Where are the Bad Reviews?

I’ve been asked a few times why bad food/restaurant experiences aren't mentioned in any of the CUWF blog entries. Here's a few reasons why:
  • In a world full of negativity, I feel that there is no need to add more of it to the internet universe.  I think we need a little more positivity in our lives, don't you agree?
  • No restaurant is 100% perfect (not even Michelin-starred restaurants!).  Every establishment has its bad days and I don't think that should ever be the reason to blast a chef or a restaurant on the internet, period. Let's celebrate, not castigate!
  • The name of the food blog is Cheer Up With Food – we stay true to form and only write about foods that cheer us up :)
If you're the type to relish in the best that the culinary creationists out there have to offer, look no further than our blog because that's what we love to do, too!  With that said, be sure to embrace the eats, enjoy the flavors, cheer up with your favorite foods and live life to the fullest, always.

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 …
