  1. Any fish sauce fans here? Red Boat is the best one I've found locally, but I just learned that people say salted fermented fish sauce will actually go bad after a year if opened.   


    I go through it pretty quick, but I'm very curious how since I [falsely?] have been telling people delicious salty rotten can't get more rotten.

      Jimmy, 88 Supermarket was one for sure years ago. In the past I bought it in Seattle at Pike Place and then after trying it I bought a case on Amazon. This weekend I might head out on the hunt and can let you know what I find. There's also a Filipina market on Kingsway and Fraser I think that I saw it in, but that was a year ago too.  


      Yes Phil, such a killer addition to wings. Most of the local brands are 3 crab, 5 crab, or Lucky, and to be honest they do in a pinch, but... yeah, there are better ones around that don't make it to Canada. Save for Red Boat which is decent.  


      Quick tidbit about a question nobody asked: Thai fish sauce is lighter and milder than Viet fish sauce. 


      Tidbit #2: having explored Vietnam one thing is abundantly clear... they treat fish sauce like the French treat wine. Locals think their regional sauce is the best, and there are definite flavour profile changes if you sample from 1 to the next. Oh, and none of the good stuff is exported, so in that sense it's even stingier than French wine.  


      Newbie: hit me with a deep fried fish head and a bowl of rice, or pluck the crispy meat off and place it on a reduced fish broth with all the fixins and I'm down.

      you never know where you might find little food gems. I remember I bought a bag of broken rice in a tiny market in Saskatoon, probably 20 years ago and I still remember how good it was.

      Tiny markets are where it's at. Always the first thing I hit in a new city/town/villiage, and if I won the lottery I'd hit as many as I could eating all along the way.

  2. Hey, butthead, you said the Habs fluked out and didn't deserve to be in the Finals. I said they did deserve to be there based on goaltending and defensive play. What's so hard about this? Hey, keep dredging up old $&!# if it makes you feel better though.
  3. Most unfair assessment ever. Doesn't matter what happens in the Finals as the Habs D shut the hell down for 3 rounds with Price [mostly] picking up the slack combining with just enough offense to win out. They deserve to be where they are more than the losers that lost to them.

    Bathroom tiles and sink are hot to the touch.  


    Why did I move into the top floor of a greenhouse a year ago.

      Ah but in the winter, you will be the one laughing!:P


      (sorry friend, that's all I got at the moment while sweating to death at 5AM in the morning).

  5. Canadian team in the Finals and a Mon Wed Fri Mon Wed Fri schedule.  


    Imagine no Saturday night Finals games. 


    Bush league.

      Oh, I guess there will be no champagne drinking on Saturday. That's kind of a bummer.

      And 5PM starts for those of us on the west coast. I can't even watch a single game in its entirety live.

  6. Don't you just hate it when you're about to make dashi but are out of kombu and bonito flakes? At least the NHL had some sense to headline us today; that should calm me down.
  7. Call me crazy, but I think anonymity has a role to play regarding some of the vitriol 'round this joint, and I honestly don't belive that the kind of people that would show up to a potluck meet and greet would also go out of their way to remain being dicjs. At least, not many of them.
  8. A CDC cookup/potluck has always been something I wanted to do.
  9. onion garlic sautéed in olive oil until translucent add best quality ground beef you can buy, brown and smash with a potato masher or side of spatula to bust em all up while they release their juices once half way browned, add dried basil, oregano, and your favourite chili flakes (if using fresh herbs wait until later when pasta is being mixed with the sauce) [I also add a few anchovy fillets or some dashes of Vietnamese fish sauce if I don't feel like opening a new jar of fish... tonight was Red Boat fish sauce] squish some San Marza
  10. It's an unfunny situation that has him off the team right now. After years of hope and support I was looking forward to him being off the team this offseason, but not like this.
  11. Sorry Deb. Also, it was fantastic. Double also, pesto chicken sandwiches sound pretty fantastic.
  12. You're right, I should. I feel like I don't have time for this community these days, but I have fun every time I arrive here. If I do post there I'll try to make all the food extra bad-boyable just for you. And yeah, i made enough for leftovers, but the bolognese was so delicious with basil, garlic, sweet San Marzano tomatoes, Aleppo pepper, Reggiano, and al dente pasta that I ate it all with no regrets.
  13. Was there a certain # of games he had to play this year to require protection? Or was it a forgone conclusion cause it's year 3.
