Cuban Grilled Cheese On A Steamed Bun (cubaono)
Naming this one the CuBAOno™: Yucatán-style roasted pork (cochinita pibil), honey ham, Swiss and Oaxacan cheeses, pickles and jalapeno mustard on a steamed BBQ pork bun (char siu bao) that was cut in half, stuffed and then pressed on the cast iron like a grilled cheese. It's that Cuban-Mexican-Chinese fusion-y sandwich that you never knew you needed (or existed) until now.
Chicken Parm Sandwiches With Spicy Marinara, Burrata, Caramelized Onions…
Instead of candy, decided to hand out individually wrapped fried chicken parm sandwiches with spicy marinara, burrata, caramelized onions and chimichurri to the neighborhood Trick-or-Treaters last night. They probably hate me today, but mom and dad will definitely be back next year.
Buttermilk Biscuit Fried Chicken Sandwich With Hatch Chile Pimento Cheese
My morning-after salute to America... and your hangover: Buttermilk biscuit breakfast sandwich with spicy fried chicken, Hatch chile pimento cheese and a sunny-side up egg (with a pool of yolk for dipping).
Curried Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps

TRUTH: Curry chicken salad is one of my favorite foods, on this planet or any other. I’ve been making, remaking and fine-tuning this dish for years… and with an assist from @BestFoodsMayonnaise and @theFeedFeed, I think I’ve finally nailed it! Check out the link in my bio for the full recipe. I love serving this salad lettuce wrap/taco style, but it’s equally amazing as a sandwich (or just grab a fork and dive in). Bonus: It’s even better the next day. #OrganicForThePeople #FeedFeed #Sponsored

In honor of #NationalPastaDay, a loose interpretation of what is possibly my favorite all-time pasta dish: Bucatini all'Amatriciana. This one starts with a spicy tomato sauce (and a LOT of pancetta and garlic), and I finish it with pecorino, smoked olive oil and an egg yolk... which is all just a more eloquent and socially acceptable way of saying: I made bacon, egg and cheese pasta.
Because I once read in a book somewhere that eating spicy, sweat-inducing foods actually makes you feel cooler (literally and figuratively), here's a Quinoa Chicken Curry Bowl to help beat this October heat. It's loaded with braised chicken, eggplant, tomatoes, garlic, ginger and garam masala... and topped with brown rice, crushed almonds and cilantro. No butter. No cream. It's Indian food with less attitude [bonus: my kids love it].
Packed the wife a lunch today (then made her take a photo with it, obviously). Here’s the shaved turkey sandwich w/ chipotle gouda, smashed avo, lettuce, tomato and spicy greek yogurt caesar dressing on grilled country bread. You know you did it right when the avocado is seeping through the holes in the bread.
Still the best $5 lunch/dinner/2am meal in LA. Don’t fight me on this. #NationalTacoDay 🌮
Late Saturday nights call for Sunday morning Waffled Bao breakfast sandwiches. Steamed Chinese BBQ pork bun (Char Siu Bao), cut in half, stuffed with scrambled egg + cheese + caramelized kimchi + hoisin + sriracha... pressed in the waffle iron (with fingers crossed). If you don’t have access to fresh or frozen Bao, store-bought biscuit dough works just as well [use two biscuit rounds, roll out or flatten with hands, layer fillings on one biscuit round, top with second and pinch all the way around to seal before pressing in waffle iron on medium heat].
Pumped for @djwes and all the much-deserved @guerrillatacos success (and especially that upcoming cookbook), but selfishly a bit sad that soon I’ll no longer be able to stop by the truck on the way into the office for stuff like this... [kampachi tostada w/ yuzu, white soy sauce, micro shiso, hazelnuts, raw tomatillo and serrano chile]. #FirstWorldProblems
