Food Feedback Friday: broken rice, banana leaves, and beef jerky

Posted By on Fri, Sep 6, 2013 at 8:19 PM


It’s tailgate time people. Football is on everyone’s brain right now. But you gotta eat, right? What are you eating at the game? What are you dragging to your tailgate? There is nothing that makes a football game more enjoyable than a cold drink and good food. You know there will be lots of good eatin’ where I’ll be camped out tomorrow.

So what were you all talking about last week on Food Feedback Friday?

Hugh Mann was quite impressed with the newish Vietnamese joint down on Asher, Mike’s Café. He was particularly fond of his “CO'M TÁM DAC BIET , which consisted of fried shrimp cake, Chinese sausage, pork chop and shredded pork over broken rice.” The fact that I have yet to try this place saddens me deeply, need to rectify this soon. MEnLR visited the new Anatolia in WLR. He had some mixed opinions about the place, calling the beef gyro, “so dry as to lead me to think it was really beef jerky.” He was impressed with the lentil soup, stating that “if they stay in business long enough, I can see myself stopping in on a cold day for some hot lentil soup and warm pita bread.” Numbernine got around to the new Mexican joint out in WLR on Rahling Rd, Cantina Cinco de Mayo, sampling the “quesadillas, fajitas, & taquitos—all were good.” Conwegian reports to us on the return of Banana Leaf and finds that the “dosas are good, the malai kofta on the August menu was fabulous, and a co-worker really liked the biryani.”

Got something to tell us about? Go on and leave your valuable feedback.

  • The Kraft Mac & Cheese Food Hack

    Recently, we held another food hack competition, taking another childhood classic, Kraft Mac & Cheese, and tried to turn it on its head, creating something entirely new and unique. Again, the results were pretty awesome. The rules were simple: Use a whole box of mac and cheese, both noodles and cheese powder, and turn it into any sinister monstrosity imaginable. We had a vote via the Eat Arkansas Facebook page to crown a winner. Here's what was submitted:

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
