Meaty Cheesy Bread Pulls

Description

Bitches Love Cheese, I love Bitches therefor I love Cheese!

Bitches also LOVE Fatty meat! I love Bitches! I give them bitches some of my SPECIAL fatty meat…..

You want more of a explanation?  I’m fat! I like cheesy fat bready food.

Ingredients

1 round or oval sourdough bread loaf (1 lb)

1 pkg  of Fresh Mozzarella  how many ounces? AS MANY AS YOU THINK YOU CAN STUFF INTO THE BREAD! ( I used about 12 ounces you can use more or less accordings to your taste. )

12 ounces of salami, capicola and  prosciutto  ( I did equal parts of each )

1/4 cup butter, melted

1 green onion, thinly sliced

6 cloves garlic, minced ( if you both eat it then you wont taste it )

Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Use serrated knife to make vertical cuts, 1 inch apart, in top of bread loaf, being careful not to cut through to bottom of loaf.  Turn bread 1/4 turn; repeat cuts.

Cut the cheese into 1/4 inch logs and stuff it into the bread!

Slice the meat into strips and render over a medium flame. Remove once crispy

NOW YOU SEE ALL THAT GOOD FAT IN THE PAN????  BROWN  YOUR GARLIC ON THAT BITCH!

Should Look like this people

Place loaf on large sheet of foil.

Mix remaining ingredients; drizzle AND STUFF over bread.  Wrap bread with foil; place on baking sheet.

Bake 25 minutes or until heated through, unwrapping read after 15 minutes

BAM then you got yourself some good shit! I recommend a nice bottle of malbec and handcuff as a pairing.

 

 

 

Il Mulino Prime

As you walk into Il Mulino Prime (331 W Broadway), you cannot miss the beautiful the decor and the pure essence of pretentiousness.  But as the old saying goes you can’t judge a book by its cover; Il Mulino Prime is a perfect example of that quote.  The pretentious atmosphere only exists because it’s in the heart of Soho, if it was anywhere else it would stylize in a more traditional non-

modern fashion.  But in all honesty that’s the only fault I could find in Il Mulino Prime.  The staff is beyond fantastic, Bruno, the head bartender or waiter whatever you want to call him is the nicest guy you’ll ever encounter.  He’s a superb example a good old-fashioned waiter should behave.  He brings an old school Brooklyn feeling with a little bit of an Italian accent.  He is the perfect example of what a waiter should be in my opinion.  He offsets the modern decor with a feeling of home; He brings the essence of Italian food to the table without losing the elegance of the food.  But what does that mean?

Italian food as a whole is designed for family-style eating.  Yes, Italian restaurants can have single portions, but if you look at any famous Italian restaurant in New York City the menu is designed for family-style large portions, large plates, large groups loud of PEOPLE TALKING to each other, and eating together as a family.  The problem comes down this style restaurant would not work in Soho.   Modern fashion, luxury and elegance are a must for the survival of the business in Soho.  The menu at Il Mulino Prime is no

exception to this demand for style.  All the dishes are carefully thought out.  Every single item on the plate is one the plate for a reason.  Even the lemon on the side of the seafood dishes is carefully wrapped in fabric so that your food is protected from the possibility of any lemon seeds touches it.  The attention to detail is matched by very few restaurants that I’ve ever been to in my life.  But the food is only half the battle.  The staff at the location is the other half.  Just because you have great food and decor doesn’t mean that a restaurant will survive New York City.  There are hundreds upon hundreds of restaurants in New York City that fail every year

because they’re missing that one piece.  In Il Mulino Prime’s case the staffing was carefully selected to allow patrons opportunity to interact with someone who’s both sweet and professional at the same time.  Bruno is able to have a quick joke with the patron but still knows the menu inside and out. He still knows the wine list.  He still knows all the information you need to become a more educated patron of the restaurant.  Bruno does this all without being overly cocky and offsetting.  Is this not a perfect combination for a waiter?

Now, what you have all been waiting for the food and a review of the $25 lunch special.  I’ve honestly had about 85% of the menu and have the pictures to prove it.  Instead of going item by item I will be going over my favorites and then just posting the remaining pictures. All of the dishes taste great.   For those of you who do not know about the $25 lunch prix fix at Il Mulino Prime is a special menu during the hours of 12 pm – 4 pm .  It allows you to order one appetizer, one dessert and one entrée for the low low price of $25.  Yes, a full meal to in the heart of Soho for only $25.

My favorite combination for lunch is the beefsteak salad, the wild salmon over asparagus and (finally the best of everything) cheesecake with a little bit of whipped cream on the side.  Why is this favorite combination you’re asking?  I like the large portions of bacon and tomatoes and it have  a  little vinaigrette -boom your mouth is set full of flavor and it’s semi-healthy.  Seriously look at the portions of bacon on top of that salad, how can you say no?  The wild salmon on the other hand is perfectly cooked.  It’s both healthy, clean, and will get me ready for the summer.  You know, I’m going to have a six pack…  Of beer.  Why I am selecting the cheesecake for my dessert? If you don’t know you shouldn’t be reading this blog. Cheesecake is the best shit on earth. In all honesty there is no bad combination of the menu it is all about what you like and want to eat at the moment.

