Tabla Ibérica

The Tabla Ibérica represents a classic dish from Spain. It features meats and cheeses that are all delicious on their own. Together, they’re a culinary delight. Here’s an example I enjoyed recently:

Wow, what a feed! Fortunately, this was shared with other people as part of a great meal. If there’s one thing the Spanish have mastered, it is cured meats. Enjoy this with a favorite wine and you’re good to go. Tan bueno!

Racks of Ribs

Attending the West Chester Food Fair (Pennsylvania) is always lots of fun, not to mention a culinary delight. While ambling down the street, I came up on these racks of ribs on the smoker.

That is quite a pile of smoked goodness there. Roamed about for two hours sampling all kinds of food. Was a great time. Enjoy every meal.

The Apple Pan

Big cities always have their quaint and cool joints. In Los Angeles, I found The Apple Pan, which is no secret. Still, having a burger at a joint that is throwback to maybe 50 years ago was fun and tasty.

The place is easy to find on Pico Blvd, with a few parking spots behind and more on the street. Inside you’ll find a counter staff by friendly guys who sling burgers, fries, and slices of dessert with amazing speed. I went with the hickory burger and fries. Check them out:

Kind of cool the way the burger comes in that paper wrap. Keeps the mess off your shirt, too. By the way, those fries are very tasty. Great potato flavor! Will be back here to try some more items. Enjoy every meal.

Big Shake’s, Franklin, TN

In my pursuit for fantastic local joints, I stopped at Big Shake’s, Franklin, Tennessee.

The cry baby heat comes as a sort of after taste, just enough to tickle those receptors. As for the regular fried chicken, it was juicy and good. Next time, I’ll move up the heat ladder; see what happens. Enjoy every meal.
