Advice on Chelsea spots I have not yet tried - need one for tonight

I too have never been to Klee, but I do prefer Trestle to Cookshop. I prefer the food at Trestle, it's not such a zoo as Cookshop and there is always the back garden on a warm evening.

New Sonic in Wappinger Falls, NY being built

Sonic and In-n-Out Burger are the Krispy Kreme of burgers ,good quality food but not really worth going out of your way for.

Thai Beef Jerky

I put mine in my bradley smoker, hit it with some smoke for an hour and thne continue hte drying process for a total of three hours or so. You need to taste-test it in the last half an hour or so as it can go from edible to kibble in that time.

Egg in a Nest

Toad in the hole is an English dish where sausages are cooked in a savoury batter, it is nothing like egg in a nest.

How do you like your oatmeal?

Soak oats overnight in a 50/50 mix of water and milk and a pinch of salt, cook up in the morning and then serve straight in the bowl with either ;

A layer of sugar - allow this to semi melt and go crusty


A large spoonful of treacle ( Tate & Lyle Golden Syrup ) - allow a minute or two for this to thin out and then mix it through the bowl.

In Santiago, you will find great restaurants inside the Mercado Central...I second the recommendation to visit Valparaiso , a wonderful place.

Long weekend in Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood

Sublime in FL is good for vegetarians , or Tom Jenkins on the federal highway for BBQ.

Dining in Peru? Cusco and Aguas Calientes

I don't know about the food at AC , but you must go to the hot pools up the hill behind the town ,especially at night, the plunge pool is fed by meltwater direct from the Andes.

Best chain overall?

I had a meal at an Outback in Fort Lauderdale and I was very disappointed , not up to the usual standard for OB

anyone been: biggy's (new paltz), 96 main (pok)?

Biggy's is fine , not exactly pit barbeque, but the food is reasonably priced and nicely presented ,better than average presentation for BBQ.

British Grocery Store in Manhattan

What do you mean by Nestle heavy cream ,are you talking about their condensed milk.

Heavy cream will get you blank stares in the UK.
