What Was Your Superbowl Beer?

I just had a bottle of this for the first time in a long while, and believe it is excellent because of the superb melding of all kinds of hop flavors and aromas. SN did a particularly great job with this beer. It would be my choice for a hop-lover's session ale.

do they have any good belgium dark beers

Yes, it was the Stella reference, but also the lack of typical references to Belgian styles, such as "dubbel" and other language that would normally point me toward dark Belgian ales.

Armchair Food Travel in Japan

Also in Hokkaido is Lake Saroma, which I believe is part freshwater and part saltwater. The oysters from there are fabulous -- I've had the one-year oysters, which are very small, and superbly delicious.

Thank you, Steve, for mentioning this. Overall, I have found the documentaries on NHK to have really great camerawork.

do they have any good belgium dark beers

I have a feeling that the OP wants to find dark lagers, and in Belgium there really aren't any. My favorite dark Belgian beers are expensive. Rochefort 10 is superb, and I call it the "Chocolate Brownie of Beers". On the dry side, Straffe Hendrik makes a very interesting beer they call a Quadruple, which is dark and 11% and has an amazing complexity.

Are crispy eggs a culinary no no?

Tastesgood -- that's EGGXACTLY how I like my fried eggs. Nothing better!
If the yolk is good, though, I don't need any butter on the toast.

Kirin to reimburse misled consumers

Too bad, because Kirin makes a series of beers in Japan called Grand Kirin and they are very, very good versions of commercial lagers.

Lagunitas sues Sierra Nevada – then doesn’t

I think it was done for publicity. In no way do the two renderings of IPA look similar.

Anchor Steam plans pop-up at stadium

As far as I know, the name of the company is Anchor Brewing and their most famous product is Anchor Steam. May be so many people make the unnecessary leap in their minds before writing.

Yes, but credit also to J.L. for the pictures so great they make my stomach rumble. The brussel sprouts photo is terrific for the color and angles presented.

Driving from LA to SF on 101, where to stop?

I once noted that Gonzales had very little in the way of good Mexican food, but King City was by far a whole lot better. Perhaps the Iceland vs. Greenland effect?

The plague of clueless bartenders

WOW, only once a week to clean the lines? Most places I go to clean their lines far more often. Once every other day seems typical.

Anchor Steam plans pop-up at stadium

I really don't think Anchor Brewing would even consider or allow the product to be watered down. After all, this is a showcase for their products, and is not even in the area where baseball is played.

Driving from LA to SF on 101, where to stop?

It's really become a habit for me, but the sheer variety of good Mexican restaurants in King City means I am most likely to plan my trip around a KC visit.

Great confidence in your experience, Sunshine.
It sort of mirrors mine with acupuncture. I have no idea why, but acupuncture works. Yeah, there is a fair amount of what some will call woo woo with acupuncture, but there have been several cases where acupuncture worked remarkably fast. One of the most notable was a totally frozen shoulder, which can be slowly cured with steriod injections, but instead I went for acupuncture and the shoulder was free and painless in about 90 minutes. Yeah, I would be open to chiro, too, in the absence of acupuncture.

Chances are 90% that the contents are good, but give them a taste before you plan on making it your dinner. Have an alternative ready.

TJ's Grade B is darker and deliciouser. I also recommend it.

Dou'ssant

Isn't a Dou'ssant someone who receives an arbitrary douching?

Your kitchen in a word (or two, or three...)

Isn't that Latin for "fish of the day"?

Hibachi Grill Buffet Replaces World Buffet in West Covina With All You Can Eat Pork Chops

Actually, chinese sausages alone are special for me.
Either that or steamed pork.

All-you-can-eat pork chops, tofu with shrimp paste... hmmmm, they must serve one other item that they can configure into some sort of Triple Treyf Special.

More superb beer writing on this on Chowhound! This is excellent work, and Chowhound is lucky to have the piece.

A tribute of sorts to A-1 steak sauce, perhaps the worst steak sauce ever.

Another vote for Pickapeppa Sauce -- I love it, but I also like A1.
