Comment of the Day

If you read Eating Our Words long enough, you can guess, pretty easily, which topics are going to spark discussion in the comments every time they come up. Case in point: Mai's, which just reopened, as Katharine Shilcutt reports. Commenter ReginaDupuis, for one, is not a fan:

If you're into over-hyped and over-rated Vietnamese cooking, Mai's is your place. I prefer the underdogs in this fight.

It's clear that some of y'all love it and some of y'all don't - and find the attention it gets maddening. Mai's - the new Beaver's?
