There are probably only two things in the world that I think I’m truly good at. First is sleeping. Second is eating. But you can’t just always eat out or else you’ll go broke and/or get super rotund. Thus, I frequently cook my own meals and here are just a couple dishes that I’ve made recently! String beans with bacon strips A real man’s salad – chicken breast on a bed of arugula Crabby Patties! Nah just normal beef patties from Trader Joe’sProbably one of my favorite dishes to cook – braised chicken wings. Pretty simple steps: 1. Heat up olive oil in pan and brown both sides of wings 2. Pour 1/4 cup soy sauce and flip the wings to make sure both sides get coated 3. Add 2 cups water 4. Add sriracha sauce to add a little kick to the wings 5. Put on light boil for 40 minutes Homemade mochi! Just kidding, these were store bought but they’re so beautiful aren’t they? Green tea mochi with red bean pasteWhite peach mochi so good
I’ma let you finish but uh… Jose Garces is KILLING it right now. I’ve been to 4 out of the 7 Garces Group restaurants in Philadelphia (Amada, Distrito, Chifa, and now Whiskey Village) and every single one has managed to impress me. Whiskey Village’s Pulled Pork Sammy is amazing and so is the Village Burger. Duck Fat French Fries are good too, make sure to get the cheese sauce as well. As the name suggests, they are known for their whiskey – over 100 selections to choose from. I got the RedBreast on the rocks and would recommend it to anyone. The one thing I would be aware of is that the place is extremely small and the wait is really long (~2 hours on weekends) so make sure to go early (at like 5pm) on weekdays if you don’t want any wait time. Final verdict: omnomnomnomnom.
