Good Food - Crummy Service = Ruined Lunch

by noreply@blogger.com (Bite Me TV) @ eat. drink. BITE ME! - adventures in food and drink

I was reminded today about how important good customer service is to an enjoyable meal, or any other experience for that matter. Joel and I decided for lunch that we'd head over to a restaurant that we've frequented since it opened a couple of years ago. It's a small, family-owned place that serves some good food.

Sure enough, our food was as yummy as usual and I took some pics for the blog. But I'm not going to post those pics as our meal ended up being ruined by crummy service. We've been good customers of this restaurant since their beginning, yet we definitely received the cold shoulder today. While other tables were waited on in what looked like a timely fashion, we waited and had to ask for basic things that noone usually has to ask for. Even a minimum level of friendliness seemed to be absent. It was weird receiving service like this in a place so small and by people we've supported, and it made for the most uncomfortable lunch I've had in a long time.

I'm not going to name the restaurant as I didn't become a food blogger to start bashing people. Instead I'm going to take today's experience as a reminder of how important good service is. I read Danny Meyer's book Setting the Table a few years ago, and he made a huge point (a number of them, actually) about the importance of customer service. Meyer is a highly successful New York restaurateur whose restaurants include Union Square Cafe, Gramercy Tavern and The Modern. And he's right. The quality of the food matters at a restaurant, but I was reminded today that yummy food is not enough. We go to restaurants for experiences, and that means that food and service have to work hand-in-hand. The food can be stellar, but if the service sucks then the experience is ruined. Buzzkill...

Maybe I can find a way to discreetly communicate that point to the folks who run our unnamed restaurant. I'm all for promoting independent eateries and small family-run businesses, but I'll have to admit that I don't feel any desire to have lunch at that same place anytime soon.

Cheers!
Druu

BITE ME! the MAN Cooking Show - Shabu-Shabu

by noreply@blogger.com (Bite Me TV) @ eat. drink. BITE ME! - adventures in food and drink




BITE ME! the MAN cooking show
Episode 205 - Shabu-Shabu

The Japanese dish shabu-shabu might possibly be the world's perfect date food. Why? Not only is it light, healthy and delicious, but you cook it together with your date right at the table. She'll think it's crazy romantic and the next thing you know your clothes will be all over the floor.

In this episode, Josh Landis shows you how to set up and serve this secret weapon right in your own dining room. Here are the written recipe instructions.


Shabu-Shabu

1 pound shabu-shabu beef (Find it in the meat section of your local Asian market or have your butcher slice ribeye or top sirloin paper thin)
1 small head of napa cabbage
4 green onions
1 package of enoki mushrooms
1 bunch of chrysanthemum leaves (optional)
1 package firm or medium firm tofu
1 package udon noodles
1 clove garlic, finely chopped (optional)
1 bottle of pon shabu sauce (ponzu dipping sauce)
1 bottle of goma shabu sauce (sesame dipping sauce)
2 cups of white rice (preferably calrose)

Place portable burner in the middle of your table, or where you and your date can both reach it, and start a pot of water boiling. If you don't have a portable electric burner you can use your stove, but the whole cooking-together-date thing works way better with a portable burner at the table. You can get one for about $20 at your local discount store. Cook the rice. (For rice cooking instructions, see BITE ME! the MAN Cooking Show, episode 102.)

Peel off some napa cabbage leaves and cut them into 3-4 pieces each. You want each piece to be a little larger than bite-sized. Cut off the end of each green onion, then cut each one into finger-sized pieces. Cut off the dirty ends of the enoki mushrooms. Cut tofu into 1-inch cubes. Place all of your vegetables, plus the tofu and udon noodles, on a plate or plates next to your pot of boiling water. Pour the two shabu-shabu dipping sauces into small bowls for each of you. Finely chopped garlic goes great with the ponzu sauce, but if you're cooking for a date you might want to pass on it.  Once the rice is prepared, fill a bowl with rice for each of you.

To cook and serve, place pieces of vegetables and beef into the boiling water. Cook each bite as you go. The beef only takes about 15 seconds, while the vegetables, noodles and tofu take a few seconds longer. Once cooked, dip the pieces in either of your dipping sauces and eat with rice.

Food Jammers - The Cooking Show for Guys Who Are Buzzed

by noreply@blogger.com (Bite Me TV) @ eat. drink. BITE ME! - adventures in food and drink

Do you remember ever hanging out with your buds, either stoned or kinda drunk, and getting into a conversation that went sorta like:

"Dude, wouldn't it be cool if we built a.....so we could...?"

"Man, we could totally do that.  It would be awesome!"

"Yeah, man.  I can sooo see it now.  C'mon, bro.  Let's do it today.  Let's do it right now.  We could have this bad boy working in no time."

"Alright, man.  Yeah, let's do it.  Let me just take one more hit..."

You remember that, right?  Of course you do!  Well, somebody decided to take that basic idea and make a TV show out of it.  It's called Food Jammers.  Three Canadian dudes who have some building skills and a "WTF?  Let's do it!" attitude build these wild contraptions in each episode to cook up some kind of food or make some cool drinks.  While these guys are more beer drinkers than stoners (this is television after all), Food Jammers really is the ultimate stoner cooking show.  The series has been airing in Canada for three seasons, and this year's season 3 started airing in the U.S. on the Food Network's new Cooking Channel.

Here's a video clip from a couple of years ago where the three hosts modify their freezer so they can keep an eye on their chilling beers.  This might have even been shot before they had a proper TV show.



I watched the last episode of season 3 a couple of weeks ago, and the guys built a hot tub during Canada's winter so that they could relax outside and cook Japanese Shabu-Shabu and drink sake while being in the jacuzzi. It was pretty freaking awesome.

So check out Food Jammers on the Cooking Channel.  Here's a link to their show page on the Cooking Channel site.  The show might be a sausage farm without the babe action of our BITE ME! the MAN Cooking Show, and some of their contraptions may not be very practical, but the show is a lot of fun to watch while chilling in front of the tube with a beer in your hand.

Will These Biodegradable Bags Make It To The Mainstream?

by Tiffany @ Food Republic

To every hopeful tote-bag-carrying environmentalist, plastic bags’ days are numbered. Bans on bags are slowly sweeping nations and companies alike. And Indonesian-based Avani Eco is dedicated to making biodegradable bags out of yuca root. Avani Eco’s bags solve the problem of plastic harming animals when found in the seas because of its water-soluble properties. Since they’re made entirely of […]
