The boneless and skinless chicken breast from Blue Collar. I ordered a side of curried cauliflower (seriously good if you’re not intimidated by burping curry for the next two hours or on a date) and the kale (just downright amazing).
This meal had me eating my words after cursing this place for so many months after a first shitty experience.
Gastrodamus’s fav banh mi sandwich (he says the light, airy bread is what makes is so damn amazing) from Pho 78, the original… straight up mayo, pate, pickled carrots, onions, cilantro, and jalapeno. He drenches his in hoisin and loads of sriracha in order to reenact dragon scenes from GOT.
So after hearing so many people rave about Blue Collar, Gastrodamus and I decided to give it a second shot. The first time we went was its opening weekend and it was unarguably HORRENDOUS! My fish was bone dry and Gastrodamus’ burger tasted like Styrofoam. Oh and for some mysterious reason he ended up in the hospital as soon as we paid our bill. HA!
I’ll give it up to the upsets and hectic craziness of opening weekends because our second chance was quite good. We ordered the mac n’ cheese since everyone on foursquare couldn’t say enough about it. Not bad, but I still prefer my friend’s grandma’s southern recipe.
