Homemade Pork Chops In Vegas

Last week I was made an awesome ass meal where the star was homemade pork chops. I don't get to eat them often and when I do its at a restaurant and they don't make them the same way. The way Chocolate Queen made them was perfect. I mean seriously perfect. I sat down and had to force myself not to eat like an animal though towards the end I did put the fork and knife down and used my hands. I don't care how that sounds. It was so good that bringing utensils into the equation just slowed me down.

At Natalee Thai Again

I had not been to Natalee Thai in a few years so when me and Cam were trying to figure out what to get to eat before an interview we went to in Santa Monica the plan was some sorta burger joint. We passed this and I mentioned how good it was and how I had not been in a while so we stopped here. We started off with the chicken and shrimp wontons which are still really good, huge, and filling. I need to learn to remember that this can be a meal in and of itself.

Cam got the chicken larb and didn't like it that much. I have not tried theirs but larb seems like it would be hard to mess up. I didn't try it because I was filling myself up on my meal and those wontons I had.

I had the Korean barbecue beef. This was a really good dish. I wish it was sliced though. With beef this thin there's really no point in leaving it whole. It had a side of kim chee which I didn't eat. I don't like that stuff. I had a side of white rice and it came together well. This place is good but the waitress we had could have doubled as a magician the way she kept disappearing. 

Tilapia Ceviche

This past weekend H. made some awesome ass ceviche. I had some a long time ago made with shrimp and it was very bitey. The one she made had tilapia which I raved about a few years back when I had a huge supply of it and was able to experiment (click here for my first try at it). H. told me all the ingredients that she used and or course I cant remember them. I inhaled this with some surfboard chips from Trader Joe's. Very good and I'd love to give this a try myself.

Dorito's Jacked Ranch Dipped Hot Wings

Have you ever had your mouth attacked? I have. Many times. But this time I'm talking about these new Dorito's Jacked Ranch Dipped Hot Wings. I got them at 7/11 which is the new home of great chips. I got one of the new sandwiches they have there and spotted these near the counter. They taste good but I'll be damned if they aren't crunchy as hell and very big. They are larger than the regular Dorito and way harder. If they had this same hot wing and ranch flavor but in a regular crunch I would enjoy them way more. I'll definitely try these again if only to have Cam write about them on her blog Potato Chips & Beer. Again, I’ll try these again but the next time I’ll at least have my mouth prepared for how huge and crunchy they are.
