One of the more fabulously ridiculous restaurant concepts to open up has done so in The Hendo Nacho Daddy, a gourmet nacho joint, has opened up on Eastern, just a bit north from St. Rose, in the former El Jefe’s location.  You can choose from over 20 plates of “Daddy’s Gourmet Nachos” or build your own nacho empire. Selections range from your standard Chili con Carne and Cheese variety to one that has Meal Worms, Crickets, Scorpions and a 100-year old egg.  Yeah, there’s not enough Roman Red on Earth to get me to try that one, but I’d like to watch!  From the looks of things, they also have a decent beer selection that is very reasonably priced.  We haven’t been there yet, but we will soon. Oh yes, we will!

The Naked City Pizza Shop and Moon Doggies Bar will be having their Orphan Christmas Party on December 24th starting at 9pm.  It will be a time for everyone to get away from their families to get shitfaced and eat good food. But wait, there’s more!  Launching at this Orphan Christmas Party is The Frickin Huge Pizza Challenge.  The Frickin Huge Pizza Challenge is for two competitors to tackle a Frickin Huge Sheet Pizza with 4 toppings, coming in at about 10.5 pounds!  The two competitors have 30 minutes to eat the pizza.  Winners will get the pizza for free, a T-Shirt and their picture on the Frickin Huge Wall of Fame, losers get pointed at, intestinal discomfort and their picture on the Frickin Huge Wall of Shame.  I’d try it, but The Wife and I are watching our figures.  If you try it, let me know!

  • My general rule of thumb is that I will eat it if it’s a staple food somewhere, or a clever spin on it. I’m not going to order it just for the gross factor.

  • However, the rest of the menu has potential if they put some effort into the ingredients themselves.

  • Hey, bugs are a staple for people living in the bush, right? Ha! Yeah, you’re right. It’s all going to come down to the ingredients with this place. I’m looking forward to trying it out.
