I just read that Tik's former partner at Ban Thai opened a new restaurant in Kettering recently:

Siam Pad Thai, in the Wilmington Pike location that once housed the China Chef carryout.

Anybody been there yet or know anything good or bad about the offerings?

It seems like Thai restaurants are proliferating like rabbits of late!

There's a new or fairly new Indian restraunt in Oxford, Ohio called Rohan India. Haven't been there yet but am planning on going  the end of this month.

We are considering going to this place:

Chef C Gourmet

(513) 745-0666
Blue Ash
4924 Hunt Rd
Cincinnati, OH 45242

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Does anyone here know anything about this restaurant?

We lunched there this past Thursday, and a slideshow of our visit may be found here:

http://s417.photobucket.com/albums/pp260/radians2009/Chef%20C%20Gourmet%20Restaurant%20Blue%20Ash%20Ohio/

This restaurant has been open almost three years and it is owned and operated by a married couple from South Korea.  Young, the husband, served in the South Korean Army and  the U.S. Army as a cook.  It is basically a sandwich shop for lunches and they have a much more extensive menu for dinner.

We partook of a wonderful flavorful home-made  spicy chili and chicken noodle soup for starters, as shown in the photos.  For entrees we had a very juicy delicious rare hamburger, a tasty tuna wrap with really great cole slaw, a generous scrumptious reuben on rye and chicken fajitas with crispy yummy  french fries.  For dessert we had warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream and triple chocolate mousse cake. (The desserts were not home-made but were very good).

Drink refills kept coming regularly.  Our waitress Michelle was very nice and accomodating and attentive.  The place filled up fast as you can see from one of the photographs.

Was at the Dayton Mall this evening, and we noticed that it looked like the lights were out at Cena.  It turns out that they are closed, with a sign posted saying "Sorry.  Closed due to technical difficulties."  (That's a new one.)  Also, there was yellow police tape stretched across the entrance.  This doesn't really affect us either way, as we had only dined there twice a couple of years ago, and had found the food to be only of average quality, and we didn't fancy paying $60+ for a meal for two, yet not having leftovers to take home (but what are you gonna do?  It's a buffet).  Anyway, it'll be interesting to see if it reopens or not.

Interesting.  Also interesting that we've already planned a lunch at Boulevard Haus for tomorrow (had no idea the owner was also the owner of Cena).  That's too bad (obviously).  I certainly do hope they catch the culprit.  Sounds like an inside job to me.

Our lunchbunch member who loves to play with our basic photos of our lunch episodes has been hard at work again and here are his latest two creations fit for this thread:

First off is a tweaked photo of the two owners and our sweet waitress with their names:



Secondly a display of the food we consumed that day:



I think the Black Angus half pound burger and the cole slaw and chili were my personal favorites although the corned beef reuben was very good too.

So how was your meal?


Didn't end up going, unfortunately.  The wife came down with a cold and didn't feel like heading up to downtown Dayton.  So, we'll try again sometime later, maybe after it's revealed that the owner didn't, in fact, ransack and rob her other establishment so she could collect the insurance money.  Not saying that I believe beyond the shadow of a doubt that's what happened, just saying that it's a little fishy, is all.

If by "cooking chicken noodle soup", you meant "running out to Shaddock's to pick up a couple steak hoagies", then yes, I did.

I am happy to hear that their diet coke is better than average

I think many would rate it a 7.327, or perhaps even a 7.328

And all their pies are home-made and delicious.

This is an Amish owned restaurant.

This past Friday found our weather-weary lunchbunch on a reprise visit to Mi Camino Real Mexican Restaurant in Mt Orab in Brown County - just off the intersection of St Rt 32 and St Rt 68:
 


hot and mild salsa with warm tortilla chips



roasted jalapeno peppers and bean dip with chorizo


Mar y Tierra
Filets of charbroiled skirt steak plus sauteed shrimp and then grilled served with rice, beans and guacamole 


Camerones a La Crema
Shrimp and mushrooms prepared in a delicious Parmesan cheese cream sauce


Steak fajita


churros and flan


Lunchbunch minus our greater Dayton member
 

The food was well prepared and prompt and very tasty.

Looks good. I like that take on the creamy shrimp. The beans look too smooth. Were they canned?

My wife and I had lunch the previous day at the Country Inn on St Rt 68 in Mt Orab - we had their  exceptional fried chicken - we learned they are closing on March 1st  and reopening at their new location on March 8th,  just off St Rt 32 just before St Rt 68 - across from Mercy Medical Center  - in  a brand new strip mall - there is  pole sign on St Rt 32 at the intersection of Brooks - Mallott Road;  they are at 290 Brook-Mallott Road, at the farthest  end of the strip center away from 32.

Here is listing notice for job interviews at the new location,  giving some details about this fine restaurant:

I must admit on campbell's barn that the last few visits have been subpar. I have noticed the old guy in the kitchen has not been there lately. Not sure if that is why, but the chicken has def been below standard lately.
    not sure if they have changed something or not. Or the cooks they have now just dont care? Food has droped off and I hate to admit it.

They had a young guy in the kitchen when we were there.

You should try the Country Inn in Mt Orab or on Rt 125 a couple of miles closer to I 275 interchange from Campbell's Barn.  I have been enjoying their wonderful fried chicken for many years.
