Glen Glen's For the Love of Food

Food, food, and more food. Oh, and some drinks too

Stone Creek Cafe in Englewood July 19, 2014

My dad was in town for a few days and we tend to go to breakfast a few times while he is here.  I wanted try a new place that I had seen, but never been to. Stone Creek Cafe is located on the corner of Federal and Bellview.  It is a cute family joint that I would compare to Jerry Bob’s in Tucson, AZ. Cheap food, friendly service, and infested with interesting folks. We sat in a booth, which I was surprised to get since they are pretty busy all of the time. I glanced over the menu and settled on some biscuits and gravy with sausage and my dad got an omelet with just about the kitchen sink in it. The food came out very quickly and served by a very nice lady. I dove into the sausage. It was very tasty and seasoned well.  I hate when sausage has no seasonings.  I almost feel like you cannot over season sausage. The biscuits and gravy were good, but nothing special.  My dad said his omelet was amazing and had great flavor. He ate it all, so I guess he wasn’t lying. I think this place is great for a nice, quick, cheap meal.  If you are expecting gourmet, then don’t stop by the Stone Creek Cafe.

The Rolling Italian Food Truck is Not Worth Your Time July 12, 2014

I absolutely love chicken parmesan.  I could possibly eat it every day of my life.  The problem is, I feel like not many people can make it better than I can.  I am actually a pretty horrible cook, but chicken parm is one of my specialties and I can rock it. I like to try other people’s chicken parm to compare and see where they stand on the grand scheme of the Italian dish. I walked up to The Rolling Italian while enjoying a beer at a local brewery. Italian didn’t sound that good until my eyes fell on the chicken parmesean. Done! We ordered that as well as an Italian Beef sandwich. The owner brought them over and set them on the table. I immediately was not happy. The chicken looked burnt on the edges and it lacked sauce. I decided to give it a try anyways. First bite in, I had to rip the chicken apart. That was the toughest chicken I have ever eaten.  I only made it through a quarter of the sandwich, before I gave up. I couldn’t eat it any longer.  Now, you would think that an Italian food truck wouldn’t botch up a hot Italian beef, but you are wrong. It was basically roast beef stew from a crock pot poured onto some flavorless bread. The carrots were overwhelming and not expected. Both dishes were awful. I don’t suggest trying their food unless you have no taste buds.

Yabby Hut is All Over My Fingers June 24, 2014

Yabby Hut is probably the most messy food I have ever had. But it is fantastical. I am a huge fan or seafood, and if you are, then you have to go to Yabby Hut.  Is is located off Wadsworth and Hampden in a small shopping center. The gist of it is, everything is market price and you selected it by the bunch.  Examples are shrimp by the pound or crab is by the cluster. You pick your sauce, then your heat and if you want any add ons like sausage or potatoes. Once you receive the food, you dump in onto the table and eat everything with your hands.  It is super messy, but super amazing.  I think it has killed seafood at other restaurants for me.  We heard about their birthday celebration and jaunted on down. The place was nuts. This did not stop them from giving great service and having great food. If you like seafood, then this is a must.

Rice Sushi and Bistro in Aspen Grove June 11, 2014

I love sushi so much.  I am actually on somewhat of a diet, and sushi is in my list of great foods to eat while trying to lose weight. I had been wanting to eat here for a while and finally stopped by.  The service was amazing! We were greeted by numerous people and seated quickly.  The manager, possibly owner, was always stopping by to make sure everything was good and that we had water constantly. We selected some crab cheese wontons,  a few rolls, yellowtail and some sake. All things add up to an excellent meal.  Great sushi, good flavors, and a wide variety on the menu. I had a hard time picking what I wanted because their menu was so large. I will definitely be back!! Kudos to the whole staff on their great service!

Hurricane Grill and Wings May 6, 2014

Now that I have moved to Littleton, I have a whole new area of town to sniff out.  I have started with Hurricane.  I have heard mixed things about this place and now after going twice,  have a few mixed feelings as well. The service seems iffy and the drinks are a bit expensive.  The food, on the other hand, is absolutely tasty. I ordered the salmon with a mango sauce on top, cheese covered broccoli and a cup of slaw.  The salmon fell apart, it was extremely tender. Brian went with the wing sampler, which gives you 4 flavor options out of the 30 something flavors to pick from.  Great choices and different levels of heat. If you could stand to have mediocre service, then I think you should go there just to try the awesome food.

El Toro the Tot Truck May 4, 2014

Filed under: Denver — sethocfreak @ 1:05 pm

This food truck was at The South Denver Beer Fest and it was calling my name. I walked up to the counter and asked the girl what she recommended. She said the Juicy Lucy was the best.  So, that is what I will have! Excellent cooked burger.  The name did not lie, it was extremely juicy and messy.  The messier the burger, usually the better it tastes. This was no exception. It crumbled in my hands and exploded with flavor and juiciness.  Great food truck.  Check it out if you see it around Denver!

Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar May 1, 2014

Filed under: Vegas — sethocfreak @ 6:50 pm

I am a big fan of Guy, so when I happen to be standing right in front of his new restaurant in Vegas, I had to try it. We couldn’t settle on just one beer, so we went with the recommendation of the bartender and got the Flight to Flavortown.  It is 16 taster beers. What a great idea.  If you finish all of the beers, you get a free t-shirt.  Of course, I got a free t-shirt.  :) To go with the beer, I wanted to try the lollipop wings that were also recommended. The bartender mentioned that they were not hot, just had a nice kick. She was a liar.  They were on fire hot. Amazing, but hot. I can still taste the sauce.  Served with wasabi, blue cheese dressing and celery sticks, this was a fantastic dish.  I highly suggest having these!
