Money quote: “People like to be alone together,” Robson says. “Communal tables can build a community, but not through verbal interaction.”
Any time a cultural snob tells you American cuisine has produced nothing of value, just point to these ribs and say the four magic words: “Get in my tummy.” (via Archibald’s Bar-B-Q - Northport, AL)
In a paper with the awesome title “Tacos al Pastor y Flautas de Cochinita Pibil ¿Sabes qué es lo que comes?” (“Do You Know What You’re Eating?”) in the latest issue of Saberes Compartidos del Consejo de Ciencia y Tecnología del Estado de Puebla (Shared Findings of the State of Puebla’s Council of Science and Technology), researchers put tacos and flautas through a rigorous chemical analysis to determine what exactly constitutes their nutritional makeup, picking the regional favorites tacos al pastor and flautas de cochinita pibil as case studies.

There’s a restaurant in Los Angeles called the House of Pies. Guess what I ordered?
Swung by the Los Angeles Farmer’s Market yesterday. Simply amazing. $15 got me the following:
1. 3 slices of Picanha steak, black bean stew w/ Kielbasa and roast pork, and pao de queijo from the Brazilian stand.
2. A cheburek (fried turnover w/ spicy beef) pastry from the Russian bakery
3. A lemongrass and coconut milk ice cream bar from the fancy French boutique.

Just learned about this amazing Texan history art-and-food project about the Crypto-Jews. Sounds delicious and (crap) educational.
Kosher taco truck highlights crypto-Jewish history
An El Paso artist hopes to highlight the history of crypto-Jews in the Southwest through a kosher taco truck.
About six years ago, artist Peter Svarzbein started photographing crypto-Jews, Hispanic or Latinos of Jewish descent who had to keep their faith a secret after the Spanish inquisition, and their descendents.
Svarzbein wants to show the stories of those families through his taco truck, which was serving the fusion food at Congregation B’nai Zion and Hope and Anchor over the weekend.
On Monday, the truck was at the Foodville food truck spot in Downtown El Paso, on the corner of Mills and Mesa. Along with serving up tacos, the stories of crypto-Jews are projected on walls….
New York is a great food city where you can find anything your heart desires EXCEPT Chicago-style pizza. Someone find me this deep dish food of the gods in the 212 or 718, please.
