Salivating [Oct. 1st, 2009|02:30 am]

A dozen things I LOVE to eat:
    1. Salmon & avocado maki (that's a roll of sushi)
    2. Pizza "NY Style" which has a thin but chewy crust, slightly sour & salty mozzarella cheese, not much sauce, lots of oregano
    3. Really rich dark chocolate cake with rich dark chocolate icing
    4. Steamed BBQ pork buns (Chinese dim sum style)
    5. Seeded ficelle (a short baguette-style loaf of bread covered with seeds - usually sesame, poppy, sunflower, and fennel)
    6. Salt & Pepper potato chips (preferably Terra Yukon Gold™ Salt & Pepper Potato Chips) and goat cheese
    7. Dark chocolate fondue with strawberries, blueberries, and pound cake
    8. Sticky coconut rice with fresh mango slices
    9. Hot chocolate as prepared by my SO (he starts with Burdick's dark chocolate in warm 2% milk, sometimes with cream, and adds a couple of heaping spoonfuls of Ghirardelli's mix, little marshmallows, and boyfriend magic)
    10. Mary Chung's potstickers, fried and served with her dipping sauce
    11. Lobster bisque but ESPECIALLY when served in a sourdough bread bowl
    12. Bi bim bap from Seoul Food (in particular, the bacon, the chicken, and the tofu versions)

These are favorites that have endured. Other dishes have come and gone with me, sometimes temporarily, sometimes permanently. I loved, loved, loved corn fritters when I was a kid, then I ate too many one time & I couldn't eat them for years after that. Sometimes I love maple sugar candy so much I wanna marry it; other times it's 'eh.' On occasion I want eggs benedict so bad my mouth waters and I can think of nothing else; other times, it's too much.

I may have to add Irish sausage to this list because I love mixing meat and bread, but especially mixing roast pork with bread. It's difficult to get in the States though, so it's too soon to tell if it's an enduring preference.

Your list is awesome, even the things I think I probably do not like on it. :)

One of my most desired foods is Scotch Eggs. The US is woefully inadequate in providing that for me. :(

Does http://www.yelp.com/biz/faneuil-street-market-brighton carry your sausage? They have lots of yummy stuff there, and it's right by my house.

Ooh, it sounds like they might have my sausage! I should make a trip & see! Maybe we could grab lunch there some Saturday?

Or, I could take you to my favorite sushi place in Boston (really!), which is also right near there. (Who knew Brighton was such a mecca?)

That would be delightful!

I knew Allston was a mecca after I got addicted to the food court at the Super88, so I'm open to the idea of adding Brighton to the mecca list.

So, yeah, since we can't do a hot tub thing (which I had totally forgotten - whoa), we should do a This instead.
