Things that are making you happy*******food and drink edition****** - Page 226
I'm going to spam some products that some of my friends sell, 1) Because they make me happy, and 2) Because I own the forum, and I think that helping out friends is important.
1) The ekogrip glove. I dunno. It just seems fun, because who doens't want to throw pieces of super hot turkey at drunk uncle Jeb?
The other is something my wife uses, and that I do too, because nothing messes up clothes like splattering grease:
The second is also owned by two female friends of mine who are pretty hot (one was a olympic level volleyball player, the other a model), so their site is more fun to look at than some others: http://www.greenfulproducts.com/media.html
You should have hit me up for Chinese food recs. The Cantonese food in Vancouver is second only to Hong Kong and maybe Toronto, and I would have told you the best places to get dim sum, something that really can't be beat as a way for getting stuffed in the middle of the day.
I finally got a chance to go to L'Arpege for the lunch surprise tasting menu. Everything about the meal was fun. Over 3 hours, 20+ plates, and each dish had that little spark of genius that just made you smile when you ate it. The price is also a steal considering that I think I got just as many courses as the people getting the fixed menu, just less canonical stuff. Honestly this is the only tasting menu I've had that's exceeded my expectations, by far.
Only small disappointment is I wish I could speak French because Passard was constantly in the dining room chatting with the regulars and even French speaking one-timers. I did not get those strawberries.
Edit: here's the menu, from memory:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Hija de sanchez in Copenhagen. Best tacos ive ever had, even after ten years in LA. Made by a ex noma chef.
Just discovered this CCTV English series "Discovering Chinese Cuisine": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sijUq_Gxyu4
Shot quite well and very informative, and it really shows how complex Chinese cooking is, something that I feel is hard to find / never explained, even in China. There are multiple parts, I just linked the knife one cause it looks really cool.
