    I think we have argued this before but give me Felix's over ACME all day.  Both are touristy, but Felix's has a much better and low key vibe to me. Get a spot at a bar, get some beers (many), get the char grilled gator, make friends with the shuckers and you'll have yourself a good time.  They'll just be shucking them and popping them on the bar in front of you.  If you made a good friend, you will be very pleasantly surprised with your bill.

    Lived in New Zealand as a kid, twice. Grew up on lamb. The best meat there is, hands down. 

    That looks phenomenal

    Mint jelly is great on lamb but I caution, don't over do it. I find that mint in anything goes a long way

    I like mint jelly. Don’t have it often as I don’t keep it stocked but dig it with lamb once in a while 

    yeah, that looks awesome

    I'm at Belgian Fries - couldn't resist as I walked by on my way home from the record store! The beef brisket poutine. Omfg it's amazing.

    I had a burger for lunch, too, from some place called A&B that’s supposed to have the best burger in the area. 

    I found it mediocre at best. Fucking culinary wasteland up here. 

    I don’t give a fuck if you diddled the cows every day to keep them happy. Doesn’t make the meat taste any better.

    That poutine looks delicious. 
    I generally avoid chains, but Shake Shack, with no line at 2:15, really hit the spot.  Better than in and out.
