No shit. I might be able to have another scallop with my dinner.

I'm really pissed at the moment. I went to Pei Wei for lunch (just got back) and they don't have fucking scallops anymore! Had to settle for shrimp but dammit my mouth was watering for some Spicy Korean Scallops over brown rice washed down with a Sapporo.

Couple of weeks ago I had 3 bean burritos from there. Less than 3 bucks.

Had a bidness meeting and didn't think Taco Smell would be appropriate.

I went in there one time because my Hawaiian freind raved about it. I think I had Lo Mein. It was like eating a salt lick with dead rat guts. I turned it over and dumped it on the floor and left. I mean, I can eat some nasty shit and chalk it up to chance but not that.

He never did go out to eat with me again, LOL!

Never had the Lo Mein. Korean Spicy Scallops over brown rice was my staple there. I swapped out the scallops for shrimp last time because the didn't do scallops anymore and it wasn't as good.
