  1. Not sure if it fits firmly into your business plan, but a selection of some of the harder to find hot-sauces it something that always drags me into a place. First off, if it is carried by Safeway/Acme/Genaurdi's/Publix/Win-Dixie/et-al, don't bother. However, there are hundreds and hundreds of great sauces on the market, and usually only availible by mail order. I know I personally hate ordering anything that has to be shipped by mail, and will pay more if I can get that instant satisfaction of having it right away when I pay for it. If you have the equipment, even try making your own sauc
  2. Wow, for that price I am going to definately have to seek some of those out. Alas, I seem to be on the wrong coast of Florida (Ft. Myers on the Gulf Coast, exiled from Delaware as it happens no less... and planning to return as soon as this lease runs out in half a year or so, but I digress...). For that price and that quality of meat, I can't see how one would say no. Plus, after watching the Andrew Zimmern 'Bizzare Foods' episode on Spain and learning that the 'mustard' of the crab (the part you show in your fourth picture) is apparently quite tasty (with bluecrabs we always called them

    What browser are you using? It appears to be Java based, so you might want to make sure you have the latest Java stuff installed.
  4. I think the key word here is free. To cause a stampede in any workplace food doesn't have to be spectacular, good, or in many cases even completely edible, as long as it is free.
  5. Eh, I would never write someone off because of their taste in restaurants. I like Olive Garden, but I also like South Philly Red Gravey Joints, random PA/NJ/DE Italian steak-sub-pizza joints, high end real Italian, and everything in between. In general, I'm just not particularly picky. I mean, hey, I appreciate the good stuff, and I like it when others do to, but life is so much more enjoyable if you just dig the simple pleasures as much as the exclusive ones. Maybe it is just me, but thinking someone is no good just because they would like to eat at Olive Garden instead of the local reall
  6. I love the Good 'n Plenty. It is like Hometown buffet, but a lot less ghetto, and a lot fresher.
  7. This wouldn't make a good primary drink, but for an alternate option - Shot of vodka Couple dashes of cayenne/vinegar hot sauce dash of liquid smoke dash of vinegar itty bit of mustard swirled in Call it the liquid BBQ, would make a tasty shot/shooter.
  8. For a while Taco Bell has the Chicken Club Burrito (OK, only two languages there). It was (I think) chicken, bacon, tomato, lettuce, onion, and sour cream or mayo wrapped up in a burrito tortilla. It was also really, really good.
  9. I like Rachel Ray, well, at least the cooking show. I don't watch $40 a day or the talk show simply because I dislike dumbed-down travel shows and have never much enjoyed talk shows. You know what would be entertaining? Having Rachel do a guest spot with Bourdain on his new travel/cooking type show... I have watched the Sandra Lee show a few times, eh, a bit dessert-heavy for my tastes. Some of the stuff looks tasty though, but her personality and presence don't really jive with me. They don't annoy the living hell out of me either, but, I'm not compelled to watch. Actually, the only FnTV
  10. My parents have a Viking Range (four gas burners plus grill/griddle). I have loved it every time I have used it, the burners are very high heat, the grill is very convenient (though I will admit that the grill heats rather unevenly), and they have had no reliability issues whatsoever with it. I can't comment on Viking ovens, as they went with seperate Jenn-Air units.
  11. It is great mixed in with scrambled eggs for breakfast. I also love a hearty dollop in a bowl of egg-drop or miso soup. Mix some in with the beef next time you make burgers, should give a bit of extra flavor. Top salads with it (chili sauce and blue cheese dressing go very well together). Use some when you make chili, or beef stew. Slice some cheese, and spread some overtop. Eat it by the spoonfull from the jar (works great to satisfy those midnight hunger cravings). Really, anything you would do with fresh chiles, or pepper sauce, you can do with that paste.
  12. Most bottled waters taste pretty much the same to me. Back to back I can tell the difference from tap water, but I have no problem drinking tap water in general. In fact, I've sort of become accustomed to the mineraly slightly cloudy tap water that comes out of my school's water fountains... When I do go for bottled I like Dasani a lot, though it might be because the bottle has a cool texture... Then again, the folks at Coke who bottle it apparently add some minerals and whatnot back in before bottling, so maybe that is why I like it.
  13. Rincon Latino is the preferred restaurant of most Hispanic restaurant workers I know. I have yet to work up the motivation to make it down there, but it must be good for these guys to take up so much of their precious free time to go there when they could do the Golden Mile or Washington Ave. ← It is very good. I have no idea how it stays in business, as every time I have been I have been the only customer in the place, but hey, as long as it stays around I won't complain. They do have an odd fascination with putting fried eggs on lots of dishes, but maybe this is an authentic south ameri
  14. Is North African food the same as middle eastern, or are there important differences? There is a big morroccan place around here (which oddly enough is right next to the North, DE strip club district, and they apparently used the same decorator) called Casablancas, which is what has been mentioned before, belly dancers, big show made of the meal, etc. I have, however, been generally impressed by the food there, then again, I am pretty easy to please. But at only $20 per person for a seven course meal and entertainment, it is hard to beat. My favorite is a place that just calls itself 'Middl
