Shopsin's. They never seem quite prepared and don't exactly know what they're in for. Recently, I met up with Monique and Rachel for a day of fun and it all began at Shopsin's. And somehow Rachel found (relatively) healthy things on the menu.
First, she spotted Brussels sprouts and seeing as the three of us are all fans, we got some to share. Roasted deliciousness with just the right amount of oil and salt, and crunchy edge pieces. Then, after Mo and I ordered a Mo'Jemima and a Mo'Betta respectively, she goes and orders a Sweet Pea Pete. It's toasted (I think garlic) bread with bacon, poached eggs, cheese, and peas. And it comes with salad! Heavens to Betsy, it comes with salad! She loved it, and kept insisting that it wasn't healthy. As the two of us gobbled down mac and cheese pancakes.
