Oh and Chili con Queso...found where??? Homesick Texan, of course! My favorite all time chili con queso is from Los Tios in Houston. But they changed the recipe not long ago...even though they lie and say they haven't! We know, you idiots! The legions are not stupid! That chili con queso is probably what stunted my growth! I know I was destined to be 5'10", but no! I had to order the No. 8 combo plate since the age of three...2 puffy quesos and a cheese enchilada covered in gravy. Oh god I miss Tex-Mex! El Paso turns it's collective nose up to Tex-Mex. Oh and also the queso at Club No Minors...aka El Patio in Houston is fantastic...and that's not the booze talking. I used to eat it as a child too...and I didn't drink then, swear! You have to click on the Club No Minors link just to listen to the music...now close your eyes and pretend your drinking a margarita laced with Everclear and a drunk frat boy is hitting on you! That's Club No Minors! They sayyyy that they don't use everclear here...but they lie too!
I'm also craving Chef Bobby Griffing's FRIED AND TRUFFLED MAC AND CHEESE BALLS!! hint hint. Unfortunately I don't have a photo of this since I haven't had it in frigging ages!
And finally I'm craving the Fettuccine Carbonara that my friend Chef Damian Mandola used to make...before he became a celebrity.
I'm a chef name dropper...so sue me...I'm hungry!
Off to drink my last fucking Slimfast for the day.
