Extra Credit. Which of these names do you like best?

Highlight the following for answers:
1. d. Chocolate didn't make the menu but the other odd combos rounded out an adventurous day of eating.
2. a. Nkechi African Cafe. But they did have soccer.
3. c. Siem Reap, where you'll find me every weekend dancing to Dhoom Dhoom and other Cambodian/Bollywood hits.
4. b. El Rocoto. The aji rojo and aji verde are like crack. However Quan Hop's fish sauce took a close second.
5. c. 7pm. Making it the longest food marathon in history.

"Do you smell that? It's fish sauce, son. Nothing else on the world smells like that. I love the smell of noodles in the morning. Y'know, once we had a food marathon....7 hours....and when it was all over I walked up. We didn't find one uneaten scrap, not even one stinking rubber smelling fish... Smells like........ Victory."

Phrased as a quiz, I like it. And I do love pun-titles. Apocalypse Chow in my opinion.
