What did we do last week? Not much, we just built a restaurant. You know, then we drank some beer and thought a little harder about what would be cool to eat while we were drinking it. Typically, salty stuff, carby stuff, baked stuff, cheap stuff, deep fried stuff, fresh fruit. You know what sucks? Paying a lot of money for food that tastes like crap. You know what rules? Getting really good food that tastes like nothing you’ve ever had for not that much money.
We just opened up a micro-restaurant inside 285 Kent Ave, home of a new music venue, art space, Babycastles arcade, and also, it’s in the old “Paris London West Nile” space. We pretty much serve the best snacks. It’s dirt cheap, why even bother eating at home, you can eat here everyday, and probably save money, you know what I mean?
Here’s a taste of what our menu looks like:
Grape Kool-Aid Fritters $3
Waffle Grilled Cheese $3
Pizza Waffle Sandwich $4 or $5 w/pepperoni
Black Bean and Queso Muffins $2
BBQ Tofu Summer Rolls $2 or 3/$5
Spicy Boiled Peanuts $3
Lime Coconut Bars $2
Fat Watermelon Slice $1
Fruit Flavored Ice Pops 2/$1
We add new stuff almost everyday, so no one gets bored.
AND we open DAILY 8PM-1AM!!!!!! Who knows how long we can keep this up for!
Hear me BURP on the radio and talk about new recession proof cooking concepts:
Thank you Roberta’s for all the free pizza. I look forward to letting it harden, cutting it up into small pieces, re-toasting it, topping it with more cheese and sour cream, and serving it to my guests as a nacho platter.
I’ll be giving a very special presentation of videos and performance at the Silent Movie Theater in Los Angeles. Be there!!

On an excursion to the world’s oldest amusement park, Bakken, which is just outside of Copenhagen in Denmark, we were stimulated by many things, namely the French-Scandinavian cuisine! We had been hearing about the French-inspired take on the famous Danish pølser – a boiled hot dog, usually served with remoulade, a sweet mustard or ketchup, fried onions, and a bun. This new kind of food-fusion was available on nearly every street corner, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to indulge.
Jess was attracted to the giant ice cream cone, but Ben couldn’t be stopped by the sweet smell coming from the Grill.
But what should we choose?
So many choices!! Boiled? Grilled? Bun or no bun? Toppings? or … what’s this? a BAGUETTE?!?!?!
Could the choice be any clearer?

EXTREME CLOSE UP! Look how the dog is surrounded by baguette!
How do you say “unique” in French?
