It's very typical and should appear on any Vietnamese menu in the "Rice Vermicelli" section as "Vermicelli w/grilled pork". It comes with a small bowl of fish sauce which sounds gross but it is not -- I don't find it fishy really, more a slight sweet taste -- and you pour it over the whole dish and mix everything up with your chop sticks.

the tp... come in handy after eating that dish?

I don't get diarrhea from Vietnamese food. It never has that heavy sauce like most Chinese dishes. It's always very light and tropical.

OK, I just took a few days to read through this entire thread, and I have to say I found it very amusing, especially the food sparing between the OP (Ms. P) and the subject (Will). I also found Theyer amusing when asking questions like "U jellz - is that a type of pudding?" and something else he questioned about y'alls lingo, but it slips my mind.

Some of your pictures looked very appetizing, well others failed miserably, but it was really neat to go from 2011 to present in one thread, and indeed it was Ms. P who first mentioned Siggi's Yogurt being the absolute best toward the beginning of the thread.

Anyway just wanted to be a part of this impressive thread and add my two cents...and San Antonio is an awesome place to live!!!

I made a vietnamese dinner yesterday - homemade nuoc cham dipping sauce, fried spring rolls (bought frozen at the asian shop) and a beef lemongrasss noodle salad type thing.

I had such a craving for the sauce!!!!  Now Im going to go get some chinese frozen dumplings to steam and eat it with the nuoc cham. I wonder if that is culinary sacrilege?

I crave the sauces!!!!

I'm always craving mexican green sauce and will make haphazard burritos just to eat it.

Some indians have a similar green sauce - I crave with punjabi bhatura type bread and this chopped salad bhel puri.

The other day I was at a couscous party and everything was succulent and i couldn't get enough of the harissa.....

El Monterrey!  Mitch - how worldly!   ;D

Out in this neck of the woods we have these 'food carts'.  This is something new to me!  Back in the barrio of Milwaukee we had the Taco Trucks and that was about the extent of the portable international cuisine. 

Here, though, they're everywhere and each one seems to have a niche. Burgers - check. Russian delicacies - check.  Some dubious wrap of unknown origin - check.  The last night driving past a group of them, one of these modified Airstream campers advertised "Lithuanian". For the European sect on here, you may know what Lithuanian 'treats' are there may be some fabulous signature Lithuanian dish that I would salivate over - but for the most part I have no clue.  The purveyor looked suspiciously Latin in descent and for all I know he could have put Haggis on a plate and told me Bon Appetit! 

Mitch - I'm with you.  Give me El Monterrey and a yogurt whose expiration date is at least somewhere in 2014 and I'm good to go!

There were a number of polish deli late night coffee shops in NY when I was a young and a scenester.  There were Lithuanian joints here and there in Brooklyn and I don't recall it being very different... dumplings, goulash, crepes, potato pancakes, cabbage.

Its all good when you're drunk/stoned and hungry....  And affordable.

mecch; 


These food trucks are not your father's polish restaurant.....the competition is so fierce that they really have to do something different to stand out.  While DanO is dismissing these carts now, he will be critiquing Miss P's tastes, and espousing the virtues of these epicurean delights on wheels before the year is out.

LOL - I'm not dismissing them, I'm just saying that they could put whip cream on a turnip and tell me it's an authentic Finnish treat traditionally served at a wedding and I wouldn't know the difference.  I've had some very GOOD snackage at some....some very BAD snackage at others.  I'm not certain if it was bad because I am not accustomed to palate-orgies or it was bad because it was just plain BAD.

I've eaten Haggis.  Since then, I my stomach has no fear of anything and that would include the savory whipped-cream turnip roll.  Sometimes, there is not enough hot sauce to sufficiently kill the mere thought of some things in your mouth.

75% plum and 25% apricot... I find they're delightfully sweet but not too sweet like a regular plulm would be.

Lunch yesterday at The Bright Star.

Lots of well dressed after church crowd. Busy place. Waitstaff formally attired.

We arrived all sweaty and in shorts after walking a few hours through a park in 95 degree heat and humidity. More on that later.

I've only had catfish a few times before but this was the best! First time eating turnip greens. Loved them. More flavor than spinach. Cornbread was to die for.

Yum, yum, and yum!

I've been told "Bless your heart" 3 times so far. My, these southerners are so sweet.

I have finally found a Portland Food Cart that has redeemed my opinion. I passed up the one which advertised "Guam Food" and another that had something related to "Bangkok Laotian".....which made no sense...and just kept following the small crowd that looked like a feeding hoard from The Walking Dead. I figured these Rubinesque diners MUST know where the good eats are! Then, I found it:




Heaven. The operator claimed to be vegan. Only in Portland!!

And on the menu they have MAN BAIT LOLLIPOPS. Well, ok, get you some!!!!

I think food trucks are awesome. There is a huge market for them. Lunch, is awesome, money is almost too easy in some locations. I know guys that do a daily run of subdivisions under construction, then go park in an office area in the city.

Where I live in Florida the city had just started cracking down on trucks parking the lots at the beaches. A governmental problem easily solved with a new tax.

My 20 yr old son has worked in food service since his first summer job. Currently he's working for a large theme park, he's the manager for their food carts. He's got a fleet of nearly 50 of them. Sandwiches, hot dogs, ice cream. His department brings in more revenue than the parks ticket sales.

