Matt & Teri/Venice Beach, Los Angeles

Started our summer road trip by flying into L.A. I was on a mission to eat lots of Mexican food (not that hard on the West Coast). So why not Korean-Mexican food? Loved the spicy red chili pepper sauce on my shrimp taco.

Red Bull NY fans/Newark, NJ

Amazing pre-game Portuguese food at Coimbra restaurant/bar in Newark's Ironbound neighborhood. Washed down with Sagres beer on draught. This place is the real deal, filled with old guys watching football and buying cigarettes from the vending machine. Unfortunately, the Red Bulls were defeated 0-1 by the Seattle Sounders later on.

I made hummus the other day for the first time in my life. I really like hummus. It's incredibly easy to make.

The NY Times Biting My Style asks, "What are you eating right now?" and strangely doesn't cite this blog as inspiration.

This is the seafood blince at Gambrinus, a Russian pectopah in Brighton Beach. Thanks to raburabunakamachi for the pictures of her recent visit. I've walked past many times but now I'll be sure to try it. Gambrinus, by the way, is the patron saint of beer.

Flying While Eating

Menu Nomad's latest post gives us a look at the meal options on Air France. It got me thinking about some of my most memorable airplane food experiences. And the most memorable has to be the one I don't remember. It was 1998 and I was being flown first class from Chicago to Tokyo on JAL where my first job out of college awaited me. The champagne flowed before takeoff. Then it was gin. The guy sitting next to me was a connoisseur of airplane liquor, and he was advising me on every round. We smoked cigarettes in our leather seats. "Wasn't that frowned upon in 1998?" you ask. Take it from L.P. Hartley, folks: "The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there."

And I have no idea what the hell we ate.

I do like pictures of airplane food, though, and that's something that hasn't been featured much, if at all, on What Are We Eating? So thanks to Luxemburgerlis on flickr here are some amazing shots of first-class meal service on Thai Airways.

Matt/Brooklyn, NY

We had a block of tofu, some bok choy, a zucchini, and mushrooms. Some of it went toward a healthy dish and the rest was sacrificed in a mad urge to fry stuff.

Also, on a recent cold January night I decided to bust out a bottle of Stone Vertical Epic (a Belgian strong dark ale by way of San Diego) from '06 that had been sitting in my refrigerator. I'm happy to report it aged magnificently.
