I got tagged by Tera. I professed on Fringes blog how much I did not want to ever get tagged for a meme and Tera being the true friend that she is tagged me at the first available opportunity. After a kick in the crotch like that I feel like you're really part of my inner circle.
This one is more of a travel guide than a meme so that you can look at the list and say, "Hmmmm, I'm going to Kuala Lumpur on business next week, I wonder where I should go eat?" but that's ok with me.

By the way I myself have no plans at this time to go to Kuala Lumpur next week, but I'm open.

The meme:
1. Add a direct link to your post below the name of the person who tagged you. Include the city/state and country you’re in.

Lotus (Toronto, Canada)
tanabata (Saitama, Japan)

2. List your top five local eating places.
Italian Villa (Lewisville, TX) - This is a locally owned chain of two or three locations. This place is one of the best Italian places I've ever been. They have specials every week that aren't on the menu and that is what I select every time. The only time I have been disappointed is when I have ordered pizza for delivery. The toppings tend to slosh off. The last time I ordered though I brought this up and my pizza arrived pristine.
Ying's Chinese/Mexican Jalapeno Grill (Lewisville, TX) - I've thought about taking pictures of this place a thousand times. The foods ok. The service is bearable. And the prices are not completely insane. What I like is that you know what you are getting. I hate going into a Chinese food place only to find that the place is completely run by Mexican's or a Mexican food place that is completely run by White people. I'm biased that way, so sue me. This place at least tells you up front that if you like some mu shu enchiladas with stir fried refried beans then you've come to the right place.
Bone Daddy's (Richardson, TX) - If I didn't list this on here then Q and CyberD would cry foul. Bone Daddy's is our luncheon spot of choice when we get together. The food is acceptable, the prices manageable, and the service is outstanding..........looking. This is almost like eating at the buffet at the Gentleman's Club except their is no nudity and you don't go back to work smelling like cigarrettes and budussy (sp?).
Family Rice and Noodle (Richardson, TX) - I used to hate Chinese food as a kid and would complain if it ever came near us. Recently though I've grown an affinity for it. I think it has something to do with all-you-can-eat buffets. This place is great and besides the economy priced buffet which is what most the people eat, they also have a nice menu in another language which is what all of the Asian people eat from.
Rafain (Addison, TX) - This is a semi-pricey Brazillian Churascurra that is near my work. It's fancy and would definately impress a date. For those unfamiliar with the concept, patron pay a flat rate for their food and then can select as much salad/soup bar stuff as they want. Then the waiters come around the tables with spits of meat (steaks, pork loins, rack of lamb, chicken breasts, etc.) and serve you as much as you want of any of it. When vendors want to take me out to lunch to try and get my business this is where I suggest.

3. Tag 5 other people (preferably from other countries/states) and let them know they’ve been tagged.
Amanda Knight
Ajith Kumar

I don't know who the last three people are, but I hit the next blog button a few times and this is what I came up with. Enjoy!
