Ok, it’s the weekend and I’m posting two questions for you. Question one: do you think I should do these on the weekend or Wednesdays? I just thought I’d toss that out there to see if anyone answers. Now, on with the food! Question two:
What’s for dinner?
I’ll be honest. I didn’t cook dinner for myself. The kids got spaghetti and meatballs. You don’t need a pic of that! However…lunch was another story entirely.
I headed to Ann Arbor and asked Twitter where to go because I was in the mood for something new. Two people suggested Frita Batidos. (Thank you Tim and Miranda!) I looked at the menu, and as soon as I saw churros, knew exactly where I was going.
I went to the counter and asked what was photo worthy. After a few suggestions, I ordered the Gulf Shrimp sandwich and Churros sundae. (There’s a sign on the counter that says to order everything at once so you don’t have to get up again, so I did…big mistake! Too much food for just me!)
Anyway, wanna see the sammich?
"spiced and seared gulf shrimp with fresh cilantro oil, pea shoots, and Bermuda onions on brioche.”
I’ll be honest. I was a bit thrown off by this. There is a huge pile of those pea shoots to the left that I had pulled off so you could see those huge beautiful shrimp. When asked what I thought, I was honest, and they were super nice and replaced my sandwich with this amazing pulled pork sandwich instead.
This? This above? AMAZING..It’s also my dinner.
So much to see inside, I have to post it twice.
"Braised Berkshire shredded pork with sweet chili mayo topped with tropical cole slaw."
Oh…My..Goodness. This is amazing.
Why didn’t I have it for lunch? Easy. Remember when I said I ordered the sundae at the same time? Well, that was melting, and, I mean…LOOK AT IT!
Churros a la mode with caramel sauce.
Yes…I can’t…just…there’s no words.
Jamie came to check on me this time, and asked if I’d like to try their ginger lime water. In an “all things new” mode, I took her up on the offer and she came back with a sandwich bag full of liquid. Seriously, this is so refreshing, and reminded me of how they serve drinks in Thailand!
Yes, it’s a weird shot. I mean honestly though, how do you shoot a drink in a bag? There is one shot somewhere of me holding the iced coffee in a bag, but I’m not posting it here. ;)
So, what’s on your plate this weekend?
