Patisserie des Reves Review: Not wasting pastries from Patisserie des Reves

Lately I've been busy with some random maintenance on the blog, and now I'm going to finish up the Paris posts since they've gotta be written. I want to talk about this idea of food waste too, and I'll get to it at the end of the post, but keep that in your back pocket for now. Let's talk about Patisserie des Reves. If you want pastries in Paris and you're short on time, you would have no regrets placing this patisserie at the top of your to-eat list. It is simply one of the best pastry places in Paris.

Royal Seafood Review: Dim sum is all good

I've been too Golden Bridge, Golden Unicon, Dim Sum Go-Go, Red Egg, Chinatown Brasserie, Mandarin Court, Oriental Garden, Jing Fong, the closed one by Chatham sq, Chatham sq (which is different), 27 Summer, and two places on Mott St north of Canal that I don't know the name of.

So I will cross the line that many in the food blogosphere would not, and venture to infinity and beyond! Well, actually it was not infinity, it was just Red Lobster....

Taco Bell's Cantina Menu

Taco Bell came out with a new line of burritos and bowls created by Lorena Garcia, and it's called Cantina Bell. For those unfamiliar with Lorena Garcia, she's going to be on the next season of Top Chef Masters. I think if she met Marcus Samuelson, the winner from season 2, the conversation would go like this: Lorena: I feel good about my chances to win. Marcus: Winning feels good. But now people are jealous of my dapper hats and Eddie Huang shits on my restaurant and its cultural implications. Lorena: Americans only know me from Taco Bell's new Cantina menu. I should be safe, right? Marcus:...
