This is our third "Ten Things" episode and it's stuffed with all kinds of foods that have probably never been together before.
We're powering through our colds and congested voices to bring you a double Fast Food Face Off, news from the White House, and discussions of everything from Alice Waters to restaurant reality shows to food blogging debates.
We're also continuing to eat our way through every restaurant in Ithaca from A-Z with our first stop in the letter "H" at Hai Hong Chinese restaurant in Collegetown. Take a listen to our thoughts on their delicious dim sum, and check out photos of all the dishes we ate by visiting our Flickr page (http://www.flickr.com/photos/eatingithaca/).
