Since I got some time going around before the con, spent it hanging out with Pat and his friends eating out in various places in town.
We checked out Slaters 50/50 in Point Loma Tuesday night. It’s called 50/50 since the burger patties are half beef and half bacon. Almost everything in their menu has something to do with bacon in some shape or form. It’s basically a custom burger joint, so you could also make your own burger by ticking off the ingredients in a separate form and give it a name.
Wait time was quite long since people were flocking to the place for dinner. We arrived right smack into the thick of things despite have a reservation.
|Stella Artois on tap. Of course they should have these things here.|
|Yes folks, that’s Guinness milkshake. Yummy.|
|First time for me to taste bacon ketchup… OMG.|
|I had to back down on the burgers, and ended up getting a mac and cheese.|
|That’s Meredith and her mac and cheese.|
|That’s Pat’s monstrosity of a chicken burger.|
If there’s something unique about the US is the abundance of food. The serving portions are huge and most drinks are unlimited in almost any restaurant you’d get to eat in.
