Does anyone still following this blog???
Not surprised if this blog is but a distant memory in the blogosphere… despite my best attempts, 2014 wasn’t much of a blogging year. I did try to restart it with monthly updates on the other space, but even that trailed off towards the end of the year. The latest update can be found here.
I’m feeling a bit rusty with blogging and it feels a bit awkward (hopefully it doesn’t come across too much like that) but I think rather than overanalyse it, I’d better just start exercising the blogging muscles and give it a go…
Without going into a huge overshare about what’s been happening the last year, I’d like to share about a recent double date with one of our favourite couples, GR.
On our first double date we were keen to try out Fancy Hanks up near QVM, however, when we got there, they were closed for food orders so we vowed to return to try the American style food offerings.
So one sunny Sunday afternoon, we finally made it!
Now a tip for newcomers, order before you sit down for a chat. The wait time for ordering was about 30 minutes even though we had arrived at 6:00pm. I guess with only one person at the register, things can only go so fast!
By the time we got to the counter they had already sold out of the beef short ribs and the quarter beer can chook *sadface*… so we collectively ordered the rest of the meat on the menu and a serve of each of the salads PLUS a side of burnt end beans and a hush puppie (not the shoes!) *happydance*!
My favourite was definitely the pulled pork – very tender. I was also surprised by how much I enjoyed the beef sausage! The others thought the brisket was the real winner – looked like Chinese char siew to me hehe! Ribs were very tasty as well. I’m usually not a fan of coleslaw but this one was very refreshing with the addition of pomegranate. The burnt end beans side was also a highlight – it’s not just beans ;).
The atmosphere of the place is great as well with some live music at the start of the night – though a bit loud if you are going there to chat. They also have a separate bar section as well with plenty of drinks available to go down with all that meat!
Overall, pointers to take away:
- Get in early and order first before finding a seat.
- Do order: brisket, pulled pork, salads and burnt end beans.
- Don’t sit too close to the music if you want to talk (that’s a no-brainer really lol).
- Go in a group so you can try more of the different meats :D.
- Have fun!
Thanks GR for a great catch up :). #doubledate no. 3??
Oh and E for the recommend hehe.
