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)

Small sandwich, powerful flavor

Around the weekend in 30,000 calories

February 2, 2009

Some food for thought… pun intended. Apologies for a weak post, but I just can’t seem to shake this thought…

What is it about the weekend that encourages us to find an excuse to eat like we haven’t had a meal in weeks? It’s not a  secret that I find no greater pleasure than stuffing my face, but even in times where I attempt to be good and watch my intake, up pops a Fri/Sat/Sun and a new plethora of excuses.

It’s someones birthday,  it’s the Super Bowl,  I haven’t seen so-and-so in a while, it’s Restaurant Week,  I’m making up for what Gandhi missed,  Fiore’s is doing the Roast Beef today…

Next thing you know, you’re back to square one, leaning forward to catch a glimpse of the number on the scale over your bloated waistline.

Phew… something’s gotta give… apologies for the rant…

Ugh... Weekend, I prefer the weekend!
