A good reason to eat lunch downtown today is to walk around and check out some cool ice sculptures.

Sriracha + Bruegger’s bagel + Boo~Kies’s = Win

December 23, 2009
Sriracha + bruegger's bagel + Boo~Kies's = Win

Sriracha + bruegger's bagel + Boo~Kies's = Win

Dilemma:

  1. Bruegger’s Bagels – Doesn’t have “real” bacon or eggs.
  2. Boo~Kie’s – Doesn’t have bagels
  3. Sriracha Hot Sauce – Elevates sandwiches

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.

In honor of my iPhone 3G no longer being broken,  I thought I would update the blog. I like Top of the Block Sandwich Shoppe for two reasons:

1) Excellent chicken wraps

2) part of a weird internal mall.

It’s located ironically at the top block of Church Street in Burlington Vermont.

This was a special of the day: spiced chicken, black beans, caramelized onions, roasted red peppers, corn, cheddar, all on a toasted/grilled wrap. $7.43 with tax and it’s yours.

I didn’t take any pictures of the internal mall, but the “Shoppe” and seating area opened up to a basement and second level containing various “shops”, very interesting.

Cheese’ n Crust SouperstaR – Burlington Vermont

Cheese' n Crust SouperstaR - Burlington Vermont

It looks like the old Klingers bakery shop, has a new tenant “Cheese’ n Crust SouperstaR”. I love the copper patina facade, and I’m curious what their take on grilled cheese is. It seems like the winter is a good time to open a soup and grilled cheese shop.

With the spate of recent closings, I’m happy to see a new opening.

-Update

Did anyone happen to notice the name appears to be a play on words?

Cheesy, yet titularly funny at the same time.

Sweet Thing – Lotsa Fizz

October 31, 2008

I honor of Halloween I thought I would write about a favorite candy of mine, Losta Fizz can be found in “Sweet Thing” on Church Street in Burlington Vermont. Note to Sweet Thing, no Zagnut bars?

I used to eat Lotsa Fizz when I was kid, although when I was younger they used to look a little different. Some of my co-workers told me that I should try a similar candy Zotz.

Lotsa Fizz are hard some-what sour candy. After few moments the melting of candy will release some of the fizz powder, crushing the candy in your teeth releases a satifiying burst of fizz. I wish these were more sour and had more fizz but eating two at once solves these concerns. These candies were $.50 for a strip of 5; keep them in mind for next halloween.
