|Black and Blue Burger|
I have been hearing people rave about Fat Guys Burgers for quite some time now so consequently I have been dying to try it out myself. I tried it last night for the first time and went back again today if that tells you anything, other than that I'm a fat-ass. I had high expectations for Fat Guys and they lived up to every single one of them. The burger was in fact the best burger I have ever had. I ordered the Black and Blue, a burger topped with black pepper and blue cheese, then I added grilled onions, lettuce, mustard, mayo and ketchup. The fries were good, but not the best I've ever eaten. The thing that solidified me being a repeat customer however, were all of the different "fry sauces" they had to offer, from srirancha(ranch and sriracha), volcano sauce(my personal favorite), jalapeno aioli, caramelized onion aioli, strawberry ketchup, and many more. Normally when we go out for burgers I will order a large order of french fries and a junior burger, but at Fat Guys I would honestly be fine with just the burger--and of course the dipping sauces.
Shammy Says "Could have never dreamt of a place where I preferred the burger over the fries, WELL DONE Fat Guys, well done."

|The "Roll and Gift" just worked itself high up on my list of favorite sushi rolls|
Went to Yokozuna again this past weekend and ordered the Flaming Volcano, the Spicy Tuna roll, the Golden Driller, and the Roll and Gift. The Golden Driller was basically the Dunwell from ITR, and the Spicy Tuna roll was delicious, however it was the Roll and Gift that stole my heart. I have been wanting to try this particular roll since I ate here for the first time a month ago. I am so glad that I finally got to try it because it was nothing short of delicious. It consists of tempura shrimp, jalapeno and chipotle cream cheese rolled in masago, topped with blackened eel, scallions, eel sauce and sriracha. My sister ordered the El Guapo roll, which is crab, chipotle cream cheese and jalapeno, fried and topped with guacamole, ichimi pepper and wonton chip. It was also served with a side of shrimp ceviche. I tried a piece and it was AWESOME! Yokozuna is very different from most of the other sushi places in town, and I have yet to be disappointed.
