Catch Javier Plascencia on The Taste tonight. In the meantime, here's my story about a visit to the set last year. 
Last fall, I received an invitation to visit The Taste. If you're not familiar with the reality TV show, it's where contestants of all walks of life compete on a cooking-reality show for a monetary...

"Don't sleep with your hair wet or you'll go blind." "You have carpal tunnel syndrome because you wash your hands in cold water." "Don't eat uncooked rice or your stomach will explode." As ridiculo...

I've eaten Ethiopian and Middle Eastern food with my hands but never with Filipino food. You can do that at  Villa Manila's Kamayan Night in National City. What you need to know. http://zagat.bz/1sBTUVx
Put aside all your preconceived notions about proper utensils and add Villa Manila’s Kamayan Night to your bucket list. Every Thursday, Villa Manila in National City hosts an evening where your hands are your utensils. For the uninitiated and unfamiliar with the practice, it can be ...

What's the max you would pay for a milkshake? How about one that's $19.99 with edible gold flakes? 
How do you feel about a $19.99 milkshake? At ShakeAway, the world’s largest milkshake bar franchise, you can sip one and decide for yourself. The U.K.-based chain has recently opened two local shops in La Jolla and Pacific Beach. ShakeAway prides itself on stocking 180…

This was cathartic. 
With the holidays here, I meant for today to be roundup of my Thanksgiving meal. Like a good food blogger (which I haven’t been these last few months), I planned for pulled turkey tacos, corn salsa...

Here's another trend I fully support: food flights with a coffee flight thrown in for food measure. http://zagat.bz/XDdsgd
Wine and beer flights are nothing new in the bar world, where samples are often served up for comparison. Lately, we’ve been spotting flights around the county that aren't reserved just for drinks — food is also hopping onto the trend in some sensational ways. Looking for a flight of ...

If you need a gut buster, look no further than Devine Pastabilities' "Torpasta" http://zagat.bz/1oi3lDg
Point Loma’s Devine Pastabilities has made a name for itself for their "torpastas," sesame-seeded Italian rolls filled with pasta. But carb-upon-carb creations aren't new to us. We still carry a flame for Craft & Commerce’s grilled mac 'n cheese sandwich but these torpedo-stuffed rolls ...

The massive monster that is San Diego Comic-Con is over. It was a weird year and I tried to capture food moments. Read about a few of them here. 
More than 130,000 pop-culture fans descended onto downtown San Diego from Wednesday through the event's Sunday evening finalé. While the main focus at San Diego Comic-Con was everything from movies to gaming to comics and art, zany culinary moments were happening all…
