This is so damn hard!!!

I had to place a large part of my choice on ingredients i saw used, I even had to go back and read it all again. I also put a strong preference on certain authentic dishes ive enjoyed. One Americanized dish which i dont like (Sweet and Sour) had an interesting twist which got my vote. One of the things that impressed me was Grant used potato starch and good soy. Another was the GORGEOUS fried thigh meat for General Tso's and the nice dose of ginger used. I will pick thigh meat over breast most of the time for Asian dishes..

I must apologize but in the anything goes it was a total PITA to pick. I absolutely love Hong Shao Rou though. Its simple straight forward REAL Chinese cuisine. I wasn't covered in a cornstach laden Americanized sauce. Everyone of the Anything Goes looked outstanding but red cooked pork belly took me by surprise.

The TD's keep getting better and better, people really stepping up their game.  

 

Everything entered looks great and I would have loved to sit down to one of those giant tables where the top spins and sample all of them

 

great job everyone

That would be a hard vote! But would be fun to watch. I was on the fence on that but thought of it. Hit the Like button and we'll see. :)

There's two entries I'd love to eat that I don't want to vote for in ways related to their pictures ...

Well I know one of the reason I am going to lose is because I have shitty picture.

Not everyone can afford those Nikon at 1000$

I'm stuck with my phone camera and that make shitty picture.

Even my canon takes shitty pictures in kitchen lighting. Like Chris said, it's more about lighting. Daylight is your friend. Though that's not the only factor in voting. 1010s pic was way nicer but I voted other dish because of ingredients and "take out " presentation. I try to weigh all options not just pics.. though they do play a big role.
Not to mention your pic quality is just fine... can blame that if you want I suppose. It's just the majority felt smokens was slightly more appealing. I think it was the giant veggy/bell pepper chunks that turned me off from yours. His use of pablano and mazano is what won me over ultimately and final plating
