"...The menu is very complete for a taquería, but he also adds seasonal specials, based on what he finds at the market. During corn season he offers an exemplary elote, sweet caramelized grilled corn slathered with mayo, crema fresca, cheese, and chile, with a squeeze of lime..."
"...I'm addicted to this appetizer and could eat it by the bucket. The catfish pulusu ($11.99), an Andhra curry gravy on marinated catfish steaks, with pureed caramelized onion, tamarind, turmeric, chile, and curry leaf, was delicious enough to spoon like soup..."
"...Here are the questions we judges considered about what makes a great beef rib: Is it appealing, with a crusty, caramelized bark and a penetrating smoke ring? Is moistness evident, and are the fat and collagen rendered and melted? Are there visible "sugar cookies" (sweet, crunchy globules of caramelized fat and spice)? Is it tender, with the right balance of fat to lean? Does it have the ideal "watermelon bite" or pull from the bone? Does the rib have a seductive aroma of hardwood smoke and caramelized sugars and spice with no bitterness? How prominent is the smoke, and does it complement the flavor? Does the beef flavor come through or is it subdued? Is the seasoning balanced and complementary? Is the beef rib a complete whole, with all taste elements contributing to the overall flavor?..."
"...Though Moosewood Collective is based in Ithaca, New York, their odes to vegetarian Southern comfort food have become staple recipes and regular "Blue Plate Specials." Appealing both in texture and flavor, the Dixie Tofu-Pecan Loaf proves a hearty late-fall entrée, excellent for a Thanksgiving table. The nutty flavor of toasted pecans pairs warmly with the herbal notes and creamy layers of Caramelized Onion Gravy (see recipe, p.50)...."
"...It offers two distinct concepts, though you can get either in both the bar/store area and in the bistro. The bar and late-night menu is high-end pub grub with an extra dash of creativity and offers items such as a cast-iron-skillet-seared 12-ounce skirt steak on crisp bread with caramelized onions and house fries ($11.95) or fresh Texas jalapeños stuffed with pork, chorizo, and queso served with seasonal grilled fruit ($6.95)..."
"...Garlic and rosemary were the leading components of the Linguine With Grilled Chicken ($14.25), a dish more satisfying than its name might indicate. The linguine were slick and just tender, the perfect roost for golden strips of rotisserie-grilled chicken and wisps of wilted baby spinach, all of it sealed together by caramelized garlic Pecorino cheese cream sauce...."
"...The patatas bravas ($5) were a little undercooked and the sauce a little too on the nose, but the roasted mushrooms ($9), already impossibly buttery, wallowed in cured egg. The two tortillas impressed too – the classic one-two of caramelized onion and potato ($5) is a heartier counterpoint to the more ephemeral kale and butternut version ($6)...."

"...Since they cook a little hotter and faster than the typical CenTex barbecue joint (sort of a cross between traditional slow-and-low smoking and smoke-grilling), you get a little less smoke taste, while it accentuates the beef and pork flavors that can get smothered by the clouds of oak. But the bark gets nice and caramelized and the smokiness is definitely part of the taste profile..."
"...5) Caramelized (www.caramelizedtouch.blogspot.com) This young blog is truly noteworthy, showcasing timely, compelling recipes and restaurant reviews, augmented by excellent photography. Readable and engaging...."
"...The atmosphere is exactly as promised – fun, friendly, and casual – and only when it was time for our second round of beer did we realize the main course had never arrived. Back to the counter for pints of the Day Trip Pale Ale (a close second-place favorite) and Big Mama Red (hop heads will fall in love with this formidable brew) and a reorder of one of their special 16-inch pies: sausage, caramelized onions, red and yellow bell peppers, and feta ($22)..."
"...I had a Real Ale Oktoberfest while noshing on several passed treats: crostini with savory caramelized tomato jam and mascarpone, and a sweet version topped with mascarpone, honey drizzle, mint, and blueberries. Once the herd got seated and introductions were made, servers dispensed the Devil’s Backbone: sweet maltyness with a hoppy spine; a pleasing tripel..."
"...The brisket slices (I requested fatty, from the point) were as amazing as ever. A thick, caramelized crust of smoky spice covers a thin smoke ring, fading into moist and beefy meat barely held together by melting collagen..."
"...The Flashback Friday deal harkens back to the year when Perry's was born as a butcher shop in Houston and outlets in the chain use social media to announce the availability to loyal fans. The first 100 folks standing in line when the restaurant opened at 11am were eligible for the 79 cent deal - that's right, a gigantic, center-cut smoked pork chop with a caramelized surface glistening with herb butter paired with whipped potatoes and homemade applesauce, carved tableside for less than a buck! [image-1]..."
"...8) Chocolate Bars and Bourbon Balls From Cocoa Puro Discovering Tom Pedersen's remarkable dark-chocolate bar with caramelized cacao nibs, salted milk-chocolate bar with caramelized almonds, and milk-chocolate bourbon ball in a chocolate pecan shell made me very glad I braved the inclement weather and attended the Eat Drink Local Week Coffee & Chocolate Festival...."
"...Cocoa Puro chocolates The dark chocolate bars with caramelized cocoa nibs or caramelized almonds ($4) are marvelous, but the milk-chocolate bourbon balls ($4) in a shell of milk chocolate with pecans will blow your mind; pick them up at the Downtown Farmers' Market on Dec. 24...."
"...2) KAKAWA'S CARAMELIZED CACAO NIBS The toasted sugar and dark chocolate crunch of the caramelized cacao nibs from Kakawa turned out to be the missing ingredient for a pie I've been making for more than 30 years. I liked them so much that this year I learned to caramelize my own nibs!..."
"...A first visit had us trying pan-fried dumplings ($5.95), tender caramelized handmade pastries enveloping minced pork and aromatics, with a well-balanced soy-ginger sauce emboldened by an assertive chile paste. The spicy shrimp with pepper and salt ($12.95) is one of the better versions in town..."
"...However, this year's absolute winner has to be Petersen's new Caramelized Cacao Nibs, crunchy little pieces of roasted 70% dark chocolate beans caramelized in pure cane sugar. Chocoholics will love them right out of the bag for snacking, but I've been so enamored of them as a potential ingredient, I've added them to all the sweets I can think of in the past few weeks..."
"...The Combo Plate ($10.39 lunch/$15 dinner) comes with gyro and chicken, rice pilaf, Greek salad, spanakopita, tzatziki, and flat bread. Both meats are moist, juicy, and flavorful; the lamb-beef gyro is full-flavored and the chicken nice and caramelized..."
