    Taiwanese night markets... 12 flavors of mochi, caramelized corn on the cob, deep fried everything, exploding cage puff crackers, aloe drink, glutinous oyster omelette w. random brown sauce, tako yaki, grilled chicken heart skewers, cho doufu, slate-grilled wild boar. I am not proud. Well, maybe a little.

    I have to say, even though I previously ragged on Bourdain for his most recent "drunken hotdog" stuff, I just saw the Libya episode of his new CNN show and it was intense. Not a lot of food coverage, but the human stories of the revolution were really good.

    Stolen from my roommate's instagram. Made poutine on Saturday and was very pleased. Other roommate had brought back the curds and poutine sauce from a trip to Canada earlier in the week.


    For next time, any recommendations for a particular brand of poutine sauce that we should get?

    FWIW, that belgian fries place in St Marks makes a mean poutine.

    You can buy packets of St Hubert poutine sauce mix, but IMO fresh gravy is best.

    Good to know, thanks.

    We had tried to do it right, with skin-on fries, and getting the sauce super hot then dumping it on and all that, but our Poutine sauce came in a can and not a packet. I want to say the brand was something like Carriers? The Canadian said it wasn't his favorite, but I enjoyed it, so that's why I ask what brands might be better.

    Poutine sauce = gravy

    I think most fast food poutines use powder gravy. High-end poutine is where you can taste the love.

    So envious that you guys can get non-fast-food for like 5$
    Around here if you want something to eat downtown, there's McDonalds/Burger King/Max where a cheeseburger is ~1.5$, cafés where you'll have to pay 7-8$ for a sandwich and for real food it's usually around 15-25$ [​IMG]

    There are two good spots though, one "youth"-place where they have solid sandwiches for about 5$, and at a shopping center not far from town they have recently opened a "food court" with 5 different restaurants (italian, asian, american, indian and salads) where you get amazing food for around 11-12$

    I don't get Swedish cooking and I don't think I've been to a cafe, lunch place with above decent food.

    The trick is to go somewhere not swedish, usually yields better results [​IMG]

    I was in Malmø a while back, where I ordered a bagel, which was delivered to the table as a DIY project, with no knife or fork, another place served boiled spek.

    The only worse place I've been was Oslo, where my rule of italian speaking pizza places failed miserably.

    A couple of friends of mine are going to be in Seattle next week, and they're looking for some food recommendations. Any Seattle locals here have some recommendations for good places to eat?

    ^taylor shellfish farms.

    Just got back from Croatia. All I want to do is grill whole fish and drink table wine. I never felt sick after large rich meals, which i do often on stateside meals. Seriously considering medditeranean diet.
    Anyone seen pag cheese in the USA? Amazing sheep's cheese. Brought home a wheel.
