Free Cone Day tomorrow!
Posts from Previous cone days here.
Speaking of wings, (Zabby and Elf’s) Stone Soup have great wings as well as a great self serve buffet. You pay per weight of the plate and as pictured it was $9.91 with tax. Pictured are Misty Knoll “Sweet and Spicy Wings”, tamale bake, and steamed kale.
The wings appear to be non-traditionally baked instead of deep-fried, but the fat is rendered and the baking results in a higher TTL (time to live) window of deliciousness. The sauce is mildly spicy, and the sweet isn’t cloying, there is a great balance to the flavor. The meat is very tender, falling off the bone, almost like BBQ and the texture is nice when biting into the wing.
The tamale bake and steamed kale were also great, It’s easy to try to balance the wings out with good vegetable items via the buffet.
Lastly the wings are only on Thursdays and Fridays and make sure you wash your hands after eating, as the wings make your hands sticky. Don’t forget it’s cash-only.
Radio Deli is a lunch spot I like to hit up on Pearl Street when going to the post office or the mall. The proprietors are very funny conservationists and seem to be serious about providing good, inexpensive food for their customers.
I saw Cabot cheddar mac and cheese on Radio Deli’s blog but it was sold out by the time I got there. Instead I got one of my standbys “chili over rice” which comes with optional cheddar. It’s got a little celery, onions, green pepper, as well as lots of beans, meat and stewed tomatoes. The rice is white, and not over cooked (kudos).
I’ve found that the chili is much happier as pictured with the addition of Sriracha. The chili over rice is a great value @ $4.75 pre-tax.
Radio Deli takes their brownies seriously, and this is easily the best brownie for the money in town @ $.99 pre-tax. There is the key micro crispy top layer, as well as small chocolate chunks to break up the texture; Well done Radio Deli.
The obvious solution is to combine a Bruegger’s bagel (wheat pictured) with an egg / bacon / cheese from Boo~Kies (shown with optional hashbrown), with Sriracha (AKA Rooster) sauce.
This is a winning formula… all for around $3.50 (plus a bottle of Sriracha, $3.99 @ City Market).
Unfortunately this post is a little tardy, Boo~Kies’s cart appears to be done for the season, hit him up next spring.
Henry Street Deli in Burlington Vermont has great brownies. I’m not normally one of the weirdo chewy brownie people (I prefer the inside no-edge brownies); but these brownies manage to be chewy and moist:
A dusting of powered sugar befits the artisan nature of these choco bricks. The texture fest is completed with the all important crispy top layer and subterranean chocolate chips. I believe the brownies are baked every couple days by a local guy, and are priced ~$2.50.
