Chili Mac - Mark's Downtown Coney - Ann Arbor, MI

The chili mac from Mark's Downtown Coney in Ann Arbor was a filling and enjoyable lunch that ranks high in the "Good Slop" category.  The chili mac was a plate of spaghetti, topped with shredded cheddar cheese and chili.  I spiced it up with some raw onion and Frank's Red Hot.  I was unable to twirl the spaghetti with a fork, so I opted for the shovel method by cross cutting it and mixing it all together to the perfect slop consistency and then sent it down south.

Mark's Downtown is a great place if you are in the mood for some grease for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  I recommend the chili mac, but I also saw the griddle cook making some reuben's, blt's, coney dogs, and omelets that all looked delicious.

Soft Boiled Slider

With a bunch of mini hard rolls left over from the Rockland Bakery, I decided to make myself some mini breakfast sadnwiches a few weekends ago.  A quick note, Rockland Bakery makes the best hard rolls and everyone should experience them.  It turns a good sandwich, into a great sandwich.

Not wanting to deal with the mess of a frying pan, I soft boiled two eggs, and toasted up the rolls and turkey sausage.  I soft boiled the eggs for 5 1/2 minutes, resulting in solid whites and a thich and creamy yolk.  A few cranks of black pepper and some ketchup topped off a quick and easy clean up breakfast.

Bradford's Grill and Tavern, Stamford, CT

Bradford's Grill and Tavern has the best wings in Stamford.  Buffalo Wild Wings, Vinnie's Backyard, SBC, Bobby V's, and Tiernan's are all bottom shelf compared to Bradford's.  
They offer 50 cent wings during happy hour and 30 cent wings on Wednesday's with the purchase of a $3 beverage.  I use to go there on Wednesday nights when I lived in Stamford for a couple of beers and a plate of wings.  I miss doing this and should probably stick around after work one week and crush some wings.  My flavor of choice is the Super Hot, although occasionally, they don't sauce them enough, like the picture below.

Tawa - Stamford, CT

Here is a picture from way back when I met up with some old co-workers to take down the Lunch Buffet at Tawa in Stamford.  Overall it is a great deal, $15 bucks for all you can eat and it is good quality food, unlike some of the sketch chinese lunch buffets for $7.  On the day that we were there they were offering a spicy lamb dish, chicken tika masala, potatoes, tandori chicken wings (phenominal), naan bread, and these vegtable fritters that were good, but a little greasy.

If you are a fan of Indian food and don't mind dropping a little extra for lunch, check out Tawa.

Rinaldi's Deli - Stamford, CT

Every chicken parm sandwich that I have seen made has looked much better than the one I ate a few months back.  For a refresher of my first Rinaldi's expercience, Click Here.  I have yet to re order the chicken parm, but I tried out a few of their other sandwiches below.  They offer a variety of sandwich creations by number or you can create your own from the selection of Boars Head cold cuts they carry, or from the steam stable selection.  Fresh chicken cutlets, meatballs, and sausage and peppers are a daily standard.

Sunny and Frankie's - Stamford, CT

I have never been to Sunny and Frankie's, but my buddy Peter raves about it.  I guess he got upset when the guy at Nonna's claimed they have the best veal in town and sent in this picture a few days later.  By the looks of it, Sunny and Frankie might have the best veal in Stamford.
