It's actually Ranch dressing with a bit of wasabi mixed in. I chose that over their ginger dressing. Pretty awesome...unless this is the exact thing you are describing.

to be on topic: I ate a sandwich. I didn't take a picture of it, but it looked like a sandwich.

It had a certain sandwichyness about it.

Well, I didn't eat this today, but I had to take a picture and this is the perfect excuse to share it.

There's a local sushi restaurant franchise called Sushi Itto (http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&ct=res&cd=1&ved=0CAcQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sushi-itto.com%2F&ei=IpxPS7TXD82llAf01cWlCg&usg=AFQjCNHM1PVU88bdMXYD4tsCy_p3qUjkkw&sig2=LOCvpoMjNTKaTlwLLPRZBA) (a pun on the Spanish diminutive, thus making it sound like "shushito" or "little sushi.") Aside from traditional fare, they also offer original, sometimes wacky house specialties with punny names. One of these is the "Arrachera (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrachera) Sushi," consisting of steak instead of fish, cabbage, sauce, and tortilla instead of seaweed. With a small side of salad.

Ladies and gentlemen, picture what I just described. Picture it firmly in mind. And behold!

http://www.the-weaving.com/images/temp/DSC03101.JPG

The Arrachera Sushi... is a cut-up burrito!

And this sushi fails at the "with rice" part because it doesn't have one grain of rice in it!

Man, I hate that watery mayonnaise-based dressing that some Japanese restaurants use. Puts me off the entire meal.

Even worse, though, are all the Japanese salads that just use mayonnaise as a dressing.

Whenever I get the typical, "Are there any Japanese foods you can't eat?" question, I almost always answer, "Mayonnaise on salads," which gives me an opportunity to explain to them just how much their country is doing it wrong re: mayonnaise. (Plus I love umeboshi and anko and am okay with natto, so I can't think of any other answer.)

The place I usually go to stays away from the sauces, but the other night we tried a different place to mix things up. They had this orange sauce on some of their sushi that sort of tasted like thousand island dressing, and it was pretty darn good.

They also had white tuna, which I had never tried, but was delicious.

Man, I hate that watery mayonnaise-based dressing that some Japanese restaurants use. Puts me off the entire meal.

Of the 5 or so salads I've ever eaten, I've determined that I like less dressing than a restaurant is likely to put on the salad in general. I really wish they'd give the dressing to me on the side without me having to ask.

This goes doubly for the aforementioned Japanese mayo dressing, which is disgusting.

http://img413.imageshack.us/img413/4152/photody.jpg

So this week, I got the ginger dressing rather than the wasabi ranch. It was...not so bad! What is kind of so bad is this restaurant consistently putting too much dressing as Calorie said. It tasted pretty good but to me it looks a lot less appetizing than ranch.

All that for $9.08 including tax and tip!!

Shay's Cheese Melt at Jodie's in Albany, CA. A half pound of ground beef, three strips of bacon, hash browns, Swiss and American cheeses, and red onions between two slices of Russian swirled rye bread. Uh, and a salad.

Gastronomic intensity of the meal notwithstanding, anyone and everyone here in the East Bay (and environs) needs to experience this restaurant, because it's amazing and has a lot of (relatively) lighter menu items.

When thinking about dinner for this evening, my mind started running through the usual suspects about 5pm: my favorite thai place was open, my favorite pizza place was still just two blocks from my house, and I had a brand new coupon book to suggest dozens of places.

I was in the mood for something novel, though, so I browsed through yelp and found nothing, and went through urban spoon. Towards the end of the alphabetical listing, I found an entry that was unfamiliar, had one or two positive reviews, but basically no info other than a phone number and an address. Google mapping the address, it was in a place I knew, but had never gone far enough into to notice this restaurant. What sealed the deal, however, was that it is attached to a culinary school.

I drove over, navigated the backstreets to get there, and found the parking lot completely full, including one truck parking in front of the dumpster blocking four people in, and the mini parked in the sub-compact parking spot out front.

I moved my car across the street, walked in, and found myself completely outclassed. Walking in, the first impression was 'oh, it's crowded', then realizing I was just looking at the bar. A woman whom I believe was the manager of the culinary school fussed over me for being alone, and showed me to a seat in the back of the room, from where I could watch everyone.

There were a couple dozen tables, all covered with two tablecloths and wine glasses. On one wall, there was a leather couch with a coffee table in front of it, and votive candles were on every table. The ceiling was a chic black semi-unfinished style, with modular mood lighting, and the walls were covered in a textured adobe simulacrum.

