TGI Friday’s Endless Appetizers Adds Sriracha Chicken Potato Skins and Ahi Tuna Crisps

TGI-Fridays-Appetizers

A while back, TGI Friday’s offered a special where customers would get endless appetizers for $10. Guests could choose one appetizer from a limited menu and get unlimited refills of that appetizer. Now it looks like that limited selection just got a little more wiggle room with TGIF’s newest additions of Sriracha Chicken Potato Skins, Spicy Chicken Tostadas and Ahi Tuna Crisps.

The Sriracha Chicken Potato Skins are topped with Sriracha chicken, Asiago queso, green onions and Sriracha aioli on top of, as you’ve guessed, potato skins. The Chicken Tostadas are served with roasted chili-spiced chicken, craft beer-cheese queso, avocado vinaigrette, chipotle creme, pico de gallo and sliced jalapeños on top of toasted shells. The Ahi Tuna Crisps are slices of ahi on top of tortilla chips topped with Sriracha sauce, guacamole and a slice of jalapeño. I’m sensing a spicy Sriracha theme here.

The rest of the menu includes your basic Loaded Potato Skins, Boneless Buffalo Wings, Pot Stickers, Spinach Dip and Mozzarella Sticks.

TGI Friday’s must know how much people go apeshit over Sriracha. Those geniuses.

The Kind of Sushi You Order Supposedly Reveals How Much Money You Make

sushi-salary

Ladies, did you know? You can now figure out how much a guy makes based on the kind of sushi he orders.

Fancy looking clothes can only say so much. If you really want to judge a man’s class and the size of his wallet without being direct, ask him what kind of nigiri (hand-pressed sushi) he likes — apparently, his response will tell you what he’s truly made of. Hold on, guys — we’re about to get real superficial.

RocketNews24 got the expert advice of an “elite businessman” in Japan who went by the alias “Mr. M.” Allegedly, Mr. M spent a month observing sushi diners to form his theory on what the sushi orders of men says about their income; using his theory, he said he can accurately guess a man’s income based on their order within $1000 dollars.

 

Tuna — $0, No Income

sush-tuna-salary

Tuna? Wow. You peasant.” According to Mr. M, poor people can really only afford sushi from supermarkets or convenience stores and the lack of variety there really only means they’ll be eating tuna. This is not the classy choice.

 

Salmon, Avocado Shrimp — You Make $27,000+

salmon-e1411408725840

This range is for those who fancy the kind of sushi served on a conveyor-belt — which means a dollar a plate. Mr. M says that the men who order salmon or avocado shrimp tend to order sushi that is geared towards children.

 

Salt Lemon Squid — You make $45,800+

salt-lemon-squid

If this person were a car, they would be a Saab. While this choice highlights the middle-class businessmen, they will still frequent conveyor-belt restaurants, though they can still afford the more expensive places that offer a greater variety of sushi. Apparently, men who choose squid prefer salt as their extra topping of choice.

 

Boiled Clams, Garden Eel, Conger Eel, Herring — You make $73,000+

herring-e1411408696323

These are the respectable yet frugal businessmen. They know good sushi enough to have specific choices and tend to like more traditional forms of sushi. Mr. M surmises that these men tend to be architects and engineers, generally jobs of skill and class.

 

Sea Urchin, Fatty Tuna — You make $91,000+

uni-fatty-tuna

I can tell by your taste you are quite generous,” the lady says with a smile. These men pay for other people’s sushi, and by people, we mean women who have expensive taste. The pick-up line that we assume always works for Mr. M is, “I know a good place that has sea urchin.” This choice of sushi will leave her thinking only one thought — “Playaaah.”

 

All the sushi — You make $100,000+

jiro-obama

It turns out that when you enter the six-digit income range, anything goes. This guy makes so much money he gives no f*cks what other people think of him and orders whatever he likes, fatty tuna (oturo), salmon (sake), sea urchin (uni) or otherwise. A good way to spot these men of paper and class really depends on where they eat — usually the best spots in the best cities. Good luck getting in without an invite.

