Ginger Chicken Jook (Rice Porridge)

Filipinos call this Arroz Caldo. Nothing beats is on a rainy day when you're feeling puny.

Ask RuBo: Are Celebrity Chef Restaurants Worth It?

I actually did see Mario Bataly at Eataly. I thought that was weird. I saw him when I ate at Babbo too. Total fluke.

Any good sodas out there with no corn syrup??

I'm hoarding my cans of Pepsi Throwback because I can't find it in stores anymore. Its Pepsi made with sugar instead of HFCS. Way better than the common soda but not as good as the smaller companies. I found a link and apparently they're making a Mountain Dew throwback too. I wonder if it makes you just as JACKED. http://www.seriouseats.com/2009/02/pe...

Goose Island is a Chicago thing. I haven't seen their products on the eastern seaboard.

Red Robin Burgers

Unless you travel to unknown places a lot don't patronize chain restaurants. The one thing they all have in common is their sacrifice of quality for profit.

Red Robin Burgers

You must have a good Red Robin and a bad 5 Guys. Thankfully I have the opposite problem.

Red Robin Burgers

I gave RR a second chance after an underwhelming first experience. I totally agree that the patties resemble meat colored styrofoam. I ordered the mushroom and swiss burger, and ALL the components were dry. I had to resuscitate the poor thing with a good dousing of A1 steak sauce. I don't think I would be able to talk myself into eating there again. Thankfully there is a Five Guys close to the RR and I can get a burger with real personality there.
There is currently a commercial on TV for Wendy's where a waiter in a TGIFridays style restaurant is delivering a plate of whatever, and the price rises as he walks through the restaurant. The premise is that you pay for the "flair". That's how I felt at Red Robin. That burger wasn't worth ONE dollar, much less $9+.
