Where to Buy Boneless Raw Chicken Wings???

Any idea where I could buy boned chicken wings by the pound? (maybe in chinatown someone would do it for me?). Thanks. Call me lazy, but Im not about to bone 100 of these things if I can avoid it.

Any suggestions on where I can pick up some rendered duck fat without paying a HUGE premium for it would be appreciated. Thanks.

Where can I try this? Anyone know the best place? What is it? Is it easy to make at home? Deep fried rice noodles with pad thai sauce? Thanks!

Recipe for Pork Cheek Sandwiches?

Okay - Im going to braise pork cheeks and make sandwiches with them this weekend. Thinking Ill do some homemade slaw, spicey relish perhaps, mayo with siracha, etc. But Im throwing this out there to you guys to see if any can come up with a a winning combo for me:

I probably with braise with the standard celery, onion, garlic, stock - I may then crisp up the pork in cast iron before dropping on the bread? I could go with fish sauce, carrot, thai basil, etc. on the sandwhich? I could go provolone cheese and carmelized mushrooms? Im lost with possibilities. I need a thoughtful opinionated person to tell me what to make. Thanks!

Panang Curry Paste??? Where to buy/order?

Thank you so much! I cant believe how specific and helpful these responses were. I could eat panang curry every night but feel silly ordering it when I know it could make it at home. Now I will. Thanks again.

Panang Curry Paste??? Where to buy/order?

Hi -

Im in love with Panang Curry and short of making it myself, I'd love to know where I might be able to find paste for this curry in New York? Certainly there's gotta be a better source for authentic thai curry pastes than the ubiquitous stuff in the little jar at Associated, right?

I appreciate it!

One Weekend in Chicago -- The Best Picks: Help!

We are coming from all over to convene for a weekend of eating and drinking in Chicago. If you care to put together an itinerary of any favorite places, we'd love it. Not interested in the Charlie Trotters type of places so much. We'll be up very late, very hung over in the morning, and quite hungry throughout, willing to travel and big fans of anything local and good. Thanks much in advance for any and all responses! We need recommendations for a few great drinks spots with good viewing, an awesome steak house (along the minetta tavern lines over say, the palm, in New York terms); an awesome burger; some can't miss late night chow; best brunch.

Charlie Trotter's
816 W. Armitage Ave., Chicago, IL 60614

Croissant Hankering

Without question:

Petrossian Bakery (7th Avenue, b/t 57 adn 58). Go to the small cafe to the south of the restaurant. Incredible croissant.

Bunch of guests in town who want Chinese, and don't want to travel. Any suggestions for a place with Chinatown standards?
