I love Pad Thai Smile Especially from authentic asian restaurants (there's a little Vietnamese restaurant not far from me; my wife gets Pho and I get Pad Thai).

Also, I had the opportunity to visit Beijing in November 2010, and had some great meals (my colleagues and I were guests of the government), and we got served a traditional meal at an old-timey restaurant. The main course was Peking Duck. You dip the skin in sugar and it melts in your mouth. And you use the meat and put it in this funky pita-type bread, with veggies and sauce and it makes a little wrap. Delicious.

Also, they gave us this interesting soup. Funny story, the soup had a duck broth with a pumpkin-like flavouring, and had this cartilage in it. I thought it was really good, but the other Canadian didn't like it. We asked what it was, but the Chinese couldn't think of the English word for it. It was "the best part of the fish". Then we got a translation: Shark Fin Soup.

I'm morally opposed to Shark Fin; what has to be done to the shark is terrible. But it tasted really good. I would never eat it again, but I'm glad I got to try it in that setting.

Bacardi? Captain Morgan?

I'm a Captain Morgan man, myself. I call him Henry. To quote Al Pacino in the movie Scent of a Woman: "When you've known him as long as I have, you can call him whatever you want!" (after he referred to Jack Daniels as "John Daniels".)

But yea, a bit of Captain Morgan's Original Spiced Rum, in some diet coke (or better yet, Vanilla Coke)...mmmmm.

I've never had shark fin soup. but I've had fresh shark grilled in Italian seasoning right after I caught it. Best seafood I've ever eaten next to the fresh mullet we caught that day. Delicious.

Shark Fin soup is awful. I ate it at a wedding once. Never again.

I prefer Captain Morgan to Barcadi. You really can't go wrong with a rum 'n coke. Anyone else here drink wine?

I drink it every now and then, but it depends on the company I'm keeping.

Went to a little mom and pop bread store on a whim the other day. They were giving out samples. I tried something called Gouda Stout.

It's delicious.

Enough said Wink

I drink wine when the occasion is appropriate. Otherwise I prefer beer (my favorite being Guinness when the place has it on tap). Not that I really drink much and only in a group setting.

Completely random but the thought struck my head, and, well, sparks lead to forum posts.

So...what's your favorite soda/pop/coke/soda pop?

I like a good root beer or Cherry Pepsi/Cherry Coke, but my current favorite is Sun Drop.