Thus concludes Mr. M’s non-scientific study. While he preferred to remain anonymous, he did wear a nice shirt and jacket to the interview, so we’ll go ahead and assume he was loaded.

mr-m-popped-collar

So next time you are curious about the size of his wallet but you don’t want to come off sounding like a gold-digger, try this out and ask him what kind of sushi he likes. He could be poor, he could be loaded — the point is you can never really tell.

And for you ladies who really are concerned about income, hopefully you have at least more class than these ladies.

This California Restaurant Has Philly Cheesesteak Egg Rolls

Del-Frisco-Philly-Cheesesteak-Macro

No, you didn’t read the headline wrong. Yes, this restaurant does serve philly cheesesteaks egg rolls. Del Frisco’s Grille, recently held a soft opening in Irvine, Calif. this week. Located in the Irvine Spectrum (Orange County’s Tweenage Mecca), the new eatery is an extension of the Texas-based Del Frisco’s Restaurant Group.

The place doesn’t quite have that fine-dining feel. In fact, Del Frisco’s teeters on the edge of casual and dressy where one could eat comfortably in either a suit or shorts. Not sure what to make of it yet, but hey at least the food’s good. Also, there’s booze.

Though at the end of the day, do you really want to read some jerk’s opinion, or look at yummy photographs. Thought so.

__________

Cheesesteak Egg Rolls

Cheesesteak-Egg-Rolls

Made with beef and cheese, it has the consistency of a philly cheesesteak with the crunch of an egg roll. The egg rolls are served with a sweet & spicy chili sauce and honey mustard. Not mad about this at all. In fact, we’re surprised not many places have tried this union before. Solid combo. $13

Ahi Tacos

Del-Frisco-Ahi-Tacos

Tuna tartare served with avocado and a spicy citrus mayo sauce. The tacos are served with crispy fried wonton taco shells. A pretty light entry to the appetizer menu compared to the cheesesteak egg rolls. Maybe that’s why there’s four. $17.50

Crabcake Benedict

Del-Frisco-Eggs-Benedict

The crabcake benedict, poached eggs, toasted Focaccia, with a crab cake patty that’s pretty generous on the crab. Served with a cajun lobster sauce and garnished with a pair of asparagus spears. Savory and sweet in all the right places, it’s definitely a spin on the popular brunch item we’ve never seen before. Plus that yolk, though. Brunch item only. $17

Prime New York Strip

New-York-Strip-Steak

A 16-oz New York strip that seasoned with a dope rub and grilled gingerly. I won’t say much more, but this photo will speak for itself. It’s served with potatoes or something, I forget just looking at this beast. $43

The Adult Milkshake

Del-Frisco-Shake

What makes an adult milkshake, adult? No, it’s not the cherries made to look like bewbs. It’s the Nocello Walnut Liqueur, Creme de Cacao Chocolate Liqueur and vanilla ice cream. Yum. N/A

This Whimsical Restaurant Serves You Tuna with a Samurai Sword and Cotton Candy Wigs

Barton-Steak-Fork-01

Initially, you might assume that Barton G. The Restaurant is all about gimmicks. I mean, it’s restaurant that serves you a filet mignon with a 3-foot fork and popcorn shrimp out of a popcorn machine? We were recently invited to check out the LA opening of Barton G., which until now, was a restaurant only exclusive to the great state of Florida.

Barton G. was known for their theatricality. If you ordered their Samurai Tuna dish, you’d get a dish served with a real samurai sword (though it’s frowned upon to unsheathe it and use it to cut said tuna). Upon first impressions, we thought to ourselves: “Hey this is kind of gimmicky. Cool, but gimmicky.” It couldn’t be further from the truth.

While each dish has a signature prop to accompany it, the food more than made up for the cheese (so to speak). We’ve tried some of the most flavorful dishes we’ve had in a really long time. Honestly, without all the crazy showmanship Barton G. could stand on its own against some of the best restaurants in the LA area.

