The Dude of Food shares Micheladas

     The first photo shows how they serve Micheladas in the streets of San Miguel de Allende.

A liter styrofoam cup filled with all the fixings of a great refreshing drink for 50 pesos.

They have this stick in them that has some red picante stuff stuck to it that you use to mix your drink.

The second photo shows the ingredients.

For best results use fresh limes and skip the bottled lime juice.

I use Red Rooster or Pete’s hot sauce and not put too much ice.

If you don’t know about this spot then you probably shouldn’t, but I have to tell you that after my last trip to Mexico I have become a big fan of the michelada.

It just so happens that they make a good one here.  Pricey but good.

The 50 year anniversary party was awesome.

The Dude of Food likes Company 77 Fire Truck Pizza

What could be better than great homemade pizza delivered on a fire truck that has beer on tap?   This place has a good thing going.

The Dude of Food had this truck come to our christmas party last year and it was well worth it.  If you live in the southern california area then you need to experience this.

The staff is super cool. The truck is fun and has a photo booth and beer taps.  The pizza is hand crafted, refined and excellent.    This is the best food truck!

Refined sugar food facts.

Sugar-posion-300x300The numbers of pounds of sugar people on this planet eat is ridiculous. Be careful people. In some countries people actually eat more than 120 pounds of sugar per person in the country! Yes some is disguised in the form of high fructose corn syrup, ethanol and recycled farm food slop lending to the crazy streak in animals and then once again lending itself to the food chain for consumers.

Finding out that corn syrup is finding its way into beer is not only disgusting but disrespectful, careless, greed driven and idiotic.

Even cheap apple juice includes corn sweetener which is entirely not needed! Read labels and know that the manufacturers are trying to change law so the label can not tell you the truth. For now the new confusing label name is corn sugar. Read about this on the following New York Times Link. http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/09/14/a-new-name-for-high-fructose-corn-syrup/

Reinheitsgebot – The beer quality standard imposed by the church.

Reinheitsgebot literally means  “purity order” and is commonly referred to as the “German Beer Purity Law” or the “Bavarian Purity Law”. This is a regulation about the production of beer in the Holy Roman Empire and its successor state, Germany. The original text states the only ingredients that could be used in the production of beer are water, barley and hops.DownloadedFile

The law originated on 30 November 1487, when Albert IV the Duke of Bavaria promulgated it, specifying three ingredients – water, malt and hops – for the brewing of beer.

On 23 April 1516 in the city of Ingolstadt located in the duchy of Bavaria two other dukes endorsed the law as one to be followed in their duchies and added standards for the sale of beer.

The earliest documented mention of beer by a German nobleman is the granting of a brewing license by Emperor Otto II to the church at Liege (now Belgium), awarded in 974.

The world’s oldest continuously operating brewery is the Weihenstephan Brewery in Bavaria.

The Weihenstephan Brewery can trace its roots at the abbey to 768, as a document from that year refers to a hop garden in the area paying a tithe to the monastery. A brewery was licensed by the City of Freising in 1040, and that is the founding date claimed by the modern brewery. The brewery thus has a credible claim to being the oldest working brewery in the world.  (Weltenburg Abbey, also in Bavaria, has had a brewery in operation since 1050, and also known as “Corn Beer” claims to be the oldest brewery in the world.)  When the monastery and brewery were secularised in 1803, they became possessions of the State of Bavaria.

  •               On May 1, 2014 I found my myself in
  •      Fontainbleau, France enjoying a holiday called May day. The only people who have to work on May day are the restaurant employees so I went to this bistro down the street from Napolean’s house called L’escapade and tried some rum from Martinique.

Staff is friendly & the food is delicious. Go here!

Brussel’s Bar – Fontainebleau, France

mussels & beer

The Brussel’s Bar located on the main street in Fontainbleau, 47 Rue Grande, is a perfect place for an afternoon snack and a beer.

The prices are seasonable, the food is good and it is the perfect way to take a moment to enjoy another day in France.

Hint: the french fries may be in the top 5 worldwide. They are that good!

Santa Monica Pizza – Paris, France

santa monica sign

At the web site listed below you may find the information to the first sign I saw upon arriving in the Paris underground metro. Exiting the Métro at Place des Fêtes and having just left Santa Monica you can imagine the surprise this sign caught me by. I laughed and knew I must go check it out.

After traveling for 14 hours I was ready to drop my bags off, eat and wander around Paris. The pizzeria was closed so I didn’t eat there until the second night of my stay and found Ismail and the staff to be friendly and hospitable. Thank you.
