Dave sparked a lot of conversations this week--his post on great South County bagels, an interview with birfer godmother Orly Taitz and his brilliant coining of a new term to describe how non-ethnics get treated at ethnic restaurants: "whited." But can a Mexican get whited?
Edwin went On the Line with one of the Bruxie guys, found a new Okinawan restaurant in Tustin, and reported on a company trying to turn the already-mythologized Four Loko drink into ethanol for cars.
My big contribution to our food section wasn't on the blog, but rather our cover story this week: the history of the El Torito chain. But I also put two great potato tacos against each other; reported that activists are trying to convince the Board of Supervisors to allow the homeless, disabled and elderly to use food stamps at restaurants; and tried to make sense of a report that doesn't list Orange County as a great place to open a fast-food franchise.
Michelle, meanwhile, enjoyed curry udon. And Shuji railed against those imperial Brits messing with how big a beer vessel can be.
