The Yolk Rock Hill SC

The Yolk just reopened at it's new location in the Food Lion Shopping center on Mount Gallant. It's so delicious, we sampled chicken and waffles, Mojo Hash, chocolate pancakes and some kind of crazy, vanilla French toast with buttercream today! So worth the journey from Charlotte.

Asheville Blind Pig

Thanks for the head's up!
Blind Pig is always a great theme, menu and draws a great crowd. Here's a little two minute video of the one I attended in the Summer. https://vimeo.com/96438299

Best Saturday Brunch Bangkok

I agree with other post about most of the hotels have huge buffets every day and usually more elaborate on the weekends. I stayed at Swissotel Nai Lert Park, every day breakfast was fantastic! Just stayed at Lebua at State Tower - their breakfast was poolside and amazing too! Great options for whatever you are in the mood for!

Totally on a different sidenote, maybe noodles for breakfast one morning?? Odean Crab Noodle Shop

Wedding at restaurant - tipping question

Chefs and managers rarely get tipped, so it's a very generous thought! I would have an envelope marked (or prepaid credit card) with their name and slide it to them or as another post said a bottle of scotch. But any booze would do! Either way, it will make them all warm and fuzzy. Good on you!

black burgers and other limited-edition and novelty items at fast-food establishments

I went barreling into Burger King to try the Black Burger, quickly denied because it was Sept. 16. I was too early and leaving the next day. I will never know. Did it taste good? Or was it gross just like fast food.

Does anyone ever order hot water with lemon?

I worked in a wine shop and we didn't have coffee or hot tea, a lady asked me for hot water once, I just told her no. She looked at me like I was crazy, but I refused to go boil water on the stove for her. (it's a tiny shop with 50 seats, I was the only one working) It is pent up rage from all the hot tea drinkers in my twenty years of waiting tables.

You would not believe the cursing in the kitchen when hot tea is involved. Then if it's all the steps and you don't ring it up! GRRRRR So ridiculous, yet so funny and true!

Taco Shop Hot Sauces

Have you made hot sauce before? I would do it outside if can, or at least near an open window. Some people coat their hands with oil, I use straight up gloves. Remember not to touch your eyes and be extra careful if you go to the restroom.

And buy some Marie Sharp's off of the interweb.

Bangkok's Top Restaurants Guide 2014

I'm leaving for Bangkok on Tuesday! Not food related, but I'm getting tourist in Thai tattooed on me!!! This is my second trip and no one dumbed down the food for us. When you are smiling, happy to order everything and excited, they are happy to serve you too!!! I don't even recall eating anything average, food was fresh and delicious everywhere we went. In fact, my biggest disappointment was Nahm, it was still good, but I prefer unchartered territories. I will make a video diary on my return, find me on FB poprockphotography

Asheville - Lukewarm Food

I've had the same problem at Biscuit Head, congealed gravy, not so good! I guess we could ask them to make sure everything is hot when ordering. Seems weird to have to remind a restaurant we would like hot food. But this is when I think life is good, when gravy is my problem.

Charlotte - Higher fat Yogurt recommendations?

There's Stoneyfield Farm whole milk vanilla, it's usually the large portion and there's a new one on the market Noosa, it's so delicious!! My favorites are lemon and blueberry!

Transporting wine and spirits in car for 6 hours

Just like Sunshine842 said if you park your car, park in the shade. I keep my alcohol in a cooler bag with one hard, plastic frozen ice pack in it. One of the heavy duty ones or two wimpy frozen packs. This way, if you want to stop to eat(of course this is the only reason for road trips)you have no worries!!

Best white wine for a white peach sangria?

The best Sangria ever was in Porto made with white Port. Amazing! If I ever return my first stop would be Bull&Bear for white Sangria and I would drink it everyday.

We also drank Porto Tonic, so if you buy a bottle you can try it too, white Port, tonic with slices of lemon.

Papas and Beer is fine for convenience but not for a taste of Asheville. It might even make you a little sad

Long Gone But Not Forgotten! Manhattan Memories

I used to go to Florent, I thought how progressive they were with just the grape varietal and price on the wine menu. I would walk there by myself scared half to death! Also cash only, they would take an out of state check!! I was floored.. That's how long ago! Checks!!!

Check out Punk Wok on Monday nights at MG Road, Rhubarb and Seven Sows. You must get the steak tartare at The Admiral. If you like dive bars, the Double Crown is a hop, skip and a jump away from The Admiral. I like Limones too. If time permits, don't limit yourself to one stop, go to two or three restaurants a night.

Raleigh Near Marriott City Center

You are in a really good location as far as walking and food! Like D R C said, Poole's is an excellent point, I also am dying to eat dinner at her coffee shop Joule, I went in there for coffee one morning and the previous evening specials were on the board it sounded fantastic!!

And while were at it, you might as well go to her bar too! Fox Liquor Bar! If you like destination cocktails, go to Foundation too.

If you like spicy food go to Bida Manda, - make a reservation!

Check out Buku, Mo's Diner, for lunch I would check out Centro (Mexican) and Spize (Vietnamese, especially if you like Bahn mi)

Marsala wine

This is one instance that more expensive is better and I don't even want to write those words!! Just don't buy the rock gut bottom of the barrel. Sometimes they have expensive half bottles too.. And it's not crazy the more expensive is in the $10 to $20 range. I like dry and sweet, so whatever you grab will be great!!

When I make Marsala, I prefer it brothy not thickened gravy, before I serve it I put a dollop of butter in it!! It's perfect for a dinner party because it's easy and you can put it in the oven on low and let it sit there. I also love to serve it with angel hair pasta tossed with pesto or mashed potatoes, what a decision!!!

Fresh mushrooms taste better and buy more than one varietal and add onion if you like.
