House Of The Four Winds

Does anyone remember a Chinese restaurant in Manhattan called The House Of The Four Winds? I've heard of it because I read on Wikipedia that the 1976 Genesis album Wind And Wuthering was partially named after it, (the Wuthering part was named after Wuthering Heights.)

Hannibal Season 3

This post contains spoiler alerts.

Last week Hannibal was finally captured. The last six episodes of the series will deal with Francis Dollarhyde, (also covered by the movies Red Dragon and Manhunter.) I assume this means the elaborate cooking scenes will mostly be over, (who knows I could be wrong.) It was great while it lasted.

McDonald's manager 'confirms' that the secret menu exists

I kind of have my own idea of a secret menu. Take the fries or McNuggets home, (or some other item) and dip them in jalapeno or habanero sauce. It's better than what they got. Once I saved some Arby's Horsey sauce and used them on McDonald's fries, (my life is so full.)

Eight hamburger patties is not going to improve a big Mac.

Berea KY

Thanks anyway but I've been home a week. While in Pikesville I found a place where I had a pretty good meal of Fish & Chips. The good news is while On the trip I managed to avoid all fast food and chain places except two Waffle Houses, (London and Richmond KY.) Also I only hit one Wal Mart, (Berea.)

Berea KY

I made it to the Boone Tavern last Saturday night. The Spoonbread comes with every meal and it was amazing. The area actually reminded me of Mackinac Island. The service was very good.

(don't ask me how many times I got lost in Kentucky & West Virginia.)

Burgoo

I managed to find burgoo at the café at The Kentucky Horse Park. It was a little different than what I thought it would be like. It kind of tasted like Ministrone soup, (maybe it tastes different the further west you go.)

Hannibal Season 3

NBC has just cancelled Hannibal. Unless show runner Bryan Fuller can find a new network it will end after this summer's 13 episode run. We still have at least 10 episodes to look forward to.

Olga Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

It's chapter 11 so they still have a chance.

I like their gyros, but every time I eat one I still feel a little bit hungry.

Olga Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

Olga's, a chain located largely in Michigan, has filled for chapter 11 bankruptcy. They are known mostly for their gyros, (but they have other items like muffins and salads.)

Hannibal Season 3

Did anyone out there catch the third season premier of Hannibal? This season it seems the episode titles will be named after Italian food reference, (the first two were French and Japanese.)

(I liked the fact that their was a mini X Files Reunion or sorts: David Duchovny on Aquarius and Gillian Anderson on Hannibal. I heard a real X Files reunion is in the works.)

Jeopardy Winner

Today seven time jeopardy winner Greg Seroka lost. His total earnings were roughly 180,000$. The announcer said he is a professional chef. Like all professional chefs I assume he going to use the money to open a restaurant, (though I could be wrong.)
I'm just wondering is 180,000$ is enough to open a decent place?

Supermarket music

When I worked at a supermarket more than 20 years ago I remember the Muzak system playing two songs:
Allman Brothers Little Martha
The Theme From Thirtysomething

The other stuff I forgot.

Still Two Howard Johnsons left...who knew?

I was at the one in Bangor Maine almost three years ago. It was a little run down at the heels. The clam sandwich was good though.

Horrible Restaurant Names

This wasn't a restaurant but a gift shop in Walnut Iowa off I80. It was called Sophie's Choice, (maybe they should have seen the movie.)