The menu was only one page, all standard Italian dishes (ravioli and salad for appetizers, spaghetti, lasagna, chicken parmigiana, chicken fettuccine for main courses, tiramisu and something called spumoni for dessert), while the wine list was an entire page, with another page of beers on the back.

I chose the fettuccine and spumoni and settled in to wait. Everyone around me was well-dressed, some in dinner coats even. All were middle or upper class whites, and I wouldn't be surprised if all were locals. I got the vibe that this was the kind of place you kept quiet about. Indeed, I kinda felt like rabble sitting there in a hoodie and jeans. The woman who seated me spent a long time talking convivially with the couple sitting in front of me; she seemed to know them, and when they paid their check and were replaced by a young couple, she seemed to know them, too. Evidently, they come here regularly, or at least often.

Two slim young women slid into the corner behind me, where there were some microphones, and set up their guitar and amplifier. They were dark haired, dressed elegantly, and proceeded to play a series of 1970s hits, crooned in feminine harmony. I would totally hit that.

When my food arrived, I cut a slice of the bread, and found not only was it freshly arrived from the oven, but it was completely delicate, soft, and sweet, with some savory butter on top.
With the first bite of chicken fettuccine, I had to stop, compose my thoughts, and snap a picture for posterity.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5310/5622856461_c54ebdffe8_z.jpg

The pepper excited every taste bud in my mouth, and the sauce proceeded to massage them firmly but sweetly. The noodles were cooked to a consistency where you aren't really aware you are eating them, and the chicken and peppers and mushrooms were finely chopped into perfect bite sizes.

It took all of my willpower to not devour the entire plate before me, for, as I reminded myself, I had spumoni to come.

What was spumoni? As the hipster twins behind me transitioned to 1990s pop hits, my waitress reappeared and promised to box my remnants and return with spumoni.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5268/5622857427_1a772d824e_z.jpg

Spumoni, in this instance, was ice cream, coated with sliced almonds, and crowned with a maraschino cherry. As I manipulated this concoction delicately into my mouth, I realized that it was swimming in a pool of liqueur.
The overall effect was one of eggnog and rum at Christmastide, and I slipped into a partial reverie, savoring the experience.

But, alas, all delicious things come to an end, and when my waitress returned, she brought with her the box of tomorrow's lunch and a ticket. My bladder was calling at this point, so I paid a visit to the powder room.

http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5230/5622933231_063ced544c_z.jpg

Like the food and outside décor, the bathroom was ultimately overwhelming. You can see the corner of an ornate wooden screen that shields the toilet from the openness of the room.

Going back out, I retrieved my receipt and card and box, and made my way out to my car.

When I turned back to look at it, the building had become a desolate ruins, overgrown with vines and brush. The leftovers in my box had turned to dust, and my clothes were in ruins, my car a rusted heap.

They say you should not eat or drink in the fairy country, and I count myself fortunate to have come away with my life.

When eating indian or nepalese food, there are four main components that are necessary for us:

I can't remember if I ever posted this picture here. A friend and I ate at a Japanese place two years ago that had Tuna Carcass on the menu - basically what was left on the tuna bones after they cut the rest off for sushi. We got to pick off the rest of the raw tuna. Yum!

So I went to my local pub for a beer special, and unexpectedly they had (a very limited number of portion of) snow crab legs on the menu. Hot damn. I love me some crustaceans.

Unfortunately I didn't get a picture this time, but at the same local pub last night I had this amazing huge burger patty that was made with cheddar and goat cheese inside the patty. It was super delicious. Oh, it also had "apple chow" on top, which was some kind of relish made with apples, also tasty.

Last year, I heard about a primarily Canadian thing called a cabane a sucre or sugar shack (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugar_house). I was intrigued by the idea, especially because there was a fantastic restaurant in Montreal called Au Pied du Cochon that runs one. Mrs. Match and I decided to see if we could get a slot during the season to celebrate our birthdays. I emailed the folks at PdC in November and heard back a couple of weeks ago that they could fit us in. We grabbed the slot and added room for MCBanjoMike and his lovely S.O. This past weekend, we ran the maple culinary gauntlet. Mike will probably correct me on some of these since I didn't always catch the local naming for some of the stuff and/or the details may have been lost in my post-feast stupor. I took the pictures with my iPhone, but not all of them came out too well. Sorry for that.

