Teach the Children Well

Other than “Who will take care of me when I’m decrepit?,” Chow, Baby’s only regret over having had cats instead of children is the missed opportunity for passing on its decades’ worth of accumulated trivial knowledge....


Moving the Bar on Barbecue

Chow, Baby
This week’s eating adventures just go to show how much Chow, Baby has grown — not as a person, but as a Texan. Being a carpetbagger, Chow, Baby used to treat barbecue no differently from steaks, tacos, burgers, pho, and the...



No Faux Pho Here

Chow, Baby
Chow, Baby’s first misgiving about Pho Que Huong (4601 W. Fwy) was the restaurant’s location, in the upscale Chapel Hill shopping center. Admittedly, Chow, Baby has been tossing the “upscale” word around a bit too much ...

Chow, Baby
Chow, Baby didn’t really — maybe a little bit, but not really — expect its Taco Bell Cantino Tacos ($1.49 each) lime segments to talk out loud, like on the commercials. Sure enough, once again Chow, Baby had to do all the...
