Random Bites of Detritus: Grinder, pastry, chili and beer, angry stir fry.

They call it a Grinder at the E. 14th Street Tavern, but it eats like a pizza boat! Saucy, garlicky, toasty, chewy.

From left: A tasty Almond Vanilla Pastry from Strudl Haus, purloined from Capes Kafé, but now Strudl Haus has a brick-and-mortar location on Indianola Ave.; Free chili and a mini-pitcher of Michelob Amber Bock at Carl's Place on Woodland Ave. makes life passable.

Angry Fever, level 4 spicy at Blu Thai Food & Sushi on E. Walnut. A par stir fry with tofu, bamboo shoot strips, onion, mushroom, green pepper, and ginger, garnished with cilantro. The dish offered a nose running heat; a lone piece of tender beef with my tofu was a bit of a surprise.
