I’m biting into this sammy, and chewing away… like a Bat Outta Hell!

So, we’re hanging out at Mudgie’s Deli & Wine Shop, this funky little joint in Corktown, next to Downtown Flavourtown in Detroit, Michigan. This place is known for craft beer and killer sammies — like pastrami, beef brisket and corned beef, but when I saw this dish was named after my favourite Meat Loaf album, you KNOW I had to dig in. Rev up yer silver-black phantom bike for the Bat Outta Hell!!!

This ain’t yer grandma’s meatloaf, son! They make it outta top sirloin, and it’s not exactly square, either…which makes for more optimal munching. Then they top it with thick ‘n chewy bacon, some melty white cheddar, red onion, mustard, and I think there’s some lettuce in there somewhere, too. The house-made pickle is a nice added touch, even though it tastes more like a cucumber, and the side of mac salad is also legit.

Now, I knew this place was known for craft beer — they’ve got over 100. But I didn’t know how funky they could get until I saw The Hat Gose Blueberry Lemonade, from Michigan’s Witch’s Hat Brewing Co. This light, crushable breakfast beer combines both the flavours of blueberries and lemonade without tasting too sour… It’s magically delicious!

But now we’re about to funk it up another notch, with the Mango Habanero Oberon, a pale wheat ale from Bell’s Brewery. You’ve got the refreshing, citrusy taste of a wheat beer, but then a nice little kick from the habaneros at the end. Normally you drink beer when the food’s too spicy, but since this beer’s pretty spicy, I need some dessert, bro!!!

They call this the Fudgie Mudgie, and it’s packing all kinds of flavour! You’ve got a warm chocolate brownie waffle, topped with a scoop of vanilla, whipped cream, hot fudge and some cocoa sprinkles!!?? Dude, I wouldn’t do anything for love, but I’d definitely eat that, Rocky Horror Broseph!!!

This waffle should be illegal, cuz nobody should feel this good!!!

So, we’re hanging out at Cacao 70, this funky little dessert chain that’s all over Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal, Edmonton, Calgary… they’ve even got one in Kingston! But right now we’re on Queen St W, just a projectile vomit’s spray away from the worst McDonald’s in western civilization. Only we ain’t after-gaming it, bro — it’s the middle of the afternoon, and we’re here for dessert!!!

Now, they call this the Illegal Chocolate Waffle, and I’m pretty sure Lee Aaron wrote a song about it or something. You’ve got a fluffy Belgian waffle, topped with milk chocolate and caramelized bananas. Then on the side, you’ve got more chocolate — crunchy chocolate cereal, melted chocolate for dipping…and oh yeah, some ice cream with chocolate on top!

This is pretty much the perfect bite right here. You’ve got that waffle swimming in chocolate sauce, with a big piece of banana on top…and some ice cream on the knife coming right up. Dude, ice cream on the knife was like my favourite Helix song, bro!!!!

(Oh, wait…)
