Big, big fan of hot and sour soup. Probably my favourite soup ever.

And to add to the Cream of Broccoli soup talk - Quiznos has excellent creamy, cheesy, broccoli soup.

I'm sure I have had it there before, but it's not registering in my mind as awesome. I love H&S soup though. I think the best I have had is from Gow's in Bells Corners. It's really thick, whether you like that or not.
The Mandarin near me cooks it up nice and thick... maybe it's different from one to the other... there's a new Chinese Noodle & Soup place near me that just opened up. Will have to try their hot and sour tomorrow...

Man I wish I could remember it. Too bad I'll likely never get a chance to return Sad They should bring it to Ottawa.

No Mandarin in Ottawa? What? That blows. There was a new Mandarin-like place that opened up near by and their H&S soup was ok, but not great. They had live cooking tables for Wok and Teppanyaki which were great through.

Ottawa has a Bert's Bar, though.

No Marshy's though I hear...

Funny that DashRiprock mentioned Gow's in Bell's Corners..I used to go there in high school. They have a small, cheap, yummy buffet. And they would serve alcohol to underage high schoolers. And they are conveniently located next to an animal hospital.

Kind of like the House of Cheung in my high school days.

FOODY Cussing GOODY! My mom used to pick me up sometimes at Bell's Corners Public School and we'd go to Foody Goody for lunch. Then it changed to...something...and then "Easy Garden Buffet"...and...now I don't know if it's still there. It was decent.

Fun fact: Bell's Corners had a Chinese buffet named "Buffet Palace" (then changed to "Buffet Place") for less than a year..it was in the same building as The Vox.

I know this because I worked as a waiter at Buffet Palace. I met my wife there. She was a waitress. We bonded over all-you-can-eat chinese food after each of our shifts.

The building's previous tenants included Chi Chi's, Smokin' Gunn...and a few others I forget. The building has now been demolished.

I was a cook at Chi Chi's... and when it was The Keg before that. Those were fun times.

Holy Dung, I never knew that was a Keg...when was that? I think my earliest memories of Chi Chi's are from the late 80s.

Keg was when I was in High School I believe... so late 80's/early 90's... there was a whole slew of us from SRB that worked there and it was more like a party than work. Good times.

At least their ingredients are fresh. Not trucked in from god knows where.

What better way to pay respect to freshly, dearly departed Fluffy than to eat him in "chicken" ball form?

Isn't that the true spirit of recycling?

Man, I want to edit your post so bad. But the "Chink in the Armour" / Jeremy Lin backlash tells me I shouldn't. Beer
