Weekend Eats: ‏Pork Tonkotsu Ramen, Spicy Chicken And Waffles, Oysters With Crispy Shallots

I don't want to show my cards, but you stand a considerably better chance of winning each week's Weekend Eats battle royale if whatever photo you submit has an egg on it.
 
Doesn't matter what it is.
 
Bowl of cereal? Put an egg on it.
 
Glass of champagne? Put an egg on it.
 
Plate of eggs? Put another egg on it. In fact, put two, just to be sure.
 
That gives you some explanation why by Twitter chum Stacy Tabb - who goes by the handle @sekimori - took the top prize with her photo of duck confit with caramelized pineapple and quail egg she had at the Terrace Grill in Lakeland.
 
Not only did she go egg, she mixed her fowl, going with the duck confit and then taking a dog leg to the quail.
 
Well-played, m'lady.
 
For her efforts, she now enters the hallowed and revered Weekend Eats Hall of Fame on Pinterest (540 followers? Somebody needs a life.) as well as earns the very fine book by chef Richard Blais, “Try This At Home.”
 
Allow me to suggest making the Potato Chip Omelet.
