In Which I Deviate From My Halal Cart Habits

I broke a 20-year streak with one extra condiment
Jul 11, 2013 11:31 am

I wrote about New York's halal carts a couple of years back as one of the very first lunch suggestions I ever threw out there. That's because I've been eating combo rice since I was a wee thing. I find a container of meat-laden rice covered with tart yogurt sauce and fiery harissa to be a little styrofoam-contained piece of heaven. And then I did something crazy. To be perfectly truthful, I blame society for my actions. But I stand by them.

Play The Thai Street Food Guru Game!

Jun 14, 2013 2:31 pm

The Bangkok Post published a comprehensive crash course in Thai street food. Well, we're treating it as a crash course because we don't know the answers to any of these questions! But thanks to the answer key, you too can be a master of the Thai grilled tubesteak nugget-thing (answer key sez: Isan-style sausage) and possess the knowledge to serve it with lettuce, ginger and chiles. Meat skewers, fried noodles and other delicious bites after the jump.

Kumpir: A Hot Potato From Istanbul

Turkey's crazy street food never ceases to amaze
Dec 10, 2012 12:31 pm

Thanks to our editorial intern Laila, we've been pretty solidly educated on the glories of the various kinds of Middle Eastern street food she grew up with. First she brought Turkey's wet burger to our attention. Then we learned about koshary, the most delicious way to feed the most people with the least effort, via Egypt's Rachael Ray. Now with knowledge of kumpir — a specialty in Ortaköy, Istanbul — I'll attempt to reinvent the baked potato. Or at least use up a lot of leftovers all at once.

NYC-based DJ knows how to eat well
Dec 4, 2012 2:01 pm

A man who puts bitters on his concert rider is most certainly not messing around with food. And while we are meeting a lot of people with very discerning taste during DJ Week, Luca Venezia (known formally as NYC-based DJ and producer Drop The Lime) has some very particular taste as we found out in this interview

Legendary Sandwich: The Mitraillette

Or call it by its formal name: The Submachine Gun
Oct 25, 2012 11:31 am

I read myself to sleep last night with one of my favorite bedtime stories: Jon Chonko's Scanwiches book. It's a real thriller — intimidating Italian characters who may or may not be associated with the mob, a classic meat-meets-bread story, a little fluff, a sexy Cuban and a war (but I won't give away the twist). A war? Yes, Belgium wins. Awh, I gave away the twist. It's all because of the Mitraillette.
