Tony DiLisio

In Episode #149 proudly recorded in The Less Desirables Studios at The Lab at Industry Hill Zoom sponsored by Bull’s Tavern:

Tim, Ray and Lea talk about:

  • Restaurants re-emerging to try different ideas, menus and directions to stay relevant and keep their doors open, while offering service to the community that loves them.
  • Winston-Salem Strong. This website includes the food and beverage list that we have been forging and resources for businesses and individuals that are needed at this time, including unemployment, SBA loans, tips for servers, and many other services. All this in one place. Winston-Salem Strong!
  • Krankies reopen with limited hours, limited days, limited menu and a virtual grocery store.
  • Delicious By Shereen starts delivery again.
  • Shokunin Ramen becomes Bootleg Ramen and will deliver storable ramen meals and wine from Sanders Ridge.
  • DiLisio’s opens on Wednesday, 4/15 for curbside pickup ONLY.
  • Corks Caps & Taps have specials going on for curbside pickup. Check out their Facebook page for more details.
  • Food holidays and history.

Don’t forget our sponsors:

Carrabba’s Italian Grill Healthy, grilled meats, wood-fired pizzas, fresh ingredients, and phenomenal wine dinners. That’s just some of the offerings of Carrabba’s. And, Daniel Butner, the local proprietario, is salt of the earth and a pillar of good in the community. Go taste the goodness that is Carrabba’s and see why Tim and Ray are always talking it up!

Washington Perk & Provision Company. Better than a convenience store but not quite a grocery store, in the heart of Washington Park and Downtown WSNC.

The Humble Bee Shoppe is challenging your perception of scratch made and leaving you with an experience you couldn’t possibly forget! With inventive flavor combos and a sense of artistry, The Humble Bee Shoppe isn’t your average bakery.

The Man Who Ate the Town is part of The Less Desirables Network. Give it a listen on iTunes, Stitcher, Podcast Addict and TuneIn, basically anywhere you can listen to podcasts. Or you can listen here (at the bottom of the post).

Bootleg Ramen Menu and Operations Update

From Josh Trusler, owner of Bootleg Ramen (with edits):


Howdy, y’all!

Menu 2.0
Changed prices, added snowballs, and we’ll have Chrysanthemum Tea boxes for 1$ each.
Sanders Ridge Wine will be available for delivery as well, order through them and we’ll take care of the rest.

Here is a probably finished menu. Little changes but nothing major. Just a little update on us as well.
As many of y’all know, we were the frequent pop up known as Shokunin Ramen. Between the pandemic and a bit of chance, we’ve changed ideas and the name to help reflect that and a little homage to our old selves. The new idea is to bring y’all some homemade Japanese street food. Literally, we’re going to bring it straight to your door and within minutes of easy reheating, you can have some restaurant-at-home style food.

We will be working out of the Sanders Ridge Winery, Cabin, Wedding Venue and Farm, and will be able to deliver their wines as well. Just order wine from their site, and food from ours. It’s almost too easy, y’all. You can browse our site now, just to get a feel, but it will change a bit in the looks department soon for the better.

Easy ordering on the site, or if you have questions you can call us and order that way as well. Orders wanting to be delivered the same day must be placed by 2 pm. We begin deliveries at 3:30 pm, and will usually be done around 6:30. You can still place orders after 2 pm, they will just be placed on next day deliveries. You can also place future orders for up to 30 days out, and bulk orders hold very well in the freezer for long term storage.

Our delivery range, to start, will be:
Winston-Salem areas, Lewisville-Clemmons areas, Rural Hall/East Bend areas, and Kernersville.

We are working on getting Greensboro in our standard area but for now, we can only do bulk orders to Greensboro of at least $75. We can meet in a convenient delivery spot if you’re outside our range.

Sanitation is a big thing with us, so we’re taking extra steps to make sure everything is prepared and delivered in the cleanest way possible. Drivers will be wearing face masks and gloves (changed with every delivery), as well as having hand sanitizer in the vehicle at all times. Contactless Delivery is standard, where the driver will drop food off at the front door (or otherwise specified area) and will not leave until the food is picked up. We will text/call when food is dropped off, and maintain proper social distancing until you get it! We will take cards over the phone or website, but no cash, please. Drivers will not accept cash tips either. Pre and Post sanitizing of vehicles will happen daily to ensure the safest environment for your delivery.

We should be delivering to y’all soon, just need to finish a few important documents and we’ll be set!

And as always,
“Itadakimasu”
