Fried chicken is probably one of my favorite food groups. Even when it’s not good, it’s delicious. Normally, I’d go for the typical American-style fried chicken with its crackling, crunchy seasoned coating, like you’d find at KFC or Popeye’s. Korean fried chicken, on the other hand, has a crispy paper-thin shell encompassing a super juicy wing. With the Red Wings starting their series against the Blackhawks, a very pregnant Mrs. T suggested wings would be appropriate for dinner and I obliged with a trip to Seoul Street up on north campus in Ann Arbor.

Apologies for the blogging hiatus. But I’m back to give you some summer drink ideas, just in time for the Kentucky Derby this weekend. So grab your favorite bourbon and enjoy these two concoctions that have become staples of our summer grill-outs and barbecues.

Le Dog had been one of those places that I’d been meaning to get to for a long time, but I could just never find the time to make it there. That is partly due to their brief hours, only open during the week for a couple hours for lunch. The stars finally aligned a couple weeks ago when I had a day off of work, which turned out to be a blisteringly cold winter day where a hot bowl of soup would fit the bill perfectly.

This is probably a good time to remind you that I am not a food critic or food journalist of any kind - I'm just a guy who likes food. So with that in mind, what follows is my take on Asian Legend in Ann Arbor. If you're anything like me, you've walked passed Asian Legend (on William next to Cottage Inn) a bunch of times and probably never noticed it. At first glance, the ambiguously named restaurant might look like any other mediocre Chinese takeout place where you can get your fill of General Tso's and Kung Pao chicken. In fact, you can do exactly that at Asian Legend if you want, but you'd be missing out on some delicious Taiwanese food.

Ever since moving back to Ann Arbor from Chicago, I have been trying to fill a taqueria void in my life. I went as far as trekking to Detroit’s Mexicantown to track down some al pastor on the spit. This time, I thought I’d take a look at my options a little closer to home and it turns out there are some decent options in Ann Arbor, with ground zero being a one-block stretch on West Liberty that has two taquerias worth visiting.

Although there are some areas where Ann Arbor/Ypsi are lacking (there is an amazing dearth of Latin food), one food where there is no shortage is burgers. I make no apologies for being an all-out burger snob – if I’m going to use a day’s worth of calorie and fat allotment on some beef and cheese, I want it to be the real deal. While I would probably argue that the best burgers in the area are coming from my kitchen, there are more than a few solid options around town.

A couple weekends ago, Michigan played UMass in what no one referred to as the Mitt Romney Bowl. Nevertheless, it seemed like as good a time as any to buy some lobsters and tailgate like the 1% with some New England lobster rolls.
