So when I visited my cousin who graduated from UT earlier today, we all went out to go eat at Bombay Palace. I actually forgot that I’ve not been here in a few years; I do clearly remember visiting here when I graduated from ETSU myself in 2013. I guess it’s a hotspot for graduation families to visit.
Aside from whatever was in the buffet, I had a side of fried chicken pakora. This was real tasty and I think came out better than Sahib’s in Johnson City. I pretty much equate the taste to pholourie batter on fried chicken. On top of that, there’s a tamarind sweet sauce they give you, which is almost like honey mustard in taste; that complemented it real well.
Give it a shot when you get the chance.
When I decided to grab food before heading back home today, Sticky Rice immediately came to mind. So I stopped in for this lovely dish, dry rub wings.
I’ve had this dish a few times before, the first being at the Knox Asia Festival in 2017. The Sticky Rice peeps had set up a booth with a few different types of chicken, and this was rubbed with some spices and some quite hot pepper. It was very oily, perfectly fried and trumped any KFC that may have come my way.
Do stop into them and try this dish, it’s worth the $8. Maybe one day I’ll have a whole-blown meal from them when time allows.
On a whim, my siblings and I decided to try the acclaimed Death Wish Coffee. The box just arrived this evening; so we’ll see how this stuff actually tastes. I wanted to try this in 2016, but there was a shortage and prices were quadrupled almost. So I’m glad it’s actually affordable this time around.
I whipped this up for breakfast this morning. I don’t usually eat garlic bread for breakfast, but this time I make an exception. Went pretty well with the eggs admittedly.
Such interesting breakfasts I have when I’m out of town.
Upon “landing” in Queens once again, I get this quick-on-my-feet breakfast of a banana, and a old-fashioned Dunkin Donuts. I was very happy with this to be honest. Considering how much fast food I had on the road while driving in.
Decided to give this garlic shrimp recipe a shot. Wasn’t too bad, but it came out a tad bit hot because I didn’t have chili powder, and I used a fresh cayenne instead. Oh well; I did use small shrimp instead of normal size due to costs and preference, but that didn’t have an effect on the taste. Otherwise, it was great! I did pretty good for cooking shrimp for the first time, all things considered.
This is the second time I’m grilling this dish, and I think wings are going to be my favorite thing to be grilling this summer. Had to snap this shot to show you how they’re coming along under my care, almost ready to come off.
These are dry rub, and I use this spice rub from Puckett’s, specifically the Chicken/grill rub. Works pretty well, gives some heat but most of all that savory, salty flavor. When that hits the oil, makes you feel like you found a hole in the wall place while on an urban walkabout.
If I grill more stuff, I’ll definitely share them with you as the season goes on.
Decided to snap my breakfast this morning, as I don’t think I’ve shared you guys how my Mom’s blueberry goop syrup looks on pancakes. Something like this.
Not sure of the exact ingredients, but frozen blueberries are used. I think in this case a little bit of blackberries were used as well. Then some sugar was added for the final effect. Definitely better than the sweet butter syrup in my opinion.
Not only is this an Eateries, I actually helped make this! Snazzy, custom flavored Red Baron pizza, the triple cheese brick oven variant. Fresh bell peppers, mushrooms and onions top this delectable dish, along with a tiny bit of shavings of habanero hot peppers for extra spice. Baked this to perfection on a pizza stone.
Why am I baking a pizza in the middle of the night? Family just came off the road from being out all day, and decided that pizza would be the best option instead of going hungry or cooking something complicated.
Too bad I missed the other stuff I cooked July 4th. Oops.
This is another of those “grab a photo to show Dave what I’m eating”, which then works for all of you to see what I’m also eating. Win-win both ways.
On this Friday night I show you what’s for dinner, spicy dal and very well-made roti. It’s a simplistic but very tasty dish. There’s also some chutney in there for added tang; you can’t go wrong with this combination.
Suffice to say Dave was very pleased. He’s now claiming we need to mix bratwurst with roti and have a combination/cross-cultural cook off one of these days. That actually sounds very enticing.
