It all started when this strange fellow named Sir Kensington started tweeting using the #NASFT hashtag that people use at the Summer and Winter Fancy Food shows. This silly chap was offering free moustaches. Moustaches? For free? And what is... Continue reading

One of the best waffles any of us have ever eaten. So luscious and flavorful that there's absolutely no syrup needed whatsoever. Guess what? It comes frozen! Given the best ingredients and the best waffle iron known to man, I... Continue reading

Best of show product at only the third booth we went to? That's crazy. It might happen. We shall see. On the first day of the show, we encountered SanTasti. They claim to have developed a fizzy drink that cleanses... Continue reading

About 45 minutes into the meal, Designer Girlfriend looked up at Actual and shrugged. "Yum." That about sums it up. For my readers not fortunate enough to ever go to a Brazilian steakhouse, it pretty much works like this: Sit... Continue reading

It seems that I have come full circle. All of my birthday parties growing up were pizza parties. In previous years, I tried different venues and cuisines. Unfortunately, every cuisine has its haters. Except, it seems, pizza. Wanting to maximize... Continue reading

A shabu shabu place? In Sacramento! I have dined at over 100 shabu places around the world. Heat Shabu Baru is better than all but one, and that meal, in Tokyo, cost me more than 20 times what this one... Continue reading

Kind of like when I discovered McDonald's poutine, I was morbidly curious when I heard that Burger King was selling bone-in ribs made in their new broiling machines. Really? I had to see this disaster for myself. For $7.50 I... Continue reading

This review started with a conversation that a year ago I would have considered improbable to say the least. First, let me tell you about my (almost) father-in-law, henceforth referred to as Daddy Actual. He rides a Harley. He's from... Continue reading

The best places we eat in the name of Chomple seem to be the places where we can't believe we found what we did where we did. A full rijsttafel serving Indonesian restaurant next to a pizzeria. A world-class sushi... Continue reading

Girlfriend Actual's dad lives in an octagon. No joke. Daddy Actual decided he was done with us suburban folk and moved up into the foothills and into a giant octagonal house. Luckily for us, he took all of his meat... Continue reading

Ruen Thai, I'm sorry to say, I really liked your restaurant. Why am I sorry? It's simple. Every Thai restaurant in town that I like ends up going out of business. It's a curse. My favorite place in town used... Continue reading
