Of course, being good, responsible adults, we also had to have a bit of food. Respectability, you know. Can’t be seen just ordering the sweet stuff.
Despite my repeated talking-up of the Fried Pickles, we went with Walt’s Chili. (Something about “Fried Pickles” and “Classic Malt” didn’t seem to gel with my peeps.)
This is an attractive dish. Served in a small cup, the chili is topped with shredded cheese, a dollop of sour cream, and some diced tomatoes.
The chili is more of a chili stew – a tad on the watery side – which surprised me. That said, the more I ate, the more impressed I was with the medley of flavors going on. Carnation didn’t go overboard in any one direction – spice level, meat, beans – but each ingredient is present, high quality, and doing its job. This is clearly housemade, and not coming out of a can. Major props for that.
I liked this. The table did, too. Definite recommend.