The place is built in the style of a rustic lodge with family-style seating:
http://www.arglebargle.com/mage/images/cas_11.jpg

Up front they tell you they're going to give you way more than you can eat and they hand out to-go containers so that you can package up anything you can't finish to take home. I wasn't joking when I said "gauntlet" above.

This year, the chef decided to bookend the meal with dessert. To start, they gave us this tower of diabetic coma-inducing confection:
http://www.arglebargle.com/mage/images/cas_10.jpg

On this: shots of gin and maple sugar, maple caramel corn, maple cotton candy w/donut puffs, cookies w/marshallow on top and covered in chocolate, maple sponge candy, almond-maple croissants, a maple custard, and tiny ice cream cones filled with maple syrup and crystalized maple sugar.

Once that was out of the way, we got our first courses. Breaded duck leg confit w/a bowl of maple syrup to brush on as desired:
http://www.arglebargle.com/mage/images/cas_1.jpg

Omelette w/ maple bacon and brains (I can't remember if they were calf or something else):
http://www.arglebargle.com/mage/images/cas_2.jpg

Pancakes with beans, cottage cheese, and foie gras:
http://www.arglebargle.com/mage/images/cas_3.jpg

Endive salad with duck heart and what were essentially pork rinds:
http://www.arglebargle.com/mage/images/cas_4.jpg

Of all those, the best dish was definitely the duck legs. I'd never eaten brains or foie gras. The latter was definitely more enjoyable than the former.

From there, we got a dish that wasn't on the standard menu, but that we opted for since we figured if we were there, we should go all in. The tourtiere pictured here is the regular version which we got:
http://www.arglebargle.com/mage/images/cas_5.jpg

After the previous round, we were realizing that we'd made a huge miscalculation on that whole "all in" thing. The upside was that we didn't opt for the more over the top version of the tourtiere which added another whole cheese in between the meat pie filling and the top layer. The one we saw was probably at least 4" taller than the one we had.


Now it was time for the main courses! (cue groaning)

A whole chicken stuffed w/lobster on a bed of green beans. The sauce that came with this was a-ma-zing:
http://www.arglebargle.com/mage/images/cas_7.jpg

A pineapple and maple glazed ham w/boiled potatoes:
http://www.arglebargle.com/mage/images/cas_8.jpg


Having barely survived the onslaught, they tried to finish us off with a final dessert round. In front is a sponge cake. Behind and to the right is some sort of maple gelatine cube thing that nobody even bothered to try. Mike thought they might put it on their mantle. On the right behind the cake is some maple taffy-like stuff. It's based on a traditional winter treat where they take the sap and prepare it slightly differently than syrup then pour it onto the snow to cool:
http://www.arglebargle.com/mage/images/cas_9.jpg


Try as they might, though, we all lived to tell the tale, although Mrs. Match claims we don't need to repeat the experience. See the determination on Mike's and my faces as we vow to not let the gluttony destroy us:
http://www.arglebargle.com/mage/images/cas_6.jpg

Definitely a unique dining experience.

You say that, but we're still eating the leftovers (the cube did not end up on the mantle, however).

Yeah, Kurt is basically me in 10 years if I let my beard grow out and dropped my voice by an octave.

Also, something inside me is actually kind of offended/disturbed at the idea of purposely serving a gluttonous feast nobody would be able to finish. At least it got taken home and didn't go to waste.

But that's the beauty of the thing! They expect you to take everything that you don't eat home, so there's no harm in giving you FOUR TIMES MORE FOOD than any reasonable human could ever eat. We left with three aluminum containers that were collapsing under the weight of the food they contained.

Irish Dip

Okay, yeah, it's a French dip. Served at an Irish bar; the cute rename is theirs.

Prime rib smoked on-site and roasted to medium-rare perfection. Served with sauteed mushrooms and horseradish on toasted French bread. Swiss cheese and sauteed onions optional. Not pictured: real au jous and the other half of the sandwich. Because I ate it.

I wanted to have a 'nice' dinner, and we agreed on a Japanese steakhouse we'd never been to before. What I didn't realize at the time was that their specialty was wagyu (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kobe_beef).

The hostess told us all about how these Japanese cows only ate fresh alfalfa, were fed from bottles by hand (because it makes all the difference if a hand is holding the bottle), and—no shit—only listened to classical music.

I wanted to be like, lady, are you sure they were really listening to it, though? I only want to eat steaks that majored in music history.
