The Food thread

Been a while since we've talked food.

Rather than defaulting this only to what we've eaten last/recently...
I'm going to open the floor to any kind of food discussion.
Favourite foods.
Something you've always wanted to try but never have.
Food experiences.
Cooking wins/fails.
Places or foods you've seen recently that have intrigued you.
Ask for advice, there's some pretty solid cooks around the place.

Really anything. If it's food related throw it in.

So today I had some wholegrain bread with bacon (realised we hadn't had bacon in forever...), tomato sauce on the side, also a mixture of kewpie and some Bunsters "shit the bed", which is an AMAZING Australian made product - you guys can get it overseas, they're shipping now. Highly recommended.


Here's a couple of pictures of some good we've had recently.
Not sure what order they'll come up in...

One is some fish we had at this thai place...the hot/sour/sweet thing it had going on was excellent.
The only problem was, it was Barramundi, a very delicate fish...and it had that pour-over hot oil cook on it..which kind of fried it not just on the surface but into the flesh a bit too much. Made it chewy.
We've eaten here quite a few times now and it's one of our favourite places, Spal is actually having her birthday there this year.
They do a steamed fish that's much better, and an amazing prawn/green papaya salad which is just one of my favourite things right now.

The other picture is a shared meal we got at "TGIFs" for a friends birthday.
The steak was of quality and cooked very well...or, very rare as it were.
The onion rings were maybe one of my favourite examples.
The fries were garbage.
The ribs were cooked right, but not basted while cooking...after trying their sauces, I can see this was a wasted potential.
The prawns were ok, but needed some citrus going on.
We got a couple more side dishes, and my friend who made the mistake of telling them it was his birthday, had the staff present him with a free sundae, and all sing him a birthday song. Awkward.
All in all though - it's simple food, done well, but it could be better.

Why do 90% of places fuck up fries?

I don't get it either.
Though one thing that always gets me is...why the fuck do places still buy frozen crap fries? It's so easy and not even very time consuming with the right equipment to make your own...especially within the confines of a commercial kitchen...and they end up far superior.

Only thing that shits me more is if you go out to a takeaway for a chicken burger and they give you one with a pre-cooked frozen/reheated store bought type thing on it.
Chicken thigh. Hammer the shit. Season the shit. Grill the shit. Easy, delicious burger material right there.

Food can be dangerous at expensive restaurants.

Suspect #1 - Poor temperature monitoring throughout (most likely) the transport process. One would hope not the kitchen, it's slightly less likely.

#2 - Cross contamination. Seafood can be volatile.

Speaking of food poisoning...reheating some chicken as we speak ha

Made a pot roast yesterday. Actually came out quite nice. Seared the meat after seasoning and threw it in a 350 oven with carrots, celery,onions and red bliss potatoes for 3 hours. The wife was pretty impressed.

Now would you have had a cover on that? Would you have taken it off towards the end? I never have any luck with pot roast.
