OK, Hounds, today's query is simple:
What's your favorite "guilty pleasure"?
By "guilty pleasure, I mean any or all of the following (but am open to other definitions)
Something that violates your dietary restrictions of whatever sort
An "acquired taste" dish that you love, but other look at you funny when you admit it
A restaurant that gets slammed on Chowhound, but you love anyway
A place that you think is wildly over-priced, but you would go to constantly if you had the budget to allow it
I suspect that mentions of chain restaurant food will probably get yanked by the moderators, but it fits my definition - perhaps if you mention a particular local outlet that does your fave right, where other locations don't...
The "Yes, I KNOW they've set a new world record for health code violations, but their is SOOOOOOO good!" sorts of places
The "mismatch" places, such as a "biker bar" that a suit-clad lawyer loves to go for lunch.
You get the idea - any place or specific dish that you love (for whatever reason) that you would hesitate to admit to loving. Post using a made-up handle other than your regular one if you're REALLY embarrassed! ;-)