Then again, you’re probably skimming this, anxious to get to the food porn. Well here it is you gluttonous bastards.

 Bread

Barton-Bread

Served right out of a tray via waiter, each piece of bread is shaped and designed as if it were a donut. However, they feature savory flavors like truffle and aged cheese.

——

Lobster Pop Tarts

Barton-Lobster-Pop-Tart-02

Commuting from Orange County to LA can be rough. Especially on a weekday workday. That being said, our eyes immediately glazed over to the Lobster Pop-Tarts. Served out of a faux toaster, the pop tarts were flaky and moist like a pastry sent from heaven. They broke open to reveal a hefty helping of lobster meat swimming in a creamy gruyere sauce.

The Upper Crustacean

Barton-Popcorn-Shrimp-02

As children, we’ve all dreamed about owning a personal popcorn machine for our bedrooms the day we moved out of our parents’ house. No? Just us? As we got older, the idea seemed more and more unnecessary and impractical. However, if that dream popcorn machine was to produce crispy popcorn shrimp and lobster with a variety of dipping sauces, then that’s a different story.

Samurai Tuna

Barton-Tuna-Sword-02

We had to be careful not to gorge ourselves on the appetizers, delicious as they might be. We were only a third into the tasting, after all. First of the entrees was the Samurai Tuna. A thick, seared tuna patty served rare with a savory rice cracker crust and topped with a roasted Shishito Pepper. It also came with mandarin-laced soba noodles and a Yuzu-Pomegranite sauce.

Oh, did we mention the bad-ass katana that came with the meal?

The Great American Filet

Barton-Steak-Fork-02

Final entree of the night was this behemoth of a filet mignon. Served with braised short rib, bone marrow and roasted snow peas and carrots and whipped potatoes the entire dish was shadowed by the giant that was attached to the serving board. If this is what it feels like to kings, then kings we were that night.

Marie Antoinette

Barton-Cotton-Wig-01

Finally, once we loosened a few notches on our belts, we got ready for dessert. The Marie Antoinette was a wig made out of cotton candy and served with an array of strawberry shortcakes. Interestingly enough, Marie’s hairstyle would change frequently much like the historical figure. Unfortunately, if you’re thinking of removing the wig and placing upon your own head, note that it’s not only advised against, but it’s also attached to the mannequin with a caramel coating.

Barton-Cotton-Wig-02

Like that stopped us.

Barton G Isai Wig

To sum it up, Barton G. exceeded our initial impressions by a huge margin. Not only was their food entertaining gawk at, but they also backed it up with amazing flavors that blew us away. Any self-proclaimed foodie in the Miami or Los Angeles areas should make a note to experience this place at least once.

So to slightly modify a popular quote from a very wise person:

Giant forks. Samurai Swords. A foodie craves not these things.

Though it is an added bonus.

Tasty Sushi Notepads Come in Tuna, Tamago and Salmon ‘Flavors’

sushi-notepads

Writing down notes can be tedious, especially if it’s a to-do list full of things you don’t actually want to do. Cutesy notepads and stationary can be perceived as slightly unnecessary but there is something to be said for sprucing up the daily grind with something that takes the edge off monotonous tasks. Notepads resembling sushi might provide a nifty little solution to this quandary. The only downside is, looking at them might make you hungry and, you can’t eat them. Sorry ’bout that.

Each sushi notepad pack comes with four kinds of mini memos — tamago, salmon, tuna, and fatty tuna — and eventually, after working your way through the colorful ‘fish’ on top, you’ll be left with a stack of plain white sheets. These notepads should really peel from top-to-bottom (the multicolored side), so you can imagine eating a piece of sushi with each piece of paper you rip off. Although since you’re not actually eating sushi, that might be more of a cruel joke than it is appeasing.

Yours for $19, the sushi notepad quartet can be purchased here.
