Burgatory Bar in Aspinwall/Fox Chapel Area

Checked out a burger joint called Burgatory Bar. Definitely a place worth visiting. FYI, the avocado wasabi is awesome. I mention it quite a bit in the video :).

Cooking up some Asian Pork

Last saturday, I saw a recipe on called Ginger Pork and decided to make it. I decided to change up a few things on the recipe. For one I used vegetable oil instead of peanut oil because I already had the vegetable oil and didn't want to buy peanut oil. Also, I doubled the amount for the ingredients associated with the sauce. Hey I'm a sauce fan and I can't help it :). However with that said, I should have doubled the amount for the rest of the ingredients especially cinnamon(I didn't have ginger). The dish turned out well, but I could barely taste the cinnamon. Despite that, the sauce did make the pork flavorful along with the rice. It also helped that I kept the fatty parts in too to bring more flavor to the dish.

The link to the recipe is here:

Update on Hong Kong Taste in Etna

Last night, I ordered take out from Hong Kong Taste, which was one of the restaurants I recently reviewed. I was disappointed to find out that they no longer sell sushi or any kind of Japanese cuisine. The person behind the counter told me that not enough people were interested in eating Japanese food in the Etna area. So all in all, I guess Etna isn't ready for sushi just yet. It's too bad too because their sushi was actually really good and fresh. I will certainly miss it :(.
