Re: “The Best Cubanos and Puerto Rican Food in Town Shine at the New Location of Caribe Bake Shop

Thanks for this tip! I visited Caribe for the first time last weekend and enjoyed rice, beans, empanadillas, the blood sausage and chicharrones. I can't wait to go back!

Re: “10 Awesome Gyros in Cleveland

Piffle's in Parma (which used to be Fergie's) has closed. I'm so sad. They had my favorite gyros.
Can anyone who remembers a Fergie's gyro recommend the best place to get one just like it?

Re: “Finger Lickin' Good: A Quest for the Best Fried Chicken in Cleveland

A piece of advice to anyone on a chicken quest: do your research before you make that long haul down to Barberton for the famous Barberton chicken.
It's different than the fried chicken most people are accustomed to, as it has very few spices - only salt and pepper - in the breading, making it kind of bland by comparison. It is very tender and juicy.
The famous hot sauce is also unusual - it's a small bowl of stewed tomatoes and rice with a very small and subtle bit of "heat."

Was the camera being held by a hummingbird juiced up on Red Bull?
