re: Halal Guys is coming to New Orleans - lilwineman
The one in Houston seems to be printing money. Great cheap food alternative with large portions. Agreed on skipping the side salad as its just a iceberg and tomato waste of space. Their hot sauce will light you up though so be careful....

re: Are these real Cohiba cigars? - lilwineman
He doesn't have the required seal on the box to verify the goods sadly. The verification barcodes are fairly new and those boxes come with holographic seals and excessive measures to prevent counterfeit nowadays....

re: Are these real Cohiba cigars? - lilwineman
Genuinely looking longer your box raises questions. The stamp on the bottom is barely visible, the warranty seal is placed on there quickly, as mentioned it's usually halfway through the first crest where it creases. There is no visible dating of numbering system to the box no the other traditional ...

re: Are these real Cohiba cigars? - lilwineman
Who told you that about black ash? They were blowing smoke up your ass...pun intended. Black ash comes from typically lower quality and poor nutrient soils. White and gray ash with white streaks are signs of higher quality tobacco and a properly rolled cigar. From the looks of your cigar up top,...

re: Best Steakhouse in Houston? - lilwineman
All mentioned are good bites...I'll give a nod to B&B Butcher off if Washington. Great cuts of meat and thick slab bacon that's to die for. Don't pass on the Carpetbaggers for an app, thick slab bacon with filet, fried oyster, and blue cheese on a skewer...

re: Brunch recommendations in BR? - lilwineman
I agree with the rest of the people...find somewhere that doesn't take reservations and show up 30 minutes before they open to get in line. Anything worth your time that takes reservations will likely be booked at all the reasonable time slots. We filled up for the preferred dining times almost a mo...

I've had a few different bourbon barrel wines and I think the same thing every time...someone is bound to like this, but it's most definitely not me. They come off medicinal almost with the leeching of the bourbon into the wine....

re: James Beard Foundation Awards - lilwineman
