He stuck to some classics

If you originally thought a restaurant by the name of Puck's Tavern was a play on words, that's understandable. I didn't expect to see a celebrity chef, much less Wolfgang "I cater for the Oscars" Puck launching a culinary experience inside a sporting/concert venue--ever. Yet he did, late last year. Open only during days when Honda Center is holding an event, a pair of hockey tickets was an excuse to finally check it out.

While we didn't make a huge a dent on the menu, enough damage was done to provide a few highlights. Being open a few months now, one would imagine they've worked out the kinks, but . . . you'll just have to read on.

Themed Dinners At Tangata's "Bowers After Hours" Events

Categories: We Sell Out

Tangata.jpg

Spending time at a museum should be a cross between Ferris Bueller's Day Off and a Ben Stiller movie. In reality, it's much more tame. So I was curious to hear about a couple of prix-fixe dinners created by Tangata at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana. Served with optional wine pairings, the restaurant and museum mixed culinary and artistic talents into themed meals.

When a local lonchera does good, it's only right to celebrate. When I met Keba Parker last year, he was barely launching A Bite Truck. The wrap on his lonchera wasn't even completed when our photographer stopped by for his close-up. But a year and-a-half later, things are swell.

We Eat It So You Don't Have To: Sriracha Candy Canes

The Internet is a silly place.

It's spawned dancing hamsters, overly attached girlfriends, pedophilic bears, an unhealthy love of bacon and countless other strange, strange things.

Of course it's also at the center of the capsaicin cult that surrounds sriracha, what is probably the United States' favorite hot sauce.

So, when J&D Foods, the Seattle-based makers of bacon salt and frequent contributor with Web Comic Magician The Oatmeal, announced that they were releasing sriracha candy canes in time for the holidays, I can't say I was surprised.

In case you missed Michelle's breaking news or Edwin's informative update, we're here to catch you up on all things DTF inside SCP. To assist us with our story, we've got visual aids!

We typically refer fine Forkers to another media source for news we learn about. In this case, however, we look from within. Actually, we're redirecting you to our all-but-dormant personal blog for a change. We weren't in attendance at this week's media briefing of Din Tai Fung's future home, but the drawings and statements from people directly involved with this undertaking were made available to us. So of course we are happy to share the love.

In 1887, William Grant founded an independent, family-owned distiller in the United Kingdom. However, it wasn't until 1963 that United States markets were able to purchase their Single Malt Scotch whisky. After 125 years in the industry, William Grant & Sons wished to commemorate the milestone with valued partner Young's Market Company, also celebrating the same number of years in existence. Per Simon Hunt, President North America at William Grant & Sons, "Our commitment to innovative approach, long-term perspective and an entrepreneurial mindset has allowed us to successfully grow our businesses, and working together we've experienced record growth for our portfolio of premium spirits brands."

Despite all the religious and cultural celebrations that happened recently, more are around the corner. Easter, Mother's Day and Father's Day will come and go sooner than you think. So instead of scrambling to compile lists, we'll dish about some you might not have checked out yet. To start, we motor north to Brea Downtown for some funday.

If you're seeking somewhere chill, ChaCha's isn't for you. We mean that in the best possible way, because we're damn certain their biggest draw has more to do with their entertainment.

Is it really the end of January? Well, if you're undecided on where to watch the Harbowl (since we shouldn't refer to the other name, per this article) this weekend, one joint has an answer.

Savannah Chop House wants to fill your belly with two polar opposite options on Sunday. Take your pick between a $24.95 "hybrid" brunch, or cheesy, fried dishes and Happy Hour cocktails all priced at $5. We're kind of surprised they're also offering a bucket of 4 brewskis for the same price. Both meals kickoff at 11 a.m.

Mad Meat Men: Come Eat Our (Boar) Meat

Occasionally, and as a direct result of an OSHA investigation, the management of this blog unchains me and gives me a few hours of liberty; I like to spend it with a group of carnivores known as the Mad Meat Men.

A little while back, eight of us went in on an entire boar from Da-Le Ranch in Lake Elsinore, and it's time to make a little room in the freezer; we're having a boar feast this Sunday at 6 p.m. at Picnics Kitchen in Costa Mesa.
