One very tasty, savory namesake at Cochon: Louisiana cochon with cracklins plus cabbage and pickled turnips. This is a delicious homage to suckling pig. When you add ChicharrÃ³n to any dish, I fall in love with it. According to New York Times critic Frank Bruni, this is a â€œgolden, crisp-edged, fatty puck: a gargantuan pig latke.â€
Grand Central Market
I had a blast doing brunch at the Grand Central Market in Downtown LA. It was pleasure to see all the yummy eating spots under one roof.
I introduced my mom and auntie to a food spot whose name makes them blush.
However, everyone enjoyed the Fairfax at Egg Slut.
I adored the flavor combo of soft-scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and sriracha mayo.
Down with PDC
MONTREAL – Yeah. You know me. Waking up to a garbage truck smackdown outside our hotel in the Latin Quarter.
On our first night in Montreal, I checked off a tasty item on my international bucket list. It’s all about food. Our server said we went big at Au Pied de Cochon. According to my Lonely Planet guidebook, residents’ nickname for this epic food place: PDC.
We waddled home after a decadent meal of foie gras and meat fat.
