  1. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    No worries, I spaced one night between visits. Didn't know about the lard- must be why that chicken is so damn tasty. The biscuits, too. And I was marveling at that apple pie while I was eating it in the parking lot, staring at it thinking how amazing it is they can sell something like that for 1 buck!

    Another 7 from Popeye's, with apple pie. Hard to stay away.

    7 slices of cheese pizza.

    The extra 9 makes a difference!

    Number 7 at Popeye's- that is a 5 piece chicken tender meal, mash with gravy and a biscuit (I also ordered a warm apple pie for a buck). All together $11.69. I'd give it a 4/5 stars.

    Lemon sole, pan fried in butter, roasted potatoes and spinach. Tomorrow, Popeye's.

    I ate a salad then washed it down with a bowl of wheat thins in coconut milk.

    Noted. Next time I walk through the square, the bell will ring! We also just received a Popeye near where I live in Connecticut, which I mean to try very soon. I haven't been to New Jersey in maybe 5 years, and, since I am without a car, could only meet you in NYC, which I would enjoy. I love walking through that city.

    Those ham grinders up there look delicious. Can't even remember the last time I had a good grinder.

    What I've had of the regular menu is pretty tasty: chicken chalupa, crunchwrap supreme, and the favorite of my teenage years was the gordita crunch. Last night was my first time at a Taco Bell in about a year. I don't think I've ever seen one in NYC, but seeking one out seems to me an optimally good use of your time. In fact, years ago, my friend and I drove around in New Jersey/New York area for about 3 hours looking for a Taco Bell. We never did find one.

    I was pretty disappointed. The commercial made them appear much larger than they were. They are also, in fact, not a lovely, bright orange color as portrayed, but an insipid sort of blend of jaundice yellow and bio-hazard green. The taste was not nacho-ie, but rather like some french fries that got a sprinkle of McCormick's chili seasoning that has been sitting opened in your cupboard since the late '80s; additionally, spiked with some sort of sweetening agent, that just further obscures whatever these atrocities were meant to be. They are served with a warm cheese sauce, that I will say was not altogether unpleasant.

    The nacho fries at Taco bell seemed so much better on TV.
