LOBSTER, LOBSTA, LOBSTAH!!! @ New England Lobster Market & Eatery

$54.90 (3 orders + tax + Beverage)

I was up in south-ish San Francisco for the company I work for quarterly meeting and sales kick off event.  After the presentation a few of us broke off from the lunch provided to indulge in some tasty sea food.  So we went to the New England Lobster Market & Eatery as it was 5 min walk from the hotel.  I ended up ordering three menu items, I thought if I was going to try this place out I'd get the three main staples.  I got the Twin Tails, which are just two lobster tails, butter, coleslaw and a half roll (which its the same roll that you get when you order a lobster roll).  The second item was the lobster roll, dressed, which also comes with coleslaw and chips(made in house).  The third item was the lobster corn chowder.  

All the items had plenty of lobster, which were delicious, and the place is set up with picnic tables both inside and out for seating and has a unique atmosphere.  Also, they have a separate area for their clams and oysters, and by the time we finished all of our food, we didn't have the room to sample any the 4-5 varieties of the oysters they had on hand.

The only complaint I had was that the lobster roll.  The roll has a few options and the first is "lobster roll, dressed",  which didn't have a lot of dressing or spices which I would expect for a lobster type "salad" roll I was expecting. So I suppose it isn't realy a complaint as it just wasn't what I was expecting, it was still delicious, there was so much lobster meat I took a bunch and put it into the delicious chowder!

The other complaint was with the chowder, which was pretty tasty, everything in it was delicious except for one thing, the corn.  Either the corn used was over cooked or was just old as it was very "mealy" and "chewy" rather than crunchy/fresh like corn on the cob, etc., but because the rest of the chowder was so tasty I ate ever last bit!

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
