Do You Have A Weird Pizza Eating Habit?

The first bite is absolutely the best, I eat it first, while its hot. I also think the crust tastes better inside out.

No that is something else on main street

A Guide to the Flushing Mall Food Court

I was sad about the takoyaki leaving too!

I 100% agree with the salt and pepper squid, probably the best fried squid for the price.

I also love the hand drawn noodle soup in the corner.

Don't forget the pork burger at Temple Snacks!

What the takoyaki looked like there:

Cocktails: A New Style of Pisco Explores the Spirit's Potential

Pisco is delicious. In Chile, everyone drinks it with Coke- piscola. They rock. Liquor stores will sell a bottle of Capel pisco and a liter of Coke for a few dollars. It is usually tourists who drink pisco sours. Capel is the standard brand you see every where. Los Artesenos is considered a little better quaility. And Alto del Carmen is when you want to get fancy with it. The degree you see on the bottle coorelats to the percentage of alcohol. 35% is standard, 40% is more potent.

Otokomae at Sunrise Mart, Revelatory Tofu Imported from Japan

Sorry, I feel like I am missing something- it looks like you are just eating it out of the container- it doesn't require cooking? That would be awesome

Visiting supermarkets when traveling - doesn't everyone?

YES there is nothing better. I think I got this love of international grocery stores from my mom. Its one of the ways to truly understand a country. All the hanging jamon in Spain- drool! Local produce always excites me as well.

Hey Ed, how was Pizza Suprema?

I love Pizza Suprema. D'aiutos is all about the cheesecake, though I recently had some amazing rainbow cookies that were freshly baked. That corner holds all the classic american staples: pizza, cheesecake, hot dog venders, and burgers and fries (from the Burger Shack)

Ethical Dilemma: Blogging about bugs

I recently returned to a restaurant that I had reviewed glowingly. In the middle of our amazing, authentic, inspiring meal - we find a bug in our food. It was so upsetting. We quietly notified the staff, they were horrified and comped our meal, we left feeling unsettled. As a blogger, I want to report the full story. This is a hole- in-the wall place trying to run an honest business and I would not want any harm done to them. What is the right thing to do here?

A Guide to the Flushing Mall Food Court

There's a lot to love about the Flushing Mall Food Court in Queens, New York. If you're looking for a soft landing in the Queens food wilderness, this is it. You'll find that it's airy, well-lit, and clean. Colorful tabletops host diners slurping hot pot and attendants come around to clean up after them. As you drift around, you'll encounter everything from mango ice cream-topped shaved ice to pulled noodles to kimchi. Here's our guide to navigating the place. More

Midtown Lunch Los Angeles and Philadelphia Are Also Awesome

It was tough to see Midtown Lunch poobah and Serious Eats buddy Zach Brooks leave New York City in January, but he's sure making us hungry over there on the West Coast with his pork belly banh mi and plantain-stuffed burrito reports on Midtown Lunch Los Angeles. (But there's no midtown in L.A., Zach!! Yeah, he doesn't care.) Also joining the ML family earlier this year was Midtown Lunch Philadelphia because, let's be honest, a man can only eat so many Wawa sandwiches. More
