Actually, with sugar I was referring to normal coke. No light or zero versions for me-I just hate the taste of artificial sweeteners.

Another favorite...a turkey/feta cheese/jalopeno pie. LOVE it. Great for lunch.

Give me a nice salmon steak perfectly cooked and lightly spiced with garlic. My wife makes one to die for. Throw in some broccoli and a potato. That and a glass of iced tea would be heavenly.

There was a place called River Kwai in Chicago. It was truly magical.

It was a small free standing (well... BARELY standing) building, but the roof was coming down in one corner and there was literally a hole in the wall in another. The furniture was cheap, mismatched plastic lawn tables and chairs. And even still, there was only enough room for three or four tables. Strangely, there were something like 25 chairs though. So you could gather 10 people around a table, but nobody would really be "at" the table.

There were two guys who worked there: Desha and Boonsong. Brothers, according to legend. Desha took orders, Boonsong cooked. Neither of them really spoke any English. Desha would acknowledge orders (or regulars) with hostile sounding grunts, which were usually punctuated by a chuckle.

This place was not open during the day. It opened at 10:00 pm... or so. But people would line up beforehand, sometimes by an hour or more. There was never less than an hour wait to get food. Moreover, there was only one wok (and only one Boonsong), who deliberately cooked dishes one at a time. So even if six people in a party ordered at once, the first one would be finished by the time the last person got their food.

I'm not sure if all this detracted from the whole experienced or enhanced it. But my god, the food was good. I had never had food like that before or since.

Beverage: Hefeweizen, especially Berliner-style.


Ah, correction. I don't want to be an a-hole, but as y'all know, I care about beer.

Hefeweizen is a Bavarian specialty originally, and traditionally means that there is yeast (Hefe) in the bottle. (I once explained why I prefer bottled Hefeweizen to keg Hefeweizen, but that's another time and place.)

Berliner Weizen is a Berlin specialty (doh!) which is crystal clear (i.e., filtered to remove any yeast residue) and usually served with either a red syrup or a green syrup.

They are both wheat beers, but taste radically different, and they are served in radically different glasses. The traditional Bavarian Hefeweizen glass is shaped like what Americans call a pilsner glass; Berliner Weizen is served in a very round glass.

On topic: my favorite food--by far--is Asian. I pretty much like nearly every Asian country's contribution to cuisine. Of course, this statement could potentially raise a side issue of which countries belong to Asia. But let's not go there.

My favorite drink? Other than TANG? Uh...take a guess....

:lol:

EDIT:

Strangely enough, Wikipedia seems to be a good resource for the difference.

Hefe: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weissbier

Berliner: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berliner_Weisse

Who woulda thought? I thought I was the only one who was a bit anal about beer.

I am loving '64' beer. Once you divorce it from the idea that it's beer, it's great. Wheat flavored bubble water that doesn't fatten you up....and you can drink beer all night without getting S-faced.

For food, it would be a toss up between a good Porterhouse, and a Mesquite smoked Tri Tip.

Oh...almost forgot: A cup of Frenchroast with a 1/2 shot of Woodford Reserve, for flavor, every evening about 5.

I love a good Chicken Parmesan or a pesto dish of some kind, and my favourite drink is Stella Artois!

BBQ Baby Back Ribs with a sweet tangy sauce and a Sunner Kolsch from Cologne.

Arabic burritos? Small kebabs?

Diet Coke with mint leaves, must try that... Smile


Yes, chopped up seasoned kebabs with curry, ground red pepper, and a couple cloves of garlic and chick peas. Add rice and shredded cheese and serve in caboose (arabic pita bread). The mint leaves add a bite to the Diet Coke.

Would that make it a Coke-jito?

Perhaps, but then I would be charged $7 for a minty Diet Coke.
