Oh my God. I’m so embarrassed. I fixed it. Stupid almost-engineering-switched-to-English degree!!! Read more

Hi, all. Fixed the link. Sorry about that! I think I get another week or so before I’m not “new on the job” anymore.

It’s so scary! Mushrooms are one of my favorite foods and I hate that my love for them may actually kill me.

Right? I believe the last time around it was 10k out of 14k total locations had it, but still. 4k restaurants is a lot to not have it.

I love Arby’s. There should have been Horsey and Arby’s sauce in there. But — the kicker is Chicago doesn’t really have them except for two very strange locations downtown (one in a train station, the other downtown in an office area which is desolate now).

Hello! Thank you! It’s been a really interesting (almost) two weeks. So you get to see me in a much higher volume. And maybe even shared on the Internet. I’m so glad you found me here.

My usual go-to is this kind that roughly translates to Grandma’s Handmade Kimchi that we get from a Korean supermarket nearby. The other one we like, I forget the label of, which makes this comment completely useless. Apparently Tobagi is supposed to be good too, but I have not seen that at our store.

Oh. And I’ll keep my eye out for dogs up in Wisconsin too, once this mess is all over. Fiancee is from there and I didn’t know the hot dogs were good up there since I usually swap to brats on hard rolls in her neck of the woods!
