Indalecio Penaloza of La Poblanita

September 20, 2022

We met Indalecio Penaloza of La Poblanita way back in March of 2021 when TJ and I were doing parking lot dining for all of our eats due to the pandemic. We ordered quite a bit from the sandal inspired huarache to the amazing deeply flavored chicken mole. Indy stopped out to talk to us about our meal (and maybe wondered a bit about these crazy guys tailgating in his lot). We talked food and that is what we are about to do on on this Food Recognize Food episode with Indalecio Penaloza so

Hang on to your fork and listen if you’re hungry. 

The Sandwich Episode

The Sandwich Episode

September 13, 2022

This episode I went to Phyl’s, Danell went to the Pit Lounge, I went to WD Racletterie, Danell went to Greg’s Drive In….ok so what I’m trying to say is that this was Mission Sandwich! The plan was this, seek out amazing, epic, unique sandwiches around Omaha and our area. We ended up at some fun spots and there are many more epic sandwiches out there, time for a Dirty Birds revisit anyone?...but that’s for a later show. This was kinda my excuse to try a few sandwich spots that have been on my list for sometime. 

Hang on to your fork and listen if you’re hungry.

Ali Woodward had a memory and saw an opportunity. She took her east coast New Jersey custard memories and launched a new career outside of her former nursing role and along with her husband Chase created Countryside Cones a brand new shop serving cold treats and looking to make those same memories for others. We talk about success and challenges from starting quickly, learning how to create a business plan, squaring off with machinery and places that Ali and Chase like to eat, all from the Village Grinder coffee bunker….so listening in you’re hungry.

Katie and Noah Mock rock both Nite Owl and Fizzy’s Fountain and Liquors in Little Bohemia.

Katie, Noah, and I got to talk food and discuss the hardline table telephone ordering at Fizzy’s along with insight into the world of their restaurants. I look forward to you being at the table with us….so

August 16, 2022

I must confess I broke a cardinal Faturday rule on our prior Corner Kitchen episode as I usually wait to review a place until after they have been open for about a month…but I couldn’t help myself as the food looked too fun. 

Well, on this episode we have the creators of that food Chef Oscar Hernandez and fellow Corner Kitchen owner Maira Hernandez. We of course talk about Corner Kitchen, places Maira and Oscar like to eat and I really dig the part where we get to talk about the cuisine of Mexico specifically the different types of tortas…chiliquiles torta anyone?

Time to stroll with Lisa and Tim Trudell otherwise known as the Walking Tourists.

We talk about their work adventuring and authoring in and around our fair city as well as outside of the metro. They also have an upcoming book focused on preserving the history of our Omaha restaurants which have been a part of our lives from daily lunches or maybe a special celebration. Conversation is afoot on this walk with the Walking Tourists.

You are in for a treat, well I have to say Danell and I had the treats and you too will be treated with the food of Korean House located at 2413 Lincoln Rd, Bellevue, NE. This is a tiny spot with big fun between the wonderful food and the hospitality of the owner and staff. We’re talking sweet bulgogi and heat of the hot chicken and some really tasty fried dumplings. The name of the place really does relate to the experience because I felt right at home. Hang on to your fork and listen if you’re hungry.
