Tail for Valentine’s
- I Have a Panahar-don -
…for Malaysian cuisine. (Was that not classy?) – anywho, conveniently located next door to one of my other favorite restaurants, Harmony Vegetarian Chinese, Panahar is a great spot to try some extra tasty Malaysian food (heads up: the cuisine is kind of a blend of Thai, Japanese, & something else funky too…)
Soup for One
I’ve worked for many a Chinese family (true story), and if its one thing I’ve picked up from their culture, its that cuisine can be medicinal, and that’s a beautful thang!

Broke in Berlin # 12
So I used to eat Ramen noodles like everyday in middle school, right? The Marchuan joints from Sam’s Club and all that . . . but I shook the habit mad years ago. Until Batsauce got sick and he wanted some Ramen – and in Berlin you can go anywhere and get the dope import Ramen with the oil flavor pack, yada yada. So when I saw they had “vegetable flavor” - I was game. Plus – it would be only fitting to indulge in some Ramen in celebration of my homie, P.Locke’s (Therapy) new album coming out soon on Tres Records – “Super Ramen Rocketship” – I am one of the privileged few to know firsthand that it is going to rearrange your spinal cord! BLAU!
I had the pleasure of having Supa Dave West over for a few days not too long ago – (to work on a joint for the project I’m doing with Willie Evans Jr. – craziness). Well if you’ve seen the Southern Scramble Promo Video I did with Dave last summer, you know how we get it in when it comes to food. It was the late night snack tip, and I decided to throw down with the pan-fried Gyoza. (Japanese dumplings). These joints are stuffed with veggies: carrot, scallion, cabbage, etc. – BOMB! Pan fry ‘em in a lil canola/sesame oil blend – get em all crispy ya know? Then it’s all about the sauce – Soy, lemon juice , garlic, jalapenos, sesame oil (just a touch),scaliions on top . . . yo . . .YO!!
