After 7 months of steadily growing in popularity I think the Hungry Heretic is finally picking up speed. We got over 1,000 hits in under a week this week! And it is all thanks to all my loyal friends, family, and random folks who accidentally stumble on this site and keep coming back fro more! Thanks to all your support I now am being published in places other than my own blog!!!! Yipeeeeeee!
To celebrate the recent success I figured I should include some never before seen pictures of delicious food. The best kind of porn is food porn, enjoy! I've taken the liberty to plan out your friday in case you're at a loss of what to do with the best day of the week. First things first, you always have to start off your day with a healthy (or not so healthy) breakfast. I'm feeling a little rebellious today, so I'm going to recommend probably one of the least healthy breakfast options (aside from the Paula Deen Brunch Burger), a McGriddle! My good friend Jenn and I have been weening ourselves off these things for months, but they're so gosh darn good! Warning: the sweet and salty combo mixed with crispy bacon and syrup infused hot cakes is dangerous: they ARE addictive. But they come with southern fried chicken now so I need to go to Mickey D's ASAP and get me one of those bad boys!!!If you wake up too late for breakfast you can always go straight to lunch, especially if you're going to be eating BBQ! Voodoo BBQ is by no means the best BBQ in the city, but it does the job if you have a hankering and you're on St. Charles. Their Jerk Chicken is my favorite thing on the menu, and the corn pudding is soooooooooooo good! Sweet and buttery like all the best things in life!
For a midday cocktail definitely head over to Cure on Freret and get a fancy cocktail for only 5 dollars during their happy hour special. I love their Pimm's Cup, the cucumber is super light and refreshing, great for a hot summer day.
Finally, for dinner head on over to the CBD to Rock n Sake, a fun sushi bar that's great for large groups. Honestly, the music is a little loud for me and the sushi isn't the best you can find but their BBQ eel roll is super tasty and their drinks are even better! Plus, they are just a hop skip and a jump away from Vic's Kangaroo Bar, Lucy's, and even the Republic or Red Eye, if you're feeling like having one of those nights.
Happy Friday Everyone!
