Hi! This is 100% out of personal curiosity, let me know if you feel like you got your worth out of it when this thing’s all over! I waffle on trying this stuff myself. It’d be different if I was a Subway fan, but since I live in Chicago with so many great options, it’s hard for me to justify not going to the mom and Read more

I know. I realize I do this for a living, which sort of gives me an excuse to fill my phone screen up with fast food apps (my poor gut), but it’s starting to be a little much. We should start a one-stop food app just called FOOD that we can order whatever we want from. That’ll do it! We’ll be rich, Jalopnik Refugee! Read more

Hi! Have you found any acceptable ones? Totally just curious. Read more

The whole thing! Maybe I am just TOO aware of it all. Read more

I commute to The Takeout office and man, even after I’ve brushed my teeth after coffee, I’m hyperaware of how my breath smells in my mask. It’s the worst! Read more

Damn, Dave! I forgot the “heard” thing! I used to say it to people outside of the kitchen out of absentmindedness. When you switch to an office you look funny saying that so I had to break that habit! Read more

Dude. The pain is real. It was the same for me. Read more

I’m laughing right now - it’s because I like doing the taste tests because they’re fun to write and no matter what, I’m still innately curious about how everything tastes. But if you notice I ever start doing less of them, it’s because I’m trying to give my body a break.  Read more

I’ve been thinking about my relationship to food a lot lately. I was obsessed with it before I started working at a restaurant, and then when I started making pizza, food sort of became an object of repulsion. Some days I’d only eat at night after I got home, even though I’d desperately needed the calories all day. I Read more

I think Marnie (my editor!) had some of the creme by itself. I am assuming on your behalf that you probably wanted to know if she tasted the cookie part in the creme, yes? Read more

They probably do. Soju nights sound wild (I’ve never gone drinking in Korea). Koreans crush soju like nobody’s business and the mayhem you’d expect does indeed ensue. Read more

I hate that I know exactly what you’re talking about. But on the flipside, if I had to guess, that squirminess means they used less plastic which is better for the environment? (I can be optimistic, right?) Read more

I was just about to proudly respond to you with the same map, which I don’t think I’ve written about yet. My fiancee’s brother scored some using the map, and I believe he got a bundle to freeze up and enjoy later. Read more

You’re totally right. I corrected this, because that was not what I’d meant. (A tired Dennis is an inaccurate one.) Read more

You and the other commenter who mentioned this are correct. I knew this too, but apparently I was pretty tired when I wrote this! Read more
