Just got back from NYC, went to the famed Momofuku ssam bar for dinner on my last night

Char siew pork belly bao



Soft shell crab


the signature dish, their bo ssam pork lettuce wraps, 6 lb hunk of braised pork shoulder, my phone next to the pork for size reference, meant to serve 6-10 ppl


Served with boston bibb lettuce wraps & oysters





pork literally falls apart at the touch of the tongs

Wow... things I could never eat and they look so great. How exactly do the Oysters and Pork come together on that? Sounds questionable.

You keep kosher right? So you have no idea what pork and shellfish/mollusks taste like. Let me tell you, its like a unicorn farted in your mouth. A mix of strawberries and sunshine and deep meaty flavor.

Spiced Mocha Biscuits, freshly made for morning tea tomorrow! First time I tried them (indeed anything like this before) and they seem to have turned out ok :)

Today I made Lahmacun for dinner.












They turned out great and were really delicious. I didn't have the chili pepper the recipe called for the mince, so I used 2/3 of a fresh red chili instead. If I was gonna make it again I'd use a whole one.

I served them with a little bit of spinach (not in the recipe or traditional but more veg is good), parsley and lemon juice. Oh, and you have to fold it the long way when you eat it.

The biggest b*tch about making it for me today was that I couldn't find minced lamb in the shops, so I had to mince/chop/butcher the lamb by hand.

Nothing on No Reservations has made my mouth water as bad as the lahmajoun he had in Istanbul. That whole episode was torture to me. probably because I'm Iranian.

I don't drive, I fly.
That looks really good!
People talking about pulled pork sandwiches in #gear made me curious to try it. So I made it myself.

Picked blueberries last weekend...made pie yesterday. It is delicious.

*blueberry awesomeness*
Absolute food torture. *sighs wistfully*

In other news...apparently snails, if not prepared properly, can infect your brain with dangerous parasites...o_O
