Food Trucks

Have just watched ‘Chef’ with Jon Favreau and what a treat it was! If you enjoy food shows and eating then this is for you.

Was interesting to see that the movie was produced by Roy Choi, owner of Kogi food trucks on the west coast serving Korean/Mexican fusion! Check out the website Kogi BBQ.

We were lucky enough to sample the food last year in L.A. during a visit to Venice Beach. Below are pictures of a hot dog covered in Kim Chi. TASTE SENSATION!

I guess we are going to have to go back next summer….damn!

Best Burger in Tianjin…

This weekend we happened to meet the owner of one of our favourite restaurants, TJ Tex Mex. He said have you tried the burger? We love burgers but it was an obvious ‘no’ as we go to this place for Mexican food, not burgers. He claimed the burgers were outstanding. As we thought about it we couldn’t think of an outstanding burger here in Tianjin so we of course had to try it out. We popped into Joy City after work today and took the plunge.  We can confirm it is an amazing burger, a very close rival to the Great Leap burger in Beijing. Good ingredients all around but the meat spoke for itself, it was juicy, well seasoned and cooked perfectly. Hot, crisp and salty fries on the side, it was as if we were sitting in a diner back in the states. 55 rmb for this tasty, treat.  Tianjiners – go check it out.
