Ted ampersand Honey

Cobble Hill is at its best when you order a sandwich at Ted and Honey and eat it in the park next door. Verandah place, really a lane, divides the eatery from the park, is one of the most charming pavements in Brooklyn.

I couldn't help but gravitate to the cole slaw accessorized pulled pork sandwich. I've had this delicious lunch twice now. At Jinx's in Charlottesville the pulled pork sandwich with cole slaw cost substantially more than either alone. I got the point, but when a mixture of pork and cabbage, the dressing soaked into the bun, are put together, I've found a sandwich I can't get enough of.

UK Cabbage

This bin of small white cabbages was located in a London supermarket. The petite balls would probably be great for a serving sized bowl of coleslaw.


Roy Roger's Slaw

A rest stop was spiced up with this side of cabbage salad courtesy of Roy Rogers. It wasn't the most flavorful but road trips aren't the time to complain.

Cole slaw recipe

Here's a coleslaw recipe in a yellow haze. Crisp, not goopy; hardy, not savory: perfect for winter slaw.


Milwaukee's Best?

With the option of 'rwb' (red, white, and blue) or creamy, here's a plate of delightful cabbage from Maxie's Southern Comfort in Milwaukee, WI. They serve it up in Ithaca too.

Hill Country BBQ

A New York BBQ tour of sorts has commenced. Where there's BBQ, there's slaw, at least if the place has any respect for itself. Tucked into 26th Street, across from another BBQ joint, Hill Country serves it up Texas style. Welcome to eating to eat, not dissimilar from a churrascaria.Hill Country BBQ has plenty of food to go with the slaw, especially on Monday nights. $25 dollars buys an all-you-can-eat plate of brisket, chicken, and pork ribs. There's nothing more American than gorging. Brisket is an unappetizing word for meat but this cut was tender and flavorful, a surprise. As if the meat wasn't enough, four sides are included, namely coleslaw, sweet potatoes, mac & cheese, and cornbread. The slaw, coarsely cut, heavy on the purple cabbage, with a generous number of carrot shreds, was light on dressing and a little light on taste. The barbecue sauce made everything taste better.
There were no draught beers but plenty of bottles, PBR, Tecate, typical eurobrews. There are drink specials before 6 and late night, but none when it really matters. After a few too many briskets, I bought Rolaids in the CVS down 6th Avenue.

Price: $36/person

Picnic Slaw

This slaw, mayo based, dilled, and peppered, jammed to Animal Collective from a hill outside the blacked-out fence at Prospect Park on August 15, 2009.
Its ingestion was accompanied by prosciutto, tomato, and mozzarella sandwiches. Thank you Caputo's of Carroll Gardens.
