Food in Mouth

Remembering back to summer vacation

After two months of being a parent, I can say that it doesn't get any easier! The food blogging pretty much has stopped but it's nice to take ten minutes to write something down, and to look at pictures of food from last summer. We took the time to chill out in France at my in-laws and take it easy when wifey was only a few months pregnant. Vacation does have one thing in common with parenthood of an infant, and it's that the days blend together. Today, it's hard for me to know day 45 from day 50 of my son's life. The fragmented sleep does a number to my ability to remember the days.... [Continue reading]

It is hard to food blog with a newborn

I am a dad now! It's only been about a month, and it's as surreal to write that now was it was when my son first came into the world. Being parents to a newborn is fucking hard. That's the part in the fine print of the parent instruction manual that probably isn't as talked about. Eating out at restaurants has taken a backseat to keeping a tiny human alive. So essentially my son has become cockblock to foodinmouth! So inconsiderate!... [Continue reading]

More food courts in NYC is fine by me

For the food loving couple that's hobbled by the exclamation of, "I'm getting too old for this," there's some usefulness in food courts. I have to explain to wifey that fancy NYC food courts are very different from those that exist in malls all over America. Of course if you also have limitations of funds and possess a lack of desire to switch subway lines multiple times, certain things begin to appear more desirable than others. It's no coincidence that we've gone to Hudson Eats at Brookfield Place multiple times. It's cheap compared to a sit-down restaurant and it's a no-fuss destination. It's nice that you also get good views of the new Freedom Tower too.... [Continue reading]

Doughnut Vault in Chicago

When the semester cycles to an end, my brain basically cannot fit everything all in, and that's why the blog has really suffered. My plan for the blog is to redo some of the tech involved in the blog in January of 2016 and hopefully make it easier for me to tie in things like twitter, facebook, and instagram. Because sitting down to write is quite time consuming and after years of blogging, I know that my skills aren't creeping closer to Shakespeare. But it's difficult to let the blog go because it's played such an important role in my life. This blog brought me wifey, for which I'll be eternally grateful. And wifey is expecting a son in 2016. Inside, I still feel thirteen-years-old, but life for a thirty-three-year-old brings interesting things, and even though I complain and whine more than the average person, life holds more blessings than I can count. So we'll close out 2015 with a post about Chicago...... [Continue reading]

A familiar taste of dim sum

The other day wifey and I woke up at 3 am and took the train into the city. Weather had not yet turned cold. It wasn't the kind of wind that would dry out your skin. But waiting for a train at that time of the night, and then walking on the sidewalks of New York made me feel like a tourist, like some outsider. People walked around, ready to end their night at 4 am, not knowing where they had parked their cars. Maybe I'm the one who overstayed the welcome in New York. But one thing that always makes me feel right at home is some dim sum. It had been a long time since we had gone to Nom Wah Tea Parlor, and it seemed like a great time to go back....
