 20%. I checked the math and multiplying something by .2 isn't hard. They literally scratched out the auto gratuity and marked it at almost half that amount after sitting for lunch for almost 3 1/2 hours keeping the server there for the duration of time he would typically ...

Martini is just an angry man who's wife doesn't like have to 20% gratuity added to her split checks even though it's on the menu, would rather tip 10%, and keep a server there for hours after their shift. :lol:...

re: Build or buy wine cabinet? - lilwineman
Trust me I have both at my place lol. I have close to 150 bottles in racks in my living room and have my cabinet for the collectibles. Any wine worth storing for extended periods deserves proper storage. If you're looking for something to hold just 5 cases of drinkables, build away. Keep in mind whe...

If you're wanting something for show purposes and not collecting, build away. If you're wanting something legitimate for cellaring, read up thoroughly on humidity and temperature controls or pony up and buy one. ...
