Loki Lounge Brooklyn the definition of Chill

Last week, I had a unusual event in my life occur,  its called free time during the week. Lots of thought and deliberation  led me to Loki Lounge in Brooklyn.  Why you ask? Well I saw a picture of their  lamb flat bread on Instagram and wanted some for myself. THERE IS a reason why I am  called THE fat guy from Brooklyn! But seriously look at this beauty.

As soon as I walked into the Loki lounge there was a zinger of mellow energy. The bartender was super chill and friendly. Loki didn’t feel like a normal downtown Brooklyn bar all stuck up and careless.  You could tell the bartender cared about  what he was doing and the clients. I ordered a extra dirty martini to start the work session.

Mind you, there is a fireplace and I love fireplaces. Who doesn’t?

Little bits of ice floating on top of the martini made it look and taste   like something our of a movie. I would recommend the lamb flat bread to anyone that comes here its on point.

The order of shrimp griddles was okay though, the only issue was that there were to many greens and the picture came our shitty.I ordered shrimp not salad. Don’t give me that look I’m fat!

Loki Lounge shrimp griddlesOverall, I really enjoyed the place. Just a chill bar where you can have a drink and not get bothered. Even the people who just walked in for a drink were chill. Just super chill and friendly. Check it out peoples. You’ll like it. I will be back on a Sunday once they have a food menu.

How to Make Holiday White Sangria

White Holiday Sangria original How to Make Holiday White Sangria

A few weeks ago I was suffering the interwebs and spotted the image above. The first thought in my mind was wow that looks pretty dam good. The second after I read the recipe was ” yea this is watered down wine and its not going to get me white girl wasted”. If you like to be classy and control yourself her is the original recipe.

My version is purer and tastes better!  Warning watch out for the ROSEMARY I used too much and it came out well Rosemaryyyyyy and Herby.

INGREDIENTS

1 Granny Smith apple
1 Cup of Frozen Blueberrys
1 heaping Cup Fresh cranberries
1 large Sprig rosemary( If you are letting it sit over night then you may want to take it out, THIS shit is strong)
1 Bottle Pinot grigio
¼ cup sugar

Instructions

Chop the apples into bit size pieces

Cut the cranberries in half ( you can skip this if you dont like your sangria sour)

Add sugar to taste

Add wine mix and taste

Add frozen blueberries instead of ice. No one wants watered down wine!

Last STEP DRINK UP!!!

The Brooklyn Market Cheese Department is the SHIT

As you all know by now, I’m a fat ass. I love all food but my favorite is CHEESE. Why? Women love cheese, I love women therefore I love cheese makes sense in my head.  The hard part about cheese is finding a good spot to get it without paying a arm or a leg. After years of searching “European” styled market opened in Bay Ridge.

the brooklyn market

The Brooklyn Market located 8102 3rd Ave in Brooklyn is the SHIT. They have everything a fat ass could want from fresh bread to pre cooked food.  But the main reason why I go there is the CHEESE sampler packs. They have five types french, Italian, goat, Spanish and one more that I don’t remember.

The samplers are perfect for when you want a little bit of a few different types of cheese  but don’t want any left over from a large package.  You know, If you get a 5 different 1 pound package its going to be gone in 2 days no matter what and then you will feel ashamed of yourself.  Bad fat ass bad fat ass! A sampler is the best solution it has 5 different cheeses and its not that big of a package.  Go get some and enjoy.

 

Buffalo Cauliflower Recipe

buffalo cauliflower recipe

I want Buffalo WINGS! BADLY. But  yesterday I may have had a little to much too eat. ie a few square pizza slices,  Veal parm with spaghetti, a lamb gyro and  few beers. That was just dinner. Today I will have to be making up for all the face stuffing  by being good fatass. No wings for Fat guy from Brooklyn but he will be having buffalo cauliflower.   The original recipe was done by buff dudes.  I just kicked it up a little bit and made it more me. Like i always say cook for yourself. You don’t need to follow a recipe to the letter. IF you like more of something or less then just fucking do it. You are eating the food not someone else.

Buffalo Cauliflower Recipe Ingredients 

  • 1 Large (6-7 inch Diameter) Cauliflower
  • 3/4 Cup (240grams) Buffalo Sauce  ( I used a mix of Franks red hot and Tabasco
  • 1/4 Cup (57grams) Fat Free Plain Greek Yogurt 
  • 2 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • Salt & Pepper to taste (  I skipped this and used the Tabasco to taste cause well it is a Buffalo Cauliflower Recipe  not a Salt Cauliflower Recipe )
Buffalo Cauliflower Recipe  Instructions
Preheat your oven to 450.
Cut your cauliflower to a size that will keep you talking the least  otherwise known as bite sized.
In a small bowl combine your Buffalo Sauce, Yogurt and Garlic and whip it up until it’s well blended.
Slowly pour a third over your Cauliflower.  Mix it up, pour another third, mix and pour the last. You’ll want to do this because there’s lots of crevices in the Cauliflower and you want the sauce to cover and coat as much as you can.  The head of cauliflower that i used was too big to fit in to one bowl. Pre measure to make sure that you have enough sauce and space before you waste all of it in one shot
 Spread out the Cauliflower on wax paper
Sprinkle Salt and Pepper if you like.
Bake for 20 minutes then stir and wait 10 more minutes.
Then eat up.  AGAIN  this is food you will be eating  so make it for yourself. My  Buffalo Cauliflower Recipe used normal full fat yogurt. I have a daily caloric burn of almost twice as much as most people.  I only need to limit my caloric intake not starve myself.
