The House of William and Merry

If you’re looking to expand your pallet a bit The House of William and Merry is the place to do it.  Last week I stopped in there and had three items that I had never had before.  They were all knock out good.  What were they you say, well how about Marlin, Octopus, and Foie gras or duck liver.  Yeah, when you were like, “MMM whats that a pick of” that was the duck liver featured above.  All three dishes were amazing.  The portions were smaller but the flavor was huge.  William and Merry are a husband and wife duo that is making amazing food in Delaware.   I don’t know how I have never been there before, but I will definitely be making a trip back in the near future.  They racking in awards, and I am sure their Zagat rating will only continue to climb.  Thanks for sharing your amazing food with the world.  I could go on and on about the experience that night but in reality, you just need to get up there and try it for your self.

Frankie and the Dumpling

So after  very short hiatus the Freak contacted me to tell me that he is doing a dumplin eating contest in Philadelphia at Sang Keen Noodle House.  He will be hanging with some of his buddies from wing bowl like Shittsburgh I mean  Pittsburgh PaulieDave Brunelli, and for the love of god Heather Cahill.  Go ahead click that link, you won’t be disappointed.   The gist of the competition is to finish 58 Dumplings (48 for women) in 45 minutes, and your meal is on Sangkee, plus receive a $88 Sangkee Gift Card.  So basically no chewing, just swallowing.  My pick is on a certain contender that I believe can swallow all day, yup Pittsburgh Paulie.  You sly fuckers, I know what you were going to say.   It’s almost dumplin time.Continue Reading

Frankie “The Freak” Paul vs Wing Bowl (Update)

The anticipation is building around the single greatest eating event ever, WING BOWL.  Frankie Paul sits and trains in and out of the ring.  He gets in the EAT LAB and works on his food game.  Shit, he ain’t eating chicken wing he eats Falcon wings that he caught with own bare hands.  He is what Rocky wanted to be.
