Welcome to our first #FoodieFriday post!
Check back with us every Friday to see what we have to share with you that’s food related! It may be sharing a recent visit to a local restaurant, or a recent dinner prepared by my own personal chef (AKA, my husband), or (if you’re unlucky) myself.
Our first post will feature one of our favorite local restaurants, Slater’s 50/50. If you’re in San Diego and haven’t checked them out, you don’t know what you’re missing. Well, unless you’re vegan, in which case, you may want to bypass this, but really…it’s still pretty amazing. Actually, #Slaters5050 isn’t just local…they have several locations all over Southern California, and are drastically expanding.
With over a hundred draft beers (mainly craft) on tap, this place is incredible. Join them for their happy hour specials (currently 3:00-6:00 Mon-Fri and 10pm-close Sun-Thurs), you’ll be even happier.
And if the beer selection isn’t enough to bring you in, their 50/50 patty is sure to do the job.
What’s a 50/50 patty? Only heaven on a bun! It’s 50% ground beef, and 50%…wait for it…BACON. But if bacon isn’t on your top 10 favorite things of this world list, they do have MANY other options including turkey, and portabello mushrooms caps.
And although the have some pretty amazing burger creations, what I love about it is their “build your own” option. The options are endless. You could got 1000 times and not get the same exact burger if you wanted to. Plus, there’s always their Burger of the Month. This is always my husband’s favorite. I’m pretty sure he plans his year around these things…
BTW, this month’s burger was called Spice & Swine…absolutely delicious!
And if burgers aren’t your thing, there are many other options including awesome mac and cheeses, different flavored wings, salads, and many other choices.
So here are a few shots from our visit the other night, but be sure to visit their website http://www.slaters5050.com for a full menu, up to date specials, and a little more about their background and mission.
And don’t forget to visit us every Friday for our newest #FoodieFriday post. Next week, it’ll be a special from my kitchen, and maybe even a recipe to share…we’ll see…
