It’s the tastiest sandwich you’ve never had

October 11, 2009

Just a hungry thought on a lazy Sunday…

I’ve eaten so many sandwiches, so many ways…  heros, grinders, subs, wraps, paninis, and more, I’ve rocked ’em all. I’ve written about cheesesteaks from Philly, Pastrami from New York, BBQ from Austin, Hot Dogs from Chicago, Burgers from just about anywhere, and of course, Roast Beef and Mozz from Hoboken.

Yet, after all my searching, there may be no finer sandwich in all the land than the much-discussed Num Pang pulled duroc pork spiced with honey, topped with cucumber, pickled carrots, cilantro and chili mayo on fresh baked Parisi bread.

It’s become impossible to visit Union Square in NYC without eating one… or two.  Go try ASAP — 21 E. 12th St. (near University)

Battle Royale: Top Chef Style

January 21, 2009

 To paraphrase: “We can serve monkey ass in an empty clam shell and we’d still win…” – Fabio

It’s been made clear in previous weeks that the proof is in the pudding…  FOOD MATTERS. However, something has to be said for the importance of confidence when opening/running a restaurant.

Aside from Fabio and Stefan, have you ever seen a group of people more embarrassed about what they do? I would rather see 10 people who can’t cook but at least believe they deserve to win.  I much prefer to hear contestants talk about why they should win as opposed to why they should lose. Case in point – See ya later, Radhika.

Quick Thoughts:

– He may not be a fan favorite, but you have to respect Stefan… guy brings it, every week

– I really, really loved Fabio’s quickfire concept. Lunch is where it’s at man… if I had more than a dollar to my name we’d be in business! It is a cheesesteak, though, end of story

– Anyone miss Ariane? I know I do…
