Food Porn Friday

Hello darlings. Still a little lightheaded from all of yesterday’s sugar? Me too. That’s why I’m craving this sandwich. Who will fly it down from New York and join me for a bite?

Taken from the Top 101 Best Sandwiches in New York, behold the Sloppy Bao: “A Manwich for the modern multiculti appetite: curried ground beef garnished with green mango, cilantro, and as much jalapeño as you can bear. The secret ingredient? Ketchup.”

What are your food plans for the weekend?


Weekend Reads

When I wake up on a Saturday, I like to take it easy. Head to my local coffee shop for a massive café con leche, some toast, and the newspaper. Other days I can’t even be bothered to leave the house. I’ll curl up with my MacBook and catch up on all the things I’ve missed during the week. Here’s what’s on tap today:

Food Porn Friday

The sun is shining in Buenos Aires and it’s finally feeling like Spring (albeit a month late), so I don’t feel like focusing today. To indulge my adult ADD needs, here you go. A weekly feature that will provide a little visual relief to all of those waiting for the weekend.

Without further ado … I give you a dream sandwich. Hot Pastrami from Katz’s in New York. I first went when I was a wee Página, and have never had a better pastrami. Mmmm.
