The Purple Pig

It’s been a long time since I last met up with Ho Bag for some grubbin’.  After all these years, she’s still one of the funnest people to hang out with.  Now that she’s become quite the foodie, we can really bond.  As sad as it is to say, you simply cannot be my friend…

The Publican

So after our disappointing dinner at Blackbird, we tried to scale it down a notch and take on some more casual fare at Publican.  I only just found out now that they are restaurants from the same chef, Paul Kahan.  I was surprised to find this out since the food could not have been more…

Seongbukdong

The Pouter knows whats up when it comes to food.  She was the one who recommended Seoul Garden to me and I have loved that place ever since.  So when she raved about Seongbukdong, I knew it had to be good.  What is this strange sounding place, you may ask?  Well Seongbukdong specializes in galbijim…

Carnevino

I’ve become a BIG fan of Mario Batali since trying Osteria Mozza.  So after hearing we would be going to Carnevino during Triple F’s bachelorette party in Vegas, I was pretty excited.  Eating out in Las Vegas always brings much anticipation and excitement.  I can’t think of any other city, besides NYC, that has such…

Animal

You know how they post those warming signs on big rollercoasters, “If you have a heart condition or a seizure disorder, do not get on this ride.”   They should post a sign like that outside of Animal.  “Those with known coronary artery disease or coronary artery disease risk equivalents should not dine at this establishment.”   This…
