Taste test: King's Palace

Eating L.A. had the privilege of dining with several folks from the L.A. Chowhound group , including Chowhound's own L.A. editor, Thi, last week at King's Palace in San Gabriel. Thi, an ebullient philosophy grad student with a world-class appetite, was recently profiled in Los Angeles magazine. I appreciated his advice to my dilemma of ordering in unusual restaurants
with friends who want to order only the usual suspects -- I think it was "Tell them to shut up." or maybe "Leave them at home." Here's one of Thi's Chowhound posts about King's Palace: "King's Palace, the Shanghai/Taiwanese place -- Unlike Green Village, which is very much of the funky, dunky, country school, King's Palace is all pure, hard lines - the clam and ginger soup tastes of fresh clam, and fresh ginger, and NOTHING ELSE. But boy, goddamn, does it taste of clam."
The Shanghai/Taiwanese style food was a little subtle for my taste -- I'm a fiend for Szechwan and also enjoyed the bold, earthy flavors at the more traditionally Shanghai style Green Village. But it's always fun to go with a group of adventurous eaters, and I was glad Thi arrived just in time to insist we get the winter melon with crab roe. Not only was it an alien-colored dish of celadon and coral, it had a pleasantly mild fishiness amid two textures of slimy. Everyone else raved about the garlic crab -- I must be taste-challenged or something, because I'm afraid I
didn't get it. The minced garlic all clings to the shell, and then you take the crab out of the shell and eat it, so no garlic actually touches the meat. But he was right about the ginger clam soup, it was very light and bracing. Because we also ordered the a whole steamed fish, Peking duck and the pork pump, at $25, it was the most expensive Chinese meal I've had in the San Gabriel Valley. Still, it's great to get to know various regions of Chinese cooking and see how many styles there are.

You just had to invoke the word 'Szechwan', didn't you. Damnit, now I have to go find some tonight. I had Szechwan food in the Szechwan province of China a few years ago - a toen called Guilin, and it was damn near a religious experience.

I agreed with Pat for the gourmet food untill I had my wedding banquet in June 2004. The restaurant requested us to pay cash for entire 17 tables (almost $7,000). In this way we can secure exclusive reservation.

They charged us addition $780+ beers and never show the breakdown. They claimed those were ordered by our guests. They provided much less quantity per table comparing to the tasting arrangement we had earlier. During the banquet, all shark fin were subsitute by thin clear noodle. They didn't provide 4 lb lobster per table as they promised. The worst thing is that they open the business for all public. We had strangers came in and out of our wedding banquet.

We were ripped off BIG TIME.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)

Pest control in the perennial garden
http://home-gardening.blogspot.com/
If you have any good tips please post trhem on my blog

One of the many advantages of growing perennials is the ability of these beautiful flowers to return to full bloom season after season. While this ability to bloom repeatedly is one of the things that makes perennials so special, it also introduces a number of important factors into your gardening plan. One of the most important of these is a proper pest control regimen.

While a garden full of annuals starts each season as a blank slate, the perennial garden is essentially a work in progress. The fact that the plants stay in the ground through winter makes things like proper pruning, disease management and pest control very important. If the garden bed is not prepared properly after the current growing season, chances are the quality of the blooms will suffer when the next season rolls around.

One of the most important factors to a successful perennial pest control regimen is the attention and vigilance of the gardener. As the gardener, you are in the best position to notice any changes in the garden, such as spots on the leaves, holes in the leaves, or damage to the stems. Any one of these could indicate a problem such as pest infestation or a disease outbreak.

It is important to nip any such problem in the bud, since a disease outbreak or pest infestation can easily spread to take over an entire garden. Fortunately for the gardener, there are a number of effective methods for controlling both common pests and frequently seen plant diseases.

Some of these methods are chemical in nature, such as insecticides and fungicides, while others are more natural, like using beneficial insects to control harmful ones. While both approaches have their advantages and disadvantages, many gardeners prefer to try the natural approach first, both for the health of the garden and the environment.

There is an additional benefit of the natural approach that many gardeners are unaware of. These days, it is very popular to combine a koi pond with a garden, for a soothing, relaxing environment. If you do plan to incorporate some type of fish pond into your garden landscape, it is critical to avoid using any type of insecticide or fungicide near the pond, since it could seep into the water and poison the fish. Fish are extremely sensitive to chemicals in the environment, especially with a closed environment like a pond.

As with any health issue, for people or plants, prevention is the best strategy to disease control and pest control alike. The best defense for the gardener is to grow a garden full of the healthiest, most vigorous plants possible. Whenever possible, varieties of plants bred to be disease or pest resistant should be used. There are a number of perennials that, through selective breeding, are quite resistant to the most common plant diseases, so it is a good idea to seek them out.

Happy gardening,
Stan
