I recently finished an epic marathon of VICE and Eddie Huang's web series, FRESH OFF THE BOAT. Firstly, for those who have eaten or heard about his restaurant, Baohaus, is it very good? Secondly, Huang portrays himself somewhat as a street hustling everyman, but it seems more like he is just playing this character up. I know from the show he went to Law School and had a very short career in Law, but does anyone know if he really "came up from the streets"?
Thought some people would find this funny/interesting!
The South Korean band called Clazziquai Project recently made this music video for their song "Love Recipe". It features some very cool food shots and loads of coffee paraphernalia from Korean coffee shops. The song is soft and melodic. I just wanted to post it for the awesome food shots and editing. Hopefully, you'll find it enjoyable too.
Perusing for a new lens for my camera, I came across this video testing said lens. The video is of a roadside stand in Malaysia featuring what look to be one helluva burger. Check it out! The bun is buttered then toasted atop the griddle, the burger, which is also griddled, and is where the really exciting part is, the cook cracks an egg, stirs it, places the patty in the middle of the egg, and then flips the "skirt" over so the whole thing envelops the patty. Fresh lettuce, onion seems to be the condiments, with what looks like Ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, or maybe Hoisin sauce used in copious amounts. He also cooks something that might be sausage or a fish cake or a pork patty. Anyways, I have never seen anything like this, it looks so good. Perfect drunk food. Apparently, this Malaysian creation is called a "Ramly Burger". The lens didn't look half bad either...
Has SeriousEats.com recently undergone some kind of server change or something that would cause it to require more memory (RAM) usage? I have recently been having some drastic slow down of my internet whenever I have tried to load any page on SeriousEats.com. I have been a regular to SeriousEats.com for over two years now, and have previously never encountered this kind of issue. I am using the newest Firefox update, so maybe that has something to do with it. Is anyone else experiencing slow downs on SeriousEats.com? Does anyone know how to fix this type of problem?
Has anyone else seen this article about Elevation Burger's new griddle? It looks like a cast-iron conveyor belt of hamburger goodness! Or at least very unique! Apparently, it was created out of necessity as wait times at some locations have become a bit long. I have personally not seen anything like this in all my burger travels. Does anyone else have thoughts about this new innovation in hamburger cookery?

The car website, Jalopnik.com, has an interesting piece on Three-star chef Heston Blumenthal, while he was on the British car show, Fifth Gear. Heston tries to learn how to perform a power slide with his car, then attempts to slice a cucumber with one of his Japanese knifes taped to the hood of his BMW M5. Entertaining and informative! Check the link for the article and the video of Heston Blumenthal's attempt at the ridiculous. Ridiculously cool that is.
