Agh! I've just come back from Montreal and I've already forgotten the name of this Asian soup that is everywhere. It seems to be at Thai restaurants as well I think as (other) Asian places and I wanted to look it up and see what's in it because I didn't get a chance to try it.
I remember it had "aise" as the last bit (I know that's not THAT helpful) and was, as I said, just everywhere, at least in the theatre district and Chinatown.
I think it may be Tom Yum or something of that ilk. It looked somewhat related. I think it had noodles.
Can someone help? I'm sure this is a very easy question if you're actually in Montreal. Thanks!

I moved to DC recently-ish, but haven't explored the restaurant scene very well. Now I have a friend coming to town next week, staying right near the Dupont Circle Metro station, and I could use some recommendations for places to eat. Can any locals help me out? [more inside]

Spending the weekend on Kiawah Island, SC. I'd like to find a nice restaurant for Friday night, hopefully not all the way back in Charleston. Details inside. [more inside]

I'm looking for good dining out options for treating a friend to brunch, around 11:00am on December 25, in the general vicinity of Torrance, CA (or between Torrance and LAX). I'm sure there's tons of good places, but I need someplace that'll be open Christmas morning. Know of any?

I'm going to Las Vegas over the weekend and meeting with a friend for lunch on Sunday (and possibly also dinner) and we have some overlapping food issues that are making finding places a little tricky. [more inside]

Waitress etiquette: I work at a diner that's only open one day a week (at an auction arena). We're a close-knit group (employees and customers). We have a "special" every week, a dinner that includes a dessert. Sometimes a particular customer will say "I don't want the dessert" and sometimes he/she won't... [more inside]

I'm really interested in the concept of the buffet-style, "all you can eat" type restaurant experience.
Is this a Western invention? Does it even exist in other parts of the world? Also, does anyone have anyone strategies as to how to maximize the buffet experience? [more inside]
