Eggrolls, standard operating proceedure. While they weren’t remarkable, they did hit the spot. The dipping sauce was righteous too.
Shrimp Something. Clank got this and didn’t share. Fuck that noise. She said it was good. I’m a hater, I got one scrimp.
Seafood Udong. I try to step on out there when I go to ethnic restaurants. So I did just that. It was lo mein noodles, shrimp veggies fish and some other stuff. It was spicy and had a fishy taste/smell. I’m no getting that again.
Overall I liked it. They had a great looking sushi list and their drink menu was big. I’ll go back if a group is going, I’m glad I tried it, but I’m not gonna volunteer Seoul again. I take that back, I’d go back for happy hour and the dumplings. Y’all.
Mexican food has got to be the highest profit margin food besides breakfast and Chinese. Brownings is some proud ass mofo’s. Pretty much everything is $10. I used my wolf vision and sniffed out the pork tamales and chicken quesadilla, both above pic. Pretty tasty but I’m here brotherhood and honesty. Town Pump tamales and quesadilla are way better. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it but shit. Guac tasted fresh AND righteous.
Watson ordered chili releno. He didn’t share a single bite but take a look at it. It looks like a cow patty with cheese. F that noise. Tina ate some non dairy bullshit and nailed me with a knowledge bomb. Evidentially Brownings is owned by a few banks and managed by some Texans. Honestly, fuck that noise.
There’s a pretty dope sushi joint up in the Heights called Fantastic China. The decor is pretty swag, but this one wall is red. Chinese red. I was in a debate with this blonde about the color, she was saying it orange but she is wrong, women.
I started the meal with wonton soup. It’s watery with pork filled dumplings. Get you some. Main course was combo fried rice and Kung-Fu chicken. Look, it was a bit pricey but the place is clean. I’ll go here again, I’ll bitch about prices again, etc.
That being said, last weekend I had the pleasure of patronizing the most pretentious sushi restaurant in town, Sushi Cafe. Here are some facts about Sushi Cafe and the surrounding area in a really long run-on sentence. Sushi Cafe is located in The Heights which is home to liberals, hipsters, and rich people who rarely venture down Cantrell Hill and certainly never across the river to NLR because that’s Dogtown and it’s fucking trash and the property in The Heights is really expensive and the kids drive golf carts they have a DOG BAKERY and Sushi Cafe plays top 40 hip hop and R&B which is ironic because hipsters liberals and rich people hate that music. The Sushi at this place is top notch. My plate and beer and edamame, $35. Quail Eggs, Red Snapper Nigiri, Tuna Roll. and Salmon Sashimi y’all. If you are pissed off at your money and want to burn it, you could do it here easily. You want to break into your woman’s pants? Take her here. If that doesn’t work, chloroform.
There’s a certain stuffiness that comes with The Heights, I mean money. They’re fucking synonymous. Put that four syllable word on you pipe and smoke it. So yeah, The Heights is stuffy. So why would you blue collar fucks want to go to this part of town? In a word, a bar. Enter local bar Cheer’s. It’s not quite like the TV show bar, but it is comfortable and inviting. My ma and I went there for a light dinner yesterday and grabbed a round.
Observe that Gin and Tonic. Could be the stupidest piece of drinkware I’ve ever seen.
Now feast your jealous eyes on this this creation. One of the specials on the chalkboard is sitting on that plate. Fried Green Tomatoes
Shitting at bars, overrated.
This is an old school barber shop at it’s finest. Polar opposite of the king of fades. Old men talking shot about sports & politics. Checking out women as they pass by. I love this place.
Look at this decor. You like mounted animals? Of course you do. You need your shoes shined? Probably, they do that too. They don’t make barber shops like this anymore.
Smoked turkey on rye. Srirachi and the fixings. I seriously thought this was a great sandwich. Outfuckingstanding.
