Sad Airport Dinner – Celebrity Sighting Included

Trying to get to Albany for work, I ended up spending about six hours at the airport. This is not a fun thing. If I had known my plane would be delayed for 5 hours, I could have stayed at home and eaten dinner there. Oh well. There’s a Legal Sea Foods there now, which is pretty decent, considering the other (lack of) options. This day was a particularly horrible day of travel, and for once, not because of the weather in Philly. So Legal was spectacularly full. My clam chowder.
My salad which pretty much was just sad. The best part of the salad was the cherry tomato halves, and there were only about 3 of them. Trust me, I counted.
At least this key lime pie was delicious! It was definitely the highlight of this otherwise sad meal. The other highlight was seeing Tony Dungy as I was eating. He came up to the entrance with his entourage, talked to the hostess for a bit, and then they ended up leaving. But it was surely him! The waitress gave me someone else’s bill, but I’m not going to slight her for it, she was probably waiting on 20 different parties.

How To Feed Scallops To Your Personal Shopper

One thing I love doing is helping people spend their money. This way, it’s free for me, and I get to live vicariously through their purchases. So after I helped P drop a bunch of dough on some threads, he fed me at Legal. He got their lobster lover deal thing. It’s a lobster! He got broccoli with cheese and mashed potato as his two sides.
It also came with a cup of their famed clam chowder. Their rolls are pretty darn good too.
And to round out the lobster deal, an amazing slice of cheesecake. Now I like cheesecake, but it’s not like I know much about it. But hot damn, this cheesecake was good! The texture was luxuriously creamy and it shocked me how good it was. Maybe I was expecting something mediocre, but mediocre this was not! We were both surprised by this.
I had the grilled scallops, because I am boring and unimaginative when it comes to eating here. This is what I always get because I know it will be good every stinkin time. And true to form, these were great. Sorry for being so predictable!

Pei Wei Overeaters

It’s always random the hours that restaurants have on weekends. We failed at going to one place that wasn’t going to be open for a little bit, so we headed over to Pei Wei instead. I hadn’t been here in awhile. I don’t remember being able to get beer there before, but you definitely can. And you can get big ass beers.
We totally got bamboozled by the menu. We read Japanese Chile Ramen and totally thought this was going to be a bowl of ramen noodle soup. Total order fail! Instead, this just ended up being a noodle dish with ramen noodles in it. You cannot imagine the disappointment. Anyhoo, this was a heaping bowl of egg noodles with a slightly spicy soy mirin sauce, scallions, garlic, bean sprouts, carrots, onions, lime, cilantro, chile peppers, and tons of tofu that we’d picked. It tasted fine, but it was totally not what we thought it would be. So it made us a little sad.
This is the Thai Dynamite with crispy chicken. It’s cooked in a sriracha sauce withh lime, scallions, garlic, red bell peppers, carrots, and thai basil. While there were some visible scallions, the carrots and bell peppers were few and far between.
I’m a creature of habit with certain restaurants, so here’s my Japanese Teriyaki rice bowl, which is my favorite dish here. It’s got a nice thick sweet soy glaze, onions, napa cabbage, carrots, spinach, scallions, and sesame seeds. And as usual, I got mine with brown rice, some of the best brown rice, ever! Why would two people order three entrees? Well, we thought we were going to share a nice bowl of ramen. Cue the sadface! At least we got to drink the crap out of some mr. pibb.
