Char Hung Sut in Honolulu Chinatown - Photo of Char Hung Sut Restaurant in Honolulu
Char Hung Sut has earned its reputation for its manapua, or buns filled with barbecued pork. This is the Hawaiian version of the Chinese char siu bao, although the Hawaiian version is larger than the Hawaiian adaptation. Also try the pork hash. Address, phone number and other info. Page 6.

You can see pork and chicken being prepared char siu style in the window of Char Siu House, in Honolulu's Chinatown. Page 5.

Char Siu House in Honolulu Chinatown - Photo of Char Siu House in Oahu Chinatown
Char siu is a Chinese term that refers to meat cooked barbecue-style. In Chinese cuisine, the meat in question is invariably pork, but in Hawaii, other meats are used, including poultry. The meat is seasoned with a blend of honey, five spice and other ingredients that turn the flesh a pronounced red. Char Siu House restaurant specializes in all things charred meat. Restaurant address and phone number, and a recipe. Page 4.

Oahu Market in Honolulu Chinatown - Oahu Market Honolulu Chinatown's Oldest Market
Oahu Market is the oldest in Honolulu's Chinatown, dating back to 1904. This is the place for meat lovers -- and a place that vegetarians and those upset by seeing things like whole roasted piglet heads may want to avoid. (In which case, head to the less-intense markets nearby, Maunakea and Keakaulike.)Address and visitors info. Page 7.

Povi Masima at Oahu Market in Honolulu Chinatown - Samoan Corned Beef in Honolulu
Povi Masima is salted beef brisket, or corned beef, and you'll see it throughout Oahu Market in Honolulu's Chinatown. While corned beef is enjoyed the world over -- and especially on rye with mustard in cities like New York or Montreal -- povi masima tends to be featured in dishes that are more Polynesian, often prepared with taro leaves, or as the basis for Samoan chop suey. Page 8.

Get started with wine touring maps, for the Willamette Valley and its sub-appellations, as well as the very different world that is Southern Oregon wine. Oregon also shares viticultural areas with its two neighboring states: Washington to the north, and Idaho to the east. Find maps for these cross-border wine areas as well.

Schwartz's Deli Smoked Meat - Montreal's Best Restaurants for Travelers
Montreal's own Schwartz's deli is known far and wide for its smoked meat, which is a Jewish deli-style beef that you'd find on sandwiches, akin to pastrami or corned beef. (Note: purists will say there's no comparison; learn the actual difference here.) This Hebrew deli has been in business since 1928, and is apparently the oldest in Canada. The line outside this small restaurant frequently stretches well outside the door, and seating is tight -- but you may well spot a celebrity dining there. Page 3.

Schwartz's Deli Menu, There's More than Smoked Meat - Montreal's Best Restaurants for Travelers
Schwartz's Deli menu isn't very deep -- not many people are going to venture beyond the smoked meat, or viande fumee, after all, although there's also a delicious turkey that's justly celebrated. Don't forget a side order of frites. Page 4.

Schwartz's Smoked Meat Platter - Montreal's Best Restaurants for Travelers
Schwart's smoked meat is the centerpiece of the menu, and is oft-compared with the pastrami at New York's Katz's deli. It's not an unreasonable comparison, as both restaurants were founded by Romanian Jews, and both serve marinated beef brisket that is then smoked. The difference lies in the composition of the brine that the brisket is marinated in, and the smoking technique. (In case you're curious, corned beef is unsmoked pastrami.). Page 5.

Les Touilleurs Cookware Shop and Cooking School - Montreal's Best Activities for Foodie Travelers
For the serious cook, a visit to Les Touilleurs is dangerous -- for the pocket book and for the luggage. This is the place for high quality cooking tools, and it also offers cooking classes in the evening with some of the city's finest chefs. You have to join their mailing list to book, and once you receive a class announcement, act fast: classes sell out four to five months ahead, typically within two days. Page 10.

Jean Talon Market in Montreal - Montreal's Best Food Market for Travelers
Jean Talon Market in Montreal is one of the best food markets in the world. With both indoor and outdoor space (the outdoor space mostly used in the warmer months), the market offers produce, flowers, prepared foods and even a cookbook store. It's often described as the largest outdoor market in North America. Page 7.

Fromagerie Atwater Cheese Shop in Montreal - Montreal's Best Gourmet Shops for Travelers
If you love cheese, you're going to want to visit La Fromagerie Atwater in Atwater Market. Although Atwater Public Market is known as the tourist market, and Jean Talon, as the place where residents shop, Atwater offers plenty for gourmets to choose from. Top attraction: La Fromagerie Atwater offers more than 700 cheeses, with a special emphasis on Qubec artisan cheese. You'll smell the quality there before you taste it! Page 6.

Creative Gourmet Dining in Montreal - Montreal's Best Restaurants for Travelers
When it's time to sit down for dinner, Montreal offers a ridiculous number of excellent choices. One of the city's consistently high-rated restaurants is Nuance -- located at the city's casino, which is either a plus or a big minus depending on your feelings about casinos. Great food in a more casual atmosphere can be found at one of the city's culinary icons, Au Pied du Cochon, owned by chef/celebrity Martin Picard. It would be a gustatory crime to miss his foie gras poutine. Page 9.

Typical Montreal Breakfast at Atwater Market - Creton and Croissant at Premiere Moisson
At Montreal's Atwater Market is Premiere Moisson, a great spot for a traditional Montreal breakfast. Load up on croissant, and order some turkey rillette (which is a spread that's similar to a pate) and/or creton, a pork spread that's very heavy on the fat and also includes cloves. (It looks a lot like scrapple, but tastes more like liverwurst.) If that's not your thing, go for the pain au chocolat instead.