He manages more people than I ever have. I'm impressed, he was kind of awkward when he was little.

He wrote a business plan for a class in college. Outlined five food trucks. Had it so well planned out that I was trying to hand him the money to do it. I mean of course he made an "A" but I wanted to see him make it happen. Not only did he non't take the money, but says the day he graduates he plans on never working food again. I smiled. The money is put away, waiting on whatever he wants to do with it.

When I was his age I financed several cross country road trips by selling grilled cheese sandwiches and veggie burritos. Best days of my life, hands down. And I bet that Jody is the only one here that gets that. Love you man, glad we saw each other, helped me know I'm not the only one in the lot.

I joked with my son that I should do it, and let him be the boss. You heard it here first folks, remember this day. I'm gonna be rich.

Dan; If bacon is your thing, check out this SE restaurant that started as a food cart, they have a big sign in 60 watt light bulbs that spells PIG OUT:


www.lardosandwiches.com

Zack; the vast majority of the food carts in Portland are stationary -- we now have several pods around town where 5 - 10 carts are co-located in a parking lot.  There is no doubt this is a huge business opportunity. I think the formula is to have a simple menu with fresh ingredients that serves quick.

I did a 30 day challenge after a member here (can't remember who) made a comment about being tethered to your weight scale.  I thought it would be a great test and went from stepping on them a couple of times per day to having them hidden away for the entire 30 days.

Holy crap, kinda panicked for a couple of days after stepping on them for the first day.  I had gained about 10 lbs and considered reverting back to extreme diet mode.  After about the 3rd of 4th day, I noticed that the scale was already off.  In the move, the little adjustment wheel had turned enough to add 10 lbs.  Thank goodness!!!

I know this isn't "Nutrition, Wolfie Style", but anyways.  :)  Since I lost a couple of lbs during my frightful week, I decided to have a loaded baked potato.  Smothered in sour cream and all.

Also, has anyone switched to coconut milk?  I recently did and really like the taste and it's a lot healthier than regular milk.

And now I have a new place to check out!  Thanks!  I'm not certain if 'bacon' is my thing but it's certainly a different diet out here compared to the Midwest.  Vegan-this, Vegan-that, Soy milk, Organic eggs to name a few. It seems every place I go things are slathered in sprouts and carrots!  I grew up on a farm with real carnivores. We left eggs hanging in a basket beside the stove, didn't have a microwave, cooked *gasp* game meat and we didn't die from it! While I don't dismiss the occasional sprout or vegetable as a main dish and I am not what would be considered a huge carnivore..........there are times that you JUST WANT MEAT.

Do you like my cinder blocks MissP? They were holding up a Chevy but the city made me haul it off so they are getting a second life in the garden.

cinderblocks? Do you have a car jacked up on them with no wheels in your front yard?

Ohh Looky! My Beans have sprouted (I planted them late). My squash is about played out thank god, I've had squash every way possible I think. The Okry is going good, and thats more Okry sprouting up. YOU CANNOT HAVE TOO MUCH OKRY amirite?

Do you like my cinder blocks MissP? They were holding up a Chevy but the city made me haul it off so they are getting a second life in the garden.



Impressive Wumpellina!

ps- I've never once seen fresh Okry offered here in the major grocery stores.

I sent Mitch home with a can of creamed possum and a can of turnip greens . The greens are real but the possum is a fake food label to freak people out with .

You know, there are a few seafood restaurants that have fresh fish, and fried okra.  I love fried okra.  I can't remember the first time I had it, maybe when I was in Alabama?  But I order it every time I eat at one of those places.

While okra is something slimy, I like it fried with ranch dipping sauce.  Not any other way.  Just wanted to make that clear lol.

NOTE: I regret to inform you fine clients of the Nutrition Thread that our esteemed food critic, MissP, will be unable to join us today due to an illness. (She is down with Bronchitis). I expect her return with a couple days. As such, now is the time to post those Mcdonalds pics!!! When the cats away the mice shall play.

I always thought it was in the same class as 'greens' and was a weed.  Huh - go figure.  Learn something new everyday. As for pickling, isn't that what you do to things that are normally inedible to begin with?

* Pickled Turkey Gizzards
* Pickled (raw) fish

Pickling is a good way to cut the slime of zucchini and okra.

I'm finally somewhat rested and getting caught up with everything so I thought I would post some pics.

Breakfast with Jeff

Day 1: He tried the first day with the egg and bacon frozen burritos. He knew it really didn't go over too well so it was fresh eggs etc. from that point forward. lol.

Day 2: Never one to leave a guest go hungry, the dear cooked 8 (yes 8) sausage patties and then fried 4 eggs in the sausage drippings. They looked a bit "browned" but actually tasted very good. We didn't eat all of the sausage but our cholesterol took a hit anyway. Hey, it's vacation so it doesn't count.

Day 3: Jeff tackled poached eggs, 2 apiece in a non-stick egg poaching pan along with melted cheese on an english muffin. It was a success.

Day 4: Thought it was time I cooked him breakfast. It was a repeat of the morning before but I poached the eggs in a saucepan instead. The leftover sausages came to mind but alas there was only one left.  ??? When I sliced the cheese the knife handle snapped off. This boy needs some decent equipment!

Anyway here's pics from Day 2 and Day 4.
