The Serious Eats Guide to Grilling

Chain Reaction: Round Table Pizza

I remember growing up, I thought Round Table was the most gourmet pizza you could get. And it was definitely worth the hype and the price.

Now, I don't know if my taste buds have changed, or they've changed, but the few times I've had 'em recently, kinda tasted like a Costco pizza.

An Intro to Icelandic Food

OMG @ the sheep's head. I'd probably be up for taking a bite but that presentation is so creepy.

DIY vs. Buy: How to Make Sugar Cubes

I had to make a sugar cube house in elementary school. I then proceeded to eat the leftovers. Yummy.

Burger Mash-ups: Del Taco

Oh, and Wienerschnitzl (sp?).

Burger Mash-ups: Del Taco

In-n-Out and Del Taco are probably the only 2 fast food chains I miss when I leave California. Never had their burgers though.

'Foodie-ism,' as youth culture

The youth have officially lost their souls. It was bad enough in the 90s you couldn't listen to music without worrying if it was cool or underground enough. Now we can't even eat without turning it into a "cool" contest. When food and music can no longer stay pure, that is the end my friends.

And she tried to separate herself from the hipsters? Most foodies = hipster, in my opinion. Maybe not necessarily with all the funky clothes, but a hipster nonetheless on the inside.

Poll: Do Asian Flavors Belong on Pizza?

Marco Polo should've never been allowed to put tomato on the noodles he brought over from China.

Fast-Food Fried Fish Sandwiches: Popeyes vs. Burger King vs. McDonald's vs. Wendy's

A #1 Big Mac combo with a Filet O Fish. Used to be one of my favorite meals.

Fast Food French Fry Fray: McDonald's vs. Burger King vs. Wendy's

Oh and Adam: Thin crust? Seriously?

Give me the thickest crust you can make. But that's a discussion for another topic I guess.

Fast Food French Fry Fray: McDonald's vs. Burger King vs. Wendy's

@Adam: I know there's no NY way to do fries. That was said somewhat sarcastically as in "I'm from NY. If it doesn't taste how it does in NY, it sucks! blah blah blah". (No offense NY'ers, but well, you know. Not that I blame you guys for being NY-centric. It's an awesome city).

I just get my fries normal, what they give me. I don't ask for animal style or well done, or any of that. Dip in ketchup occasionally (hope that's not a fry purist faux-pas). I guess what I like about In-n-Out fries is they taste so different from other fries. They taste so fresh y'know? I suppose it just doesn't fit in with what some people think a fry should taste like. It's definitely not the type of fry you can stuff in a burger though, which I like to do.

Fast Food French Fry Fray: McDonald's vs. Burger King vs. Wendy's

@millions: No offense, but how many of these people that think In-n-Out fries suck are New Yorkers that think anything not done the "New York way" is a complete, giant, mound of crap?

Never bothered going to Yelp for reviews on In-n-Out, but I'll take your word for it.

Fast Food French Fry Fray: McDonald's vs. Burger King vs. Wendy's

@millions: Well I've been eating In-n-Out fries for almost 30 years, so there! You sir, are crazy. Anyone I've had the pleasure of discussing fries with have agreed that In-n-Out fries are great. Can't remember anyone saying they didn't like 'em. But you know, we all have our own special taste buds.

Poll: What Is Pizza's Best Movie Role?

Sal's Famous Pizzeria.

Fast Food French Fry Fray: McDonald's vs. Burger King vs. Wendy's

Hate to be that West Coast snob and bring up In-n-Out, but their fries are really the best. But McDonald's fries are great also.

McDonald's gets a bad rap, but really, everything from their fries, to their hamburgers, to Bic Macs, to chicken mcnuggets, holds a special place in my (and I think everyone's) heart. Probably holds a special place in our colons as well.

And I agree with above poster that Burger King's fries are a bit too potatoey.

Chain Reaction: Rally's

Rally's?

Dear Serious Eats, you are better than this.

Although their chili dogs (w/ cole slaw) and pineapple shakes did get me through college. Never tried the burgers though. Sounds like I got lucky.

How to Find the Best Food in a Foreign City, According to Anthony Bourdain

The Serious Eats Guide to Single Malt Scotch

Okay, I've been trying to find the name of a certain scotch forever, and I'd greatly appreciate it if someone can help me out. I don't have much to go on, but years ago, I went into a scotch bar and asked the bartender for whatever he'd recommend.

It was probably one of the best drinks I've ever had. It had a very noticeable butterscotch-y flavor, more so than any other scotch I've had. Granted, I was already a little buzzed by the time I got that one, so that might have heightened the experience.

He gave me the name, but by the next day I had totally forgotten it. I think it was some forest-y type of name. The word 'creek' might have been in there, I don't remember. I know this probably describes half the scotches out there, but can anyone recommend a scotch that might fit this description? Thanks.

Reality Check: New Bacon Shake from Jack in the Box

@ESNY - I will admit I probably haven't given bacon a fair try. Most of my experience with bacon has been at Denny's, IHOP (or any other similar restaurant or hotel buffet), or at home with a "leggo my Eggo" when I was a kid. As a result, whenever presented with a choice, I invariably started opting for the breakfast sausage instead of bacon.

But how fancy can bacon get before it simply becomes a slice of pork, and not just bacon?

Reality Check: New Bacon Shake from Jack in the Box

@ESNY - ??? Forgive my unrefined palate. What was that called? Never had bacon that good..

Reality Check: New Bacon Shake from Jack in the Box

Is the "I'm so cool 'cause I love bacon!" fad over yet?

I can think of a million things I'd rather eat than bacon.

It's just too thinly cut and overly cooked to really have any kind of flavor.

From Behind the Bar: On Not Being Creepy

I agree with phaedrus. If there's 2 types of people that tend to creep me out, it's bartenders and bouncers that think they're soo cool.

Pizza Flavored Steamed Buns: Stupid, or Genius?

Actually, I'll tell you what's even more stupid. Mini, microwaveable pizza bagels. Really? You have to make mini baby bagels just for that?

Pizza Flavored Steamed Buns: Stupid, or Genius?

whats so stupid about it? People "fuse" foods all the time. I'll tell you what's stupid. Pizza in a cone. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

The Best Macarons in New York City

@Bunnee I was gonna post the same thing. Other than "looking pretty", I don't get the macaron craze. Glorified wafers, if you ask me. I'd rather have a Nilla.

Thai food near Santa Monica 3rd St Promenade

I'm going to be taking some visitors to 3rd St Promenade in Santa Monica, CA and would like to take them to a Thai restaurant.

I was going to take them to Monsoon Cafe as a last resort, but does anyone know of any better Thai spots in the area? Thanks.

BTW, order of importance for me would be:

1. Distance from 3rd St Promenade (would prefer walking distance).
2. Da Food!
3. Ambience.
4. Price.

National Empanada Day April 8

I gotta find out about this through msnbc? For shame Serious Eats, for shame! lol jk
But apparently, today is national empanada day and some places are offering cheap empanadas to honor it. Haven't found one close to me yet but just thought I'd put it out there.
