A noodle vendor in northern China has been detained on drug charges because he was serving noodles laced with opium to his customers. When asked to explain why he had been serving such soothing soup, the vendor said he “added it to his food to make it taste better and to improve his business.” Which makes total sense and brings us to this question; if there were Noodle dens, would you visit one?
In Kiss My Aura, his latest show at Slow Culture in Los Angeles, artist Travis Millard has taken his pancake art, covered it in resin (not syrup), and used the plate as a frame. Oh, he also made some rad drawings too.
The prices for some of these things in NYC are crazy, but I guess that’s what you have to pay for delicious. I was first introduced to the patty melt during a brief semester at Ole Miss, and the craving for this burger topped with onions and cheese, crammed between two slices of rye doused in butter, and finished in a frying pan has never relented. If it’s on the menu, it’s being ordered.
1 1/2 oz Aviation American Gin
3/4 oz Freshly pressed lemon juice
2 quater slices Peach
6 leaves Mint
3/4 oz Honey syrup*
2 oz Aldagio Organic Black Tea
In a pint glass, lightly muddle peach and mint

*To make honey syrup; combine equal parts honey to heated water and stir until honey is dissolved, let cool
Probably about 7 months late on that idea though. Anyway, Arby’s Off-The-Menu ‘Meat Mountain’ sandwich is $10 and contains 2 chicken tenders, 1.5 oz. of roast turkey, 1.5 oz. of ham, 1 slice of Swiss cheese, 1.5 oz. of corned beef, 1.5 oz. brisket, 1.5 oz. of Angus steak, 1 slice of cheddar cheese, 1.5 oz. roast beef, 3 half-strips of bacon. Just ask for it at the counter, and it’s yours.
For this installment of “Artist Eats,” we asked Randy Colosky to share his favorite place to eat. Randy is an artist based in Oakland, who creates mind-blowing drawings, sculptures and installations.
“Boot and Shoe in Lakeshore Oakland. I like that the food is pretty simple, pizza with great crust, salads that are properly dressed and not too fussy and sort of weird deserts that are good but not what I would normally get. The menu is not very big and changes slightly seasonally. You know pretty much everything on it is going to be good. The Margherita pizza is something we usually order and the Burrata appetizer is good when they have it. My lady (Nicole) and I like to go there at the end of a long week on the late side—it’s a nice atmosphere, busy but not insane, and the staff is always really nice. You can tell its a place that was really considered and not just dressed up to be fancy and they have some really nice art in there.”
