  1. my brother and i just had an incredible experience at kunjip (west 32nd btw 5th and bway). we arrived around 7:30 on friday night and yes, there was a line forming. however, we were handed menus and our order was taken while on line...and 5 minutes later, we were seated! 5 minutes after that, our food began arriving. delicious steamed mandoo dumplings, korean fried rice cake with beef and vegetables (my personal favorite of the night), juicy, flavorful bulgoki, and wonderful, slightly sweet yet also savory, boneless pork ribs (the bulgoki and pork ribs were both on the BBQ menu). the service was superb, the food AMAZING, and i would highly recommend it for your next foray into korean BBQ...
  2. definitely thin-mints and samoas... thin mints, when frozen, are even better
  3. their peanut butter and jelly donuts are to die for...
  4. i don't east fast-food too often, but my favorite fries would have to be both wendy's and also arby's spicy curly fries (do they even still have them?? shows you how long it has been since i've eaten there...). least favorite are definitely mcdonalds (although when i was a kid, they were my favorite) - they have changed over the years and are now long, limp, and overly salty (for my taste, at least).
  5. i'm eating an apricot fruit leather as we speak. yum!
  6. Oh I'll be the first to admit it's very chewy and sticky...but the fact that it tastes good and is healthy more than makes up for it...in my book, at least
  7. I am on a health-kick lately, and have been searching for something sweet, gummy, and fruity to satisfy my cravings throughout the day. Upon entering my local Gourmet Garage, I stumbled onto Stretch Island Fruit Co.'s Fruit Leathers - so far the flavors I have tried are strawberry, raspberry, mango, tropical, and apricot. They're delicious and very satisfying. They're sweet, using only natural sugars, and are 45 calories a piece. If you've never had them before, they come highly recommended...
  8. skippy creamy all the way
  9. yes! that'd be them they're delish....
  10. thanks guys! tuna definitely doesn't mean tuna, as there is nothing in the ingredients even remotely related to fish.
  11. i found a new favorite stick-shaped snack from japan! it's called tunaage arare. the 'dressing flavor' is my favorite kind. they're about two inches long and they're like puffed-wheat sticks, almost, only crunchier. i bought a huge bag of them from sunrise mart (on broome street) for $1.99. can someone who speaks japanese tell me what tunaage arare actually means?
  12. Last night, my boyfriend and I baked a banana cream pie on a whim. We decided to go a calorie-friendly route, using Sweet-and-Low instead of sugar. And it was delicious! I wish I took a picture of it - I'll either have to go back to his apartment and snap one before he eats the whole thing!, or I'll have to bake one again. The process was really simple...it took us about 20 minutes to prep, and then 2-3 hours to let the pie cool in the fridge before topping with CoolWhip and devouring! If you'd like the recipe, just send me a message and ask!
  13. i would suggest sunrise mart in soho (on broome street). they have many different flavors of pocky, as well as tons of other asian snacks, treats, and ingredients. yum!
  14. katie - you might be interested to know that tony has quit smoking since his daughter was born

    Apple Pie

    I have a killer apple crisp recipe in which I use both granny smith and macoun apples. It's the perfect mixture of sweet and tart. YUM!
  16. Now that autumn is rolling around, it's time for me to make my delicious (if I do say so myself!) apple spice crisp! Such a great recipe, minimal preparation, and YUMMY results I'll pass the recipe on to whoever's interested...
  17. jeanine - tony already filmed a pacific northwest (seattle and portland) episode of 'no reservations' and it has already aired. so i'd look for it on reruns. as for his personal schedule, i'm not sure when/if he plans to return...
  18. if you're truly interested, do a google search for mandy aftel. she is the reigning queen on this subject! www.aftelier.com...she makes perfumes but is also extremely well-versed in scents/perfumes used in cooking. she can daniel patterson (of coi restaurant fame, in san francisco) collaborate quite frequently. they have a cookbook called 'aroma'.
  19. so which contestants are still left? i used to watch but have gotten increasingly bored with this season and don't really care anymore... but i am curious to know who's still in the running - could someone fill me in? thanks!
  20. my current favorite burger recipe i make is: 1lb ground beef 1 egg 1 tsp ground black pepper 1 tbsp salt 1/2 cup bread crumbs (i like the plain breadcrumbs but you could use italian style for a little extra oomph if you want) in one bowl, whisk the egg, pepper, and salt together in another bowl, mix the ground beef and breadcrumbs then combine both bowls shape into burger of any size you want (i usually make them large enough so that 1lb comes out to about 4 burgers) i usually find that cooking them 6-8 minutes on each side make the perfect burger! (i LOVE cheeseburgers so i usually add **gasp** a slice of american cheese after the burger's cooked)
  21. i love burgers - hamburgers, cheeseburgers, you name it. i decided to make some killer cheeseburgers last night, using my own recipe that always proves delicious, but was wondering if anybody on the boards had some yummy (and fairly simple) recipes for burgers they enjoy??
  22. don't forget - all new episodes premiering tonight at 10pm! tonight - SHANGHAI
  23. i happen to love the food at durgin park
  24. oh my god those poor cows...that looks SO unnatural!
