This Week in Food: Crab Vending Machine, OC Food Contests, and Battle Deep-Dish Pizza!
Another amazing week on this infernal, yummy blog. After the jump: the best of the best!
Actually, most of our correspondents this week are traveling the world, yet took the time to post somedesmadre
. Michelle toldustedesabout some of Orange County's food-eating contests
(but didn't share the five-pound burrito at La Casa Garcias--for shame!) andshuddered at the idea of bacon soda
Shuji proved an even bigger nerd by recommending what to eat on Nigel Tufnel Day, told us of five great regional burgers McDonald's offers, and found a great carniceria in Rancho Santa Margarita. Oh, and crab vending machines!
And Edwin broke muchos stories this week from abroad: Sabatino's in Newport is opening another branch, and legendary Cuban bakery Porto's has opened a spot in Downey, which isn't technically OC but who cares in the face of their empanadas de guava?
