Ed's dumpling face
Ed tucks into Max's favorite dumplings on the streets of Flushing.
Peking duck faces
Niki came across ham at a Portuguese grocery in Newark. Love at first sight.
When you're eating dumplings in the park, things get messy. Improvise!
Off-site at Balaboosta
The best office lunch
Omg Balaboosta, we love you and your hummus and falafel and pita and fries and salads and dips so much.
The Serious Eats team
Say hello to the Serious Eats team! (Including Yuba and Hambone, but you probably know who they are already.) The only one missing is Niki, who had to leave early. Aw.
Niki and Yuba
Niki fit in a bit of Yuba time before she had to leave. This girl's got her priorities straight.
Stretch those arms/front legs!
Yuba is a calisthenics master!...with a little help from Kenji.
Here's a Yuba close-up because aw.
Too much dog?
While Niki was cuddling Hambone, Kenji noticed something was missing.
Yuba, master of Niki
Yup, that looks about right.
A new friend?
Hambone and Yuba sniffled around the lobster for a bit, then...ran away.
Yo Doc Ricky!
Dr. Ricky, the man behind Science Based Cuisine stopped by the office during his trip to New York to help us taste sandwiches and pizza. He poses with fellow science-lover Kenji here on his way back to Houston.
Everyone eat the closest thing!
Mostly pizza, or Hambone, in Kenji's case.
Mm, buttery burgers
We put our Food Lab kitchen intern Luke on burger duty this week. Shove a few lil' blocks of butter in there. Yup, that's good stuff.
Playtime with Hambone
You want the squeaky toy, Hambone? Yes you do!
