Bacon Avocado and Tomato Sandwich

I know this looks like a take on a BLT, but it’s not. What this sandwich is though, is amazing. It’s an elevated version of avocado toast. Avocado is amazing. Avocado toast is even better. But a bacon avocado and tomato sandwich is a crunchy, savory and tangy dream. The simplicity of the sandwich makes it…

Bart and Urby’s Summer Heyna

I’m just going to let you scroll back up to drool over these sweet potato slices topped with brown sugar and bacon again. Good? Okay, good. If there’s one thing we love about Bart and Urby’s it’s the wings. Well, the patio, and then the wings. Well, the Monday Happy Hour specials, and then patio,…

No Peking…Chef!

It’s hard to go wrong with the food at Peking Chef. Pretty much any restaurant we’ve ever been to, there was at least one person was unhappy with at least one dish. But there’s never been a complaint. Once. (At least not that they would dare tell me.) It could be that Peking Chef is…

Streets of NYC Food August 2012 Trip

Wake, drive, find train, deposit self under World Trade Center Towers. Spy hot dog. Eat all the dogs in NYC. Or at least that was the plan. Whiskey Beard left NYC the way he entered it, with a belly full of tubed meat. Street Side Hot Dogs (First stall to the left after exiting the…

A Good Time Summer Wrap Up

“And had a really, really, really good time” -Macklemore Here’s to everywhere else we ate this summer. Festivals, fairs, backyards, and maybe a bar or two. Kielbasa Festival, Pittston, PA These are Butterfly Chips. From what I gather, it’s a potato on a motorized thingamabob that churns out one large chip. Regardless of how it’s…

Mexican Street Corn (Elote)

Summer’s coming to an end but it’s still easy to get your hands on some wonderfully sweet local corn. This is a simple way to spice it up and if you’re like me fight tooth and nail to keep summer style nomming alive as long as possible. I first found out about this delicious take on…

80th and What?

Note: Getting directions from Nobakeleni is about as effective as asking a chimp to recite Shakespeare. This is where we begin the journey. After a rousing game of ‘where in the hell are you taking me’ and ‘so you don’t actually know where we’re going’, Nobakeleni and I ended up in midtown Manhattan. Now I’ve…

Papa Rellena Recipe

While in Miami a few years ago I wandered into a small Cuban restaurant looking for a snack. What I found was great ball potato bliss. A Papa Rellena is a meat stuffed potato ball that is then deep-fried till golden brown. I don’t know what more I can say other than make these and…
