Re: “Observations on the feeling of the beautiful and sublime doughnut

You and the Prof are stuck in Plato's donut cave. A trip to Old Fashioned Donuts in Roseland seriously is in order. (Dat's is also very fine.)

Re: “Romance's final frontier smells of oil

I don't get the "romance" angle for fondue. It is fun for kids; I was a kid in the 1970s, when fondue truly was all the rage in America, and I loved it. We had fondue about once a month at home until I was maybe 15 years old. We had fun as a family doing that, but I don't need a craft project involving dangerous boiling oil when I am on a date with my wife.

Re: “The Polish Al Pastor and Other Slavic Fast Food Finds

Mike, I stumbled upon Royal Kebab today without having seen this report, and while I'm upset not to have been the original discoverer, I was absolutely thrilled and amazed by the food here. The pork on "middle eastern" bread, with both hot sauce and garlic sauce, was just fantastic. And yes, I noticed the corn in there ... and I liked it! Next time I might go for the pork "platter," skipping the bread. Although the bread was very good, with a crisp crust and nice crumb, it tended to fall apart to the point where I wound up eating it with a fork, anyway.
