Last Monday WHO asked if I wanted to meet up for a drink. I hadn’t seen her in awhile so I was excited to see her, I wasn’t so excited to be going out on a week night though. I’m such an old lady at heart and thought I would get home way too late and be too tired. I was completely wrong on all accounts. I’m linking up with Jen over at Peas and Crayons to bring you a What I Ate
We met up outside and went in grabbing a spot at the bar. The beer menu there is two pages (small font) long so I was hoping that they had flights where I could try a ton of different beers. The bartender explained to me that they didn’t do flights because they liked all their beers to be served in the proper glass wear. I LOVE IT! As someone who works in the beer industry and tries to get people to experience beer properly this was awesome. I cheated on my company and ordered Namaste
It smelled awful, like spoiled milk or as I put it to WHO “cat puke” but the taste was fantastic, very light and slightly sweet. I was hoping that WHO would want to grab a bite to eat too since I didn’t have time to eat dinner before, she was game so we ordered two small plates to share.
The steak tartar was so good, the smeary egg and the spices with the buttery toasts made it something I could eat in mass quantity. I’m glad I didn’t though because I’m sure raw meat and eggs should be in moderation.
The Pierogis were also amazing. I used to hate these when my mom made them from frozen bags (sorry mama) but fresh ones are out of this world. My best friend Erin has a family recipe for them so I’m going to try and steal it from her. If she can’t be talked into it I know her Aunt will totally let me have it. (HI GINNY!!)
Another fun things was the bathroom doors.
They were the beer menu and each door was a different style.
I was so satisfied with the food and beer and my heart was so full from the quality time I spent with WHO that I went home and just felt content and happy.
What’s your favorite beer? I don’t know if I have found mine yet, but Franziskaner is a close runner up.
