I’m apposta have a post up today at Karen Syed’s LIFE AS A PUBLISHER, but I’m not certain when it goes up so, in the meantime, here is a restaurant review.
[NOTE: Is not today. Is 2/28/11. Duh, me.]
Mom and I went to New Albany and, as always when we go to New Albany, we had lunch at Lancaster’s. Not Tommy Lancaster’s, but Lancaster’s Cafeteria. Fans of food in New Albany (Indiana, in case you don’t know) remember The South Side with mouth-watering fondness. Well, go to Lancaster’s and you’ll think you’re back there. Good home-cooking and reasonable prices. Some of the same staff. Sometimes we invent reasons to go to New Albany, just so we can eat at Lancaster’s, that’s how good it is. Even Charlie likes it, that’s how good it is. You could get a vegetable plate and be happy.
Tuesdays and Thursdays are our favorite days. Tuesdays they have brats and sauerkraut and spareribs, and you can get the kraut with the spareribs rather than the brats, if you prefer. We prefer. Thursdays are chicken-fried steak with plenty of milk gravy. Oh, man, I’m drooling, just thinking about it!
So that’s my Wednesday stop-gap post. When my post at LAAP goes up, I’ll link to it. Meanwhile, what’s your favorite restaurant? Do you have a favorite cuisine in general, but your FAVORITE restaurant is totally different? Because my favorite cuisine is Indian, but my favorite restaurant is Lancaster’s a mid-west home-cooking joint.
