Favorite foods and when(14 posts)

Favorite foods and whenLeisure
Jun 30, 2002 12:44 AM
Reading about fat people made me hungry.

I love:

-King crab legs, especially in the summer.
-Thai food, in particular Satay, Ya Muan Sehn, Nam Sodt, and most of all those spicey fish patties for which I can't remember the name. Whenever my mom's cooking.
-Fajitas and quesadillas, especially with shrimp and guacemole. Eaten outside with a nice big smoothie.
-Spicy chicken sandwiches from Wendy's, lettuce and onions only, with their Hot Chile sauce smeared all over the bun. Easy to get on the way to work.
-Lasagna with lots of mushrooms.
-Mongolian Beef or Mu Shu Pork when I feel like Chinese.
-When done right, a big bowl of Wonton soup with egg noodles and hot peppers soaked in the broth.
I love lots of different kinds of foods, but...OutWest

...my absolute favourite ever since I was a little guy is a grilled cheese sandwich on a rainy Saturday when I have a good book or an old movie to watch. My Mom used to always make them for me, sure wish she was still here :-( Everything else is second place.
I also like good Calamari, Kotoskaras, Dolmades and other Greek food, Japanese food, Chezuan Chinese, etc.
Any kind of Pacific Salmon at a window-side table with my wife at the Salmon House On The Hill in North Vancouver is another favourite.

Mexican food any time, but especially for lunch with a Bohemia: carnitas, carne asada, pollo con mole, fish tacos, abondigas (sp), etc.

A big filet mignon or porterhouse, with a bake potato, asparagus, and a bottle of red wine on a cold winter night.

I get a serious craving for seafood linguine, linguine pescatore, or whatever you want to call it. As long as it's got shrimp, clams, fish, calimari, and the other ocean-dwellers with a spicy red sauce and lots of garlic, I'm happy.

Chicken fried rice always hits the spot after a long ride.

Since I was a kid, I've gotten cravings for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on white bread every time I've gone in a swimming pool.

Bratwurst cooked in beer with sauerkraut on a roll out in the sun at almost any kind of outdoor festival (with a beer of course).

Sushi almost all the time: toro, salmon skin handrolls, seared albacore, and even monkfish liver on occasion.

In my younger days when I was hung over on a regular basis, I always loved a big three or four egg omelette with turkey, spinach, and jack cheese topped with lots of spicy sauce.

Bleu cheese. A few times a year, I get crazy cravings for bleu cheese and some red wine or a Belgian strong ale to go along with it.

Chili from October through late April. I like making chili and love eating it.

I like Indian food on a hot summer night. Lamb or chicken saag with garlic naan is hard to beat.

BBQ. Who doesn't love good barbecue?

I love food. About the only thing I won't eat is fast food.

any kind of sushi is good

I came to realize that there are two things I really love doing: sleeping and eating.

I also like dogfood

I really like tempura and sushi. and unagi, which is grilled eel.
calamari is great.
pizza with pepperoni, italian sausage, or anchovies.
spaghetti carbonara. I like pasta a lot, and I suppose carbonara's the best. yes, I know it'll get me eventually.
fried rice. no offense, but I don't think the fried rice in the US compares to the fried rice in most Asian countries.
burgers.
ribs.
there, now I'm hungry.

I hate most curries, so Indian food makes me sick.

I could eat Paella seven days a week.
I could probably eat 1/2 ton of sushi in one sitting.
Oh, Man am I ever hungry now, I'm making french toast...OutWest

...for the family and me then I'm off for a ride. We have a big Canada Day BBQ to go to this afternoon and I'd better get some exercise in before. Hey, what are/is paella?
What is paella????mr_spin

Oh man, you have not lived until you have had paella.

Paella is the Spanish national dish. I think. It should be. It's practically all I ate whenever I was in Spain.

Here's a recent article on paella:

Guess what we are probably going to have for dinner tonight! nmOutWest

Things I like

- Mexican, most all of it except mole sauce. I really like Chipolte and fish tacos.

- Steaks, my favorites are from a local steak house called Erte'. Lots of red wine to go along with it doesn't hurt.

Simple tastes but it's what I like :-)
Calamari and a good gravy - forget about it...jose_Tex_mex

Besides that, Thai, Cambodian, and Vietnamese food. Thai; the hotter, the better! Wash it down with a nice cold one. Mexican too.
BEER, now. nmJS Haiku Shop
