A year ago I was surprised to find that I like the tacos of the Endless Summer Taco Truck.
This famous sign begs for someone to rent this abandoned storefront and bring us Brooklyn's best burger.
And then I got to Fatty 'Cue and friends of the Mulcocks started turning up. Like Tracy!
And then actual Mulcocks, like Jeff!
And Caitlin! With Pamela and Dave over there on the left.
We were seated in the restaurants charming outdoor alleyway seating.
The staff was excited for us to be there.
Bon Mots were exchanged at a breakneck pace.
Don't worry, Jeff was there too.
Babies always laugh at the most inappropriate jokes.
The menu was as daunting as it was tempting, since we were going to be feasting family style, we handed ordering duties over to Jeff (while I yelled out the names of any menu item with "fat" listed as an ingredient)
And now: This is what we ate. I perhaps didn't get pictures of everything or the best pictures of everything as most of this food was eaten sticky finger style.
Smoked Eggplant "Dip" with lots of things to dip into it or wrap it up with.
Smoked Pork Loin sliced super thin, served with different little herbs (can't see those, they're on the other side of the delicious peppercorn aioli). This was like reverse lettuce wraps, you wrapped your greens with the meat and dipped it in the sauce. A favorite.
Noodles with meat juices and hot sauce -- I served myself to small a serving of these.
Coriander Bacon with toast and yellow curry custard. Yes, what do you think I thought of the really thick pieces of bacon I was served that night? Might I have liked them?
Pullman Toast with Master Fat. What is "Master Fat"? The purified drippings of everything they cook up in the Fatty Cue kitchen. Too purified for my tastes (I was hoping for thickness, bits of meat) BUT what made my eyes go wide was the coarse salt on the toast. With so many sauces showing up on the table, a lot of different things wound up dipped in.
Just an idea of how well things were received.
Curried Black Eyed Peas on the left, a favorite. Bobo Chicken on the right, more chickeny than bobo, if you ask me.
Ribs. Real nice, not as Asian as the ribs at Ma Peche.
Brisket and buns with lots to top with or dip in, such as "bone broth."
Smoked Crab Laksa. Not everyone's favorite, which was fine with, just means I get more complex spicy crabiness in a bowl.
Birthday Desserts: Smore Pie and another pie that looked like Smore Pie but was not the same as Smore Pie
So yes, it was excellent to see the Mulcocks and it was excellent to try out a great place I'd had my eye on for a while. Mulcocks, we will see you again (and, in fact, have). Fatty 'Cue, we will be back.
