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.

Best Israeli-American-Turkish breakfast ever: bacon and egg boreka from Moishe’s. #food #turkey #israel (at The Original Farmers Market)
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.
Fried Chicken with kale and grits tater tots. #food #nyc #brooklyn #southern #friedchicken (at Peaches Hothouse)
Hello Sheepshead Bay. #food #brooklyn (at Roll N Roaster)
They have fried chicken with tikka masala gravy on top. I haven’t been to Chicago in a while - this may call for a Journal of a Journalist roadtrip.
They may have upgraded the plateware recently, but the menu is still pure diner—fluffy silver-dollar pancakes from a box, Western-style omelettes, French Toast, and BLTs—except there are burritos, sopes, and flautas slipped in, and everything tastes vaguely Mexican. The kitchen also serves a griddled cheeseburger ($3.25) that, some evenings, is exactly what you need, even if your friends try to dissuade you from ordering it. This is Americana filtered through a Nueva Yorkita lens with sides of beans alongside the sides of toast, strips of jalapeño in the home-fries, and an outstanding avocado salsa that improves ninety percent of the menu’s offerings.
The fiery chicken tinga stew is elevated from just a sweet tomatoe-y sauce by a kiss of chipotle chile. Piled onto a tostada loaded with iceberg and sour cream, it tastes like what Taco Bell aspires to—not a bad thing. The chilaquiles are mild, enriched with the broken yolks of two fried eggs. And that avocado salsa, as verdant as a pulverized wheatgrass shot and just as arresting, contains jalapeños, cilantro, avocado, and onion, and it gives a bare, clipped heat to anything you add it to. Spoon it onto the house breakfast plate ($3.95) of two eggs, toast, and homefries and note that everyone around you is probably doing the same.

So… I just visited the real life Krusty Burger and Moe’s Tavern at Universal Studios for @fastcompany. Krusty Burger with cheese and kurly fries, anyone?
