Happy hour $1 each

The texture was REALLY off on these oysters. They were definitely not fresh. Ugh! In all honesty these oysters tasted like crap which sucked because we ordered a dozen. I don’t know how old they were but they should NOT have served them!

Fried chicken - Eureka Restaurant and Lounge
Mmm, this was pretty tasty. The fried chicken was crispy on the outside and nice and juicy on the inside. I think the sweet potato relish wasn’t needed with the garlic mashed potatoes but I appreciated the different textures. I’m also glad that they served the gravy on the side because I would have eaten it all otherwise.

Wow, I was a bit shocked when this arrived to the table and there were only 4 tortilla chips on the plate, lol! But I have to say that they were really filling, and pretty tasty! I tend to overeat so I was secretly relieved that there was just enough to taste and enjoy. 🙂

Mmm, this is true comfort food! You can’t go wrong with a delicious mushroom ravioli and the truffled mascarpone puts it over the top. I like how the truffle flavor isn’t overpowering and that you can taste and enjoy the other components. Noms!
