Eating Like a Boss

First I am a recovering hoarder, and last week found me doing a colossal sort and release at the All Sons Moving and Storage in Raleigh…but I ate like a Boss #PaneraBread #citybbq #Rise #Pho but can’t leave out #MrBurritto and #NourishPoint here in #Chattanooga

“They all said, ‘Call it the Big 9,’ cause that’s what the area used to be called back in the day,” he said in reference to the area being the center of black culture and entertainment when it was called 9th Street. It was renamed in 1981 in honor of the late Civil Rights leader.

Big 9 Street Food opened on May 4 and already people have grown to love the tacos, Philly Cheese sandwiches and “everything pork belly. They love the pork belly,” Maples said.

He added that patrons also love the fact that as with most street foods, diners can dress the dishes up just about any way you want.

The Rest of this tirade is from a fat chick that that is annoyed that you would dare mess up classic comfort food…

I will give you this…the Pork Hot Link covered in the flavorful chili and onions and mustard on point…ease up on the BBQ sauce on the Pork Belly, more tabasco or Sriracha and less Kraft, you got a winner!

#NotMacAndCheese

What are the ingredients in Mac and Cheese? Macaroni, how ever many cheeses, buttermilk or cream or other milk based product, kosher salt, butter. Whatever is on #Big9s menu is a pasta with cheese sauce and peppers it is so not Mac and Cheese, and should not be reported as such.

What exactly is Turkey Ribs?? Turkey Ribs is not a thing, and I am still not sure that is what I ordered. It was thick cut turkey breast with a piece of bone and what tasted like Kraft BBQ sauce. Just wrong.

I will be back for the Pork Belly with less sauce but the rest of the menu needs work. #TNFroIsEating #Big9StreetFood
