When someone tells you that there is a restaurant a few minutes away from you right now that sells deep fried pineapple, you need to go there that very day.  This is exactly what I did a few weeks ago after finding out that such a place did exist – Blind Bob’s in the Oregon District.  I had always thought of this bar as more of a music venue than restaurant but I had up to that point also never had deep fried fruit, so clearly I had a lot to learn.

These are called “Hula Hoops” and besides being deep friend pineapple rings, the batter has a surprising little kick to it and it comes with a side of coconut dipping sauce.

Blind Bob’s had amazing food in comically oversized portions and I loved every minute of being there.  I can’t wait to go back!
