I’ve had insomnia ever since I can remember. In high school, my grandma would give me cough syrup to get drowsy so I can fall sleep. I’ve tried everything, believe me. One of the remedies I’ve found to be effective is food. That and because it’s 2AM right now and I’m hungry. Here are the “slutty” food I’m thinking of eating right now…
Fried bread. I’m not a fan of their menu but I love Captain D’s fried bread. It’s almost as good as the Chinese version. Almost. They’re so yeasty, dense, yet airy. Slathered with lots of butter, this is the best fried “bread sticks” in America. Very cheap, too! Every time I see a Captain D’s while driving, I have to stop by and get an order of these bread (it comes with 3) and a big cup of diet coke. Perfect snack.
Fried plantains and chicken/beef empanadas. The plantains are naturally sweet. Dip them in Mexican crema and you’d think you’ve died and gone to snack heaven. $1.95 gets you 4 long strips and 2 tubs of crema. The empanadas have shells that are so crispy with just the right amount of flakiness and lots of good, tasty filling. Don’t forget to ask for their homemade spicy sauce/salsa for dipping. Both from the Buford Highway Farmers Market snack bar located right after you pass the cashiers on the way out.
Varsity cheeseburger and onion rings. Enough said.
A bagel sandwich and hashbrowns from Dunkin’ Donuts. Chewy bagel. Garlicky hash browns. Both hit the spot.
Did you know? My most favorite slutty BBQ is from Sonny’s. Nothing beats an all-you-can-eat portion of their sliced pork. There’s just something about these moist slices that are so comforting. Happy food.
Last but not least, oh how I wish I had some crispy Korean chicken wings right now.
Back to reality. Off to eat a bowl of cereal and praying I get sleepy afterwards…
