- Food: A special spin on Poutine
- Cost: $$
- Wine / Cocktails:
When something called BadHappy opens – there is no other choice but to give it a try! Poutine, a speciality of Quebec, is a mouth watering dish of crispy fries with gravy and cheese. At BadHappy, Chef Tom Kern puts his own spin on Poutine. It is so BAD, its GOOD. With ingredients such as Foie Gras Gravy, Chicken Fried Sweetbreads, and Braised Veal Cheek, we had to try them all.
Here's what we ordered:
The Quebecer is my favorite. Fromage Beaucronne and St. Hubert Gravy. Very reminiscent of Disco Fries from NJ/NY.
Da’ Local is a nod to Chicago with House Sausage, Sharp Cheddar Curd, Hot Giardiniera, Pepper & Onion Gravy.
One Hot Asian with Viet-Pork Patties, Headcheese, Jalapeno Curd, Daikon & Carrot, Kimchi Sauce.
The Redneck with BBQ Pork, Mac-n-Cheese, Fried Okra, Carolina Cole Slaw, PBR Gravy.
HappyFace – Braised Veal Cheek, Garlic Curd, Chicken Fried Sweetbreads, Kale, Foie Gras Gravy.
The Good, the Bad and the Happy – Pork Belly, Braised Veal Cheek, Fromage Beacronne, Truffle Mayo, Foie Gras Mousse & Gravy with a Sunny Egg.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Shake.
And a BadHAppy Birthday Cake shake. They bring all the boys to the yard. Just sayin’.
