I was so excited to hear about Happy Eating. I got to try Happy Eating after it had been in existence about a week. I won’t give it too hard of a time for not being what I was expecting.
We finally got to try Jackalope Brewery, and Happy Eating happened to be parked down the street at Yazoo. What food bloggers wouldn’t figure out a way to hit them both?
The burgers with wasabi mayo on rice patties ($8) were incredible! They were unique, flavorful, and unexpected. The pickled radish really made it for me. The curried sweet potato fries, not so much. They were just your standard frozen fries but slightly underdone and very greasy. So the fries were a flop and the burger might be steep at $8 all things considered, but they were something that left a lasting impression.
We ordered the Udon ($6) with crispy pork ($2), but in a mix-up got the curry ($6). Unfortunately I didn’t notice until we got home. I thought man, that does NOT look like Udon to me. I couldn’t figure out why there was rice, and I was sure the curry smell was coming from the fries. This non-curry eater was able to take down a few bites, so its a very mild flavor, but not my cup of tea.
I’d definitely go back for the burgers, and hopefully find a cold snap to re-try the udon. The best part is that they aren’t cash only! YAY!
