That One Dish...
there are a lot of mediocre and crappy restaurants around... but there's often that one dish they serve that they just ****ing kill it.
where i live...
chinatopia's crispy peking duck... this is your standard, ho-hum chinese place (they do right with the complimentary tea that's awesome) with not much to write home about. but their peking duck is ****ing amazing. you'd think it was served in a 4-star place.
bistro 1908's pesto gnocchi with grilled shrimp... all you need to know about this place is that their best dish - by far - at this FRENCH bistro is an ITALIAN dish. but goddamn is it good. the gnocchi are so light and they soak up the pesto perfectly.
