So when I went to the KnoxAsia festival with my cousin’s fiance, we grabbed food; after all, that was one of the best things you could ask for while at a festival. She had some butter chicken with naan, and I had stir-fry fried rice with chicken, and some zucchini strips. We had to wait quite awhile for our food (about an hour), but when we sat down to eat in the lawn, it was an interesting experience for sure.
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.
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.
It’s been awhile since I’ve treated myself to dinner, so I figured with actually getting out of the house this fall, it wouldn’t hurt to stop into Cheddars. Didn’t go too experimental this time around, stuck with the standard fare of onion rings, mac n’ cheese, mashed potatoes, honey dijon chicken, rice and mushrooms.
I do miss ducking into places like these nowadays.
When I stopped by Cheddars for din din tonight, I noticed that they had a special menu item; New Orleans pasta. They had some sort of dijon sauce, and mixed up shrimp and chicken in rigati pasta. It wasn’t quite something I really liked, but it did taste good and I would recommend it to someone who likes that sort of thing!
