U-MA-MI looks SO-YUM-MY Deep Fried Onion? Hmm I guess “she go”
I would eat the chicken heart!
@Melissa808 Hand me the chicken gizzards please
@Ynaku oh! oh! I’ll fight you for the gizzards!
@Melissa808 @Ynaku What is chicken heart supposed to taste like? Please don’t say chicken. 🙂
@Cat @Ynaku LOL it doesn’t …. it tastes like animal parts, a little crunchy. Gizzards are crunchy, too. (Liver is not.)
I’ve been there a handful of times now, and admittedly, the food does take a while to come out.
If you do have it bookmarked to go back, I’d suggest two things:
– Tomato & bacon, grilled. When it’s fried, it was delicious. When it was grilled … OH MAN. You get more of a pronounced bacon flavor IMO and why *wouldn’t* you want more bacon flavor? Plus, you get the added benefit of not having molten lava pour into your mouth as you bite into the grape tomato. Well, less so than the fried version.
– Pokedon. It’s pricey at $12, but it’s really delicious.
sounds like a must-try, esp for the bacon-tomato and… doesn’t this look pretty much like frito misto on sticks? (yay)
how much wd u estimate per person w/o drinks?
@nonstopmari Hmm. I think we spent about $60 total, including drinks. Which isn’t bad. Depends on how hungry you are. That’s the best thing about this concept: you eat as you go. You’re not stuck with too much food!
in the future all food will come on sticks and be sold from a truck. because, isn’t life just a big county fair? and in the end we wind up sick, broke, and with nothing but a really, really big pink stuffed rabbit.
