Arroz con Gandules

$5.00 lunch from a roadside stand in Puerto Rico, with an ocean view. This dish had a wonderful smokey flavor that, unfortunately, I am having a hard time duplicating quite as well in my own kitchen.

Multiple stands in Puerto Rico sell these along with fried "antojitos" (snacks).

Istanbul Turkish Restaurant

Colorful narrow stone streets in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Scenes from Istanbul Turkish restaurant

The check is brought to the table in a wooden box.

Diners on Trip Advisor gave this restaurant four out of five stars. I was not quite as impressed with the food and thought it was more towards the mediocre range, although a nice change of pace from the heavier Puerto Rican food.

The Honest Pint

Beer and boxtys at the Honest Pint, a new Irish pub in Chattanooga. This boxty (an Irish potato pancake) was filled with steak, peppers, and jalapenos, and was alot tastier than it probably looks in this photo. We had a lovely brunch while listening to live Irish music. The cheesecake was excellent also.

Chocolate Wine

Finally, a wine that I can pour on my cereal.
