    Slow-roast short ribs?

  5. I don't post much, but I frequent these forums on a daily basis. I joined back in my mid 20's, and all the regular egulleteers are perpetually in their mid-20's in my head, even though I have aged and had to deal with similar issues with my grandparents, and now my parents generation.

  14. Had a wonderful dinner last night at Twisted Filipino Popup. Chef LaMagna aims to introduce more diners to the cuisine of the Philippines. Link This was my first time at a popup, so not sure what to expect. The dinner was coordinated by Feastly which made the process easy. It was an enjoyable evening, with communal tables and lot of entertaining chit chat. The highlight of the evening for me was the sticky rice with bone marrow, it was luscious, bright and bitter in the right places.
