What's your favorite Happy Hour deal in the Village? East or west village is fine.
Does anyone know where I can find some Desperados Beer (wikipedia link) in the New York area? I'm willing to go just about anywhere in the New York area if you have actually seen this and purchased this from a store... any help will be great! Thanks!
I feel like the posts where you guys do taste tests should be more easily discoverable. For example, on your most recent Best Bagel post, these are the tags:
Tags: Absolute Bagels, Bagel Hole, Bagel Oasis, Bagelry, bagels, best bagel in New York, Brooklyn Bagel, Dunkin' Donuts, Ess-A-Bagel, H&H, Hot Bialys, Lender's Bagels, Murray's Bagels, Terrace Bagels.
But it doesn't help me if I read this post, and think, "Oh yea, they also did a taste test for pumpkin beer, and moon cake, how do I find those?..." Maybe like a "Best Of" or something?
Just a thought.
Do you have a favorite Chinese bakery you visit for those yellow almond cookies?
I haven't had one in a while and have a craving for it.
It's the end of the summer, and I want to try to make some corn dogs at home. So, anyone made any corn dogs at home lately? Did you like the result? And are you willing to share your recipe with me?
After seeing the Le Gamin review here on SE:NY, I'm curious if anyone out there knows where else to get merguez around NYC.
If there are multiple places, which ones are your favorite? Is it budget friendly?
Did anyone else see this?
Would you use that to store your recipes and put that thing in the kitchen?
What are some of your favorite cafes in Manhattan with free wifi and decent coffee or tea?
The really important thing is a steady wifi connection in this case. I know at many coffee shops, you can piggyback off of unsecured networks. But... where do you go when you want to linger and type up something?
And when you go, do you feel compelled to tip extra because you're using the free WiFi? Or buy an extra scone or something?
If you live by a Jack in the Box... go here:
and get some free curly fries. woo! only for today (Feb 10th)
I read that the Brooklyn Flea moved to Dumbo, so went to check it out. Now it's indoors, 1/4 of the size, and it's only antiques and clothes. No food at all.
Did I miss something?
How often and when do you eat your vegetables? 3 days a week? For dinner? Which ones do you eat most often?
It's the new year and I guess it's one of my resolutions. And I figure easy = more often consumed. So I want to find easy.
I read about how Australians love beets on their burgers.
How many of you like beets?
How many of you add it to burgers?
Researchers are conducting an experiment in the Netherlands that will reveal more about how we make food choices. Can you really taste the coffee? And organic milk?
Quoting the article:
"Put the same coffee in four mugs of different colors and ask people which is stronger. Men likely will point to the brown mug. Women are less likely to be fooled, Koster said.
For months, he said, customers bought milk from a vending machine. One day, the label was changed to indicate the milk was organic — prompting some people to comment that it tasted funny."
I wonder how many Serious Eaters would say they fall out of the realm of the study. That they can always taste the coffee and always the organic milk. I wonder how many of those participants would list him/herself as a 'serious' eater.
Anyone familiar with good places to eat around Detroit?
I'm looking for anything from a good burger to fine dining. No Asian cuisines though since I could probably find better here in NY. (Unless there's some mindblowing Asian place in Detroit...)
Price range can vary but obviously the more affordable it is, the more I'm inclined to try it (given the economy and all).
Anyone out there have a favorite way of braising pork belly? I'm in the mood for fatty food that makes ya feel nice and warm inside... mmm..
It's just always so delicious at restaurants so I want to try it at home. And how much is it to buy at the supermarket anyway?
In the most recent $25 and under in the NYTimes, there was a line that stuck out,
"isn’t even really Cambodian; Cambodian-inspired is more like it."
Maybe I don't read enough food literature, but we rarely read about things like, "it really isn't French, but French inspired." or "it really isn't Italian, but Italian inspired.
Am I missing something?
Do we place an emphasis on authenticity of Asian food the way we do not for European food? This is my my casual observation, perhaps there are stories that'll debunk this view.
Frank Bruni wrote about his Italian Standouts list, "After I moved back to the United States in 2004, Italian friends constantly said, “It must be so frustrating to be stuck with the Italian food in New York.”
Does it seem like authenticity matters more for Asian cuisine? And for that matter, Latin American cuisine?
Hey, how about a tag for the reviews that Ed does on Wednesdays? I want to be able to read one review, finish, then click on a tag that will then bring up all the reviews he's done to date, in reverse chrono order.
Seems easy enough. I don't know why no one has asked for this yet. Those are good reviews, and I can't possibly remember the name of each one to search for on the top right hand side.
It would just save a lot of time if you just added some tag for all those reviews. Thank you!
Anyone know where to get an oyster omelet in Manhattan?
Where do you go for milkshakes in the city?
How many food blogs do you follow? Is that in addition to other blogs?
I can't keep up. There are more blogs that I want to read than there are hours in the day. When am I supposed to sleep?!
Me: about 15 food and 15 non food blogs.
Interesting blog post at Freakonomics today. It's about Anti-locavorism. In fact it's a guest post written by James McWilliams, a historian at Texas State University.
I like it because of the anti-locavorism slant. I live in New York and I'll eat anything shipped from anywhere. Maybe this will get me skewered, but it's a well articulated argument.
1. Have you had a chelsea bun before?
2. Where do you find one in the city?
Thanks in advance to all the serious eaters who has a tip! :)
Any transplants from the Pacific NW? Big fans of Stumptown?
I'm not a big coffee drinker... so is this a big deal?
Any recommendations for soul food in Harlem? In any of the five boroughs?
From Gothamist: "What's the biggest score you've made at Whole Foods? Over $50 in one day. I don't remember the exact dollar amount but it was three pounds of wild tuna, two pounds cod fish, one pound of walnuts, three pieces of brie cheese, four carry-on bags of pre-made sushi, one bottle of the best quality Italian olive oil."...
