This is the single best video about Whoopi Goldberg and creamed corn paranoia that you will see all day. Perhaps even for the rest of the week. You're very welcome.

Fame Bites goes inside the belly of the entertainment beast. We're dishing out where the celebrities are eating, what they're eating and who they're eating with.

What's six-foot-five, 220 pounds and there's two of them? If you guessed the “Winklevii,” as they were dubbed in the Oscar-winning movie The Social Network, we have ourselves a winner.

Along with being Harvard graduates and entrepreneurs, Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss placed sixth in men’s pair rowing at the 2008 Beijing Summer Games. Now with the London Games quickly approaching in 2012, they've got their eyes and oars set on gold again - and have the appetite to prove it.

Poll – personal food fouls

An old boyfriend used to refer to me as being "food macho." The gnarlier the menu item, the more likely I am to order it - and it's not (just) about some misplaced culinary muscle flexing. I genuinely enjoy the funk of deliberate rot and game and un-tender animal parts. I'm the one who'll order the bowl of ox knees, duck blood or fermented catfish curry that prompts the waiter to cock his head and ask, "You know what that is, right?"

I've sifted through pig guts with my own hands, eaten numerous animal faces, am on the lookout for enough fresh sheep's blood to make Icelandic slátur and if I do ever chance upon some balut (that'd be fertilized duck egg) - down the hatch it'll go.

But plop a plate of tuna noodle casserole in front of me, and I'll start to weep, and maybe even shake a little. If it's in restaurant, I'll try and keep myself contained, but the tears may - okay, have - flowed.

Editor's note: Kebab Café made Eatocracy's list of Where to Eat in New York City

When chef and food aficionado Ali El Sayed opened the Kebab Café in Astoria, New York City, some 24 years ago, few there had even heard of Egyptian cuisine.

He was the first to open an Egyptian business on Steinway Street, a bustling neighborhood in the borough of Queens, and a small-business hub now known as "Little Egypt."

It's long been a home to immigrants - first Germans, then Italians and Greeks, and most recently, Arabs. Almost half of Queens businesses are minority owned and together they bring in an average of $7 billion annually.

While it typifies the growth of many American neighborhoods, Little Egypt also boasts one of the most diverse populations in the United States, according to recent census results. Foreign-born residents in the borough come from over 100 different nations.
