Roasted Broccoli With Shichimi Togarashi

Are people bored of broccoli? Or is broccoli boring? I don’t hear people getting excited about broccoli. I’m definitely guilty of over looking it every time I’m at the farmers market…going for more the super seasonal vegetables. But after eating so much fried chicken at the Fried Chicken Club meeting, I had a super strong craving for broccoli. I’m not sure why I had the craving……but I ended up buying couple heads of broccoli at the farmers market.

I love chicken and broccoli and my mom usually stir fries it with garlic but I wanted to try something different. So in spite of the heat, I roasted the broccoli.

Fried Chicken Club, The First Meeting

On Saturday, I met up with Summer, Sydney, Sydney’s husband, and few of Sydney’s friends for the very first Fried Chicken Club meeting at The Drink in Williamsburg.

So what’s the deal with Fried Chicken Club? It’s pretty simple. Bring any sort of fried chicken (chicken fingers, Korean wings, nuggets, fancy or cheap, sandwiches) to share with other people. We did really well for our first meeting. A nice variety of fried chickens.

Soft Shell Crab Sandwich

I’m not really a big crab person. It’s not that I hate crab but it’s just too much work for that little meat. Haha, yeah I’m lazy. When I was a kid, my mom would simply boil shrimp with the shell on and serve it with soy sauce. I refused to eat it because I didn’t want to peel the shrimp. Or maybe I was smart cause she ended up peeling the shrimp for me. Heh.

I do like the taste of crab, so when it’s soft shell crab season, I make sure to stock up. It’s pretty easy and quick to cook them. I usually fry it in butter and serve it with whatever seasonal vegetables I just happened to have. BUT this time, I made a soft shell crab sandwich because I finally got my hands on some King’s Hawaiian bun. Last time I checked, about 2 years ago, the closest place to buy King’s Hawaiian bread was in New Jersey. I found these in Pathmark in Gowanus.

A Taste of Home

After taking my first bite of this homemade pho by Lily’s mom, I turned to Anh and said…”that’s it, I can’t eat any other pho.”

When people say, “oh this was made with love…” yeah, I totally tasted love in this bowl of pho and also time and also mad skills. I finished the whole bowl and drank all the broth. Super deep flavors that I have never tasted in any pho I have had in NYC.

We were lucky enough to get invited by Sydney to join her at her friend’s mom’s pho pop-up at Ramen Lab.

Breakfast Sandwich Crawl

Another successful food crawl, done. Back in April, we did a hot dog and tater tots crawl through Williamsburg. For June (sorry, we skipped May), I decided to do a breakfast sandwich crawl cause who doesn’t love breakfast sandwiches? Also, I was pretty proud of myself. I was able to convince a bunch of food writers/bloggers/photographers that were all in town for the Saveur Blog Awards to trek out to Red Hook. Hello! There was like a dozen of us all crowding into Defonte’s.

Ah, good old potatoes and eggs with mozz and ketchup sandwich to start the crawl at Defonte’s of Brooklyn.
