Asian Food! What to Eat Tuesday

My son wanted some Chinese food, and he asked me where he could go that he hadn't tried before.  That convinced me to make it the question on this What to Eat Tuesday on the Early Edition or WWL First News.

With the Asian food lines so blurred, though, I thought I should expand it to include Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Thai and any other Asian or Pan-Asian places.

Once again our listeners between 5:00am and 6:00am came through strong.  They sent scores of text messages telling us their favorite places and what to order there.

Some of the most repeated suggestions included China Doll, Little Chinatown, Five Happiness, Imperial Garden, Young's Garden and Northshore Empress.

There were plenty of others, though.

Here is the list people texted to 870870:
