Hi Coel. What's for dinner?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm coelacanth∅:

well i just ate lunch -leftover salmon, made into salmon salad; a small corn muffin and a few bites of cole slaw.
... dinner later, probably a raw salad w toasted buckwheat and sunflower seeds.

- got an extra taco for me?
Avatar 7:32pm βrian:

How groats!

Loves me salmon salad. And now I've got Little Human hooked on the stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm coelacanth∅:

...oh it wasn't this show. someone mentioned tacos on the drop-in show before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:33pm Franco Twinkie:

We're debating Coel. Vietnamese from across the street OR tacos from a new place.
Avatar 7:36pm βrian:

Oh I would go for Vietnamese.
The 'pedia says:

"In Vietnam, wheat gluten is called mì căng or mì căn."

Chewy goodness.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm coelacanth∅:

i've still never eaten vietnamese food, despite i think 3 vietnamese places nearby. it seems that the few meatless selections on the menus are quite overpriced. i walk in, i walk out.
i'd like to try it though.
Avatar 7:38pm βrian:

Never had Vietnamese? No Huế!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm coelacanth∅:

well, i have had "vietnamese iced coffee", by passionate recommendations on these comments boards.
i think i dumped 1/2 of it out!
Avatar 7:40pm βrian:

Loving this so far, Tamar. Lush and verdant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:40pm Franco Twinkie:

The place across the street is good and I don't feel like driving, so I think that's what it's going to be.
  Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Tamar:

We'll be having some Indonesian food soon, actually.
Avatar 7:44pm βrian:

Not a fan of any sweetened coffee, myself. Unless it's ice cream.

Damn, now I'm craving saffron.
Avatar 7:44pm wizard frog:

i could reallly doooo with a pho right abouut noowwwwwwwww
  Swag For Life Member 7:44pm Tamar:

Coel, not even papaya salad?
Avatar 7:46pm βrian:

We have quite a few Laoation places in our area. Papaya salad is lovely, if not a little like fire-walking.
Avatar 7:47pm βrian:

We had a local restaurant with the name "Pho King Good."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:47pm coelacanth∅:

that's just what it was, βrian. that condensed milk. i do add a little honey to hot coffee, sometimes - but not only do i think cold coffee needs no sweetener, but it was assaultingly sweet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Loving these.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...sweet like Thai iced tea then I gather...
Avatar 7:52pm βrian:

@RRNov63: How's life in the upper valley?
  7:54pm C in Thailand:

In general, people in SE Asia like things extremely sweet and I think just tend use that as the default when overseas. But here, the sweetness level ordered by the customer, from anywhere between not sweet and very sweet.
  Swag For Life Member 7:54pm Tamar:

βrian, the cats, they are fine, merci.
Avatar 7:55pm βrian:

@Coel: the dish I mentioned above was my go-to at a long-ago favorite restaurant in Ypsilanti, Mi.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm coelacanth∅:

RR i've heard that has condensed milk in it as well. (?) if so, i will not be tasting that!

C in Thailand, so traditionally these drinks' sweetness should be to order, like a regular cup of coffee or tea is in the us?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@βrian : With no AC - the physically immobilizing heat seems to have passed for now - actually under a throw-over now... The little town is having something of a Fest & I'm keen to see some Native American dancing in the park & one local band I've been wanting to assess...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:00pm coelacanth∅:

βrian i figured it had to be a pun on a vietnamese dish!
does it contain meat?
Avatar 8:01pm βrian:

No. Look for "seitan" here:
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:06pm coelacanth∅:

cool. i used to be a seitan worshiper.
years ago 2 things were different: i lived in nj (and my gf lived near morristown);
and, in nj (morristown) there was a "vegan" asian restaurant named "mayflower" that created miracles on a daily basis.
  8:07pm C in Thailand:

@coelacanth∅... yes, made to order. For example, Thai tea or coffee could be ordered not sweet... usually with evaporated milk, but black as well. Condensed milk, sugar or syrup if sweetness is wanted. In Vietnam coffee could be ordered black (with sugar on the side, added by the customer). The condensed milk one usually at the bottom of the cup, and stirred in by the customer depending how much sweet they want it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks C (iT) - i wonder if the thai or vietnamese places here would make it to order then...
i don't mind a little sweet, but i think i also just dislike the flavour of condensed milk.
-maybe bring my own oat milk?
Avatar 8:11pm βrian:

@RRNov63: Are you on Sununu's side of the river, or Bernie's?
  8:12pm marcus in ATX:

Currently grocery shopping and dancing
  8:14pm C in Thailand:

But sweet is still sort of the default, especially in the countryside. Like, occasionally, I might order not sweet, the preparer will repeat it but still start to put syrup in the beverage. For US, you should be able to order as well, as long it's not some instant mx. My wife and I do when we visit. You could order, for example, Vietnamese coffee black, not sweet, add your own milk.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@βrian : In NewHampshuh I'm afraid - but UpperVally of course is on the river border. Was also *born* in Vermont...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Franco Twinkie:

I was across the street. My order was finished fairly quick, but the television was so great I wanted to stay. It was a Vietnamese guy eating in Bangkok. First he was on the klong eating and you could see water taxis behind him, then he went to Chatuchak, the outside market. I love that place! I use to wander around in there looking at all the bizarre stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...Q: Why does Maine not fall into the Atlantic ?
A: Because NH sucks so hard.
  8:20pm C in Thailand:

@caelacanth∅... Vietnamese coffee isn't really that special. It's just made with a metal filter thing (ca phe phin), which are pretty cheap. You could buy one, use any coffee and test if you like the texture.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:20pm Franco Twinkie:

Where are you, C?
  8:22pm C in Thailand:

@Franco... Samut Sakhon, just SW of Bangkok.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Franco Twinkie:

I never went there. I would mostly hang out in Bangkok, until I went elsewhere.
  8:29pm C in Thailand:

@France... You used to live in Thailand? Or stay long-term? Where I live is a borderline Bangkok suburb. Just a few km from the Bangkok border on the main highway to Southern Thailand. A few km toward the gulf and it's wetlands. We're mostly known for fish farms, salt farms and industrial factories.
  Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Tamar:

I thought there was something happening August 20, but I see that there's the NY Indonesian Food Bazaar August 27, 11 am - 5 pm, 8407 Broadway in Elmhurst, Queens.

I've been going there most years since about 1990, sort of close to Australia, just lovely
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Franco Twinkie:

No, In 1994 I went to stay with friends who lived in Bangkok. Aside from the Khaosok rain forest, the beaches around Surat Thani and Ko Samui, I didn't spent much time in the south.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm steveo:

hello, enjoying the show very much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:42pm coelacanth∅:

C @814 "sweet by default" is what i thought, actually. but i wanted to try it without adjustments the first time -to experience the traditional...and didn't know that condensed milk was so sweet before that.
... i don't think i even really tasted coffee!
(technically i must have, but...)

so yeah, if it's not very special once that stuff's removed then why spend 4-5 bucks on it, when i can get a strong and excellent iced americano at one of the cafés in town?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm coelacanth∅:

greetings steveo
  8:45pm C in Thailand:

@Franco... Nice. I also haven't been to much of Southern Thailand. Ko Samui but also a long time ago (2005).
@Aitchy... I'm glad you like my adopted country ;) I've never been to Australia... hopefully, someday!

  8:58pm C in Thailand:

@Franco... I run a small business doing outsourced admin, data entry, operations. Yes, Section 112 is the lese majeste law. Actually, it's pretty hard to find VN food in Bangkok. Most of it is like Thai-VN mixed.
