THE BUFFALO BURGER-Homemade Burger w/ Buffalo Sauce, Bleu Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato &
Red Onion 7.75
Now this is what I ordered, a Philly Cheese Steak. This is hearty comfort food. This is delicious. The bread, perfect crumb and crust with just the right "pull" to rip the sandwich away from it's mother planet, the toothiness of the steak, the crunch of the onions and soft mouthiness of the cheese. If I was on death row I'd have to consider this a last meal option.

And now for the Chicken Parm. Same bread but now with a fried patty. Satan's seitan and May Wah's cutlets? It's just a soft bread, crunch, smoosh, and a gentle genteel marinara sauce. A touch of sweet tomato. No thoughts of falling off the vegan wagon if this is within reach!

Ah, and now the appetizers. 2 combo plates so we could cover all of the 4 kinds of wings. My favorite was all of them. There are 2 kinds of Mac N Cheese. One with nutritional yeast and the other with Daiya. Get the one with Daiya. The other tastes like it was nutritional yeast in a veggie broth. OK, but not my favorite. Daiya is thicker and cheesy like Mac and Cheese should be. I don't know which pic is which but they both LOOK the same.
The wings below, from left to right, are Southern Fried, Buffalo, and BBQ. The BBQ had a nice caramelization and slight char. They all reminded me of a place I used to live in long ago. (Hi Mom).

Of course I can't help myself when I see an empanada. Fried, no less ... or ... fried, of course. I am so able to be tempted. I have no self control, I crave, and I cave. But I've saved the last piece of decadence for later. Wait. This is only a 5 on the decadent scale and I have a 10 a little further down the page.
This empanada had a perfect amount of filling, meaning only a little bit dripped out. The hot sauce is really really good. (Read hot). And shmearing a bit of sour cream on the exposed innards before slathering with hot sauce was ... crunch, cool, hot, meaty. Yes, meaty. Ground bits of seitan in the chili make it reminiscent of ... chili. Which by the way, isn't hot but flavorful.
Oh, if they could put this in a bottle and sell it as a sex replacement.
Nah, wouldn't be the same. As sex. Or as an empanada.
If you look at the next picture and don't want to just take a bite of this ... you have to be dead.

Now someone at the table had to go and order the cheese fries. Why oh why? Why not get the chili cheese fries. Well, actually, it's not low fat for sure but since none of this has any cholesterol you can't even order it with a side of angioplasty!
When the friedscool and soak up this sauce, and you spray the basket with ketchup ... being hungry is no longer a reason to eat. I think this is Wiz sauce. Which, if you give me a billion dollars, I'll tell you what it is. Maybe.

Minty, thick, creamy, chocolaty and oh what a blast from the past. Here is where the meal finally topped 5,000 calories. (Just a guess). Anyway, my liquid cleanse starts today. Well, maybe tomorrow. I'm just glad there isn't a Foodswings on MY block or ...
THE BASIC SHAKE-Pistachio, Chocolate, Vanilla, Mint Chip, Coffee or Strawberry Regular 4 / Large 6. And yes, it's a large. What did you think I'd order?
