Where gourmands come to meet/eat.
Welcome to the Gourmand!
This is a community for people who know what good food tastes like, but aren't above eating a hot dog or burger. ...Especially if that hot dog is wrapped in smoked, artisan bacon and that burger is made of kobe beef ;D

reviewed Jagermeister Spice. January 05
posted in Gourmand
Dear god, is there another alcoholic blend that screams "douchebro" any louder than the Jager Bomb? A shot of a German whiskey known as Jagermeister placed into a small glass of Red Bull? It's best known as one of those get-this-party-started cappers, or something to suck down when you're in a celebratory mood. While people don't consider the essential component of the Jager Bomb - the Jagermeister …

Mike and Ike Red Rageous
Mike and Ike can hardly be classified as some kind of gourmet food, even by the standards of impulse section store candy. Hell, they're basically nothing more than streamlined jellybeans. Throw a shitload of sugar into a furnace somewhere, remove it in gooey bite-sized chunks, mold them into tube shapes, and inject them full of fruit juice and there we are! Mike and Ike, everybody! And to set the …

Snickers®
Along with Butterfingers and Milky Ways, the Snickers bar is another one of my favorite candy bars.  The combination of peanuts, caramel, nougat, and chocolate make this really tasty and pretty filling.      Snickers is another reason why among the candy giants, Mars is my favorite.

Hamburgers
If your bog standard of a good hamburger involves McDonald's or Burger King, you don't know the first thing about a good burger. This dish is a national classic, and those who insist on getting fast food junk as their excuses of burgers are doing for the food the same kind of thing Kenny G does for jazz: Removing all the original elements from it and dumbing it down, thus robbing it of a lot …

Kaka Udon Kitchen
Despite the weird name, this is a very cozy place to get sushi, Japanese cuisine and sake. Granted the Menu is not as expanded as those ones that I have frequented but the quality is pretty good. If you look at it from the outside, it looks like a hole in the wall place, but the inside of the restaurant is pretty cool. Yeah, it is a little small and only seats about 25-35 people (not including the …

Opaque Restaurant
A restaurant where the experience is much more intriguing than the food; the theory is when there are no lights, the sense of sight takes a break so your other senses can take over.      I went here with my friend, and while she kept saying that she is enjoying herself, the experience in a pitch black area is freaking her out. Opaque is the restaurant where you have your dinner …

French Toast
Of all the breakfast dishes available, French toast is my favorite.  I find it really satiating and tasty.  When served with maple syrup and butter on top with a side of bacon and a glass of orange juice, it's the perfect meal to start your day.

Tong Palace
I say don't bother with this place unless you are really hungry and on a budget. We checked this place out because we wanted to do a little restaurant adventure. Place looked nice from the outside, but looks more like a hole in the wall in the inside.      Roast Pork looked like its been on the heating lamp for a few days.   Dimsum was alright but not that tasty.   …

Avocado
Avocado is probably my favorite fruit, because of the fact that despite being a fruit, it's an excellent ingredient in so many savory dishes.  My favorite use of the avocado is for making guacamole, which is a perfect thing to go with meats like chicken or steak, and of course, as the ideal dip for tortilla chips.

Cookies and Cream Ice-cream
Ever since I first ate this type of ice cream back in the early 90's, it's become one of my absolute favorite varieties of ice cream.  Who would have thought that mixing broken up Oreo cookies into ice cream would make such an appealing dessert?

Buffalo wings
One of my absolute favorite "dipping" foods.  I don't know what it is, but the combination of crispy chicken wings, hot sauce, and ranch dressing (others prefer blue cheese, but I don't like the stuff at all) just screams "perfect."  I prefer my wings "naked," since I think breading can give wings an unsavory, soggy texture that makes it more …

This one thing that I can never stay away from for long. But it is true, that it makes clothes go smaller.

Pizza
I know I'll piss off some people who only like fancy-pants food that's small, dainty, and overpriced, but I think pizza is among the finest contributions in the culinary world.  There's noting quite like a thin crust pizza with pepperoni and jalapenos on it, with a close second being a stuffed crust with pepperoni and bacon.      My favorite pizza chains are Pizza …

posted in Dining Out
Taco Bell
The quesadillas and side nachos aren't bad, and the Mountain Dew Baja Blast is a neat drink, but the rest of the food at Taco Bell is just mediocre.  Personally, I'd much rather go to a reputable Mexican restaurant instead like La Quesadilla and Mi Ranchito (Mexican restaurants in Northwest Indiana).
posted a Quick Tip about Hot Chocolate. November 20, 2012
posted in WHAT CAN I SAY?
I don't think there's anything that can beat out hot chocolate as the perfect fall and wintertime beverage that isn't alcoholic.  Personally, I prefer my hot chocolate with cayenne pepper sprinkled in it, as I think the heat enhances the sweetness of the chocolate.

Butterfinger
Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger!!      The only bad thing I can say about Butterfinger bars is that they're extremely brittle, so be careful with them when you buy them.  The proportions of chocolate and the crispy, peanut butter flakey center are perfect, and the ideal chocolate "pick me up" during your day.

The food isn't good for you, but it's painfully addictive. They have a very good dollar menu.

Pepsi Next
I was a little thrown off the first time I laid eyes on Pepsi Next. It came to my attention while I was in Saint Louis, and so my first, incredulous reaction was to turn to Kevin (my friend who I was there to visit) and ask "Did Pepsi learn nothing from the whole New Coke fiasco?"      "That was my first thought too. It's New Coke all over again," Kevin …

Serendipity 3
This may be worth going to New York (again) for! I mean a $ 69 footlong on a pretzel bun and has been confirmed as the most expensive hotdog on the planet! I love hotdogs so I'll have to try this next time I am in the Big Apple....      see link: http://screen.yahoo.com/the-world-s-most-exp...e-hot-dog-28868709.html;_ylt=Aop8lHZbnMSnx083cJbVCqpZc0Iv;_ylu=X3oDMTJkcGdvZHQwBG1pdANVUFAgUmVsYXRlZCB …
