Ahhhhhh shit!!! I'm excited to share this with all of you! I was sad that Streetcar Merchants of Fried Chicken closed down in La Jolla. But there's one in North Park and the last time we ordered their Gizzards through Uber Eats during a UFC night, the gizzards was not cooked properly and was a major disappointment. And that wasn't the first time we ordered through Uber eats and probably our last time too. There's a couple of places that make good gizzards but not quite like Streetcar Merchants of Fried Chicken La Jolla, not sure if all the credits goes to Dante or not (maybe it does), cuz the other chefs were pretty damn good too but I fucks with Dante's cooking heavy! With that said, I'm super excited Chef Dante is cooking out of Suckerfree's kitchen, a new Fried Chicken joint in Downtown San Diego on 4th Ave near Horton Plaza. A very spacious restaurant, a bar, saw liquor on their walls and some beers on tap. I didn't have any alcohol though, I cut down on drinking a whole lot. We were at Suckerfree for two reasons, one, Dante is cooking, and two, Real J Wallace's bday. I took this opportunity to finally have dinner together especially for his birthday at my favorite fried chicken joint in SD, well it's my favorite now since they opened. Great conversation, mainly about music and hip hop in San Diego as we read the San Diego Reader magazine with Rossi Rock on the cover. Talked about Real J Wallace's latest music video "My Mama Black." If you haven't seen it, check it out.
We ordered the Mac Flight. I'm not a huge fan of Mac N Cheese because I've had some really bad ones (except for the one at Neighborhood). Suckerfree Mac Flight was really really really good!! Three different flavors, Blackend Shrimp, BBQ, and Crab. All are tasty and too bad you can't order a plate, so you might have to order their Mac Flight twice if you wanna get more. We ordered their Jambalaya, that was fucking good, came with a side of large Corn Bread! FUCK! Got some Dirty Rice, Collard Greens, and their Half Chicken (Hot). I do want to go back and try their non spicy Fried Chicken because the hot was spicy for me. Don't get me wrong, I fucked it up though and enjoyed it very much. My advice to you, is to let it cool down a bit, and you'll taste the chicken to the fullest potential and its very very very sweet. Dante came out to visit frequently and I asked him how did he make the chicken so sweet, he wouldn't tell me haha. Honey or sugar or something, who knows! Shit was so good I wanted to fight Dante. Dook got up to hug the Chef for God sake, that's how much Dook loved it. Service was amazing too! Very attentive. The highlight of the evening was one of the guy came up to take our plates and Dook stopped him from taking the plate with the chicken bone which had some meat on it still. Dook planned on finishing that shit. And after Dook did just that, our server Tee took the plate and that guy (sorry I didn't get his name) came to our table and said, "so you just gonna let her take the plate huh? not me?" Hahaha that shit was comedy. I don't know if that was funny to you or not but we cracked up so hard at the table.
