    so this whole shawarma obsession triggered by a certain movie reminded me that a place a short walk from my work is locally famous for it's shawarma.

    Having had lunch there today, I can see why. They have 4 different regional variations, I went with "The Lebanese" which was spiced chicken + lettuce, fries, & pickles with garlic sauce in a pita. It was amazing.

    Makes me miss Döner kebabs from Germany (well, when I was in Germany... they were typically made by Turkish immigrants).
    So awesome

    Someone else to share my pain! Those kebabs were the greatest kebabs I have ever shoved in my kebab hole

    those were sooooo good

    So speaking of secrets.

    Whats the secret to making a pot roast that s actually fall apart tender. My mother made them all the time but it was never a garentee that it would come out this way. She generally used either a slow cooker or cooked them in the oven at like 200 degrees all night long.

    We've got a regional variation on Döner kebabs or Gyros here called Donairs that is fantastic 2am post-bar food. Basically the same sort of meat, with a sweet sauce instead of the tzatziki, diced tomatoes and diced onions wrapped in a pita.

    Donner kebabs are terribad.

    Well if its donner meat thats the horrible mechanically reclaimed leftovers that they use in the UK. In most cases it will be all the offcuts of meat that have been mecahnically removed from the bones, but are two small to be sold as individual cuts. This can also include parts that aren't as popular such as the animals facial muscles and bits of sinew etc. Basically any leftover bits.
    It's then all mashed up and compressed together, mixed with herbs and the like, stuck on a stick and sent to your local kebab shop where they cook it.

    YOU'RE ALL BABIES.
    SO MUCH POTENTIAL TO WASTE.

    You wouldn't be so negative about Donner meat if it was all you had to eat while trapped in the mountains for months in winter.

    You're only sort of right.



    Donner is delicious.

    Late to the show, read the first couple of pages talking about roasting chicken... if you aren't using Thomas Keller's method, you are doing it wrong:


    And a link to his roast chicken with root vegetables:

    Food thread: if your bread tastes like mold, but you don't see any no matter how hard you search, don't assume that you're going nuts or having a stroke. You are still eating mold, and the fuzz will show up tomorrow.

    The more expensive the bread, the faster it is destroyed.

    Man it's just a lil mold

    Man up and eat that shit

    Also how come Americans don't eat seaweed very much? Seaweed is so delicious. It's so delicious I wasn't even sad when it showed up with a side dish of surprise hot dog yesterday, and surprise hot dog always makes me sad.

    Nori is the bomb. I prefer a bag of salted and sesame oil seasoned nori to most potato chips.

    Surprise hot dog?

    Why would that make you sad?

  • Lost SalientLost Salient blink twice if you'd like me to mercy kill youRegistered User regular
    Nori is awesome, for sure (it's called kim here)

    But there are so many other seaweeds to enjoy!

    I just think it's sad that because they are relatively new on the scene tofu and seaweed get consigned to the "Hippy Vegan Bland" and "Wacky Asian Inedible" categories of cuisine so often.

    I would like all of those, Lost. My favorite way to eat tofu is in extra silken in a soup with a really spicy red broth, and some mushrooms and maybe some really thin beef slices. When it's piping hot, pour a raw egg in there and let it cook. It's the cure for the common cold, I swear.

  • Lost SalientLost Salient blink twice if you'd like me to mercy kill youRegistered User regular
    Yum!

    My favourite "I can't breathe through my nose" curing food is kimchi jjigae, which, if you haven't had it, is hot kimchi stew with slices of pork belly and tofu in it.

    Fun fact: On test days in Korea you shouldn't eat seaweed soup (called miyeokguk) because the slipperiness of the seaweed is equated with your score sliding down and you failing

    One of my favorite dishes from when I was stationed there. I still order it when I can find it in small hole in the wall Korean places. It's about the only time I will eat Tofu though, as I just don't like the texture.

    Yah, the soup I was describing is actually soon tubu chigae, which is pretty much the same, minus the kimchi. I like my kimchi cold and refreshing, not hot.

    I also really like dduk bok ki if the sauce is really spicy. Man, now I want some delicious spicy food.

    When I was in China on business, me and my boss were travelling with 3 Hong Kong locals from our office over there.

    We went to a restaurant and got a whole fish and the three of them were literally fighting over who got the cheeks. Like actually vitriolically yelling at each other in Cantonese in a crowded restaurant.

    I thought maybe you were talking about sundubujjigae! Normally it doesn't have beef in it, but rather clams and sometimes pork, so I wasn't sure.

    Also re: ddeokbokki, which I do not typically enjoy - there is a new restaurant here called meok-shi-don-na (roughly) which not only makes delicious ddeokbokki (surprisingly), the name makes me laugh every time. "Meok" comes from the verb "to eat" and "shi" from the verb "to pee," while "don" is money and "na" is an abbreviation of the verb "to leave/go out." So the restaurant name is eat-piss-pay-leave.

    I guess what I'm saying is everyone come to Korea, we have great food.

    which dish is with cold noodles/cold broth and I wanna say a raw egg on top? Also, maybe called Nangmeon? or something like that.

    Man, my memory of Korea is so old (was there from 87-89) that I forget things, and some things sound familiar. But I *think* I LOVE ddeokbokki if it's what I think it is judging by description and pictures.

    Yah I really only like ddeokbokki if the sauce is super good. I kind of ignore the rice cake. If I could, I would come to Korea and spend a week eating food and drinking and absorbing culture.

    Instead I am a workaholic. :p

    Yeah I'm really surprised! In Korea at least the higher ups/visitors from out of town get super-posh spoiled. Work-dinner culture here is ridiculous, though.

    @Banzai5150 Mulnaengmyeon oh my god I have been jonesing for that all week! I was going to get it for lunch today but now the weather's a bit cold for cold soup, so I think I'll wait for next week...

    are they as easy as it seems?
    any awesome dairy-free sorbetISH recipes?

  • Lost SalientLost Salient blink twice if you'd like me to mercy kill youRegistered User regular
    I think they are! But it's possible that I feel really non-platonic about my ice cream maker.

    Here are some recipes I have tried:

    Plum Peach Lambic

    Beet Blackberry

    Okay I'm going to be honest literally every recipe I've made from Jeni's has been phenomenal so here are two more, melon and sour cherry lambic

    (I did not actually have a lambic when making the plum peach so I added some Leffe because ???)

    I don't really like Sorbet

    or maybe it's that I love ice cream so much that sorbet feels and looks like ice cream but isn't and is therefore disappointing.
