MEXICAN BANANA SPLIT
The Sunday Daily News, Sunday Now! section, 17 April 2005, pg. 33, has a recipe for "Mexican Banana Split" (ice cream, fruit, and Kahlua) from Dos Caminos Park Avenue. Where does this dish come from? Probably not Mexico, but Las Vegas or Austin or New York?

I'm wondering if maybe appetizers aren't a big thing at Casa Cocina -- especially considering the soup and the tempting desserts that included the unlikely Mexican Banana Split -- and that therefore the kitchen doesn't get much practice with them. Whether that's the case or not, they need to work on them, because the starters dragged down some truly inspired entrees.

This bright, inviting watering hole in Austin is great for a quick bite or a leisurely meal. The margaritas come in several flavors, including an avodado 'rita (avocado margarita), which gets rave reviews. Some dishes are inspired by the Yucatan, like the cochinita pibil (pork baked in banana leaves). Other delectable options include the mole enchiladas and five different kinds of tamales. Blow your diet with the Mexican banana split with cajeta, coffee, and blackberry ice cream; slices of pastel tres leches; and all the toppings! Mixed drinks. 614 East Oltorf Street (512-444-0012). Breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. All major credit cards. $

"BARY POPIK" IN OUP BOOK
So it's Friday, and I'm dead tired, and I'm doing parking tickets in the room with no air and all the dust, and the guard tells me to go faster. And I'm thinking, I'm a "judge" taking orders from the guard? How much worse than life get?
I've made no money at all on "hot dog," so I figured I might as well spend $40 of that on some books.

ECHOES FROM THE LUNCH WAGON:
'Tis dogs' delight to bark and bite,
Thus does the adage run,
But I delight to bite the dog
When placed inside a bun.
This from the _Yale Record_ in October 1895, written in affectionate reference to the school's "Kennel" Club--a lunch wagon that sold sausages that may or may not have included a bit of canine filler. The word _hot_ got added that same month, and so an American institution was born.
