Utz Red Hot chips

I seem to only see these locally at Christmas Tree Shops - though I have not looked for them in a while.

Iced coffee on Nitro?

Following my Nitro disappointment, I tried some homemade Coffee Soda. Pretty Good, not sure I nailed it though - any recommendation on the ratio of Coffee to Soda?

Iced coffee on Nitro?

Just popped my Nitro cherry. I ditto your sentiments exactly, only at Forge. $5 for about 12 ounces, no cascading, not great. Kinda like the last Guinness I had at Fenway. Certainly not worth the nearly 100% markup over regular iced.

Iced coffee on Nitro?

Just found out this is a thing, has anyone seen this locally? Iced coffee poured like a Guinness, infused with Nitrogen. Looks awesome, has anyone had one and can comment?

Fried Flour Tortillas In or Near Boston

Yeah, just a question of who I wanted to attack me, you or everyone else. I've had plenty of crunchy tacos in Mexico, far from the tourist trails.

Fried Flour Tortillas In or Near Boston

Agreed, but plenty of "authentic" Mexican restaurants offer crunchy shell tacos - which they invented (the shell, that is).

You are talking about an industry that calls something that is 1.5" by 3.5" a 2"x"4.

Boynton Yards and La Hacienda are both spitting distance to Twin Cities Plaza - you might be thinking of Slumbrew's Assembly Row location.

How we'd fix it: Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market

Not a fan of Hogan's Heroes I take it.

Best Chicken parm sub in Boston

I think the "parm" is for Parmigiana (from Parma), not parmesan (which is presumably from parma as well).

ISO: half sheet pan sized parchment paper, NOT rolled, but layed flat

Not local, but readily available on eBay. I think I paid about $23/300 recently.

Noodles & Co opens in Burlington

This place sounds like it should be in an airport. At what time did Thailand and Italy start their war in your stomach?

Crappy Wings Over Arlington...

Yeah, the wings are giant - both wing and drumette together constitute one wing. Unfortunately, they don't trim them at all, I kept expecting to find hairs. The sauce (medium, I think) was chemically and gross too. Off-putting would sum it up nicely.

Any hidden gems for culinary gardening?

Mahoney's in Winchester has a great variety in high season. I was there two weeks ago and the pickings were slim, they did have sorrel and a few other less common things though.

Searching for a great Hot Dog as winter winds down.

What? next you are going to tell me Mr. McDonald is dead and the Burger King was the untimely victim of regicide!

April 2014 Openings and Closings

Yeah, i suspect that is where they train people, I've had a few malformed chickpea sandwiches there. I started going to the Harvard Sq. location exclusively but the last visit there wasn't much better.

Say "au revoir" to Rendezvous

Any chance we will get the Burger King back???

Teriyaki House?

Regrettably, not very similar. The same dish I had a week previous at the Doowee "pop up" was nowhere near as good. The salad dressing was not the same, they threw in a few dumplings in place of the bread. I did not check out the hot sauce situation. Not horrible, but prepare yourself for picture-menu Chinese and you will be in the right ballpark. I tried to pay with cash and they couldn't figure out how to open the register - not confidence inspiring.

Spencer Trappist Ale

Sure, but there are plenty of bourbon barrels to be had if they truly wanted to increase supply. I guess with more great beers available than ever, I can't really complain. Its just that sometimes in relation to the cost/non-scarcity of ingredients, I feel the whole industry is conspiring to gouge me.

Spencer Trappist Ale

As a long time craft beer drinker I don't want to pay more due to false scarcity and hype. I'm all for brewers charging more for a better product if the market will bear it. It gives them incentive to make better beer and the respect it garners. That said, there is generally not an actual limited supply of ingredients (like with wine) other than one they choose to perpetuate. The whole thing reeks of a market bubble to me.

Spencer Trappist Ale

Brewers use commodity ingredients in a process that pretty much produces the same product time after time. How does marking up their goods to wine standards earn respect?


Wabbit season!

Help me decide where to cry about my advanced age.

Yeah, but did you listen to 8 tracks in the car (of your own)? If so I'm guessing 50.

DooWee & Rice Closing

Eater says it will be Teriyaki House - anyone know if that is a chain?

What's up with Redbones lately?

Yeah, and the smell makes it hard to concentrate at my son's t-ball games.

Food trucks at Somerville's Pop-Up Plaza, 9/9-9/11

Good lord, you weren't kidding. Just ate at the new location on Medford street (which probably deserves its own thread now). The porchetta was easily the best sandwich of the year, so glad they are now open.

I think it was Pennypacker.
