Hot Water Music
In our efforts to further advance the “war on Christmas” DJ Hanabi wanted to find out a little more about the other holiday, in the phrase “happy holidays” aka Hanukkah. So, we went to resident Hanukkah expert, Insane Dane. He gave us the low-down. We came away with the following in mind. Pastrami and potato pancakes. Sold!!!!!!
This week we decided to take full advantage of subscription week here at BTR to discuss our favorite food related subscription models.
Since we had an interview last week and didn’t get to chat with our man on the street Dane. So, in perfect DJ Hanabi fashion, Hanabi talks about himself for three segments before letting Dane get a word in edgewise. But, not without good reason as Hanabi was talking about his visit to an SF favorite Benu. That and a small recap of corndogs at Disneyland, which may be the best anywhere. Dane finally killed it with his latest Dish+Drink entry focusing on his recipe for Shakshuka. Damn!
One of my favorite topics, snickerdoodles, was discussed. Nuff said! Seriously though a show about cookies is just awesome. It’s all down hill from here peeps.
This week we thought we would investigate the best ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day, if that’s your thing. We discuss places to eat if you want to go that route, such as one of my Favorite non San Francisco places, The Pig’s Ear in Dublin Ireland. We share our thoughts on cooking for Valentine’s Day. We also discover that Hanabi just wants to skip the food and get right to the drinking.
So, here we are on the homeward stretch towards ditching the holiday shackles and boy am I hungry….. for something that isn’t turkey or ham (although I did just buy 3 oz of amazing jamon Iberico, but that’s another story.) or stuffing or gravy. DJ Hanabi and I had ourselves a little discussion about what Asian cuisine reigns supreme (that’s a total pun and stolen in jest). We battle (never start a land war in Asia!) over whether Thai, Korean, Japanese, or Chinese (Yes, Malaysian, Burmese, Indian, Indonesian and many others exist too, but it’s only an hour long show, jeez!) is best. In the end, because we’re both kind of not feeling 100% we decide on the best meal for our post holiday cravings. Also, we named dropped Mission Chinese Food. Yummm!!
