We originally went to the Brooklyn bowl to attend the third day of the Pitchfork Offline Festival. We got really hungry and ended up eating at the place which featured some great eats. I ordered the fried catfish with corn tartar on ciabatta. The catfish was fried really well having a very crunchy exterior which complimented well with the hard texture of the ciabatta bread.

Cindy had the bbq beef with slo-roast brisket, pickles, and sweet-n-spicy gravy. The sweet and spicy gravy gave it a unique flavor which was also very good. We finished the food off with some tasty pale ales on draught.

Don’t let the name fool you. This is a Korean Chinese Fusion restaurant. They use a lot of Chinese base ingredients and mix it up with Korean spices to fit the taste buds of native Koreans. Eating at places like this brings up a lot of childhood memories. Although I did eat jjajjangmyun (noodles in black bean sauce), I did not take a picture.

The main dish I had was the jumbo shrimp ggangpoongi. The jumbo shrimp is fried and breaded with numerous amount of spices which I cannot name. It was extremely tasty and also had a soft but crunchy texture. I know I am contradicting myself but you would have to taste it to really know what I am saying.

Fried chicken fried in olive oil.  Has a wonderful aroma when biting into it and also tastes really good.  Almost has a deep nutty flavor to it because of the olive oil.  Came out very crispy and juicy.  Highly recommended!

I met some of my closest buddies that I haven’t seen in months at a New York City bar called Jack’s Restaurant & Bar for happy hour.  It was a cozy place and a welcome escape from the heat outside.  We ordered some drinks and naturally, me and my girlfriend got hungry so we decided to order some bar food (called tapas).

The menu had a wide variety of bar food, from all American choices (wings, fries, etc.) to Asian inspired treats. The prices ranged from $9 to $11, which was not bad considering the area we were in. We ordered three “tapas” and they all came on one huge plate.  The top most dish going clockwise is the chipotle chicken wings with blue cheese dipping sauce, blue cornmeal fried calamari with spicy sweet dipping sauce, and the lamb curry & mint empanadas with chipotle aioli dipping sauce.

The meal was great, with the exception of the incredibly dry chicken wings. The crowd favorite was definitely the blue cornmeal calamari which was complimented very well with the sweet and spicy dipping sauce. Washing my food down with a cold bottle of Bud Light  did nothing but make the experience much better. If you are ever in the area, check out Jack’s Restaurant & Bar, but make sure you don’t get the wings.
