Uncle Gussy’s

Uncle Gussy

One of the great things about shooting the Blondie and Brownie cookbook is the chance to meet all the street food vendors they’re writing about. Some of the trucks I’ve been to many times and finally get to tell them “Thank you” for having such awesome food. While some I’ve never been but have heard many great things about. Though I guess Uncle Gussy’s fall somewhere in the middle. I had met the owners when I shot Brian Hoffman’s Mother’s Day video and now with the cookbook, I’ve been inside the truck many times. So far everything I have eaten has been sooooooooo good! AND they are SUPER nice people!

The pork chop and oven roasted lemon potatoes is a special so you’ll want to follow them on Twitter to find out when they will have it. I will tell you that it will be worth the wait. For $10, it was a lot of food. Who doesn’t like grilled pork chops?!?!


Seattle Day 1: Fried Egg Sandwich, Piroshky, Ramen, And Pizza

Flying into Seattle on Christmas Day was probably not a great idea because nothing was opened when I landed around 5pm. I had always wanted to visit Seattle again to sort of explore more than just the downtown area. Last time I was there it was 2006 and with a group of friends. We did most of the touristy things like going to the Space Needle and visiting the 1st Starbucks at Pike Place.

So Christmas Day in Seattle. It was rainy, gloomy and quiet. I stayed at the Ace Hotel, $99 per night but shared bathrooms with the rest of the guests plus complimentary breakfast and Stumptown coffee. Ace Hotel was a good few blocks away from Pike Place so I was away from any tourists crap but close enough. It was also surrounded by a bunch of great local bars and hang-outs.
