Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: The Sriracha Lover's Ultimate Gift Pack

My current obsession is at least 4 days a week for breakfast I'll do a whole wheat english muffin topped with mashed avocado, a liberal dousing of Sriracha and an over easy egg on each with green onion sprinkled on top. Absolutely freaking delicious.

England In Less Than A Month - I need some help!

@conaglio - I guess I would be into that sort of thing then. I mean, I was a tourist, looking for touristy things to do and eat while in Bath. Are the buns the most mouth-watering thing I've ever had? Of course not, it's a bun, but it was very good and worth the fifteen minutes or so it takes to stop in and see the place if you're walking around Bath, simply because it was cheap and touristy.

England In Less Than A Month - I need some help!

I'll definitely second Borough Market. I made it there last February and it was one of the foodie highlights of my trip. In London, if you're near it, is legendary chef Fergus Henderson's St. John Restaurant which specializes in nose-to-tail cuisine. I didn't make it there myself, only for lack of time.

If you're going to Bath, Sally Lunn's House is a must do. The Sally Lunn's Buns are famous. I got mine with clotted cream and even ordered another to go. Directly around the corner from there is the Roman Bath House, also a must tour. Enjoy Bath, it's a simply beautiful and historic city. I'm so jealous!!

Super Bowl Giveaway: 10-Pound Box of Pat LaFrieda Sliders

I'm having a smallish get together at my house for ten people or so. These sliders would help a ton!

Dan Dan in NYC

Ok, so I was brought to Wa Jeal and wasn't told about or shown the DDN?!? I've gotta say, I feel jipped. Add it to the list.

Where are you posting from in 2012?

I'm posting from small town Connecticut about two hours from NYC, where I hope to be moving to very soon (fingers crossed). I have good friends in Astoria who make it hard to leave when I go down on the weekends.

Good eats near the High Line?

By the way, we didn't even end up chowing down on the west side. I was easily convinced that, as a Sichuan lover, I needed to get my arse over to Land of Plenty on the east side straight away, and it was mouth-numbingly delicious.

Good eats near the High Line?

@gargupie - I posted this question via my buddies computer and you're totally right. It was a glorious January day to be out.

Even though I do love it, Chelsea Market wasn't more than a passing thought on this Saturday afternoon. The idea of being packed inside elbow to elbow wasn't totally appealing. One place we did end up stopping into was a total dive bar called BillyMarks West. They've got the whole dive thing down, from the graffiti-ed bathrooms to the owner/bartender Billy handing out White Castle to all of the patrons at random, this place was a (rough) diamond in the rough. Has anyone heard of it?

International Serious Eats Day: February 18 or 25?

February 25th would be great!!! I'm a few hours outside of the city but happen to be coming down that day anyway.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: Southside Market Sausage, Chicken, and Steaks

My boss's backyard. He's now here in Connecticut, but he spent his life in Houston smoking anything he could get his hands on (ahem...food that is). Ribs, brisket, pork shoulder/butt, salmon, turkey, chicken, homemade sausage, etc. You name it he'll smoke it. He also makes a kick-ass Wild Turkey BBQ sauce.

What did you eat this week?

I had the pleasure of spending the 9th, 10th and beyond at my friends' place in Astoria, Queens, NYC for my birthday and I had a great time eating and drinking my way through the weekend. We hit Xi'an Famous Foods (again!) for their lamb burger and hand-pulled noodles, ChikaLicious Dessert Bar for the cheesecake and outta this world amuse and what seemed like every bar between the UES and Astoria. That was Friday night. Saturday was Papaya King, PDT, The Tippler at Chelsea Market, Zabb Elee for Thai and the Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden. Sunday we did the Brooklyn Brewery food thing, Chinatown and New York Mart and William Hallett for dinner. A great, great food and drink weekend. Hope everyone had as great a week as I.

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: The Sriracha Lover's Ultimate Gift Pack

I eat Sriracha on just about everything. Dips for veggies, etc. I mostly use it on my daily salad at dinner.

St. Patty's Day in Boston?

So, I'm headed to Boston on St. Patrick's Day with some friends and I'm not too familiar with the city and what is where. Does anyone have any good recommendations for where we should be partying on this most festive of holidays? It may be obvious, but I'd love to be able to find a slamming good corned beef sandwich too.

Any Cornish Pasties in NYC?

I've just returned from a trip to England, where I fell in love with Cornish Pasties. My favorite was the Steak & Stilton but there must've been 30 different varieties to choose from. I live in northwest Connecticut, but am frequently in nyc visiting friends so if anyone knows of a Pastie place(s) around me or in nyc please speak up. Cheers!

What/where to eat in London?

I'll be in London for a couple of days at the beginning of February and I'd like to try something authentically English, or at least be able to have something memorable. I'm down for a restaurant, shop, bar/pub, or a market. Any suggestions on what to see or do for the two days I have in London are also appreciated. Thanks friends!

Sauced: Chimichurri Sauce

My first Chimichurri sauce was a real revelation. I made it on a whim to go with a flank steak, but was unprepared for just how well this Argentinian parsley-based sauce complements beef. Since then, I've been making it with some regularity, and bringing this Chimichurri enlightenment to others. More
