Where We Eat: Caribbean Crown and Pujol

My wife’s boss has been harping on me, through her, for years about eating Jamaican food. He insisted that I give it a try. I have largely ignored his suggestions, namely because the one time I had Jamaican food was at this “fast food” type shack that played loud reggae music. I found the food to be too sweet and boring. I changed my tune a bit […]


Cook: Tangy Chickpeas Sandwich with Kale Slaw

We went to Kaleisia Tea Lounge this weekend and I branched out and tried something new. I wasn’t making a statement about how unpredictable I can be or anything, I was just being a cheap ass and selected a tea from the tea of the month list (which comes with a slight discount). Most of the time my tea of choice is fruit based. This […]

Cook: Oyster Po’ Boy with Radish Remoulade

Hey Philly…what’s up? We used to be bros. I mean I read your daily (via the internet of course), root for your sports teams (except the Sixers, I don’t stoop that low) and cook your food. I always stand up for you when people mention Santa Claus or Michael Irvin. But then Philly, you go and pull something like this. You take a package full […]

Cook: Colorado Denver Sandwich (50 for 50 #6)

About 1,600 miles east of Denver is the small Pennsylvania town of Carlisle. It is here that J-Fur and I spent most of our early dating days. It is also here where our families still reside. That means each Christmas we return to see what has changed. One thing that hasn’t changed much since oh about 1930 is the Hamilton Restaurant and Lounge which is […]


Where We Eat: Consciousness-Blossoms

Consciousness-Blossoms is the kind of restaurant that isn’t satisfied with just capturing your stomach. That stuff is child’s play. Their intention, according to their website, is to nourish your heart and soul as well. That’s called Chinmoy’s play. How do they do it? It all starts with healthy vegetarian meals. Everything in the place is made without meat. There are a large number of completely vegan […]


Cook: Eggplant Crunch Burgers

My mother-in-law has a weird relationship with veggie burgers. She insists that she is not a fan but, even when we go to an all vegetarian restaurant, she will order them anyways. In some ways I’m similar. One of those mainly meat restaurants will describe their veggie burger, make it sound really awesome and convince me to order it. Then, when they bring it out, […]


Cook: The Taiwo Sandwich

Each day almost 152,000 people die. The majority of these people never get the chance to feel what it is like to have a sandwich named after them. Poor, poor them. Most sandwich naming rights are reserved for famous people. Elvis has one. So do Justin Timberlake, Scott Baio and Hugh Hefner. Keep digging and I might find a few hundred more people lucky enough […]
