The tapas are pretty huge in portion, aside from delicious. The shrimps are scumlunt, dates are crispy, octopus are tender. There are 4 types of paellas. Four of us ordered #2 Marinera (special $35 for two or $21 for one) – came in one large plate. The rice is tasty, fat and one by one (not saggy and crispy), seafood, shrimp and scallops are rather little taste-less compare to the tapas’ but very fresh and tender (as vs dry … chewy).
calamari, mussels, clams, sea scallops, shrimp
The Marinera and clams are bit sandy – I’ll have to say that there was one Italian restaurant on Bleeker Street in downtown that consistently turned out musuallls that were clean of … but
Street parking, not difficult to find street parking. Corkage is $15.

Charlotte Douglas International Airport is pretty big. Walking from gate E to B5 take some effort – it certainly filled my jogging quota of the year -:).
The pianist and the rocking chairs sure to relax the jittery travelers.

I heard that this eatery is owned by people from Fuzhou. Their food is decent, costing $7.99 for a weekday lunch to dinner on weekends at $11.99.
Buffet To Go
Seafood, Steak $6.99/lb
Reportedly the Madison Square mall was purchased by a Chinese for $30 mil but this contradicts: the Grove Huntsville bought for $5 mil in cash.

It’s the only Chinese restaurant in town that serves dim sum. But the Chinese population is so small, the usual cart pushers are women, now being ‘replaced’ by a white kid and a black kid. It’s cute. Good immersion for the boys and an opportunity for old me to practice my rustic English, at long last, ha ha ha.
Surprisingly, the food is decent, home made (I heard some restaurants are buying frozen …) I was full by the time we left – looked like my Chinglish worked, to some degree. In case you don’t know, pointing fingers work too, when order dim sum, -:) So be brave, give them a try.
Huntsville is the fourth-largest city in Alabama in the heart of Tennessee Valley. Raymond Jones whose father Carl purchased the 2,500-acre farm in 1938. One side of Carl T Jones Drive SE is the farm with cows and across the street, is the modern mall and residential low rise building.
There isn’t a direct flight from NY to Huntsville. Thanks lord it’s a pleasant ride, like a day on the beach. AA stops at Chicago‘s ORD. The second leg of the flight is small, served by one flight attendant – his belly is big so is his niceness.
It’s in the region of the bible belt (the area encompasses southeast to nearly middle of the country. The shape is more like a corner or quarter of the country … rather than a thin belt), gigantic churches are everywhere and imposing. Police officers are hired to direct traffic on weekends.
We’ve lunch at Ding How II on Sunday and 88 Buffet on Monday, then visited NASA’ Space & Rocket Center. Huntsville has three awesome camps. Space camp is one.
Charlotte CLT and HSV are definitely nicer than La Guardia LGA.
