What new thing did you try eating this week?


Recommended Posts

Yeah there's a huge difference between a greasy burger or chicken tenders as opposed to boxed dinners.  As a single dad, I've made enough hamburger helper to keep the company afloat.

A lot of the more upscale bars around here have taken the old bar food concept and fancied it up....the big trend is burger bars.  Those places are popping up at every block.

And sometimes they're really fucking good, while other times you wonder why the hell you just paid 15 bucks when you coulda gone to the dive next door and got something better for 4. That happened to me last time we went out, even the onion rings weren't good.

Alright so this wasn't today, but last week I finally tried Dick's Drive-In after living in Seattle for 15 years. Everyone talks about how legendary it is. It was barely better than McDonald's. Tami wtf? The burgers were mediocre and the fries were soggy. Quinn liked them but she's a salt-aholic. Safe to say I'm disappointed.

Hot dogs, Philly cheese steaks, and burgers are shitty American foods?  Hamburger Helper or craft mac n cheese I understand, but I wouldn't call burgers, Phillies, or dogs shitty.  Maybe not exactly health food, but they all taste awesome!

Yeah I mean shitty as in not healthy, what I would consider junk food. Not that they aren't delicious or quality. Although hotdogs generally are shitty, some more than others depending on the sausage meat to processing ratio. 

If you mean shitty as in microwave meals, ham in a can, Oreos and confectionery I generally don't eat any of that. With the exception of chocolate every now and again. 

But burgers and cheese steaks can definitely be shitty in the way you mean depending on the quality of ingredients.

Now that you're all laughing at my (moronically juvenile) wit, I'll show myself out. But first...

Destiny Advises: Don't Eat Dicks

I'm here all week, folks. Two drink minimum and remember to tip your server.

I approve of all of these review headlines. :thumbsup: I feel like some sort of dick connoisseur. 

Mr. Destiny is either very lucky or very unlucky.

I have an ongoing love affair with ice cream. Today I tried Tillamook marionberry pie ice cream. 

Y'all... I was impressed. 10/10

Be careful. I hear that stuff can be like crack.

Anyone here familiar with Yatz?   Kind of a fast food cajun place.  They have a crawfish Étouffée that is super good.  

No, but that sound nifty. PHX is piss poor when it comes to Cajun food.  I'd almost give my left nut for a good bowl of jambalaya.

Tillamook everything is legit.

Tillamook is my favorite ice cream by far!

Must be good if you're willing to forgo a nut for it!

 

Googled jambalaya and it definitely looks nut sacrifice worthy

There’s nothing like really good jambalaya. There was briefly a Cajun restaurant run by people who were so Cajun you almost couldn’t understand them. It was delicious.
