Hi Penny,
    Judy and I love Asian food. Most of the restaurants in our area that
serve Asian food, serve either Chinese or Indian style. We go most often
for Chinese.
    I have a daughter-in-law that won't eat any Asian food, (even
homemade), because she believes that they put dog, cat, or rat meat in
it. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Koreans do eat dog, having specialty
restaurants in Korea that serve it. I don't think they can get dog past
the health dept. in the States.
