Gold Spike Grill

If you haven't heard the news lately, Gold Spike is under a new ownership.  It is no longer a casino,  and has re-opened into a non-smoking bar and restaurant for the time being.  When I scanned through the menu while I was waiting to be seated, I saw some typical diner foods and breakfast offered 24/7:


When we were seated, our waitress gave us a separate notebook-like menu saying there were 100 hot sauces levels 1-10 (!) for us to choose from:

The heat chart

Level 10 hot sauces - I don't think I can ever handle this
level especially the feeling the day after! 

Level 1-3 hot sauces - Now these are hot sauces I can
handle haha

My bestie chose Crystal Hot Sauce and I got the
M&D's Ring of Fire.  Their
flavors and consistency were unique from each other.
For example, Crystal is a thin sauce and Ring of Fire is a thicker
 sauce with tiny chunks of pepper.

I chose a simple three egg omelette with spinach and mushrooms,
hash browns, and wheat toast.  Adding the Ring of Fire hot sauce to my meal enhanced
it quite nicely.

I really like this concept of 100 hot sauces to choose from.  For every time I go to the Gold Spike Grill, I'll level up and see what's the highest level I can handle!

Fat Boy

On my cheat day I ate at Fat Boy located on 4425 Stewart St Suite 107 (corner of Stewart St & Lamb Blvd).  It's a small fast food joint that serves hamburgers, pizzas, burritos, salads, smoothies (their syrups are homemade), milkshakes, and Mexican food:

Chencho Fries- a Fat Boy favorite!  These fries are topped with salsa verde, grilled onions, chopped chicken, and melted cheese:

Pastrami Boyger- beef patty topped with pastrami, mustard, grilled onions, pickles and mayo.  If you need a serious protein fix, this "boyger" is for you:

Fat Boy makes their meat patties daily and are never frozen.  Toppings and vegetables are prepared as needed, and buns are delivered to the restaurant fresh daily.  If you're feeling gluttonous, check out Fat Boy!

Flock & Fowl

If you're in the mood to eat a chicken dish, I highly recommend checking out Flock & Fowl.  This restaurant specializes in making Hainanese Chicken Rice.  It's a simple dish consisting of poached organic, free range chicken with marinated cucumbers and preserved mustard greens as seen in the photo below.  You may dip the chicken in ginger scallion sauce, house made sambal (chile), and house made soy sauce for more flavor/kick (not pictured).  Also, the sides to choose from are organic egg, Chinese sausage (lap cheung), chicken broth, or more chicken rice:

On the day we dined there, the Chicken & Poached Egg Congee was the special dish of the day.  Congeeis a rice porridge that's common throughout Asian countries.  It can be eaten plain, but usually comes with garnishes and sides:



We couldn't resist trying their steamed buns:

After I ate, I felt like I finished a home cooked meal, which is a rare feeling for me when eating at any restaurant.  Keep in mind this …
