I must say thanks to Steve and Ginny for taking me out for drinks and bites at Redhead earlier this evening :) It’s easy to forget how wonderful it is to dine at Redhead with the doors swung wide open on a pleasant day. And oh! Wasn’t today’s temperature in the city lovely? Not too hot, not to cold, just perfect. I’ve posted on Redhead once before, and used to come her much more often when the restaurant had just opened for full service dinners.
House Made Soft Pretzel with Kentucky Beer Cheese
Along with cocktails, we shared housemade potato chips and soft pretzels, which came with Kentucky beer cheese…I’ve never had anything quite like it. If you haven’t had the fried chicken here yet, you ought to do so. They turn out this crazy good buttermilk fried chicken which I am especially fond of. Oh! And I’ll stop now, but if we’re going to talk fried chicken, one cannot forget BBQ Chicken, which I swear is my favourite fried chicken in this city. BBQ = Best of Best Quality.
But really, my favourite part of Redhead is the post-meal treat. They used to give out these fantastic chocolate chip cookies, which I previously blogged here and here. It’s been a while since my last visit, and they’ve totally changed things up since then…because…this time we got a blondie! Oh joy, I do very much love blondies (though I’ll always fall for the brownie if forced to choose).
These were wonderful little numbers, especially because they were still warm upon receipt. Super moist and chewy, rich in brown sugar, full in flavor and topped with candied fresh ginger. I loved taking each bite and letting the sharp, spicy crunch of ginger break through. Might I dare say, these are even more tasty than the chocolate chip cookies :)
