Episode 507 – Our Weekly News!

“Food” & Garden ’19 – Japanese-style Fried Chicken on Shredded Cabbage – Hanami (Japan)

Had this one on a whim … and as a result of the fact that Hanami had no line at the particular time I walked past.  Lines were off the charts for most of the day I visited, by the way.

As for the dish … well, maybe it was one of the reasons for the absence of a line.  Much too simple of a preparation, it was quite overdone.  Overall, it was a big disappointment.  Pass it by, folks.

“Food” & Garden ’19 – Pulled Pig Slider – THE SMOKEHOUSE: Barbecue and Brews (The American Adventure)

Sadly … dry and a bit disappointing.  When compared to 2018’s festival-winning version, The Smokehouse let me down.  In fact, I needed BBQ sauce in order to “choke” 2019’s version down.

On the favorable side, like last year, it was a healthy-sized portion.  Typically very good, I’d still recommend you try it … but only while hoping you get a better serving than I did.

“Food” & Garden ’19 – Shredded Beef Brisket – THE SMOKEHOUSE: Barbecue and Brews (The American Adventure)

Hmm.  Shredded beef brisket?  OK.  Looked more like chunks, to me.  Anyway, the brisket, itself, was good.  The preparation itself, however, was a little bit under-whelming.  Frankly, I think The Smokehouse’s other options are more worthy of your hard-earned cash.

 

“Food” & Garden ’19 – Potato Pancake with Caramelized Ham – Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market (Germany)

D-e-e-e-e-licious!  A much bigger portion of ham this year, Germany scored a hit with this simple, yet somewhat complex, dish.

If I were to go back and re-sample any of the items I had, this would be one of them.  I give it a very big recommend!
