WHAT is a FALAFEL


HISTORY

The origin of falafel is controversial. A widely held theory is that the dish was invented in Egypt about 1000 years ago by Egyptians. As Alexandria is a port city, it was possible to export the dish and name to other areas in the Middle East. The dish later migrated northwards to the Levant, where chickpeas replaced the fava beans. It has been speculated, with no concrete evidence, that its history may go back to Pharaonic Egypt. Other theories propose that it came from the Arabs or Turks; or that the chickpea-based food came from Yemen.


Middle East

Falafel grew to become a common form of street food or fast food in much of the Middle East, especially in the Levant and Egypt. The croquettes are regularly eaten as part of meze. During Ramadan, falafel balls are sometimes eaten as part of the iftar, the meal that breaks the daily fast after sunset.  Falafel became so popular that McDonald's for a time served a "McFalafel" in its breakfast menu all over Egypt. Falafel is still popular with Egyptians, who eat it on a regular basis along with ful medames and even cook large volumes during religious holidays. Debates over the origin of falafel have sometimes devolved into political discussions about the relationship between Arabs and Israelis] In modern times, falafel has been considered a national dish in Egypt, also in Palestine, and of Israel. Resentment exists amongst many Palestinians for what they see as the appropriation of their dish by Israelis. Additionally, the Lebanese Industrialists' Association attempted to claim Protected Designated Origin status, partly to prevent Israeli use of the word.
Falafel is eaten by Mizrahi Jews who originally resided in Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel, Jordan, etc. Later, it was adopted by early Ashkenazi Jewish olim to pre-state Israel. Due to its being entirely plant based, it is considered pareve under Jewish dietary laws and gained acceptance with Ashkenazi Jews to whom it had been unfamiliar, because it could be eaten with meat or dairy meals.

North America

In North America, prior to the 1970s, falafel was found only in Middle Eastern neighborhoods and restaurants.Today, the dish is a common and popular street food in many cities throughout North America

What is a MUKBANG






MUKBANG


"Will Reviewbrah Ever do MUKBANG" ?



WHAT is a MUKBANG" ???


A Mukbang is a Live Broadcast, often on Youtube, where the Host Eats massive amounts of food while they interact with their audience. Mukbangs are usually broadcast through streaming Webcast on platforms such as Youtube, Twitch, and Afreeca. Mukbang was started in Korea in 2008 ... Food Stuffs such as Pizza, Burgers, King Crab, Ramen Noodles, Pasta, Hotdogs, Lobsters, Fried Chicken, and just about any food imaginable are eatin in Mukbangs. The Food is consumed in front of a camera for an audience that either pays or not.

Mukbang is a Korean Word that means Eat & Broadcast

Mukbang hosts are known as Broadcast Jockeys.

Other forms of Mukbang include COOK-BANG which are Cooking and Eating Shows.

As a cultural practice, Mukbang challenges the normal Korean Way of Life of Healthy Eating practices on a daily basis. Mukbang is not a healthy practice.

Of course eating is part of everyone's everyday life, we must eat to survive. Mukbangers have taking eating to another level. One might say, extreme levels.

With a Table Full of Food, and a Video Camera Mukbangers Eat with their Audience. They broadcast themselves eating on platforms like Youtube , Twitch, and Afreeca.TV ...

When broadcasting a Mukbang Show, the host must make sure that their audience is engaged, and that they get involved in the action, as they talk to their audience, make Jokes, Funny Facial Expressions, and eating noises like; Crunching, Slurping, Chewing, and Enjoying the Food in general.

Large Food manufacturers are using techniques similar to Mukbanging, showing people eating to advertise their products. You might say watching a Mukbang is like watching a McDonald's commercial. Mukbanger's have brought eating to a higher level. They do not eat normally, they must eat in the extreme or novel ways.

Some Mukbang videos feature the hosts eating massive amounts of Food, or they might feature the host eating extremely Spicy Food, that is much Hotter than most people could ever dream of eating. They couldn't, but the host can. People actually enjoy watching the host in pain from so much hot chili peppers in the extreme.

What are your favorite Mukbang's?

Dan gets a Cuban Sandwich





MOFONGO 


At CASTILLO d' JAGUA

LES

LATIN NEW YORK







SANDWICH CUBANO

Yes, Dapper Dan the Food Man gets a Sandwich Cubano at his Favorite Latin restaurant in           NEW YORK, IL Castillo d Jagua on Rivington Street on the Lower East Side of New York City.

"I haven't had one in a while. I've been dying for one, and couldn't wait any longer. So after my Chiropractor visit, I headed over to the Lower East Side, to one of my favorite places ever to get my beloved Cubano Sandwich."

"I've been Eating these Bad Boys for Years. I used to get just about one a week when I was living on Avenue A, and just had to shoot down 10 blocks to Essex Street to get one. I used to love a place on Essex Street, that no longer exist. But I'm happy to say that El Castillo d' Jagua is still there. I've been going there for more than 30 years, and I went back today, and was happy to see it still open. Most of the other old Dominican and Puerto Rican Joints have since closed."

When I sat down, the waitress gave me a menu, and I told her, "I know what I want. Can I have a Sandwich Cubano please," I asked her. She smile and said yes, so my order was in. All I had to do was wait. I was pretty sure that it would still be as good as ever, but I really wasn't sure. I think it was 3 or 4 years since I was here last, and it was good then. It was always good. These guys know their stuff, especially when it comes to making Cuban Sandwiches. So I waited. While I was waiting, I gave my brother Michael a call in Texas. A few minutes later my Cubano came. "Yee-ha! Dam it looked good. I couldn't wait." I bit in. "MMmummmm, Yeahh Baby! It was good. Good as ever. In fact, it was near perfect, and I was one happy camper.

"Yes Boys & Girls, this Baby was good. Better than good actually. It was Super Delicious I'd have to say. So, rating it, I'd have to give this Bad Boy a solid 9.9 on a Scale of 1 to 10. Wow, that's pretty dam good! A 9.9, it really doesn't get much better than that. But it was well deserving. The sandwich was just about perfectly made. These guys are consistent. They have to be, or their loyal customers wouldn't come back if they weren't."

YES IT'S ALWAYS GOOD HERE
