As I’ve mentioned in the past, Midtown Lunch Happy Hours are kind of my thing 😉 – from the last three we’ve had, the food…
May was at Snafu, a lovely bar that is ‘bring your own food’ – so we did! Dried squid/cuttlefish…
various mochi offerings
Chewy and sweet!
Coffee rubbed chili pork belly
omfg the best damn stromboli you’ll ever eat, and she individually wrapped pieces for us to snag <3
Do you see how much junk food is on the table in front of us???
Chicken from Pio Pio
Pizza from Certe
The same amazing woman who made us all delicious stromboli also brought a huge tray of baked ziti, omgz yums.
Sooo good! Casey, you are amazing! <3
Our next happy hour ended with us trooping across the street to grab some grub from another pub. Someone’s calamari salad.
Someone’s ridiculous burger.
My ridiculous salad. Which was not good. That shell was super oily and not tasty, and the salad was just… weird.
Someone else’s burger.
The burgers looked good at least…
And the most recent one at Shorty’s. This was my Shorty cheesesteak, wit whiz (with onions and Cheez Whiz).
Compared to my hand for size reference. $6 – the size is not bad. But something was off. Am I too picky? The bread wasn’t very good for the cheesesteak, and overall, I felt it was pretty lacking. I don’t mean in size – I was fine paying $6 for this size, but after the Cheesesteak Chowdown, I just wanted a better cheesesteak than this. If it didn’t call itself a cheesesteak, I might forgive it some of its sins. But as it is, even as a simple steak and cheese sandwich, I was dissatisfied.
Oh well, these are just some of the things I’ve eaten at ML HHs… not really a review. Except for Shorty’s. I don’t like them. They also didn’t have AC. Ohhh, and it’s a Phillies bar (duh). 😛 Hahaha.
Yvo says: Snafu = win, love the lounge area upstairs and the BYO food; whatever that second place was (across from Snafu, some pub – someone help me out with the name?) = wack, and Shorty’s = pass!
