A Magnum. I could eat a Magnum for hours, though unfortunately, since Heartbrand and Unilever have basically forgotten the ice cream market in Costa Rica, I can't get any.

And also, most of the stuff distributed under the German "Heartbrand" of Langnese. God, I miss Langnese down here, especially because of what they offered over 10 years or so ago...

Also potato chips. Here in Mexico instead of "Lays" they are called "Sabritas". The slogan for these potato chips is "A que no te puedes comer solo una", which translated to "You can't eat just one"

How about a guide to Mexican goodies? there's a great hispanic grocery a mile from me but I haven't a clue as to what most of the stuff is-just that people leaving with big bags of the stuff look very happy.

Quoting JAGflyer (Reply 39):
They throw dark/light soy sauce, vegetables, beef and the long flat rice noodles into a hot wok, mix it around fast for a few seconds and out comes this. This dish is EPIC! No visit to the Chinese restaurant is complete without it. I make it at home but you need a very strong gas range to get the wok hot enough to really bring out the flavor like you get in the restaurant.

A good plate of lo mein is a thing of beauty and a joy forever. It's pretty near the top of my list. Yeah, I know, American style Chinese food really ain't, but this is as good as it gets...usually I get steamed rice on the side so I don't miss any of the gravy, and it's a good time to road test the won ton soup. I can do all this at my local Chinese takeout for about $7.50.

My favorite most addicting food item?

Jarritos, without a doubt. It is just the best damned soda pop in the world, bar none.

As for something savoury (apart from Pasta), one of the things that I find most addictive but is mostly impossible to get, is a Pommes Rot-Weiß (basically fires with ketchup and mayonaise, and I mean the ones they make in Germany, which have always a special seasoning which doesn't exist here), a Döner, and a Currywurst (Hamburg/Ruhr-Area style, not the Berlin style because I never tried a Berliner Currywurst).

As for drinks, my choice is clear: Coca-Cola Classic! The original is always the best.

MEL, what is the difference between Vada Pav and Pav Bhaji?



Pav Bhaji is a thick paste of Vegetables & spices,served with a lot of butter & eaten like a curry.
Vada pav is a potato mix which is more dry,like a burger.

Onigiri...especially 鳥五目 kind.... basically chicken flavored rice balls you can buy at convenience stores in Japan. If anyone's living or visiting (or even just going through the airport in Narita) - Lawson's (common convenience store) has the best ones.

Thanks! I will look out for Vada Pav on my next foray to Edison NJ, but I am sure it will be a poor imitation of what you get Out There. Sadly, mass production has pretty much bred out the taste in vegetables here. To find a decent Aloo-Gobi is impossible - you need eye-watering onions, tomatoes with plenty of acid, cauliflowers that are pungent - just not available in the market.

Doesn't sound like red chile to me.

Course, you did say it was chilli, I think was the term. That's an entirely entirely different proposition.

You may gak at this but Walmart sells some pretty good canned red and green chile that's suitable for ordinary purposes. The green stuff's good on carnitas. One of my favoreets is chile colorado, which is small pieces of beef, boiled and then pan fried in red sauce accompanied by flour tortillas.

My local mexican restaurant sells a nice wet burrito that uses both red and green chile as a garnish.

Now that you have your marching orders, see you in Hatch, New Mexico. It's high season.

Amazing. I grew up near there (Metuchen) and the only Indian anyone'd heard of was a guy named Lakshmanan who worked for my father at Weston. I will have to earmark the place for a visit next time I'm in Jersey.

Now I am insulin-dependant diabetic and I can go through the day starting with a healthy breakfast, a light lunch and a sensible dinner. But the very sight of chocolate drives me insane and I am addicted to either a Cadbury's Dairy Milk bar, Cadbury's Flake or Mars bar. So bad is my addiction that I make sure there is no chocolate in my home. However, when the TV adverts come on for chocolate, I have to rush off to the late night shop and grab a few bars, and suffer from the consequences.

I can do without cigarettes, alcohol, even sex (!) but I am lost without the comfort of chocolate. They should ban any advertisements for chocolate, just like they have banned cigarette advertisement.

(Gone off to buy a nice Cadbury Flake - yummy yummy!)
