THE best "Chinese food joints" are those small places you find all over south Jersey and most likely in the NYC area.

You know - the place that has the "greatest hot and sour soup on the planet" (China Cafe in Mount Holly NJ) or the absolute best Shrimp with Lobster Sauce (the un-named place - because I forget the name - in Browns Mills NJ), and so on...

Basically, all corporate Chinese restaurants suck. I have yet to find any exception on either coast.

And you really have to be careful of those so-called single-venue "must visit" spots.

Example - Empress of China in Chinatown, San Francisco.
This place is rated as everything better than Extraordinary by just about every tour book, etc. that I've seen.

Been there.
Twice.

Better than average? Only slightly.
The venue is extraordinary. The room is exquisitely beautiful.
The view out the windows is indescribably perfect, at roughly 300 ft above street level.
The table service is beyond faultless.

But the food?
YAWN.

This reminds me that I should make a video about neck ties.

Amusing geekery, bart!  Bizarre comments, though....and somehow even a post about bagel cutting managed to incite some (limited) anti-semitism.  Amazing...

Crabcake doughnuts.

I'm a tad surprised nobody in Maryland sells such a thing.

Will you people stop talking about bagels already?
You're making me much too hungry for those things and it is already past noon...

A bagel is good any time of the day! All that changes is what you put on it. :)

At 12:22pm PDT you could have easily made lunch out of a bagel loaded up with chicken salad or some other savory filling.

I had a tuna-salad bagel for breakfast. It wasn't intentional, though. I was going for tuna-salad wrap, but the clerk didn't understand either English or fingers showing the number 1, followed by the number 5, to indicate combo 15. I noticed he wasn't wearing glasses, so his visual acuity might be as bad as his English and lacks the needed correction to understand visual cues.

Still, it tasted okay.

Tuna-salad bagels are yummy. Just not a b-fast thing (at least for me).

Since it's probably 8:23am where Vince is right now, may I suggest a bagel "all the way" with smoked salmon and cream cheese and all the other fixin's that go with that type of thing. Yum yum yum.

salt bagel with whitefish salad and a slice of tomato, with a pickle on the side... and a snapple peach iced tea.

while reading the Sunday NY Times (just the magazine section, never the news!)

That's my fantasy of life in America... 

Seems like absolute perfection...

:)

Feh.
All of you forgot the green bell pepper ring and chopped (black) olive.

chopped (black) olive, no problem, but green bell pepper rings? No thanks.

How about chopped green olive and black bell pepper rings?

Crunch can be from green bell pepper or red onion

red onions is okay.

green olives, also okay.

black bell pepper rings? no thanks. definitely going off in the wrong direction with that one.

...or by simply toasting the bagel. :)