Next time you’re in Soho or Chinatown or anywhere in the downtown area, you should really check out Il Mulino Prime.  It’s one of the best spots that you can have lunch and not feel raped by the price of the meal.  See below for all the desserts!

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge

Can you teach an old Dog new Tricks; I don’t know most likely. Dogs are smarter than most the people I interact with on a daily biases. What I do know is that the re-branding of Circles café into Gulf Coast Bay Ridge (310 Bay Ridge Avenue) was a brilliant idea. The neighborhood was missing: Jamaican accent: some Island Flavor Mon. Is it real Island flavor? No, it’s flavored towards the neighborhood. If you want some hardcore ass jerked shit then take your ass to Myrtle Avenue. There you will find some good ox tail, jerked chicken, half the items sold out and your asshole on fire. Gulf Coast is targeting the neighborhood it is in Bay Ridge. I am not Knocking the food just laying it all out. The Food was good.

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge Cajun CalaMari

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge’ Cajun Calamari this is the shit you have to try it. The combination of sauces and Cajun spices blend perfectly. The dish comes out to be externally  well balances and the texture is great. Its not greasy or rubbery. What more can you ask for? Besides another drink…..

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge Zombie Of course I ordered a  zombie. Did you expect me to be on the wagon? Seriously have you read any of my other posts?

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge Coconut shrip   Gulf Coast Coconut shrimp was good. Honestly its a little hard to live up to the expectation that the calamari created. They were good and I would order them again and most likely every time.

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge Drunken Crawfish Pasta

My  entree was  Drunken Crawfish Pasta very flavorful and had some  kick to it. This isn’t your grandmothers pasta It has heat. IF you don’t like heat don’t get it! (I am measuring a white people spice scale.)

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge apple pie

Last but not least was the warm apple pie with ice cream on the side. Its apple pie with ice cream how the fuck can this be bad in any way? Like seriously I have never had a apple pie that I didn’t like!

Gulf Coast Bay Ridge should definitely be on your list of restaurants to try. The food is good, the drinks strong and it  not your  everyday Bay Ridge food. You can have burgers, wings, beer and pizza only so often before you get feed up with them. ‘

 

Death Wish Coffee Review

I love Coffee. NO Really. I love coffee more then you can ever know. You want a example? The people that I work with no NOT talk to me unless I have had my first/ second coffee. All this led me to trying   Death Wish Coffee. We all heard the hype. Twice the caffeine and yea twice the caffeine i don’t give a rats ass about anything else.

Death Wish Ground Coffee, The World’s Strongest Coffee, Fair Trade and USDA Certified Organic – 16 Ounce Bag

I was pleasantly shocked when the first cup of death wish coffee did not taste like shit. Hell it tasted better then Starbucks coffee.  That flavor you taste from Starbucks’s coffee is the flavor of burnt coffee. STOP DRINKING THAT SHIT. Death wish makes Starbucks tastes like water.  The flavor of  smooth and well balanced  externally similar to a Colombian blend. The flavor is Bold crisp and to the point. I drink my coffee black. The flavor spectrum in Death wish coffee is nuts bold but not over powering. Most people will add flavored milk to it.

 

The caffeine Level is a God send no joke . Lasts twice as long and you dont crash.
Death Wish Coffee Review

Buy this shit! Its good. Smooth and flavorful. I did not get the jitters and i was bale to sleep after 4 hours.

Here what they say,

“We went on a mission to find a coffee that is not only dark, rich, bold and flavorful but also has high caffeine content. We started our search online and came up empty handed. Then we researched coffee varietals, roast shades, and picked the brains of our roasters. After a bit of debate, a lot of testing, and caffeine overload we perfected our brew. Death Wish Coffee was born in late 2011. It is organically grown, fairly traded, and expertly handled. Our roasting team has over 70 years of combined roasting experience.”

I agree Death wish Coffee knows what they are doing and you NEED to try it.

Drink that shit! DRINK IT.

Coffee RX Lab in Bay Ridge

Coffee RX Lab Bay Ridge Belgian Waffles

My latest adventure of fatassness has led me to find Coffee RX Lab in Bay Ridge. See that shit in the picture above? Those sexy Belgian waffles were only $8. THAT’S RIGHT. 8 FUCKING bucks for a Belgian Waffle covered in Nutella , whipped cream and berries. It looks as good as it tastes.  People that is one sick deal! Coffee RX Lab Bay Ridge didn’t even go cheap on the indigents either; (Everything is fresh and made while you wait). The coffee is good also but I am a DD guy. I need 32 ounces of iced coffee in morning before anyone can even talk to me. Check out Coffee RX Lab Bay Ridge its good good spot to grab a quick snack and get going. Only issue I had with it was the hipsters….. they were nesting there… hours at a time….. THEY WERE EVERY WHERE… THE HORROR.  My advise run in, order and run out before they try to covert you to join them.  If you want to read more about it you can find it in this article.

SEE I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT CALLED THEM HIPSTERS.

