Real Onion Rings, not the shavings that some places do as "loaves of stringy threads". Farmer Boys in SoCal does Rings that are 1" to 1 1/4" thick. You can get a real taste of the onion with the batter! Squash Spears Same concept here. We find places here and there that do ‘crosscut’ slices like pickle chips that are battered in a Tempura-like batter and fried. Those are good, but the long spears battered like the Onion Rings at FB’s are outstanding with your favorite dipping sauce. Mushroom Caps Same thing. Pickle Slices, both Dill and Sweet. I had never had these before coming to Louisville. Great with a Burger as another side treat.
Very Good Choices!!!!!!!!
I love them all, but add Fried or sauted Chicken Livers to that menu and I would think I had died and gone to Heaven.
Thank You, Mr Mayor, I can’t agree with You more!
For menu entree items…
I like to find good Liver and Onions. Too often the Liver is sliced 1/8th of an inch thick and fried hard. Nasty stuff. Give me a piece or two 3/4 inch thick or slightly more and cooked medium–not Medium Rare. Lots of grilled onions and bacon served with/on it.
I like Welsh Rarebit. HoJo’s used to have a pretty good version. Fresh Toast and double the Bacon then ladle the hot cheese sauce over it. A good Hot brown comes close, but the Cheese sauce in the W.R. seemed to be a bit ‘stronger’. Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage makes a great side dish for a lot of Meat and three kind of meals. I guess it is a holdover from my Czech upbringing. I love the stuff.
Lastly Avocado, in almost any form…Whole Sliced Mashed etc. I love them. Offer them as a Sandwich Condiment and I’ll order them every time.
