In Topic: Dallas 2019

Yesterday, 12:34 AM

So I “literally” was last in Dallas when Dean Fearing was cooking at The Mansion, and that was really good.

I’ll be there in spring-time. Welcoming tips from anyone who’s been there more recently, either high-end or casual. Also, anything worth seeing (assume I did the JFK stuff last time).


For hotels I really like The Adolphus.  Good location too.  Strongly recommend going to the Kimball and Modern in Fort Worth if you haven't been.

I'm glad I missed this.


Is it bad that I keep reading reviews on the Breville Oracle though?

KAL, ANA (in F, two roundtrips!), JAL.  All too damn hot.  And now that I'm running my own business I'm going to keep flying to Asia for the foreseeable future...

On Asian airlines I often have to correct their assumption that I really meant the western menu.


(with that said, despite the massive difference in service and food quality, I think I'm sticking to United and Delta (Aeromexico is fine too) for long-haul flights to Asia.  100% of Asian carriers keep the cabin too damn hot and don't have individual air vents.  If you can't sleep, what's the point.  At least an American carrier will give me a lie-flat, booze and an air vent in a not too hot cabin.). (European carriers often keep the cabin too hot but at least have individual air vents.)

In Topic: Seoul

Sigh. I go to Seoul twice a year at least. I'll be there in Q3 at some point. At best I get to eat at that Lotte food court. However the Seoul Four Seasons is one of my favorites.

Finally a good cocktail bar in that Four seasons.
This is news I can use.
