Redneck BBQ Lab

So, yeah, BBQ is the way to go when you’re that hungry and demand quality. I’ve head the pleasure of enjoying the Redneck BBQ Lab on four separate occasions now. It’s always fantastic. Here’s a short video of them racking up some ribs.

And here’s a video made with my Osmo Pocket Camera showing the platter.

That’s a half rack by the way. Next time, I’m going all in for the full rack. Worth every bite.

Snack stand, Pompeii

As mentioned, Pompeii featured all the conveniences one might expect to find in a modern town. Here’s a photo of a typical snack stand (my term) found in almost every street around the town.

There’s a bar with the holes over which warm food could be served. There’s even a cutout in the bar to serve what I believe was “take out” food. I can imagine people stopping in here for something to eat, a friendly chat, and then going on with their day. I wonder what was everyone’s favorite snack.

Cantina dei Papi, Rome

Cantina dei Papi has a few locations in Rome. I stopped in to the one in the Trastevere neighborhood for a snack while in the city.

El Bernardino, Segovia, return…

I’ve been to El Bernardino in Segovia, Spain, many times. It’s a popular restaurant, but don’t let that bother you. Simply go a little earlier than the usual meal time. You’ll have a seat, great service, and darn good food.

DSC_2897Of course, they do a delicious cochinillo here, have a great wine list, but don’t miss the ponche segoviano dessert seen below:

IMG_1841The dessert is worth a stop here. I did mention the wine, and here’s a tasty bottle you can find most anywhere.

IMG_1840The albariƱo wine goes with many things. Enjoy every meal. Take your time, too!
