Food, glorious food
Considering they joy good food brings me, it is only logical that I review every new thing I taste here in the US. I endeavour to take a photo of every new food item I try, product or restaurant meal, and give it a rating out of 5 spoons. Let me know if you want me to try something specific.
On recommendation, or rather insistence from my friends Monique and Adam, we bought some cinnamon cereal last night. I love cinnamon. It is so comforting. So I did not object to this request. And I was not disappointed. Perfectly crunchy, not too sweet, not too spicy. It is worth noting that they are better enjoyed without milk. With milk it kind of feels like you are munching on a bowl of cinnamon powder. It gets 4 spoons out if 5.
It looks like Rooibos and smells like it, mostly. But it is just not quite Freshpack. I will get used to it. I better, it was freaken expensive for tea. Lets give it a 2 ½ spoons out of 5.
I don’t have my own photo for this one yet because we decided to stop here after some afternoon shopping (walking) in -13 ºC weather. The restaurant has modern diner style interior and you order from the counter. Your food gets delivered to your table and you get your own soda from the fountain, as much as you like.
We ordered the classic Smashburger: American cheese, lettuce, tomato, ketchup, onion, pickles and smash sauce on an egg bun. Your burger arrives at your table in a little basket, with the top part of the bun next to the open burger. This made it easy for me to remove the freshly sliced red onion and pickles. Next time I will design my own. It was surprisingly delicious. The patty is very similar to what you would find at Steers, just flattened, like someone hit it with a mallet, but not compressed like McDonalds. The lettuce leaf was not shredded and looked really fresh, or fake. The smash sauce tasted a bit like Big Mac sauce. All in all it was a hearty burger, with fresh toppings, which made me feel slightly less guilty. And the French fries were warm and crispy and not cardboardlike. 4 spoons.
