I like this particular item. However, I once dined at a Filipino joint where the staff had a policy of refusing to serve it to "American" customers, unless they said that they had had it before, and genuinely liked it. They'd apparently been burned by curious westerners trying it, and declaring their dislike.
The BF likes it but(t) I. Just. Can't.
Maybe Filipino's don't know how to prepare it well?
I had it in Argentina and they toss it on the grill where it stays tough. They rarely braise anything.
I've never seen it at the Grocery, however thinking about it I am sure a Chinatown butcher would carry it.
Not carried in grocery stores here but in many Asian and Mexican stores. They eat some weird stuff.
I've had it OP and it is really delicious...time consuming, but easy to prepare and very much worth it.
Never seen pig tail before! I bet that would be good as well.
You people will put anything into your mouths.
I tried pig ears as tapas once, since that's supposed to be traditional. Not Recommended.
I frequently make oxtail stew. Wonderful, rich flavor.
On my recent visit to New York I had oxtail stew at a Cuban/Chinese restaurant on Broadway in the upper westside. The name is La Caridad 78 It was good and hit the spot on a cold December day. Sucked the bones dry! Btw, the side was a huge plate of rice and beans, as hungry as I was I could only eat half. It must be very popular because the take out delivery boys were busy the whole time I was there.
I'm linking the Yelp page to this restaurant.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
