The Dark Side of Flavored Coffee

Take your spam elsewhere, douche.

Everything is Better With Salted Egg Yolks

I love the salted egg yolk in moon cakes.

What to Order at Somtum Der, Isan Thai in the East Village

Your grandfather is freaking awesome!

We Eat Every Banh Mi at Lynda Sandwich in Orange County, CA

What passes for your definition of a good Banh Mi place then? Please don't say Lee's Sandwiches.

Market Scene: Alemany Farmers' Market, San Francisco

That's because the darkest jujubes are the best, much sweeter than the unripe greens.

We Eat Every Banh Mi at Lynda Sandwich in Orange County, CA

Out of all the superior Vietnamese Banh Mi places in Little Saigon...this, really? I would be much more interested in what you guys thought of Banh Mi Cali, or one of the more established places.

Reality Check: New Stacked Burgers From TGI Friday's

Well, that looks nothing like the promo photos. You might get a better looking one at Burger King.

Poll: Is Okonomiyaki "Japanese Pizza"?

Seriously? You might as well call a banh xeo a Vietnamese pizza. Not everything round and flat needs a pizza label slapped onto it.

Singapore Stories: How I Learned to Like Durian

The perception of the durian's odor is due to brain wiring, I thnk. I've always loved the way durian smells, to me, it's subtle, creamy, just wonderful.

Snapshots from Tokyo: Eight Japanese Sweets Worth Savoring

Head first for eating taiyaki. Always.

A Sandwich a Day: The Eastman from the Eastman Egg Company Food Truck

That is a pitiful looking sandwich for the price.

Someone Made an Umami Cronut Burger

Enough already.

First Look: Le Marais Bakery, San Francisco

Absolutely stunning pastries.

Snapshots from the Gourmet Japanese Fair at Mitsuwa Marketplace

Taikyai? Don't you mean taiyaki?

Steakcraft: BLT Steak's Strip and American Wagyu Top Cap

I'm all for a good steak but that honestly does not look anywhere near worthy of the price.

Sao Mai, Reliably Delicious Vietnamese in the East Village

The food looks pretty pitiful, actually, but I'm Vietnamese and spoiled from living in Little Saigon.

Open Thread: How Do You Say These Food Words?

@Mawich, I've never heard of "grocery" pronounced with anything other than an "s" sounding "c."

Of Course Shopsins Makes Great Onion Rings

Looks like a pile of greasy, soggy, and limp sautéed onions more than onion rings. I'll pass.

Red Sauce Summer, 10 Years Later: Park Side and the Lemon Ice King of Corona

Lovely bit of reading, as others have noted :)

Snapshots from Korea: Smashing Pastry at Schneeballen in Seoul

A mallet? Is it that hard? Why not just give it a good whack on the counter?

Uncle Boons: Traditional Thai Gets a Soho Spin

Excellent writing as usual, Kenji.

Aaron Franklin Drops a Brisket Bomb at Hill Country's 'Pop-Up Joint'

@tinybanquetcommittee

I saw the same thing, I'm glad I wasn't alone.

Open Thread: What's One Food You Wish You Liked?

Another vote for raw tomatoes, except in salsas, lettuce, and raw celery above all. I cannot stand raw celery and god knows I've tried to like it.

Taste Test: Trader Joe's Dark 70 Chocolate Bars

I'd still eat the hell out of that caramel bar. That's absolutely gorgeous, gooey caramel

Los Angeles: An Overcomplicated Burger at Bon Vivant Market & Cafe

Screw the burger. I just want that egg.

Mobile device view

Did you guys recently change the site design for mobile app? It was working fine yesterday and today I clicked in from my iPod and instead of getting a clean mobile optimized site, I'm getting the whole site as I would see it on a PC. I've changed nothing from my end.
