I have never liked preserved eggs (century eggs), it’s kind of nasty looking but my family loves it. So I was a little hesitant of trying a spicy deep fried preserved eggs dish at Machi. Machi is located in the city of Arcadia in Los Angeles. Machi sells pitchers of beer so most of the foods on the menu are meant to be eaten while drinking.
Since the preserved eggs were deep fried, I gave it a try and OH WOW they were fantastic. Salty and crunchy with a sort of creamy center. I ate a lot of slices.
A dish that I ordered, fried pork livers, most of my friends didn’t want to eat it. But just like how it was for me with the fried preserved eggs, once they had a slice they couldn’t stop eating them. So when nasty foods are deep fried, they instantly turn into something amazing!
We also shared a big pot of soup with clear noodles, lettuce and thin slices of pork belly. It was such a great way to cleanse all the fried foods and the beer.

You probably think Red Hook, Brooklyn would be the last place to find Filipino food. But if you know the story behind Philly Pinoy (used to be the “Bait Shop” with a tiki bar looking exterior) then you know it’s exactly where it should be. Catered to the large number of Filipino cruise ship workers that come in with the Queen Mary 2 and Caribbean Princess, Philly Pinoy is just mere blocks away for the homesick workers to get some home cooked meals. Last time without knowing how Benjamin David, owner of Philly Pinoy, runs his shop, I went looking for lunch and failed to get any food.
This time armed with my new found knowledge and the handy Brooklyn cruise terminal schedule, I didn’t fail.

I don’t remember how I found this place but I did thanks to the internet. Beer halls beer halls! We need more beer halls in Park Slope and not in Williamsburg. Whats not to love about beer halls? Endless beer choices and usually good hearty food to go with beers! That usually equates to meat or something deep fried. I rarely go to 3rd Ave in Gowanus for anything, except the occasional shows at the Bell House. And if you’re familiar with “South” Slope you know how much quieter it is after 9th St on any of the avenues. So to have a beer hall on 3rd Ave between 12th and 13th St well, is that good for business?
