Pringles Texas BBQ Sauce vs Kettle Honey Barbecue

Wednesday, 13 May 2009 07:33 by nico
Hey, it’s been a long time since we last posted ! We’ve been searching barbecue sauce everywhere, and so in chips. Let’s begin with the Pringles “Texas BBQ Sauce” flavour. Frankly, there’s not much to tell about these, the brown/red powder covering the thin and cripsy chips is the main feature but it tastes too much like the paprika ones without the spicy kick… they’re not really tasting barbecue sauce. So if you expect a delicious smokey taste, forget it ! But Marie still like them, so maybe I’m a little bit too harsh The opponent is far more interesting, Kettle is a british company producing hand cooked chips, with natural ingredients, without artificial flavours nor colours. That sounds sweet ! And their Honey Barbecue Chips taste reaaaallly good. The shape, the colour and the seasoning of each chips is different from the last, which really accentuates the “hand made” spirit, in the opposite of Pringles. They smell and taste like potatoe, they are very thick (as the foil bag) and almost hard to eat. The flavouring is sweet and even if it’s not too barbecued, it’s still a pleasure to eat. They’re not that fat but leave an unpleasant greasy feeling on the fingers. If you know any other barbecue flavoured chips we should try, taste and review, go ahead ! For the info, we've been cooking our very first homemade barbecue sauce and it's looking quite promising, so we’ll talk about it in a later post. And if you want to support the blog, be our cheerleaders at the 10Km of Uccle this sunday, Marie and I and a few mates will be running under the barbecuesauce.be flag !

Houtsiplou

Friday, 17 April 2009 01:50 by nico
That saturday evening, we headed to the city centre to eat before going to the Brussels Fantastic Film Festival and we stopped at Houtsiplou, a fairly new restaurant. “Houtsiplou” is a belgian expression which stands for a very far or imaginary place; but there are actually several villages in Belgium called like that.   Anyway, their main dishes are homemade burgers, which are really big compared to what you can get in a filthy McDonald’s because they’re like 15cm wide and 10cm thick with 200gr of beef inside ! You could hardly find similar sized burgers in Brussels. I chosed the “Classic” one: 200gr of beef, cheddar, salad, tomatoes, gurkins, fried onions and… barbecue sauce ! Indeed, most of their burgers are made with BBQ sauce, that’s good news innit ? The burger was really good, and the fries (served in a flower pot) were perfect. The only thing is that they definitely should add more barbecue sauce to it because you could hardly taste it. I told that to the waitress, and she said she always asks for more barbecue sauce inside because she loves that (she might read this blog, who knows !) and their sauce is actually homemade! Next time, we’ll ask for a sample, so we could review it ! Houtsiplou Place Rouppe 9, 1000 Bruxelles http://www.houtsiplou.be  Read the review on Zone02 (in french or dutch)

What barbecue sauce is NOT

Tuesday, 24 February 2009 08:04 by marie
We absolutely have to stand up to fight against fake barbecue sauce ! Today, I went for lunch and got me a nice sandwich : fitness baguette - chicken - tomatoes - eggs - salad mix and... BARBECUE SAUCE. When I saw that one I couldn't do anything but tasting it. And I got REALLY disappointed. Well, at first, I couldn't taste the barbecue sauce as much as I'd have liked... they'd been really stingy about it (which with barbecue sauce is a CRIME). Second, never put eggs and bbq sauce together, it's not good at ALL ! About the bbq sauce really, it tasted more like mexican sauce... hot ketchup thing... HOW CAN YOU SAY IT'S BBQ SAUCE WHEN IT TASTE LIKE THAT?!   Barbecue sauce is sweet. Barbecue sauce is little sour. Barbecue sauce is little vinegar. Barbecue sauce is barbecued.  Barbecue sauce is NOT hot mexican ketchup shit !
