A 5-Stop Eating Tour of LA's San Gabriel Valley for Under $40

Putting in a recipe request for those beef rolls! Haven't had the ones at 101 Noodle, but really enjoyed the ones served at Ma Ma's Lu Dumpling House in Monterey Park.

The Best Pizza by the Slice in San Francisco

@Kenji, as someone who has moved recently from California to New York, it would be greatly appreciated if someone at SE did a similar article on the best Tacos/Burritos in New York. The places that slice a burrito in half are driving me crazy! Thanks!

The OXO Good Grips Salad Dressing Shaker Makes Me Eat More Salad

I've never tried it with mine, but I bet the Blender Bottle (http://www.blenderbottle.com/) would do a great job emulsifying dressings, since it comes with a ball whisk.

The Truth About Cast Iron Pans: 7 Myths That Need To Go Away

@Kenji have you tried using cast iron on an induction cooktop? If so, could you tell if the pan heated more evenly?

For the Best Sour Patch Kids, Go to a Show

@Kenji.. if you can find them, SnakClub makes some pretty awesome SPK knockoffs: http://www.snakclub.com/page.php?idc=4&tid=20

@selzoc Kevin Nealon once mentioned on Adam Carolla's podcast that he does the same thing, and calls it a "Movie Salad".

Can Yeast Really Keep You From Getting Drunk?

I think I'd rather be drunk than farting all night!

How about pouring a shot of espresso down an ice luge?

Chain Reaction: We Try Subway's Flatizza

Watching superstar athletes pitch super fatty Subway sandwiches as fresh and healthy dining options bothers the hell out of me.

BTW that flatbread has more calories and fat in it than several styles of their regular bread.

Meyer Lemon Bitters

@androiduser if you have a homebrew supply shop near you, there is a good chance they carry dried bitter orange peel.

Roasted Carrots with Harissa and Crème Fraîche

Made something similar to this with what I had at home, which was Piri-Piri spice mix in olive oil and plain kefir instead of the crème fraîche and it was really delicious! Going to try it tonight with harissa.

Tasty Burgers and Terrible Service at Gordon Ramsay BurGR in Las Vegas

When I ate there all of the waitresses were ridiculously good looking. I think most Gordon Ramsay restaurants are known to hire very good looking staff. If I were a woman eating alone in a restaurant being waited on by a super attractive young female, I'd also probably come up with silly justifications to not eat there again. The food was delicious and not crazy expensive for Vegas prices.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Thermapen Thermometer

The first thing I would make is a properly made ice bath to calibrate the Thermapen. Then I'd make a big ass burger.
