Meyhem Lauren Eating His Way Through The New City Night (Video)

Haha! Something about the narration and presentation of this. Livin that foodie life smooth like it’s a movie!

We’re eating like a local in New York City with Meyhem Lauren. The first stop is Africa Kine in Harlem for lamb chops with Meyhem’s godbrother, Chrome. Then we’re off to El Tina in Washington Heights for fried shrimp, mashed potatoes, and a breathtaking seafood stew. To end the night, Meyhem heads to The Chipper Truck in the Bronx for curry fries and the elusive “Chip Buddy,” a french fry sandwich. This is a typical evening in the life of Meyhem Lauren, and he’s here to indulge.
– Munchies

Hmm… not really feeling the ‘Chip Buddy.’ Reminds me of potato salad sandwiches… I have known folks to eat them, but a starch on bread… why?

Sean Paul and Chi Ching Ching Tasting And Teaching Jamaican Food & Culture To Horsepowar (Video)

‘First We Feast’ keeps coming up with good content. Of course, it is food-centered, so you know that will interest most humans. However, they really put work into the ‘human interest’ side of their series. This one on Jamaican Food, too.

Sean Paul is a dancehall icon and certified hit maker. But he’s also a ride-or-die obsessive when it comes to the food of his native Jamaica. Anxious to learn more about Jamaican curry goat, Horsepowar follows Sean and his latest Dutty Rock signee, Chi Ching Ching, to Glady’s Jerk Center in Brooklyn—a new-school home for Caribbean cuisine on Rogers Avenue. From a crash-course in patois, to a heated beef-patty taste test, Sean and Chi Ching school Horsepowar on all things Jamaican before diving into a couple heaping bowl of curry goat and oxtail. The Curry Shop heads to the Caribbean this week, and who better to breakdown the dos and don’ts than two generations of dancehall legends? Jeesam peas!
– First We Feast

They lost Horsepowar with the patois at first. She had to call a timeout on the chit-chat. Ha!

Food: Pasta… Healthy, Affordable, And FAST (Video)

If you can’t tell, I am really on these ‘Eat Seeker’ vids from Thrillist lately. And if you couldn’t have guessed, I LOVE GOOD PASTA! I’m saying though… Who doesn’t??

It takes less than 45 seconds for Chef Mark Ladner to cook you a bowl of pasta at his new spot, Pasta Flyer. This isn’t a new chef-driven fast-casual concept that charges $13 for fettuccine with alfredo. This is real fast food – it’s under $9, lightning fast and has the added bonus of healthy ingredients sourced from around the city. This is the way fast food should be.

Food/Travel: Jo Koy’s Filipino Foodie Course Looks Epicly Delicious (Video)

You didn’t think Action Bronson was the only rapper that was heavy into foodie-ism, did you? Actually, I kinda get it if you did… what with Bam Bam being the one we see most across that part of the blogosphere. But First We Feast just busted through that crusted wall!

Welcome to the Curry Shop: a new weekly series that explores one of the world’s most misunderstood comfort foods. From Japan to Jamaica to China to Vietnam, every culture has its own spin on a bowl of curry—and Indian-Canadian rapper Horsepowar is here to sample them all.

The first stop on Horsepowar’s quest is the Philippines. To help Horsepowar answer some of her burning curry questions, she’s teaming up with the hilarious Filipino comedian and food philosopher Jo Koy. At Maharlika in NYC, Jo drops some knowledge about Bicol Express—a spicy, coconut-based stew that bears a striking resemblance to some of the curries Horsepowar has sampled in her travels. But the feast doesn’t end there: From remixed chicken and waffles, to 7-Up–cured pork tenderloin, Jo and Horsepowar also explore the cultural roots of Filipino fusion before making a final verdict on Bicol Express. Is Bicol Express truly a curry? Is curry really just a stew? Find out the answers to these existential food queries on the series premiere of the Curry Shop.

Food: This Vegan Restaurant Insists It Serves ‘Cheese’… Even If It Is Non-Dairy (Video)

Crazy how I keep coming across more and more vegan stuff that I would scarf down, like, IMMEDIATELY! Like this stuff… making me an ‘Eat Seeking’ missile over here!

Chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz wants people to rethink the language they use when it comes to vegan food. The owner of Modern Love in Brooklyn, New York, believes people need to say the word “cheese,” even if they are referring to the non-dairy-based alternative. This is apparent on her menu, offering dishes like the modern cheese plate, an assortment of various vegan cheeses that imitate the flavors and textures of dill Havarti and chevre.
– Thrillist

Cheese glorious cheese (remember that commercial?); even this vegan variety gets me singing. And I haven’t even tried it yet #BucketList #FillMyBucketWithThis

Chrissy Teigen Vs. The World’s Hottest Hot Wings (Video)

Started the Hot Wing challenge like an O.G., but how will lovely Chrissy be at the end?

Chrissy Teigen kicks off Hot Ones Season 7 in dramatic fashion, taking one of the most unorthodox approaches we’ve seen yet to the wings of death. As she licks her way through the all-new hot-sauce lineup, the cookbook author, model, and entrepreneur discusses her most memorable Twitter wars, recommends the turkey leg at Medieval Times, and breaks down a no-fail recipe for Thai ribs. Watch the epic meltdown, and check out Chrissy’s new book, Cravings: Hungry for More.
– First We Feast

Wow. I just went back through the clip and found the HOTTEST ‘Hot Ones’ moment ever… at the 8:25 mark, when Chrissy asks Sean… “Can I suck on it?”

From that point on, the ‘challenge’ is very different… for me (whew)!

Food: You ‘Win Son,’ You Lose None… Of The Taiwanese Culture & Flavor (Video)

Careful about throwing around the word ‘authentic’ or being so quick to judge what is not authentic. I came across this Eat Seeker video and played (and decided to share) it because the food looked delicious. But this (and like their other episodes) go deeper than ‘staying true’ to where the cuisine is ‘from’… Get into the meaning behind the dishes, the motives and motivations of the chefs. This clip [and series] is cool (AND delicious)!

Over the last few years, Taiwanese food has slowly been getting a little more recognition across the city of New York. At the beloved Taiwanese spot, Win Son, co-owners Trigg Brown and Josh Ku have worked incredibly hard to build an association with the language they use on their menu. Together they have crafted a menu that highlights Taiwanese mainstays like the o-a jian (oyster omelette), fly’s head, and danzi noodles at their Brooklyn restaurant. Their hope is that small changes like using the Taiwanese dish names on the menu can help promote Taiwanese cultural and culinary identity in the city.

Food: The Story Behind The Garlic Crab And Mac-N-Cheese At Nana’s Seafood & Soul (Video)

Several references to Gullah Geechee style cooking and cuisine in this. Charlamange Tha God (of NYC’s Breakfast Club Morning Radio Show) talks up that culinary tradition on occasion as a Carolina native. The history is interesting (found a write-up on Zagat, linked here)… and the food looks delicious! Foodie road trip anyone?

Mother and son Carolyn & Kenyatta McNeil of Nana’s Seafood-Soul Takeout restaurant, have taken traditional soul food dishes and spiced things up.

Food: Sean Evans Tastes Beer Spiked With Mace! (Video)

Okay, the category is ‘food’ but the focus is more on ‘drink’ (sorry not sorry). Just seems right that somebody take the guy torturing celebs with The World’s Hottest Wings on a tour-de-beer that includes some KILLER spices.

Sean Evans is the perfect guinea pig for one of Dogfish Head brewmaster Sam Calagione’s craziest recipes to date: In Your Mace, a pepper spray-infused stout custom-made for someone who has eaten the spiciest wings on the planet. Before unleashing this diabolical creation on Sean, Sam warms him up with a crash course in how to pair spicy foods with beer. Then, the duo decides to kick things up even further by running the Mace-spiked beer through a special contraption stuff with Carolina Reapers, Chocolate Bhutlahs, and a boatload of other peppers from chile guru Smokin’ Ed Currie.

Food: McDonald’s In Mexico Has Tastier Menu Items Than In U.S. Franchises? (Video)

I’m saying though: A lot of this does look good af. Don’t think I would go as gaga over McD’s potato wedges. We can get good wedges in the states, just not at Mickey D’s. And I’m cool with that.
