Ronin's Food Pics Thread - EdEats.com
 
Oh, hello there...this is an entire thread for me to post some culinary bow-chicka-wow-wowwwww from my food blog, EdEats.com

So I've split the old thread into two since that contest has been over for a long time now. Thank you so much for everything during the competition, REVscene. You can see all the old posts here: http://www.revscene.net/forums/68664...-everyone.html

If Brent (owner) is there, tell him how you found the restaurant on my blog. He'd get a kick out of it. Super nice guy. He might not remember...he had like 20 other bloggers to talk to that night but he'd appreciate that the media invite got him at least one customer. :lol

The steak is good. The coq au vin is good as well. The lasagna is okay and is large enough to feed three. Not kidding. The other one that I've heard is good is the pulled pork sandwich. Haven't tried so I don't know that last one.

In case you have no idea what I'm on about: Catch 122

The latest: Sidecut Modern Steak – Whistler, BC

Longest post I've written, I think. Almost 3k words, 25+ pics. Epic meal. As good as Black+Blue in Vancouver if not better.

I think I'm gonna plan a super mini-Whistler getaway to eat this again, the first time was pure awesome and did not disappoint! I'll need to stay 1 night there to digest and drink haha ...

Ronin 06-25-2012 03:23 AM

Thanks!

Slept all afternoon after playing soccer so I'm wide awake now. Thought I'd show you guys a little preview of tomorrow's post for those of you not following on Facebook.

My girlfriend is the manager at Catch 122 - pulled pork sandwich is really good! I'd also recommend the cajun chicken sandwich.

Interesting rebuttal to a valid argument.

It is suppose to appeal to tourist, right? Tourists to Richmond? If I was spend a week in Richmond....or even if I had a layover at YVR for 5-6 hours, I would think about going to a Farmer's Market and buying some locally produced food for a picnic, etc.

Think about...grab some great fresh items and go and watch the planes land...or have a picnic at Minoru Park...or at a table along the river in Steveston...sounds good to me.

Those things aren't as fun as getting real food in Richmond. If I'm going to watch planes or something, I'm getting takeout from HK BBQ Master or something.

The best reason to do the bread, meat and cheese thing is because damned near every farm in the French or Italian countryside is going to be making just silly amazing things for a few euros. Many bakeries and cheese shops in Paris are decades or centuries old...and more importantly, buying artisan quality things like that cost next to nothing compared to dining at a restaurant. I've done it. My friends and I probably survived an entire week off nothing but baguettes and various cured meats and sausages while we backpacked in France. You can get great stuff anywhere. Of course there will be those places that have a thousand years or whatever of tradition that have lineups and high prices but you can go into just about any bakery that isn't some kind of franchise and they'll be little family owned operations baking fresh daily or a butcher that curates a collection of a hundred different hams.

Here is the exact opposite. You can get a delicious meal at a sit down restaurant for peanuts while if you search for a "special" bread or proscuitto or brie around here...well, most cured meats and fine cheeses are imported and expensive. There aren't many fresh breadmakers apart from Cobs. For example, a loaf of bread at that Romania Country Bread place in Steveston is $11!

...the same price as a rib eye steak, a pork chop, spaghetti, veggies, soup and a drink with tax and tip at a HK style cafe. :fullofwin:

I f'n LOVE proscuitto, crusty bread, mustard and just about any cheese but we don't live in Provence or Tuscany. To me, those things aren't interesting enough by themselves here...and by that I mean, I'll still eat them but I don't know what I'd write about.

I live in the lower mainland and I avoid Richmond like the plague, shitty drivers, horrible traffic and the "honger" lifestyle just isn't my thing. I only venture into Richmond to go to YVR. All I will say is this, reading this girls blog does not make me want to visit Richmond 1 bit, but reading Ronin's blog and his photos kinda makes me want to consider venturing into Richmond despite my hatred for Richmond to try some of those restaurants he's reviewed there.

Thanks! LOL it's not that bad here. I find it's more parking than driving.

I've been getting quite fancy pants with the food lately like expensive steaks and fois gras sushi but I'm going old school with tomorrow's post.

http://ededition.com/blogpics/hingloon-4.jpg

One of the dishes that reminds me most of my childhood. I remember always ordering minced beef on rice at Maxim's in Chinatown growing up. Sometimes I'd get the "Western style", which was more of a tomato base rather than soy and corn starch.

Also, the first of a few Seattle restaurants I've got on deck. One of the better Chinese restaurants in Seattle.

Culverin 06-30-2012 03:22 AM

7seven, if you are a foodie, by skipping Richmond, you are seriously missing out.
However, if not for the food, what's the point? :p

I don't get why everybody is complaining.
It's a food journey. It's not like she's not talking about the foods and atmosphere of what she's discovering.
I expect it to it to get better.

Jer3 06-30-2012 12:57 PM

a few things for certain in just a few posts. she loves takeout, picnics, riding her bike and living the hippy gregor robertson envisioned life.

Anyone try the new Crawfish place on Main and Broadway?

carisear 07-05-2012 06:12 PM

I showed the gf this 365days blog, and then i showed edeats and 604 foodtography right after ... she's like 'wtf, the difference is SO large it's not even a fair comparison'

no vested interest, no bias, she just looked at those blogs and it wasn't even close whose blogs she would rather look at.

guess which ones got bookmarked, and which one didn't!

Oooh there's a new Crawfish place?... if it's anything like the Richmond store ... :denied:
I don't want to be the labrat again (what a waste of a dinner at Crawfish King Richmond), somebody else go and report back? :considered:
