Turkey Jalapeno Popper Chili

Turkey Jalapeno Popper Chili

Hey everybody! Here is the chili recipe I made during the latest podcast. I like eating things that are nuclear hot, so I added an extra jalapeno and used extra spicy salsa. It gave my buddy hiccups at the superbowl gathering I was at. Ingredients 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 medium red onion, finely chopped 2 jalepeno peppers, finely chopped 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 pound ground turkey 2 tablespoons taco seasoning 1 (14.5 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed 1 (14.5 ounce) can corn, … Read entire article »

CHECKERS COMPLAINT LETTER. YOUR PHILLY CHEESE STEAK SUCKS AND YOU SUCK.

CHECKERS COMPLAINT LETTER.  YOUR PHILLY CHEESE STEAK SUCKS AND YOU SUCK.

Every so often, Checkers offers the “Bacon Philly Cheese Steak Sub”, which looks quite tasty.  I’ve never tried it, but have ingested my fair share of their flagship The BIg Buford, which sounds like a character on The Dukes of Hazzard, or the brand name of an oblong sex device. After YouTubing several fat Rednecks gorging themselves on this “Philly Sub” while making gobbling grunts, I knew I had to try it.  When a Redneck moans, you … Read entire article »

RIP: Langermann’s on Light is Closed

RIP: Langermann’s on Light is Closed

Another one bites the dust Langermann’s on Light Street closed its doors this past Friday. This comes as no surprise to most people. If you were a frequenter of the restaurant, it was not a challenge to stroll in at 7PM on a Friday night and find yourself with prime pickings for any table in the restaurant. I’m actually a little disappointed to hear the news, because the scallops, among other menu items, were so … Read entire article »

Nachoquest: Barracuda’s

Nachoquest: Barracuda’s

A number of months ago I had posted a thing about roasted pork sandwiches and how Locust Point’s Barracuda’s had a decent version of it, not long afterward I received an email about how I had BLOWN THE CHANCE to sample Barracuda’s nachos, which the emailer raved about. Time passed, I forgot about it, seasons went by, and then I received another email from the same guy about the nachos, but this time with a … Read entire article »

Brothers Sushi: First Impressions

Brothers Sushi: First Impressions

It was a sad day recently when a Federal Hill sushi staple Nichiban finally closed its doors after many years and an eventual leasing issue (shocker) a few months ago, and in seemingly record time was replaced by Brothers Sushi, being helmed by a group of gentlemen very eager to serve the surrounding area even more sushi than before. As a first impression, in short, Brothers Sushi is pretty ok. In long, the interior has been … Read entire article »

Nachoquest: Willow

Nachoquest: Willow

Willow has been one of those establishments that has me a bit confused. With night and day reviews from the major local media outlets; beginning with the Sun’s favorable bar review and subsequent positive food review on one end, to CP’s rather underwhelmed take on the affair, it’s hard to put a finger on whether Willow is destined to sink or swim. One of their (and by “they” I mean Rye/Stuggy’s/Willow inc.) best mixologists, … Read entire article »
