Time to 'fess up: The Chow Booty Call

So this is the inverse of the Chow Crush thread:

The Chow crush is such an innocent state of mind, redolent with the passions of youth.

But now I want to get down and dirty. You know what I'm talking about. Those late night drives, you're craving something quick and easy and available. You'd never eat these things by the light of day, you'd never introduce these food items to your sweet aunt Judy. So 'fess up Chowhounders - what food items make up your Booty Call list?

The classic Montreal Chow Booty Call: the $2.99 shish taouk sandwich from the greasiest, skankiest late night falafel joint, loaded with garlic mayonnaise, day-old shreds of iceberg lettuce, watery chunks of tomato and the ubiquitous pink navret (Turnip pickle). During day light hours, I'll search out more refined versions, but at 2:00 AM, these things seem to satisfy the urge. I'm happy to say, this has replaced the booty call of younger days, the 99 cent slice of pizza that's been sitting under a heating lamp for hours, calling for you to end its misery - this is a booty call that even I won't make anymore...

(Note: I was inspired to start this thread by another Chowhound's mention of booty calls in another thread. My apologies, I can't find that reference for the life of me. My memory ain't what it used to be...)
