On a whim, and a recommendation, I decided to take the kids to the 59 Diner for their award winning shakes...I was hoping to find a real ice cream shake. That I did. It was really good and what it should have been, but really....is it all that tough to make a real shake? Milk...ice cream...blend...really...why are people writing reviews about a shake...I'll tell ya...because all of the food in Houston is crap and someone finally got something right...its praise worthy to others, scary to me. This shake was as good as any shake that you can get at any of the plethora of grease pit diners that Chicago has to offer, and you wouldn't have to drive an hour to get one. I'm not exactly sure how I became a food snob. I think it was the years I worked down in the Loop, and had the most loveliest food ever at my fingertips...ohh the days...no wonder I lost 50 pounds after moving away from Chicago.
Oh on a side note a good friend questioned the quality of Mexican food that is in Chicago...I mean really...really...I am willing to bet that Chicago has more authentic Mexican food that Salt Lake...Jessica...really...Jessica...I do love you tho!
Oh and one more shout out to a especially diluted person who told me while I was questioning if Houston has any authentic food...He said, "well I don't really like authentic food"...someone get me a baseball bat please.
Where does this passion come from? I'm insane!
