Friday night with Tommy

Every now and then, in the middle of the night, I'll wake up to a Tommy's craving. I'm sure you've had it...well...maybe not in the middle of the night. But if you've ever had a Tommy's burger, you know what I'm talking about. Anyways, tonight I finally got to fill my craving with a simple Tommy's cheeseburger.'s soo beautiful. My favorite part of the photo is the cheese melting on the chili.

Hmm...I think I should pair my Tommy's with some Riesling. The pairing was a good match. The HaveMeyer has hints of apples and goes well with the chilis. I know people are probably thinking, "Who pairs wine with Tommy's? Who does that?" I do...and I like it.

Tommy's with Coke vs. Tommy's with Riesling...that debate is still rolling in my mind. Coke and even a orange soda can definitely break down the grease with its high carbonation. However, a Riesling plays well with the hot, yet slightly sour chilis. I dunno mans.

Yes Jeni! Great LA Food blog...funny how we all be of an Asian flavor, eh? hahah! Anywho, Tommy's with wine? Too funny! I won't say what the burger looks like, but I had to stop eating them chili burgers a while back. Had some bad chili with some insect protein. ;P

Hi Jeni - I'm really enjoying your Food Blog - would have never thought of matching wine with Tommy's! LOL! If you over indulge you'd get a deadly twosome - Heartburn and a Hangover.....
