I LOVE food and I'm sure most of you guys do as well, so why not have a thread about it?

Post recipes, what you ate today, pics, what you're craving for, restaurants you've been to, etc. Overall, just a discussion about food.

Nice. I love this thread idea!

Just to get this rolling, this is a recent pic of a deep dish pizza (pepperoni & sausage) from a local place (Stuc's) that is amazing!

Love me some crabs!

Anything braised is right up my alley but nothing beats a nice, braised short rib.

I went to Baltimore last year and got this steak Oscar Benedict with crab thing for breakfast, it was incredible. Ms Shirley's I think the place was called?

I was in Atlanta this past weekend and went to this place in Little Five Points called "The Vortex." It's a pretty rowdy bar, and they serve the best goddamn burgers in Atlanta (it even says so on the menu :lol:). If you ever get the chance, check it out (need to be 18 to get in).

They have a bunch of different burgers (I probably wouldn't get too adventurous with bar food beyond that) and a great selection of brews. Definitely a place worth checking out.

I can't find the burger I had (Hell's Fury), but you can expect over-the-top concoctions like this one:

I had a side of fried plantains for the first time... awesome.

Oh, and if you're looking for a solid place to waste away the night, I highly recommend the Whiskey Blue. It's a rooftop bar in Buckhead, Atlanta—phenomenal view.

Crowds are in their early 20s and over. There is a dress code (nothing crazy... shirt/slacks/shoes at minimum on weekends), so keep that in mind. Food is decent, but the place has a really chill vibe; everyone's real friendly and it's never dead. The bartenders are pretty liberal with free shots, too.

... Liquor is a sort of food, right? :D

The one at the Inner Harbor? I've never eaten there before, but I've seen it. I usually go to a local place called Skipjacks for crabs, but anything with crab on it is good. Whenever I go to Ocean City, I usually will get something like a crabcake or chicken chesapeake, which is grilled chicken topped with either crab dip or crab meat. There's a place called Harborside in OC that has delicious chicken chesapeake.

Phillipes is good in LA. Known for their french dipped sandwiches at a reasonable price around 5.50 i think. Place has been around since the 60s.

Pho is probably my favorite thing to eat. Love going to this place in Long Beach, Ca called Pho Hong Phat.

Just came back from San Diego and at at this place called WhisknLadle. It had the best steak i have ever had. Super succulent. Very romantic setting if you want to go with a loved one.

When im in San Francisco my all time favorite place to eat is called. Gateway kitchen. If you went into this place you wouldnt believe they served food, but the Hong Kong Fried Pork Chops are amazing and the plate is only around 4 bucks. Delicious.

Right off the L train on Montrose, for those of you that live in NYC.

You can get a monster gyro for $6.50 that could take you as long as an hour to finish...its awesome. Highly recommend.

Double steak fajita with white rice, cheese, sour cream and hot salsa is the shizz-nit. It's the only way to do it at Chipotle.

Any Korean BBQ fans? You basically cook what you order. I went for the first time a few days ago and was instantly converted.

Here are the complementary sides:

We went with chicken and beef briskets:

Awesome portions, awesome food!

Korean BBQ is the stuff! Its huge in LA thats for sure. In SF its all about Shabu Shabu instead. Both are very delicious. The spots here are usually AYCE (All You Can Eat), Bulgogi and Brisket for sure along with short rib. Mmm...
