Smith, what makes a great show, remembering Tom Hanks movies vs. remembering notable life events, the perfectly sized dinner table, throwing a chain saw into a hot tub, Jon Favreau’s ‘Dinner for Five,’ Ooni ovens vs. French bread pizzas, the potential death of season tickets, what a 22-year-old Dave Chang would do in 2021, wearing belts again, and burning down your entire neighborhood with the smoker Jimmy Kimmel gave you.

Seafood

I have also had big problems with scallops and other seafood at grocery stores that are considered high-end (and also very expensive). I have also had to go in and ask for a refund, so I feel you! Try Fish King in Glendale. I go there for my scallops and they are always excellent, and there is also clear indications about what is wild/farmed. Enjoy the pod, thanks y’all!

Great

Great show even without Issac. But since he’s left, I’ve been wondering what it is that’s been missing. Couldn’t put my finger on it until I repeat-listened to the show with episodes with new member Noelle. What’s missing is a good punching bag. I love Noelle, she brings a cool angle to the show but what’s missing is Dave’s relentless attacks on Issac’s—sometimes (or all the time)—hot takes. Issac, though not a “foodie”, has strong opinions on a lot of things and—contrary to his own beliefs—is very diverse in his views of life and talent. That lends well to Dave’s hyper-opinionated persona, because it makes it easy for him to attack Issac. All I’m saying is I love the show unconditionally but we need more opinions and hot takes from Noelle who I believe is holding back and for Dave to slander someone, other than Chris Ying, on the show. As the saying goes, we often don’t know what we have until we lose it, and that is Issac. We need the third member of the Big Asian Boyz club. Love you guys.

Pie Finale

The chemistry between Dave and Noelle is notable in this episode. While I love me some Isaac, he could never be Dave’s Yin to his Yang. I don’t quite understand the pumpkin spice hate - cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, etc., all great flavors. Last year it was turkey. Oh well, I’m not going to take it personally.
