What Are You Drinking, Jill Bernheimer?

Oh man... I wish I worked there.
Any chance Jill reads this and wants to hire a booze retail transplant from Oregon who's just about to take his WSET level 3 exam and living in Ktown?

Mole Heaven and Top-Notch Churros at La Casita Mexicana, Los Angeles

I'd love to try this place.

Curious to see how it stacks up to Guelaguetza on Olympic.

Where Bartenders Drink in Portland, OR

This list is ridiculous.
You people don't know what dive bars are.

33 Hamburger Recipes For Memorial Day

Patty melts are not burgers!!!!

Dinner Tonight: Chilled Avocado Soup

MiguelD, I just made a version very, very close to yours.
I can attest to the absolute deliciousness of that version of foods mashed together!

I'll be serving it with BLTs tonight.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Every Burger, a Japanese Burger-Shaped Biscuit and Chocolate Snack

I just picked a pack of these up tonight.
They're pretty good!
Very pleasantly surprised.

Video: Alton Brown Chews the Fat with Ed Levine, Part I

I was distracted by his hands, which are larger than his head in the video.

Gadgets: Korin Cutting Board

Wow. Yeah.
Seventy bucks for a cutting board seems rather over the top.

DIY vs. Buy: Should I Make My Own Sweet Vermouth?

Almost all moderately sized towns will have brewer supply shops.
They can get you some wormwood for cheap.
All the other ingredients should be pretty inexpensive as well.

The Best Korean Fried Chicken

Doing it up tonight.
Thanks for the insight.

The Food Lab: Homemade Tater Tots, Sweet Potater Tots, Twice Baked Potater Tots, And More!

I don't get the whole "tater tots are embarrassing" thing.
Up in Portland, at least, they are totally popular and nobody would bat an eye if you said you loved them. Everyone does and everyone admits it.

Very strange to think anyone would have a problem with them as adults.

New Old World Cookies: Trader Joe's Cookie Thins

Yup. Had to sign up just to say that I completely disagree with you in every way about these cookies.
The coconut is extremely coconutty and actually toasty. Not overly sweet in even the slightest.
Some of the best cookies I've ever had.

Maybe you got a weird bad batch or something.

What's wrong with Los Angeles burgers these days?

As of this writing, the last five reviews for burgers in LA were negative.

Is this because they all seem to be "chef burgers" and chefs down here can't just make a good burger and be done with it?
It seems that a lot of the reviews for "stand" burgers are much more positive. My own experience has certainly backed this up.

So, what's the deal with the LA burger scene? Is it a house divided? Can the chef burger redeem itself or should we all just meet down at Capitol Burger and to hell with the fancy pants?