Le Marche de Saveurs at Jean Talon Market - Montreal's Best Gourmet Shops for Travelers
Le Marche de Saveuers, across from Jean Talon Market, is where you'll want to pick up your Qubecois foodie souvenirs. The store carries only food and drink made in Qubec: wine, jam, spreads, and that most iconic of Canadian foods, maple syrup. The shop carries the pretty glass bottles shaped like a maple leaf, but you'll get a better deal (and be shopping like a local) if you purchase it in a can. Transfer it to a glass jar once you open it and keep it in the fridge. Page 8.

Montreal's Best Bagels - Montreal's Best Restaurants for Travelers
You can't visit Montreal without sampling one of the city's best bagels. Bagels came to Montreal with Jewish immigrants, and if you're used to New York style bagels, you'll find they're smaller, more chewy and -- some would argue -- much better. The two stalwarts (and arch rivals) in town are Fairmount (since 1950) and St. Viateur's (since 1957). Both make bagels the traditional way -- boiled, then baked in a wood-fired oven, and at both the default flavor is sesame. Page 2.

Les Chocolates de Chloe in Montreal - Montreal's Best Restaurants and Gourmet Shopping for Travelers
Les Chocolates de Chloe is the place to get an artisanal chocolate fix in Montreal. These bonbons of all flavors, from avant-garde stalwarts like sea salt and cardamom, to old favorites like pistachio and rum raisin, are hand-crafted and delicious. And the hot drinking chocolate might just send you over the edge. By the way, if you find yourself in need of a chocolate fix when you're in Old Montreal, hit Olive et Gourmando for some of the best brownies in town. Page 12.

A Duck and Foie Gras Shop in Montreal - Montreal's Best Restaurants and Gourmet Shopping for Travelers
Montreal is fairly duck and foie gras obsessed -- it factors into a lot of dishes, so hardly a surprise that you'd find an entire boutique dedicated to these birds. Le Canard Libere, Espace Gourmand, sells a full line of Brome Lake Duck products -- from whole birds to pates to duck legs confit to foie gras and everything in between. There's also a deli where you can have salads and -- what else? -- duck sandwiches, and some casual seating. Page 11.

Prince's Hot Chicken Shack in Nashville, Tennessee - Hot Chicken
Hot chicken, or very spicy fried chicken,is a favorite meal in Nashville, Tennessee. Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack was the first hot chicken shack in town. It was founded in the 1940s by current owner Andre Jeffries’ great-uncle, who was something of a womanizer. Legend has it that a vengeful lady friend once prepared him the hottest chicken she could conjure from her skillet, with the intention of causing him a great deal of pain. But her plan backfired,and a local specialty was born

Prince's Hot Chicken Shack in Nashville Tennessee – Best Southern Food
Hot chicken, or very spicy fried chicken,is a favorite meal in Nashville, Tennessee. Hot chicken is the perfect food for a cheap lunch or a late night snack. The hot chicken sandwich at Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack is the model for all hot chicken shacks in town: your choice of cut of bone-in chicken, served atop two slices of white bread and garnished with dill pickles. Page 2.

Prince's Hot Chicken Shack in Nashville Tennessee – Cheap Spicy Southern Food
When you order at Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack, choose your cut of chicken, sides and most importantly, the level of heat for your chicken. “Medium” gives you nice heat spreading through your mouth and throat, and a tingle on your lips, while “hot” burns all the way down like drinking bourbon mash. Only order the chicken extra-hot if you're on a dare, because medium will be hot enough for most spice-hardy people. Whatever heat level you order, don't ever touch your eyes while eating hot chicken. Page 3.

Hot Chicken Shacks in Nashville, Tennessee - Spicy Southern Fried Chicken
If someone in Nashville asks you if you’ve ever had “hot chicken,” they’re not talking about heat that comes from an oven. They mean hot, as in off-the-charts spicy. This local variety of fried chicken gets its name from a long bath in a fiery marinade, spicing in the crust and a light coating of a burning hot sauce, which creates the kind of sinus-clearing heat guaranteed to make eyes water. Seek out one of the area’s hot chicken shacks for an affordable lunch or a perfect late night snack.

To order at Bolton’s Spicy Chicken & Fish, stride right past the two plastic-draped tables, and confidently rap the brass knocker on the bright pink closed door to summon the cook. You don’t have a choice of spice level for your chicken at Bolton’s, it’s all served damned hot. Slide one slice of bread under your meat to catch the drippings, and use another slice for cooling your mouth. On the side, try the sweet and meaty baked beans, and the spicy turnip greens. Page 5.

Chicken Real in Old Hickory Tennessee - Hot Chicken in Nashville Suburbs
Chicken Real in Old Hickory, Tennessee. It’s about 15 miles outside of downtown Nashville, a good choice for travelers who would rather stay in the suburbs. Chicken Real is a great choice if you’d like to seem tougher than the actual tolerance of your stomach lining. The chicken here comes in “mild, ” “hot” and “suicide.” but even the “suicide” isn’t as hot as the mid-level heat at the downtown hot chicken shacks. Page 9.

Chicken Real in Old Hickory Tennessee - Spicy Picnic Food in Nashville Suburbs
Chicken Real's meat may not be quite as hot and spicy, but the sides here are the best in town. The macaroni and cheese is silky and divine; the hand-battered French fries and green beans dipped in house-made honey mustard sauce alone are worth the 15-mile drive from downtown. Chicken Real is take-out only, making this a great choice for travelers stocking a picnic. Page 10.
