Brooklyn Pilsner eruptions rumble on...

This is my second post on the topic.

Any B.P. fans out there getting the occasional geyser bottle? I just got several in the same 6 pack after several months of spew-free suds.

And is this a Brooklyn Brewery issue in general, or just the pilsner?

Looking for the Best Strawberry Shortcake in Manhattan

At this time of year (not strawberry season) even the best strawberry shortcake in town will not be very good.

Indian Restaurants: UK vs. US

It's hard to find a fair Indian restaurant in the US, let alone a good one. Wretched buffets are the best most of us ever see.

Even a mediocre Indian restaurant in the UK will be better than 90% of our Indian restaurants.

the "blood line" in blue fish

The term "bloodline" is misleading; the dark meat on bluefish is slow-twitch muscle mass.

As some other hounds noted, it's soft, can taste bitter, and there's a higher proportion of it in larger bluefish.

And you can't trim it all out of a fillet and leave the fillet whole; there's too much of it.

Are jumbo eggs crueler?

I can't help but notice that high priced "cruelty-free" eggs don't come in large, extra-large or jumbo.

Anybody who knows something about egg production out there?

Worst commercials?

You don't have to hate the food, just the advertising. My nominee is Wendy's.

wonder if you're familiar with these 2 things

I think you're trying to remember a commercial for Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups (Nestle).

What have you been doing that both affects your short term memory and makes you want candy?

Shanghai Broadway?

Thanks! I'm so impressed with your opinions on food!

You haven't been there, have you?

A patty melt isn't a sandwich, but it's a member of the sandwich family. Like the Reuben.

Dry braised anything, especially pork chops.

Shanghai Broadway?

At 150 west 36th st.

Anyone tried this place yet? Some of the "New Wave Szechuan" stuff on the menu sounds good.

A whole roast chicken with onions & sumac on top of a pita? Not a sandwich, but it sounds delicious.

Um, exactly where is this Palestinian restaurant?

How do you make skirt steaks tender?

I don't believe anyone's thought to ask, how do you like your meat?

Correct. A lobster roll is also not a sandwich.

Actually, you can still get a Subway sandwich with an "old cut" if you ask nicely.

Your favorite place to get a slice of NY pizza?

Rigoletto never was NY pizza. Frozen dough.

Is a hot dog a sandwich?

This came up recently. I say it's not, and and conferring sandwich-hood upon every snack involving bread and protein sets a dangerous precedent.

Your thoughts?

Who's tried Fairway's new chem-free frozen shrimp?

I'm understand your bias towards fresh, local seafood, and I share some of the same feelings. I rarely eat shrimp, wild or farmed anyway.

Now, does anyone out there have an answer to my question?

Who's tried Fairway's new chem-free frozen shrimp?

Fairway UWS now has shrimp with their brand name on them that have not been processed with sodium metabisulfate. Anyone out there tried them?
