if you like tart (like me), try the lemon one. good tartness. the heart shaped, which is the passion fruit one, is really good too.

Most of the options were $10 or less. Roberta's pizza I had was $9 while Eataly's ribs were $10. Sandwiches from Resto were $8-$10. Stuff from the HK cart were around $4.

The Serious Eats Guide to Dim Sum

*sad, no love for tripe?

also sad is that a lot of the new dim sum places, at least in LA & i think in HK, don't use carts anymore. you have to order from a piece of paper.

Food Photography Class

Oh and I'm worried that I'll get a mixed of people with different levels of camera knowledge. I guess I'll have to make it clear in the class description. But the people that asked me to teach the class, they seem like they want to make it as general as possible.

Food Photography Class

Thanks for all the tips! Good thing I'll be teaching it along side with a food stylist. This will be in Brooklyn, NY near the end of June.

Hainam chicken rice

It's been a while since I "tried" to look for some good ones here and suddenly just like that the craving for this dish hit me again last week.

Was wondering if people know of any good places for some hainam chicken rice?


Food Photography Class

Someone asked me to teach a food photography class and I said SURE!

But I'm not so sure what to teach and how in-depth. So if you were going to take a food photography class, what would you like to learn from it?

Japanese food in Seattle

Hi I'm going to be in Seattle next week, which I'm prepare to be disappointed since it's right in the middle of the holiday season so many places will probably be closed. BUT! I'm hoping to find some good Japanese restaurants to eat at. I don't want sushi but instead teriyaki, yakitori or ramen joints. Know any decent to good places? Hopefully close to downtown but I don't mind taking the bus.

Thank you

Good onion rings?


I know Ed Levine did a quick post on where to get the best or top 5 best onion rings in the city but that was way back in 2007.

It's so much easier to find info on good fries but so much harder with onion rings. Does anyone have recommendations on good onion rings?

The Vegetarian Option: El Tapatio

A rudimentary knowledge of Spanish will come in handy for anyone eating at El Tapatio, nestled into a dark, narrow space on a busy street in Spanish Harlem. There's a bit of English on the menu, but the waitstaff doesn't speak much. Somehow between my high school Spanish, our server's patience, and some pointing at the menu, we were able to put together a nice little vegetarian feast for lunch. More

Behind The Scenes At Fatty Johnson's

You've just read about Fatty Johnson's—a pop-up restaurant from the Fatty crew in the old Cabrito space. Rather than the restaurant-bar that Cabrito was, Fatty Johnson's is set up more as a cocktail bar that serves food to help soak up the alcohol, like their Big Johnson's Burger and Fried Chicken stuffed with ham and cheese. On some nights you will find Adam Schuman, the cocktail guru of the Fatty empire, running the bar; while some nights you'll find a bartender from some other spot in the city mixing a drink for you.
