You know those light bulb moments? Those moments where you’re ticking along having a nice ol’ chat and suddenly realise “….Oh” and that light just pops on?
We went out to American Cupcake Diner with a couple of friends, Jess and Matt, who had recommended it, and I quickly realised that they recommended it on very good experience. It felt like every time I mentioned something “oh maybe I’ll get the…” it was followed by YES THAT’S AWESOME but try it with the waffle fries, or yeah it comes in a double stack, or you have to get the chilli cheese fries jumbo pack chicken sour cream mexican fiesta hat. You get the drift.
It did not take long for me to feel like we were noobs dining with seasoned veterans (there’s the lightbulb I mentioned earlier). I would liken to if I was to brag to someone in Anonymous about the fact I found some guys ABN once. Except there was no bragging just recommendations. Perhaps not the best comparison but hopefully you catch on.
Please don’t confuse the tone of this. It was 10/10 RAD getting to go with people who could tell us ideas, the menu was so huge and it all looked so good and deep fried and I wanted everything all at once. Seriously, the menu is HUGE. Not like a yeah girl it’s totally 8 inches kind of way, but in a very true you’ll need a wheelchair type way. I could go back there another 10 times and still not have tried half of it. The variation of burgers, hotdogs, mexican styles and desserts was epic. Some might say there was too much. I wouldn’t, but there are some crazy people out there.
They are great for vegetarians too with their vegedogs and vegepatties. Matt we were with is a vegetarian and opted for a mexican chilli dog - I’m pretty sure that’s what this is…
I was assured it tastes better than it looks. I had a photo of him two-hands-ing it but thought our friendship wasn’t strong enough to put that kind of thing on the world wide web yet. Jess had a burrito which looked super tasty but was devoured before an appropriate photo opp.
I got - seriously hold onto your hats here guys - a burger. I can hear your gasps from here, please, control yourselves. Paul also got - yep you guessed it - a burger. We had to keep it fried so I got cheese fries and he got onion rings to accompany the monster burgers. The store was nearly empty so I did eat the burger with my hands and watch it slowly fall apart as I tried to eat it with increasing speed. I know, I know, I would have eaten it that way even if the place was full but hey I felt better that no one had to see it.
As is unfortunately standard for me, I was well past full… and then we got dessert. A wise man once said - YOLO.
|Mmmm deep fried twinkie|
One more thing I will mention is - the food was not the quickest coming out. If you’re looking for some fast food diner experience I wouldn’t recommend it, but if you’ve got some time to spend and are looking for a good burger/deep fried errthang experience, I would definitely check it out.
