All You Can Eat Lunch @ Beque Korean Grill (Kevin's Going Away Lunch)

$25.00 ish (tax+tip included)

This is one of those places where you cook your own meal, which i'm not a big fan of, that is to say I normally don't go out for a meal where I have to cook my own meal.  If I'm going to have to cook I might as well go shopping and will typically make a better meal for cheaper, and much tastier!  However there are times I can be dragged along.  :D  Like a free lunch for a intern who is leaving to go back to school.  

Anywho, Beque is your typical styled place, large table, cooker in the center, meat and veggies pilled around to grill on the center broiler, followed by a plethora of sauces, except this place only gives you two sauces, and they're not very impressive.  The sauces they give are salt/pepper/oil mixed, and another special dipping sauce for the pork bellies that seems like ginger, bean paste, seasonings, and a tad spicy, that is ok on hot que'd meat.  There wasn't even soy sauce to add.  With most Korean establishments they do give you a plethora of side dishes that are also endless, with various items, like glass noodles, marinated potatos, kimchi, etc.

After a few of the charred and que'd pork bellies, and a few of the thin sliced beef, I was becoming very disappointed, and almost removed a star, as even with the sauces there wasn't much more than the various "meat" flavors, no zing, but the saving grace was the Bulgogi. Specifically the very spicy Bulgogi!

This meat,the bulgogi, in the 2nd pic above to the right, while arriving at the table looking like something pulled off the slaughter room floor, and even when cooked almost resembling philly cheese steak before the cheese is added, the taste is very, very, good, tender (if done correctly), succulent, and oh my, spicy!  You see this meat is marinated in the "house sauce" and is one of the "all you can eat" options.  You can get a non spicy version too, but I don't see why you would.

With that said, I wouldn't go out of my way to go here however, especially when I'm at work, as there is a similar place near work.  They have lunch special for 9.99 with enough food and plenty of sauces, costs 15-17 with a drink and including tip.  

The staff at Beque, was very attentive in almost every respect, that is except for when it came time for the bill. We had to ask a few times, and then ended up just going to the register because we were under a bit of a time crunch.

2am Chili - How To Make Chili "Like A Boss"

Over on the reddit  user tylercap  posted his recipe for Chili, "Like A Boss" that he likes to make at 2am between sessions of Black Ops.  However unlike the traditional listing of ingredients in a 3x5 index card format or video of the process tylercap decided to post pics along with some stick figures showing the process.  Also if you're unfamiliar with the meme "Like a Boss" check out the bottom of the post for the youtube clip from Andy Samberg of SNL and thelonlyisland . nsfw language and imagery for both chili and "like a boss" video after the jump.

POPUP SHOP - Modo Mochi Donut @ Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose

$20 for a dozen!!! (other food, and tax/tip not included) People have lost their damn minds once again in the "craze" of these Hawaiian Mochi Donuts!  We arrived after lunch at the Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Jose off Saratoga Ave.  The line was out the door! My friends got in line, I went in to scope out how long it would be.   I passed the automatic doors and saw the line twisted to and fro, back and forth, amongst various food stands and displays.  I inquired the length of time people were waiting, 2-3 hrs was the wait time.   OMG! No frick'n way!!!   No pastry was worth that wait!Luckily, my friend came in to see the line size and saw their sister in law and was able to snag a few to share with us! Thanks CHAN!  The max you could get for one person was a dozen for $20.    Now don't get me wrong, the donuts were very tasty and had that slight chewiness of fresh pastries combined with mochi, but they weren't mind blowing crazy go
