    haha! Got it, I'd rather stick to the old terminology -- chicken broth.



    Thank you. I used the slow electric cooker, threw in the carcass with heart, liver etc, 2 chopped celery sticks and half an onion -- left it at medium for 6 hours. Delicious!

    I was having it every evening after work straight -- nectar of the gods.



    Thanks. Did the classic style with just onion and celery.

    why aren't more wines sold by the half bottle or whatever? I rarely want a full bottle so im not going to buy wine most often.

    Because most people are enjoying wine with a friend.

    Because most people aren't bitches and can finish a bottle in a day or two.

    I'm what you'd call a flexitarian--I avoid cooking/eating meat but I cannot claim to be strict about it. I made this change in November of last year so I haven't completely forgotten the taste of meat but I definitely have reduced its place in my diet. So that's the perspective in coming from.

    Overall, I'd give it a solid B. Chang loves making references to other food memories and it's pretty obvious he's recreating a Big Mac, depressing unmelted American cheese and all. The patty tastes a little weird if you take a piece of it on its own, but in-burger it does a remarkable job of recreating the experience of beef. It's definitely more burger-like than the other popular meatless options in the city (by chloe, shroom burger at shake shack, superiority burger), and it goes remarkably well with his ssam sauce (more so than the fuku sandwich). Fries were pretty good as well (comparable to Burger King)

    Given that Nishi is probably going to be mobbed for a while, i don't expect it to become a regular part of my diet unless the place gets a little less crazy. OTOH the strict vegans I befriended on line were losing their shit.

    I could see the beef working in tacos and chilli, and others well seasoned dishes, or shake shack/in and out style burgers but I'm not sure I could see it replacing a pub burger. I'm definitely looking forward to when the ingredient becomes liberated from Changistan and other chefs can take a crack at it (an impossible beef bolognese is my dream)
    All that being said, I drunkenly got a Roquefort burger last night from the spotted pig and this doesn't even come close. Then again that's one of the burgers I've ever had, so that's possibly an unfair comparison.

    If you wanna check it out, head there maybe 20-30 min before it opens and you shouldn't have a problem.

    Does anyone actually enjoy minerality in wine?

    Only people with good taste so I can see the source of your question.

    HURDURDURURURURURUR Piob.

    What's the appeal to it? It doesn't taste good to me, it's an unpleasant mouthfeel... I'm only getting into wine now and I don't know how far down the rabbit hole I will go.

    Go to a decent wine store, and if the help seems knowledgeable, get a bone dry Mosel Riesling with minerality.
