Welcome to our new Food Adventure feature called “Small Bites.”
Every other week or so, The Big Ragu and Crew will give you a quick rundown of some of his favorite things.
Some of our’s SMALL BITE:
— The Grilled Cheese Sandwich from Meadowlark Restaurant
The grilled cheese sandwich has a reputation for being a simple, inexpensive and tasty sandwich. We have died and gone to grilled cheese heaven! We recently visited Meadowlark Restaurant in Centerville, Ohio and tried the White Cheddar and Apricot Chutney Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Arguably, this is one of the best grilled cheese sandwiches ever! Imagine slices of White Cheddar with house made Apricot Chutney blanketed between two slices of Dorothy Lane Market Artisan Bread. Have we gotten your attention yet??
— The Pizza at South Park Pizza Tavern
Pizza has got to be one of America’s favorite foods and one of our favorite pizzaa is made at the South Park Pizza Tavern in Dayton, Ohio. They have traditional and gourmet pizzas on your choice of white or wheat crust. We are hooked on the Seafood Blanc pizza on the whole wheat crust. Along with great tasting pizza, they also offer a variety of good beers on tap and some of the areas hottest local bands. This place is the real deal!
Try it on a Monday night, because it is buy one pizza, get one free night, but you can be sure the place will be packed.
THE BIG RAGU’s turn to CHOMP:
— Whopper or Whimper?
Is it us, or is the Whopper Sandwich from Burger King smaller than it used to be?? The Big Ragu has a hard time believing that the sandwich they serve today is the same size as the mammoth sandwiches he remembered from the 70’s and early 80’s… Same great taste, he just feels it is a smaller version. What are your thoughts?
— The Breadsticks at McGillicutty‘s
The Big Ragu says absolutely, without a doubt, the best breadsticks are at McGillicutty’s restaurant in Kettering. If you want them with a little salt on them, then you need to say “Pretzel Sticks” when you order. These steaming hot, buttery and fluffy breadsticks never disappoint. Each basket is served with 2 dipping sauces, and they have a large variety to choose from. May we suggest the nacho cheese dip, the cream cheese dip, or the garlic butter dip to accompany the perfect breadsticks.
