Lunch Talk ONLY

A hit-or-miss hodgepode of hyperbolicism...

Last week some friends dragged me along to Mongolian BBQ, and I liked it enough to make the trip again today.

It's a cool concept. You get a bowl and load it up with noodles, meat (beef, chicken or pork) and assorted vegatables, and you make your own sauce, from about 15 or so ingredients.

Then you hand it to the cooks and they grill it for you right in front of you. It's pretty good.

I had the Italian Combo at Panera Bread today. Absolute greatness. I really liked that place.

I've only heard good things about Mongolian BBQ. And Thai Food. Those are the two "foreign" cuisines I need to try.

I'll have to try the Italian Combo. From now on my sandwiches are going to be on French Baggette or Sourdough Baggette bread.

Good news for me.

Swadleys is opening a new location Feb 23 in Southwest OKC. I ate at their Northside location today. It's the best BBQ that I've ever eaten. They now have a brisket or chicken quesadilla (sp?) on the menu. I got a half-n-half. Man was it delicious. I could barely eat it all. They pack it full of meat.

I've found two really good Italian restaurants lately.

At one, Flips, I had eggnoodles with Clam sauce. It was delicious and they didn't skip on the clams.

The other was Portabellos. It's only been open 3 days. I had the chicken parmigiana. Damn, I can never remember how to spell that word. Anyway it was excellent.

My friend had the mushroom lasagna. It's not something that I would typically order, but it looked really good. He said it was delicious.

I'm headed to maudie's today, home of Austin's best Cheese Enchiladas.

I think I'm getting the fajitas, though.

This is the second straight Friday that Mexican has been on the menu. Last week we went to Ninfa's.

I went by Roberts Meat Market today for the very first time. I've eaten some of their sausage before at some peoples house one time during a cookout. It was delicious.

Anyway, this was my very first time to go there. I got some fresh homemade hot links and polish sausage for tonights cookout out at the hunting lodge. Everyone else will be eating hot dogs. I don't really like hotdogs that much.

I didn't buy much only about 5 dollars worth. I noticed a different colored sausage than the others and started asking about it. The owner said it was a beef sausage that he makes for people that don't care for pork. I asked him if it was any good. He then pulled out a couple of them and put them in my bag for free.

I really like it when people do nice things like that. The world needs more people like that. He didn't have to do it. But now, he has a new customer for life.

Maudies might have the worst fajitas in the world.

I was beyond disappointed.

Two bad Mexican food experiences this week.

1) Got the duluxe party pack take out from Cocina De Minos Sunday for Lunch. They forgot to include the 24 tortillas that come with the pack. How in the hell are you supposed to eat your fajitas. Luckily, I had 5 flour tortillas in the fridge. I called and complained. They gave me a $25 gift certificate the next day.

2) I ordered some cheese enchiladas at Alvarados tonight. They were just above room temperature. f that. I didn't complain. I should have.

I like San Marcos on SW 59th street. They treat you right everytime.

I was in the mood for a salad today. I went to The Gourmet Deli. I had spotted one of their chef salads on an earlier trip.

It was piled high with thinly sliced shaved smoked ham and turkey. Seriously, I could have made two sandwiches with the amount of ham and turkey that they put on the salad. They also put a great deal of shredded cheese on it as well. I like to have cheese on my salad. I also like to eat saltine crackers with my salad.

It was delicious.

The price????? The chef salad only cost $4.99. What a deal.

OKC Longhorn

They opened a new Swadley BBQ on 89th & S Western in the old A&W spot by Hobby Lobby. You need to try it. It's excellent. Make sure you try their ribs. Best ribs that I've ever eaten. Also get their campfire taters as one of your sides.

I had Olive Garden today. I haven't been there in probably 3-4 years. I didn't care for their new over friendly "we are family" attitude. It was too nice. It was borderline fake. I appreciated their effort, but I got sick and tired of it real quick.

I'm not big on it either. It wasn't my choice, and I didn't have to buy.

Now that is just odd. I had Olive Garden today for the first time in forever. It was someone's birthday at work and that is where they chose to go.

Their chicken parmiagiana is good. And they have good salad and breadsticks.

The salad is pretty good.

I just have this thing against national chain restaurants.

I like to support the local guys.

I embrace the chain just to spite the anti-chain people. :badgrin:

I had TGI Fridays the other day. My wife had the Jack Daniels chicken. It was delicious. I had the peppercorn hamburger. It was delicious as well. Service sucked ass, but the food was pretty damn good. I don't care for nachos where they serve spaced out single chips with beans, cheese, etc. put on them. I like my nachos chips in a pile with everything thrown on top.

I had PF Chang's for lunch today. I am not exaggerating in any sort when I say there were no less than 5 hot chicks sitting around my table in a small seating area of about 8 tables or so.

I love Northpark.

PF Changs is usually known for having the trim. I don't know what Thursday nights are like up there at the Changs in Dallas but if they are anything like the Thursday nights at the one in River Oaks :shock: trim central.

For lunch I had Kim Son and their Orange Beef. That stuff is pure greatness.
