There’s Something Big Stirring at UMass…

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

Once upon a time, college kids did crazy things. Like stuffing phone booths. Or seeing how many frat rats could fit in a Volkswagen Beetle. (Or moving said Beetle into odd places, if it happened to belong to the new assistant prof of English; but […]

The Quest Begins Anew (Just Pho Me): Mai Lien Bistro

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

Sadly, this family-friendly eatery is now closed.

This story begins the way all good tales have, since the beginning of storytelling: “Once Upon a Time…”

Well, once upon a time I discovered pho. Okay, I didn’t actually discover it outright (I’m not THAT famous), but I got talked […]

The Devil's Own Chicken, as Hot as Your Conscience Can Stand

This entry is part of a series, RdJ Marathon»

All I can say about this recipe is, the devil made me do it. And eat it too!

There are many versions of this dish, with names from Chicken Diablo to Pollo del Diavolo and more. Each one lays claim to the “original” title, of course, […]

Fish 4 Friday: Thai Monkfish Soup

This entry is part of a series, F4F 2011»

Ugly. That’s all you can call it. Ugly, UGly, UGLY! (And no, I never dated somebody who looked like that; it’s a rude and vicious slander. She could take her dentures out to soak.)

It’s also called a monkfish. Or an angler fish. If you look […]

How Grand is the Grand Buffet in Seguin? Let Me Tell You...

(Note: Before the flamers get a chance at this note, I want to remind everybody that this review is about a buffet place. It’s not fine dining, and even the owners don’t claim it as such. So temper your expectations, and try to read this review as a comparison to other buffet restaurants. Trust […]

Fish 4 Friday: Zesty Grilled Trout, Anyone? How About With Tamarind?

It may be GYCOM, but that doesn’t mean everything’s gotta be chili or soup. We’ll take a small detour today, into the realm of grilled fish. It’s still grilling weather down here, and I know that trout season is still rolling along in other locales. Here’s a way to avoid the dreaded, boring “Same […]