AT LEAST THERE IS NO SMELL!!

Fridays Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Waste of money

Fridays Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Waste of money

They look great, sound great and in theory are supposed to be great! But Fridays Bacon Wrapped  Jalapenos are a complete waste of money. 15 bucks for 4 pieces and they weren’t even warm! Top it off they came at the same time as the potato skins below.  The Fridays Bacon Wrapped  Jalapeno  did not even come close to cover the same amount of space on a plate. Hell they barely covered a 1/3. fridays potato skins

Top it off  the jalapenos were not even whole pieces. They were halves. HAVLES like no you cant have a whole one they are too expensive.  How much can one whole jalapeno cost 30 cents?

Its completely ridiculous.

I’m paying $15 for a plate at FRIDAYS. I better get some then 4 piece of food.   Who was the genius behind this? They should be fired.

Cocoa Grinder

There is a new player on the Bay Ridge Brooklyn healthy restaurant scene, Cocoa Grinder. (I was  not aware  of the old location on 4th avenue location prior to the opening of the new location on 3rd avenue in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn ) The new location on 8511 3rd ave (Brooklyn) is decorated very nicely with a clean modern look. I love the hammer for a  door handle.  ( Plays with your head the first few times that you see it) Do you know what  attracts me  to Cocoa Grinders  ? Iron Extreme apple, carrot, broccoli, kale, beet & spinach. That shit is my DRINK!  Normally I would have to  make a custom order for that drink and the server’s ALWAYS FUCKS IT UP.  But not at the Cocoa Grinder which makes me one happy fat guy.

Cocoa Grinder Bay Ridge Iron Extreme juice
Cocoa Grinder Iron Extreme juice

The staff  really does cares about the products they are serving, even washes down the machine after ever USE. You  would think that washing the juicer is a normal thing in all juice bars right? WRONG, ever had a taste orange when you didn’t order orange? YUP the bitchs didn’t wash the machine after the last customer.

In my opinion Cocoa Grinder is better then all the other juice bars  that  I have tried in the neighborhood.

NOW MY RANT. This has nothing to with Cocoa Grinder just some of the customers that were there today. But it  happens  in every  juice bar  I have ever visited. STOP Fucking ordering smoothies and saying that they are fucking healthy. GET A Fucking Complete fresh squeezed JUICE. What do I mean by complete? A juice that has a wide a ray of  vitamins and minerals. You DO need those to stay healthy. Not just the big 4.  I had to listen to these chicks  talk about how healthy smoothies are,  that they blah blah blah this and that. No. Please. Stop your stupidity. Just get a juice. Juices taste just as good if not better as smoothies.  They also  do not contain any milk or processed ingredients and normally are less sugar. Its not only yogurt Dumb ass. Its LOW FAT yogurt (in most places) how do you think they make it low fat? There is NO such thing as a LOW FAT COWs.

Lets do this another way. Compare a strawberry banana smoothie to a Iron Extreme. These are all estimated number that you can get from the web if you doubt me each has been linked in the title. The nutritional information below does not represent the national information for Cocoa Grinder.

First up!! The Strawberry Banana smoothie

Return of the Bon Chovie

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not One drop of  booze   was left not even a alehouse.
The texts were sent out with great care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.

To drink a few rounds and have a few shots.

And maybe find a few trots…

Cause well yea that’s what we do here in Brooklyn.

But seriously I was out of booze and wanted something to eat. The only choice that was left was going down to 3rd avenue for some food. That whole week was a cluster fuck of dinners and events. I needed something Light, fast and clean to keep this god like body you know. ( Bacchus was a god) Only one think popped into my mind Bon Chovie. That’s right Return of the Bon Chovie!!!

Its my site and I will write about ANY restaurant  or Topic I want to at the time. Shut you mouth and don’t bitch that I already wrote about it.

Bon chovie is Good CLEAN FOOD. WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO SAY? NO?  What do you think I will only go there once and never visit again? I didn’t even eat everything on the menu.

Bon chovie Grilled Mahi Tacos

Grilled Mahi Tacos(Two tacos served on warm flour tortillas topped with homemade mango salsa, shredded cabbage and lime mayo. Served with tortilla chips.)  Tacos….Tacos…. Taaacooooosss. I wanted tacos and I got them.  AGAIN WHAT IS THE COMMON THEME WITH Bon Chovie? FRESH AND CLEAN. All the Flavors were on point. None of the dishes were over powered by a fish taste.

Bon Chovie Surf and Turf

Surf and turf burger. One part burger one part lobster. THAT’S RIGHT SAME AMOUNT OF LOBSTER AS BEEF. Let me sum up the flavors. Once the great tasting beef is one you as a tease. the lobster slowly come up and fucks your taste buds till they cum.  ( meh you say try it then meh)Bon Chovie tater tots

See these bitches?? That are Called Tater Tots if you can get them instead of fries DO they are WAY WAY better tastings and the sauce  refreshes your taste buds.

Something pretty cool happened here the night that i stopped by. The owner figured out who I was on IG and on here. DAM it I need to wear a costume from now on…..
