Dim sum is served - and other restaurants open Thanksgiving

Pacific Moon on the Levee started serving dim sum again last month (thank GOODNESS), usually only on Saturday and Sunday. But this week, check it out for a Thanksgiving lunch. The dim sum carts will be a'rollin' 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Thanksgiving Day, Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week at Pacific Moon. We did sample a few dishes at the Foodie Report's one year anniversary earlier this month. A big thumbs up on the steamed shrimp dumplings, curry puffs and char siu steamed pork buns. I'm personally not a big fan of pork dumplings (siu mai) or shark fin dumplings (shark fin is a controversy in and of itself), but you'll have to try them and then decide for your self.

No love for the Golden Corral?

Hey Schottzie. I'm told they have great fried chicken at Golden Corral. But somehow that one didn't make the list. Me? Never been there, I'm proud to say. Holding out for church chicken fried dinners season to roll around again.

Why would you feel "proud" to say you've never eaten at Golden Corral? Just curious. Not going is one thing. Hell, I've never been there because I don't dig buffets. But to take pride in looking down your nose on a restaurant where 3/4 of your readers probably love to go? Asinine.

This is the foodie blog, a blog for people with an appreciation for good food, fresh ingredients, a knowledge of where their food comes from, and a love of cooking and/or eating. I'm sorry, but I strongly disagree that 3/4 of the foodie blogs readers love to go to Golden Corral. Having said that if someone likes Golden Corral and enjoys their food then I'm happy for them. I'm glad that they've found a restaurant that they like.

Dear Anon - I don't like buffets, and absolutely NONE of this looks remotely appealing to me: www.goldencorral.com/menu/hot.asp

And you'd be surprised by the amount of flak the paper gets when we run anything remotely positive about a chain restaurant of any sort. Though I know people do eat at them. Just not my cuppa tea.
