let's talk about my FAVORITE restaurant chain in Brooklyn. 

PEACHES. PEACHES HOTHOUSE. 

i honestly cannot complain about a single thing about this restaurant. how about a story? 

one rainy humid night... my 15 friends visiting from out of town wanted to eat some bomb ass food. they asked what was my favorite restaurant in Brooklyn? they were staying in Bed Stuy... so it was kismet we happened to be in the same neighborhood. 

PROBLEM: i had 15 people with me. they couldn't accommodate that on a busy Saturday night at 8pm. i thought we would be out of luck. NO. 

we couldn't order via seamless, but i was able to call them to put in a order for 15 people. dude- if you could only imagine how hard that is! 

i walked in the pouring rain. like... pouring so hard that the rain splashed upwards. we walked into the bar area and the bartender knew we had an order. mainly because our order wasn't ready... the bartender poured us shots to kill the time. THAT'S SERVICE.

the food... OMG the food. every single thing i have ordered has never disappointed me. get the fried grits. get the fried green tomatoes. GET THE EFFING FRIED CHICKEN.

out of all the choices you have in Chinatown, why would you want to dine at Peking Duck House? well, it's safe. 

my asian friends would never pick this joint unless they were truly craving Peking Duck. however, we are smart enough to know that you can get duck for half of the price they charge here. again, why here? 

the service is good, the food is OK, the quality is slightly nicer and served in nice plates on white table cloths and the servers all wear a vest and tie. 

any place like Shun Lee and Peking Duck House i would never choose or take my friends to, but i also wouldn't object to it, either. 

the duck is tasty and the fries rice is good as well. i'm not a fan of the other dishes... especially the shrimp with walnuts. that's my favorite dish from other cantonese restos, but they really can't execute this dish at all.

how about a sexy dessert date in the middle of the afternoon? 

how about licking your spoon in front of your date? 

how about ooohing and ahhhing and moaning over your dessert? 

this is the kind of joint where you're pretty much comfortable about showing your date/friends/boo/family the more intimate foodie side of you. you will feel all types of ways being here. 

the Molten Chocolate Cake is mind blowing. i normally don't even order this kind of dessert, but my folks urged me to try it out. 

i left satisfied in multiple avenues of myself. LOL

the best Seattle-foodie-hipster shit i have ever experienced. i was beyond impressed by everything they offered on the menu. since my first visit, i have been back here 8x's. that's a lot, considering i do not live in Seattle, but in NYC.

let's talk about the Zach: 

a biscuit with a breaded fried chicken thigh, bacon, and egg, then sexually drizzled with sausage gravy. you have to wipe your hands and face constantly. this is the dirtiest and sexiest sandwich my FACE and stomach has ever encountered. 

the Hush Puppies are a winner. 

sometimes when i want something different, i'll get the Fried Green Tomato, Bacon, Remoulade, Egg Biscuit.

the service sucks, the servers themselves are lazy and slacking off, but you can't help but to keep coming back to Shari's. i really wish they would open one up in New York. i crave for their seasoned waffle fries and delicious biscuits and gravy.

back in high school, i used to skip school just to hang out with friends from other schools all day. coffee and dessert. delicious pancakes and salads. it was my favorite place to be. Shari's is slightly more expensive, but the quality and variety of the food makes up for it.

i like that they do little spin offs with their pies/cakes and re-create new menu items but keep the classics. 

OPEN 24 HOURS, kid.
