Re: “Sausage Party: Cleveland, Ohio's Polish Boy Comes to Cleveland Park

I think I know what I am doing ifor dinner! Thanks Jack! You know how much I love Cleveland, and all its grit and glory! I haven't been up there for months (don't love the winter there). BUT, I don't have to go far, just over the river to Cleveland Park to get me a Polish Boy!

I'd just about kill for some fresh bratwurst simmered in beer and finished on the grill on a wheat brat bun with brown mustard, sauteed onion & sauerkraut.

One of the worst things about Nashville is the near total absence of decent sausages. This is welcome

King Leo Candy also produced by Standard Candy Co. Their soft peppermint, lemon and clove candy sticks are a Christmas Staple and even Williams Sonoma uses them.

Re: “Sausage Party: Cleveland, Ohio's Polish Boy Comes to Cleveland Park

@37210: I know Slyman's is legendary, but I wasn't a huge fan. Only had it once or twice, many — as in 20 or more — years ago, so take that opinion with a grain of salt.

My favorite corned beef in Cleveland is at Jack's Deli, on Cedar near Green. Ever been? I prefer it to Corky's, though Corky' is good.

And Lesley, as someone who spent about 26 years of my life in Cleveland, I agree with you, mostly. On the one hand, there is a lot great about it. And there's a ton of great food. That said, the winters kicked my butt. And at times it could be feel like a frustrating place for music and creative types.

I always heard a rumor that the Jiffy-Pop popcorn was invented in Nashville in the basement of a house on Westwood Avenue off of Natchez Trace.

Re: “Swallow, Don't Spit: 'Oil Pulling' Is a Crime Against Food

RUBBISH! MY FIST WEEK OF OIL PULLING I SAW AMAZING RESULTS IN MY SKIN ALONE BUT I DID COUPLE IT WITH DRINKING LOTS OF WATER. I SMOKED FOR YEARS SO MY TEETH WERE A LITTLE DISCOLORED AND WEAK, RECENTLY I NOTICED MY GUMS NO LONGER BLEED WHEN I BRUSH OR ANYTHING. IF THIS ARTICLE IS ABOUT WASTING FOOD WE AS A NATION WASTE MORE THAN JUST FOOD ON THE DAILY SO WHAT POINT ARE YOU TRYING TO PROVE? DO NOT GET ME WRONG I RESPECT EVERYONES OPINIONS AND VIEWS I JUST BELIEVE THIS WAS A BIT FAR FETCHED TO SAY OIL-PULLING IS A WASTE. GREAT DAY EVERYONE!

Re: “12 South Bistro Turning Thai

Haha...Live down the street and we joked that was nail in the coffin when the freaky tube man started flying plus the guy they had down the street flipping a sign.. I think a good restaurant will do fine in this location...Can cater to us Edgehill/Music Row folks as well as the Gulch. Have gotten to the point that I don't go anywhere unless I can walk there.

I have never understood the disrespect for Cleveland. I used to travel there for work and I loved it. It's a great town. I had some great meals there and I loved The Flats.

Re: “Sausage Party: Cleveland, Ohio's Polish Boy Comes to Cleveland Park

I am a big fan of Seti's. But if we're really talking Cleveland...nothing beats a corned beef sandwich from Slyman's. I would even settle for a reuben from Corky & Lenny's.
Thanks for the tip...and thanks for reminding me to visit my in-laws.

Re: “Swallow, Don't Spit: 'Oil Pulling' Is a Crime Against Food

@ Lesley...
Saying something "doesn't work" with out even trying it seems a bit ignorant. I can understand why you wouldn't think oil could not be a cure all, end all but if you had done some research you would know that a lot of the essential ingredients of whatever oil you choose are absorbed into your bloodstream sublingualy as you swish.
Also, this practice isn't hundreds of years old, it's thousands. Not necessarily a fad but just made it's way over to America in 1992 and has been reintroduced.
Plenty of studies have been done that show scientific evidence that oil pulling can treat and cure many diseases of the mouth. For instance, a root canal of a person with ms or rheumatoid arthritis has been removed and implanted into a rabbit who then developed that disease proving that the disease was present in the tooth. So having a healthy mouth is essential to having a healthy body.
There aren't as many studies as to how it helps your body, but if you absorb it sublingualy, why wouldn't you get the same benefits as eating? You are in fact ingesting.
I noticed a HUGE difference the very first time I used it with my teeth and now my body craves the nutrients and it gives me energy.
Needless to say, don't knock it until you try it

Re: “12 South Bistro Turning Thai

Good food definitely trumps location. Plenty of restaurants have thrived in "bad" locations, Nashville and beyond. 12 South Bistro's problem was that there was absolutely nothing unique or interesting about its menu.

And while it's true that Nashville could use more/better Chinese food (Chinatown and Lucky Bamboo are steps in the right direction, but not quite there, in my opinion), there is a wealth of Thai food that hasn't been approached much in Nashville. I have pretty high hopes for Thai Esane if it truly is related to King Market.
