Well folks, we are wrapping up another fun filled week here at Eat Arkansas. For myself, this week past has been filled with spectacular bites as well as some rather disappointing (and at times, horrific) dining experiences. This was, of course, the week that our dear friend, Kevin Shalin, risked his life for the sake of a Red Lobster Cheddar Bay biscuit, and nearly lost it in an attempt to break a world record. I don’t even know where to start with this story, but suffice it to say, this thing was big, REAL big. (Kudos to Rock City Times.)
Last week on Food Feedback Friday here’s what you all had to say:
Kar was treated to a meal at Brave New and “got the spinach/crab stuffed trout and it was delicious but the standout at the table was the walleye special.” Our friend Raven “made it to Gus's and it was perfection. Perfectly fried spicy chicken, good slaw and a cold 32 oz Miller High Life to wash it all down.” On the other hand, Polecat also visited Gus’s and found that “the staff was clueless. They were having a great time—laughing and talking on their cell phones. Had no idea how to do an assembly line in loading plates.” Bluesyoucanuse had dinner at Steinhauskeller in Hot Springs and boldly declares it to be “some of the best German food I've ever eaten, and I've eaten German food all over North America.” Jenniferb took a chance and “got takeout from Mike's (Place) earlier (the Bun Tom Nuong—BBQ shrimp over vermicelli, plus spring rolls) and really enjoyed it!”
So where are you eating this week? We’d love to hear from you.
Diana Long and the LRCVB is killing the ottenheimer hall, what happened to the variety?…
Amen. I miss Boulevard's coffee down there.
Please, please get back a vendor that serves good coffee in the River Market.
