Top 10 dishes of 2011

I love reading lists. So I thought it would be fun to make my own as the year is winding to an end. Here are my top 10 dishes that I absolutely loved in 2011! You can click on the restaurant name to read my detailed review of each dish. It was really hard to single out 10, so the list is not in any particular order. But I would go back to eat all of them in a heartbeat! Happy holidays everyone!
General Tao's Chicken from Asian Legend.
Peking duck from Asian Legend.
Unagi doria– BBQ water eel on mixed mushroom, rice, and topped with cheese from Guu Izakaya.
Fettucine with crab, guanciale, cream and soft poached egg from Fabbrica.
Gra bong–fried squash fritters battered with red curry paste, shrimp paste, and lemongrass from Khao San Road.
Risotto with caramelized squash, finished with chervil, sage, ginger and a spark of cinnamon from Mildred's Temple Kitchen.
Fried chicken and waffles– fried chicken over Belgian waffles with chili maple molasses citrus glaze from  Stockyards Smokehouse & Larder.
Spiced benni on cheddar chive biscuit with back bacon, chipotle hollandaise and home fries from School Bakery & Café.
Perogi, stuffed with cheddar and potato, and accompanied with bacon, onions and sour cream from Shanghai Cowgirl.  
Steak Frites from Table 17– 8oz thick cut top sirloin, served with lemon mayo.


  1. Asian Legend must have really left an impression for you since it has 2 spots! haha, but I agree, the general tao chicken IS really good! I eat there quite often and I always order it.

    great recap post!

  2. Seriously?! Not the avocado thingy from Guu (or was it not from this year)? I'm disappointed ... I was hoping most of the dishes were from our outing ... you know what this means! We gotta eat out more so we can experience more amazing dishes!!!!

  3. you only have 9 dishes listed...

  4. wow, there's actually fried chicken on a waffle? how was it? :P

    I had the Guu one you suggested above, it was pretty good. Have to go back there for some more dishes :)

    Now that it's the new year, means Winterlicious is coming up. Are there any restaurants you would recommend for Winterlicious 2012?

  5. Ed- I'm definitely going to Bymark to check out the burger that's available on the winterlicious lunch menu. Seems like a good deal and I've heard a lot about that burger...

  6. Oh are you talking about that $30+ prime rib burger? Yes, I've heard about it before and sounds intriguing, but never tried it though. It would be worth it for Winterlicious, since the whole 3 course lunch is only $25, and the burger itself is already more than that :)

    Let me know when you're going, so I can wait for your review and go afterwards if you give it the thumbs up (since supposingly you are the masterette of burgers :D).
