Plate that is.

Garbage Plate.

Pete introduced me to this gastronomical fanfare. Those of you in NY are probably like “yeah, yeah, yeah, garbage plate.”

Ever since I had my first plate at Nick Tahou’s Hots, I wondered how something so awesome has escaped me during this lifetime.

I’m sure many of you out there know what this is. It’s a carefully prepared, delightfully presented entree.

No, its just of big pile of food representing one food group —>carbo-meat-attack.

Well, it’s exists on MY food pyramid.

For those of you who are intrigued, or seeking some coronary blockage, a garbage plate consists of something like this:

  • A meat product like hamburgers, hotdogs or sausages
  • homefries, macaroni salad and baked beans (pick any two)
  • mustard, ketchup, onions
  • a meat-laden, greasy, chili-like hot sauce

All on top of each other. All awesome.

Those of you in Rochester can find some version of this just about anywhere, but in Orlando, the only place I know is Bananas, A Modern American Diner

I think it loses it's luster on such a nice plate. It's needs an authentic styrofoam container.

The menu said “Just like in New York”. I’ll wait for Pete to come down and get his take, but I thought it was pretty good, even if it’s the only garbage plate around here.

Thanks for coming.
