Excellent Homestyle Cuban Cuisine at Jose's in Bradenton, FL

on the real, that cuban sammich was the best i've ever had in my life. i still have dreams about it. it's huge, so you get to eat half and take the other half home for dinner (or an inebriated 2am snack). they claim to have the best black bean soup in the world, but i have to disagree. i found it kinda bland and prefer the black bean soup at columbia restaurant (several sarasota locations).
@kengk - i'm sure you could get it without the egg as they were very accommodating for our party when i was there.

This Is What Hippie Pizza Looks Like

my parents live in eugene and frequently take visitors to PRI without warning them about the lack of actual pizza there. i keep telling them it is a cruel joke to say "we're going for pizza" only to wind up at this place. to me it's not pizza. it's tasty flatbread with toppings. if you are in the area and want to try it, i recommend this combo (it's based off a seasonal pie they did once): cilantro pesto, curried cauliflower, dried cranberries, real cheese. very tasty, but not exactly pizza. also, the crust is horrible as descibed above.

DIY Sesame Sticks

Requiring no fancy equipment, this recipe couldn't be easier—just toss the ingredients into a bowl and stir up the dough. In this way, the cook also controls the type and amount of fats and seasonings that end up in the finished product, so you can really have some fun with it. More

Gluten-Free Hush Puppies

This recipe works well with variations. While white rice flour makes traditional hush puppies, whole grain gluten-free flours (like brown rice flour or sorghum flour) can be used. The resulting hush puppies are slightly denser and fry up a little darker. More
