Re: “The Case Against DIY

I love the Beloved Bean Bowl! Right re the DIY thing -- It's hard to have a little bit of fresh mango, and a fresh green salsa on hand at home, for example. Yay Beachcomber!

Re: “Humboldt on Tap

Stop by Humboldt Rejuvenation on Central Ave in McKinleyville for some great beer and wide assortment of farm to bottle beer brewing. The owner is fun to talk with and he brews on site in a warehouse with tasting room. Check it out. Bring a growler for take-home.

Re: “A September to Remember

I'm curious about the beautiful produce in the photo; What farm was this food grown on? Was it really a local farm?

Re: “Reubenesque

When Go-Go Bistro occupied this space they served a similar sandwich. The name of that sandwich as listed on the menu was "Reubenesque". The version served by Nourish is almost as good.

Re: “Roasted Chilies

For the past three years, Safeway has been carrying genuine Hatch chile for the reasonable price of .99 pound. They are gone now as the Hatch season is over. However I roasted 20 pounds and they are in the freezer. My favorite recipe is Chile Relleno's made with Hatch, New Mexico style, chile filled with cheese, floured, and dipped in beaten egg whites with gently folded egg yokes. Then covered with New Mexico red sauce. As a New Mexican Native, it is important to note that chile is a traditional Native American food and is more American than aple pie.

Re: “Fair Factor

Great writing, it does my tummy a whirl.

But just so you know, I have met chickens (roosters) that could "drag you into a death roll" easily enough. Remember, birds are rather recently descended from dinosaurs, while alligators have been evolutionarily comatose for 200 million years.

Still, they ALL taste like chicken.

Re: “Chile vs. Chile

Too bad La Barca didn't get nominated. It is my personal favorite. Their relleno has a subtle smokey flavor, great Mexican queso fresco, nice batter, and a very good sauce.

The local Facebook Chile Relleno Study Group thought Esmerelda's was good, though their marginal service ticked us off. The group very much liked the Fiesta special relleno (as opposed to their regular omelet style).

I like the way Pam spreads the love.

Re: “Chile vs. Chile: Fortuna Strong

You left out Las Casuelas. Also, I think Taco Loco wins, hands down. But best steak burrito? No contest! It's La Costa! Oh, and then let's not forget the best chicken mole....Gotta leave Fortuna on that one. Oaxaca Grill is #1!

Re: “Chile vs. Chile: Eureka

I've been away for 3 years, but Ricos in Arcata used to be the best relleno for my taste!
