Poutine – Canuck Comfort Food April 2nd, 2009 · 2 Comments

On a recent trip to Canada, I noticed that folks up there had a different type of late night food craving. After a big night in Los Angeles, standard grub is usually a bacon wrapped hot dog (dirty dog) or a carne asada burrito. After the bars closed up there, we saw lines forming outside [...]

Restaurant Review: Fat Toney’s – Best BBQ in…St. Louis? December 10th, 2008 · No Comments

While in the Midwest a couple of weeks ago I was told about a BBQ feud that goes back well over 60 years between Kansas “the world’s barbecue capital” City  and St. Louis.  St. Louis style-BBQ (even has its own Wikipedia entry), is doused in a tomato and vinegar sauce that tastes sweet and has [...]

Restaurant Review of Preem & Priti Brick Lane London October 6th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Since traditional British Food is completely void of spices, it is shocking that Brits have taken such a liking to the spicy curries of Indian Food. Actually, it’s not just a liking, but an addiction…much like India’s obsession with Britain’s national sport, Cricket. Hmmmm. Who ever said that colonization was a bad thing? Back to [...]

Visions of the Bay – San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley August 21st, 2008 · No Comments

The Bay Area is pretty damn cool and it’s no wonder why it has such a loyal following. It is refreshing to go up there and know that such a contrast can exist within a single state. Here are some pics from San Francisco, Berkeley, and Oakland which were taken during a recent trip. All [...]

Restaurant Review of Minh Tri San Francisco August 7th, 2008 · 1 Comment

On a recent trip to San Francisco, I ate at a small family run Vietnamese Restaurant. The visit wasn’t planned, but after a 4 mile skateboard adventure through the cold city, nothing looked better than that sign for Pho. In case you didn’t know, Pho (pronounced “fuh”) is a Vietnamese Soup with thin beef slices and rice noodles [...]

Restaurant Review of B’s Wonton Noodle House Chinatown June 3rd, 2008 · 1 Comment

727 N. Broadway #117 Los Angeles, CA 90012 (213) 680-3838   Ahhhh…Wonton Soup. It was my chicken soup for sick or rainy days growing up. Although I never knew what was in a wonton as a kid, there was something comforting about wonton soup served up in a steaming bowl. Among a few other things, what really brought [...]
