    One of the best cheeses I have ever tasted.


    I started buying this at the Farmer's Market in the loop about 10 years ago (when it was harder to find locally). Still one of my favorites along with Jasper/Cabot's much pricier clothbound cheddar (textural similarities although the cheddar is closer to parmesan in texture and flavor - I have a cheese snob friend in France who tried it once on a visit here and could not believe it was an American cheddar).

    I definitely need to check that out. I've had corn ice cream in a restaurant, but a sweet corn ice cream sandwich sounds like something I can't miss.

    Hi,

    At the Corn symposium, we served corn ice cream from Village Creamery near H-Mart.

    That's right. I'd forgotten that we had it there -- and it was excellent.

    Okay -- first off, this is NOT a discovery I have tried and not one I intend to try. Nor do I recommend anyone else try it. But I still thought it was worth passing along, as I can imagine few other places it will be fully appreciated.

    In China, they now make vegan/vegetarian pigs' intestines!!

    Made from a base of konjac (which is stinky enough to imaging being appropriate), the ad uses such descriptors as "vivid" and "secret recipe" (I bet).
    http://www.21food.com/products/vegetari ... 15218.html

    If you scan to the bottom of the ad, you'll find there are also vegetarian pig ears and tripe. Yow. (Probably because they're struggling to raise enough pigs for increased demand.)

    Long ago, when I was roughly college age, as was true of many broke kids, I ate a lot of instant ramen. Back then, the choices were beef, chicken, vegetable, though the main flavoring ingredient was salt. Now, with all the great ethnic places popping up all over the area, I have discovered that pretty much everyone likes instant ramen noodles, and I've had a vast array of new flavors, from green curry to kimchi and beyond.

    But the one I tried this week both amused me and pleased me. Lucky Me! Brand Bulalo -- Beef and Bone Marrow Flavor, from the Philippines. Somehow, bone marrow seems so unlikely a flavor for a cheap package of ramen noodles. It admits right up front that it's artificially flavored, but maybe it's a tribute to all those companies trying to make fake meat for vegetarians -- because this was remarkably beefy with pretty convincing hints of bone marrow flavor. I'll probably buy this again. Because I still need cheap meals in my life. :)

    Sounds good Cynthia! Unfortunately, I just looked and Amazon says they're currently unavailable online--which is the only way I could ever hope to buy any. Sigh. : (

    That's different packaging than I found (mine was the small rectangle of noodles), and while I enjoyed it, I don't think I'd say I'd want $129 worth of it.

    My first search online turned up pages of recipes for bulalo.

    Then this ad -- apparently it's a local favorite:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWdQQBuGPGE

    A "ramen rater," who said he loved it.

    And about 30 other brands of instant bulalo -- no idea this was such a popular dish in the Philippines.

    And this place -- which claims to be the world's best place to buy Filipino foods -- and appears to sell single packages. https://www.filstop.com/lucky-me/

    I don't know that ramen rater, but I do know this one, and he seems to think they're pretty good:

    "The noodles were a little on the spongy side at the end of the three minutes, but I found after a minute or two they became a little better. The broth has a nice beefy flavor. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars."

    My most recent discovery is not a food but a YouTube food show. Did a search, and it didn't appear anywhere on LTH, so I thought I'd share it -- but I want the job these guys have. They eat food at three different price points and decide which is the most "Worth It" -- which is the name of the show. It's a lot of fun. Some of the high-end food is crazy expensive, but it's fun to see it all.

    It's been on for four seasons now, but here are some samples to get you started:
    Ramen in Japan https://youtu.be/QtVL76gh09U

    Fried chicken in New York https://youtu.be/M6XiFKB7j0w

    Filipino pork in LA https://youtu.be/IxD2NbXzgpQ

    17 million subscribers, so I'm clearly not alone in enjoying this guilty pleasure. :)

    Mom and I watched the fried chicken followed by brunch. All the places selected I would want to visit depending on mood and how much I want to spend. There were no dogs in their selection process at all.

    Good find!

    My kids turned me onto Worth It about a year ago. I really enjoy it too. My son and a couple of friends did the fried chicken/caviar at momofuku, and said it was really good, though not necessarily worth it.

    Yes -- I like fried chicken and I like caviar, but just piling caviar on fried chicken doesn't appeal to me much. I'd pick Red Rooster, of those three -- because I've had Marcus Samuelson's food before and think he'd always be worth it.
