Foodie Round Up: Times on Thai, Bacon Chocolate, $10 Wines
- Cheap wine doesn't have to mean a case of Charles Shaw: NY Times readers are discussing their favorite bottles under $10 over at their Food section message boards -- what are yours?
- The LAist staff thanks you for continuing on with us on our Thai Town journey: check out Thai Patio, Yai #1 and #2, Red Corner Asia, Kruang Tedd, Thai Original BBQ, and (phew!) Hollywood Thai. If we never see another plate of Pad Thai in our entire lives, however, we'll be perfectly happy.
- And now for something completely different: the LA Times reviews...Thai restaurants in the Los Angeles area!!! No way!
- Jonathan Gold gets down and very dirty with a cajun-flavored seafood boil at The Boiling Crab, a "Cajun seafood restaurant opened by a Vietnamese family from southeast Texas and serving a young Chinese clientele." That's LA for you.
- EaterLA inaugurates their "Sign of the Times" feature with this peculiar advertisement for a new izakaya chain, compliments of the folks who also brought you 750ml and Cobras & Matadors.
- It's National Eat Dinner Together Week: studies show that children of families who make it a priority to sit down for dinner are healthier and make better food choices throughout life.
- Bacon + chocolate = a very exotic candy bar. While salty and sweet are a great flavor combination, and we can even get on board with spicy chocolate, can our well-documented love of bacon withstand even this test???
- Is raising your own chickens a viable alternative to purchasing factory farmed birds? The NYT talks to some folks who are keeping (and butchering) flocks in their city backyards. It's not just a New York phenomenon, either: a producer in Hollywood is selling how-to videos that teach you how to farm your own fowl.
