Shad vs. Shad Roe; Bao Bar at Asia Nine

THE CRITICS— In his weekly chat, Todd Kliman says he would like to see more chefs cooking with actual shad rather than merely the popular shad roe. Some chefs argue that cooking with the actual fish can get ugly, presentation-wise. "I understand that argument, but this is, as we've just been talking about, the age of offal, of turning not-great-looking things into delicious and attractive things. Why not a shad rillette? Why not a shad stew? Why not a shad pot pie?" [Washingtonian]

FOOD TRUCKS— Public service announcement for Chick-fil-A fans. The restaurant's mobile food truck is now serving waffle fries. [Twitter]
