A winner, plus quiz answers

We have a winner for tomorrow night’s Dinner Party in Piedmont Park. Thanks to everyone who entered the contest.

Here are the answers to the questions. Query: Would you all like to see more food quizzes on this blog even if they don’t come with a prize?

Nuoc cham is a condiment that combines nuoc mam (fish sauce) with sugar, lime juice, chilies and garlic.

Pano’s & Paul’s, though one reader says Papa Pirozki’s also served them.

A hamburger with lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise.

Seeger’s, Posh, Home, Coast Seafood & Raw Bar.

It is the fifth primary taste after sweet, salty, bitter and sour. Sometimes called “savoriness,” it is all foods high in natural glutamates, such as vine-ripe tomatoes, fish sauce, culinary kelp (kombu), meat, fermented foods and Vegemite.

Mary Mac’s Tea Room.


False. Tuesday is fried chicken night.

I didn’t enter this one, but more quizzes would be fun.

Mr. Kessler,

Technically the answer to the first question is not correct…all you are doing is telling us what nuoc cham is…not what the difference is. Dare I say a re-pick on the winner?

I say the answer to no. 1 is correct – it says nuoc cham is a condiment and the nuoc mam is fish sauce. Technically, I don’t know if this is correct, nor did I enter the contest, but the answer does contain the difference.

I also think you should do more quizzes, with or without a prize!

I went to Bobby and June’s yesterday with a friend who recently had a heart transplant but the line was wrapped around the building. We ended up at Mary Mac’s. Unfortunately, they do not serve complimentary potlikker with cornbread any longer. It is on the menu under vegetables. I asked about it and our server brought one (at no charge) for a table of three. I guess the economy has affected them too and now they no longer serve complimentary “collards water”. So sad…

I enjoyed the quiz, and Googling to find the answers! ;) The hardest for me was the last four restaurants at 111 W. Paces Ferry Rd, not an easy Google at all. Yes, more quizzes, with or without prizes. But we like prizes!
