Along one side of the restaurant is the kitchen and bar counter, the other side of the wall is equipped with half booths and large window bringing in natural light.
The #50 giant pretzel on 7x7 The Big Eats List is indeed GIANT, actually the size works well….for Big Foot. The pretzel was very hot, salted right and origami-ed with precision. The dish is served with stone ground mustard and homemade cheddar ale sauce. I was digging at the cheddar as it had a nice bitterness, I only wish I can cram the pretzel in my purse at the movie theatre.
The basket of fries served with chipotle ketchup, herb and curry aioli turned my world upside down. The basket was piled high like a mountain and after 30 mins two people didn’t make a noticeable dent. The sauces! The sauces was flavorful, the curry aioli was my favorite I wanted to slab the sauce on rice, hot dogs, hamburgers, chips…
*I would like to preface the pictures at Slow Club are dark because the restaurant was very dark and I didn’t want to ruin the mood with my camera flashing off.
I think I just found a worthy burger to put on a pedestal to compare the rest of my future burger endevours. Slow Club’s #6 hamburger and fries on 7x7 The Big Eats List is the highlight of my month. The meat was juicy and lightly patted together as it had a firm crust but the meat was soft. The red color on the meat qualifies for food porn and almost obscene to the eyes. The "Ron Jeremy" of a patty was on a bed of spring greens, tomatoes, grilled onions, ailoi and sandwiched with a sturdy bun.
We started off with a potato and leek soup with shoestring potatoes, a nice thin creamy soup with the potato as the supporting actor. The Egg Fettucine with vegetable was sauteed in a nice lemon butter sauce mixed with artichoke hearts, zucchini, and tomatoes. The pasta dish had thin loose curly texture and nice roasted vegetable to contrast the light sauce but because the burger was so amazing it didn't get the attention it deserved.
We ended the meal wishing we ordered a burger each but the pineapple bread pudding was a nice way to stop regret. The bread pudding had big chucks of caramelized pineapple in every bite, it would definitely qualify as food porn if it came with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
