Hog Wild BBQ. With Raisins.

First, a simple statement.  BBQ is an amazing thing.  It’s such a simple concept – heat, wood and meat – but it has different origins in different cultures and has a different process everywhere you go. Changing the smallest details result in different flavors and textures. My preference is keeping it basic – allow the…

IHOP Cheeseburger Omelette

Add this to my brand new WTF category.. I’m a big fan of breakfast but in no way do I find it be the most important meal of the day. I classify breakfast as more of a prep meal for lunch.. Something to get me through the first few hours of the day until I…

Taco Bell Chicken Chips

Just in case you were getting tired of tortilla chips… In yet another effort to serve you chicken in the strangest form possible, Taco Bell will be releasing their Naked Chicken Chips nationwide starting on May 11th.  They’re pretty much just how they sound: chicken nugget triangles seasoned with Mexican spices and served with a…

Grindstone Smokehouse Burned Down

I woke up up this morning to a message from the Filipino Pounder saying that Grindstone Smokehouse caught fire last night an hour after they closed. Either this was the worst pun ever, or we had ourselves a fire in Westland last night. A little background first — Grindstone Smokehouse was opened in late 2015…

Deep Fried Cheesesteak Roll

I visited a joint called Mocha Bistro in Dearborn, MI after seeing their stuff on Instagram for some time. They advertise themselves as Yemeni-American fusion and have a pretty solid social media game. As you go through their shares, they definitely focus on the sweet stuff – cheesesteak rolls, milkshakes, fruit cocktails and smoothies. The…

YouTube Food

Before I start this, I must admit that I have a very small attention span.  YouTube has probably overtaken normal television for me simply because I don’t have to commit to thirty minutes to an hour of viewing the same show.  It’s sad, I know. I can skip around and watch clips of different things and…

Hot Sauce

I love me some hot sauce.  Not that kind that gives you second-degree mouth burns and prevents you from tasting anything else.  I love the kind of hot sauce that acts as more of a buddy to the food you’re pouring it on — An enhancement, if you will.  I belong to a monthly hot…

Mexican Crispy Chicken Pizza

I love Taco Bell.  I’m not afraid to admit it.  Yes, I criticize and judge non-authentic Mexican food all the time.  Here’s the thing, Taco Bell makes no attempt at being classed as anything close to authentic Mexican.  It’s in a class all by itself.  One of my favorite things about Taco Bell is the…

Countdown to Lobster Rolls

For normal people, Summer means warm weather, pools, sunshine, going outside and other activities.  For me, Summer means food.  This shouldn’t be surprising because every season means food for me.  I was having a nostalgic moment that sent me back to Summers in the past and luckily when you search for ‘Food’ in Google Photos…
