Only four nights meant a lot of fast eating for my first-ever trip to Korea. Here’s a photo-heavy (and meat-heavy…and noodle-heavy) look at my visits to markets, a cooking class, cafes (including a sheep cafe?!?) and restaurants.
Snook brings his English accent and sensibility to the kitchen. Most impressive: his sense of restraint, particularly with salmon.
From hummus to beets and lebneh to tabbouleh to shish taouk (chicken breast skewers), here’s a look at a recent dinner I enjoyed at Cafe Munir.
The space is pretty and the food is pretty—and pretty delicious, too, from the pickles to the tartines (open-faced sandwiches) to the wood oven-roasted chicken to the desserts. Here’s a picturesque look at my lunch there.
So…you’re landing at DCA National Airport (is it known by some other name?) without time and desire to go into DC proper, but still wanting two decent, interesting meals. Where to go? I chose Cafe Aurora and Bangkok Golden.
Traveling through North Carolina, I took meals in Asheville, Charlotte, and Raleigh. Oxtail, swordfish crudo, and chocolate would be among the highlights.
Winter work in Joliet and DeKalb was fine by me, as it allowed me to fly in and out of O’Hare Airport and to get some quick bites in (and near) Chicago. Here’s what I ate.
The snow was falling in Salisbury; not that I needed wintry weather as an excuse to eat pho, of course!
I enjoyed the tender texture to the tongue, with its earthy flavor complemented by the brightness of the tomato and onion in the sauce. In the background is the guanabana en leche that I drank with my meal.
Earlier this year, I made another trip to the Boca Raton area, but this time a bit busier and with less chance for food exploration. But a chance to try Shake Shack and Hot & Soul, plus have the usual pastrami and pizza.
