For Real Stop Baking Your Mac and Cheese
This is the title of an email I sent myself the other day when I ran across another stupid tiktok about making mac and cheese where they bake it. WRONG WRONG WRONG
Here's a recipe for a knockoff of the way the Italians meant for this king of pasta to be consumed- Kraft mac n cheese style. -B
Dude eats Red Beans & Rice (and other assorted cajun slash soul food items) every day at different places in NOLA. (bit of a language alert btw). This spawned my desire to start a tiktok that is me eating a breakfast burrito every day from a different gas station around Texas (I assume all y’a’ll are up on the Texas gas station breakfast burrito thing, right??). -B
Calvin and I are both in love with this twitter bot that randomly picks a spot on earth once an hour, uses google maps to find the closest restaurant to that spot, then shows you pictures of the restaurant and their food. If I could have a superpower it would be to teleport once a day to the restaurant of my choosing posted by this bot with in the last 24 hours. -B
I hope Elon keeps this bot. -C
The Single Most Important Bottle In Your Home Bar
Not gonna bury the lede here: what you need to know is this is a link to a newsletter about home bartending. Go ahead and subscribe to it.
Additionally, this particular issue details the history of rye and gives us some fun ideas for enjoying it other ways than straight. - C
Everything you need to know about Singapore's street food scene
I've been to several hawker markets in the big SG. They are really fantastic. You choose your own adventure by ordering a number of dishes from different stalls that all specialize in one little thing. One is the crab stall ("Chili or Black Pepper?"... Chili is 100% the correct answer), another is the chicken satay skewer stall, one is the rice noodles stall, etc. etc. And there are more than a hundred of these markets all around the city, each with a dozen or two dozen stalls. I want to go to all of them. -B
Where Andrew Zimmern eats when he comes to Birmingham
Having moved to the 'ham a couple years ago I can say that the restaurant scene is phenomenal. Andrew (who I waited in line behind once at Epcot) comes to town a bunch. Here's where he eats. And anyone that wants to come visit and try out the list hit me up! -B
Get that man to Hero Donuts! -C
Popeyes is Perfect and you are the Problem
I eat at my favorite restaurant once, maybe twice a year. It is kind of like going to church for me. I want to make sure it is a meaningful experience, so I moderate myself throughout the year to ensure I extract maximum fulfillment from the time I do spend there.
Popeyes is my favorite restaurant. This article may not explain why, but like going to church, will help explain what a spiritual experience should be like.
The person that wrote the article is one of the smartest sports writers there is. He is nationally acclaimed. And this is his finest work. Which has absolutely nothing to do with sports.
It's square. It's floppy. It doesn't live in a pineapple under the sea. But it is delicious. -B
Confessions of a Chicken Sandwich Hipster
I still need to try the Popeye's chicken sando. But if you have a Super Chick near you it should be known to you that you need to try out the Super Chick near you STAT. -B
How is it possible that, of all people, neither of us have tried the Popeye's chicken sandwich yet?! I'm not sure that any chicken sandwich will ever beat the Hero Donuts one. Who do I call about opening a Hero's here in Memphis? -C
The Hero Donut's "Super Crunch" is balling. I think it would crush either on South Main or maybe in a second tier East Memphis location (near Gibson's maybe?). Apparently here in the 'ham Little Donkey has a new fried chicken sandwich that's lighting up the local gastro-blogs. Next time you visit we'll have to go see a man about a small burro. -B
P.P.S. I tried the Popeye's chicken sandwich at the airport in Atlanta since we wrote the above. It was great. Not life changing but quite nice. -B
