Re: “Weekly Open Thread: What's Your Favorite Comfort Food?

Chicken Tikka Masala-- I hurt myself at an Indian buffet.

Re: “Pub5: This Week's Dining Review

I believe the food is better since the kitchen staff changes. Carrington's review certainly backs my conclusion. I could tell that the original crew was inventive but the execution was abysmal with some dishes that were inedible -- Hot Chicken Wings were a mess. It's my understanding that thay brought in help from their sister "Taproom." I believe that was a good thing.

Re: “The Road, No. 11: Tacos y Mariscos El Amigo [Eating Our Way Down Nolensville Pike]

I've only been on Saturdays and they've always had tamales. Is this a weekend thing or do they offer tamales during the week? While I can get tacos on the west side, the tamales definitely make it worth the trip. Can anyone attest to better tamales than El Amigo in Nashville?

Re: “Chuy's Hatches a Chile Festival at All Three Locations

Ok Goodgrief, I agree a food "festival" from a chain is usually suspect, but cut and paste or not, the Hatch pepper is crazy good. I've had mediocre meals at Chuy's before, but I've had two of these Hatch special entrees and they have been fantastic. Just the perfect amount of heat. Get the dish with the cheese relleno and chicken enchilada.

Re: “The Unbearable Hipness of Being East Nashville: NY Times Discovers Our Food, Bikes

@ Whatever. The point of Maloney's article is that a writer from Atlanta wrote a piece that attempts to explain food culture in East Nashville yet half of the eateries mentioned are on the west side(..poorly written from the start). The Atlanta writer, intentionally or not, disses our city in referring to its people as a bunch of hipsters. Maloney is in agreement with you that the hipster term generally means hollow, undiscriminating , fashion follower (very uncool). Read the original article; the whole thing is a backhanded compliment. Of course she doesn't actually talk to any of these zombies -- she's only interviewing the ones that are "far from hipster". To follow Ms. Severson's logic my thought is: How can a city full of mindless, fashion sheep produce anything worthy of a NY Times reader's interest?

Re: “First Bite: Taqueria y Pupuseria Lupita

Went by today. Weird hours posted outside. Tacos were great. The pupusas were, IMO, better than Pupuseria Salvadorena. I agree the curtido is not as "funky", but the vinegar sauce they supplied put it over the top. I wonder if they'll allow BYOB. Glad to see a place like this on the west side.

Re: “Matters of Grave Importance: Could You Legally Hunt Bigfoot in Tennessee?

In the very least, for wildlife management efficiency, it seems that the better hunting philosophy would restrict hunting to only those animals which have been deemed huntable. Healthy wildlife populations don't just happen. Careful analysis, regulations, and mostly hunter conservation produce results. You'd have a hard time managing wildlife if every animal was up for grabs. Byzantine? Ah maybe the point was complicated yet better than...?
