just got back from late lunch at pearson's (at "legend's"). and i'm ecstatic!
went with two friends and we ate everything in site.
ribs, brisket, sausage, pork shoulder (i love you pork shoulder...if only i were of the porcine persuasion...grrrr...oink!), beans, onion rings, fries, slaw, corn bread. and all of it was excellent.
i mean even better than i remember it (certainly better than the last time i was in the l.i.c. location-right before it closed-and i found the food to be somewhat lacking). the quality of meat was top notch, the smoking of it was superb (even haunting). the sides were great. everything was just "on" (how many times does that happen?).
but really it all started when i first walked in. i saw "it" sitting there across the room...under the hot lights...all brown and golden and crunchy...a quivering mound of pork shoulder...hiding dense pockets of heavenly gelatinous hog...it looked innocent...but it wasn't. oh, and it was looking at me too. all shy and demur at first...mysterious even...but at last when we touched!
sorcerous! seductress! heavenly swine!
man, it was really good!
and i'll be back..i gotta go back..maybe tomorrow.
man, how do break this to my fiance?
