REVIEW: Kooky Canuck, TGI Friday’s (& downtown Memphis pics!)

The planets are aligned. Angels are rejoicing. All is right in the world again.

I finally found a burger that puts pep in my step; that’s music to my ears; that’s all thaaaat, plus tax. No longer will my burger cravings go unsatisfied.

While the other contenders, Huey’s, and Superior Restaurant and Bar, were good, I give the edge to Kooky Canuck.

Trust me, it’s a big ‘un!

So for dessert–c’mon, you knew it was comin’, right?–I headed around the corner to a chain restaurant I hadn’t been to in yearssss, TGI Friday’s (not here in Memphis, another state). Ever since they did away with Chocolate Caramel Crunch Cake, it just hasn’t been the same. And to think I used to have a slice every week. C’est la vie!

I think it was been replaced by this:

TGIF Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

“Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie”

Sometimes, presentation’s everything!

Don’t you just wanna lick the caramel and chocolate sauce? I know I do.

While this pie was tasty, it doesn’t quite measure up to my long-gone Chocolate Caramel Crunch Cake. *sniffle*

Had to walk off all the added calories, and downtown Memphis is just the place to do it:

Hampton Inn

Hampton Inn & Suites
Corner of 3rd Street & Peabody Place

Right across the street from Hampton Inn & Suites

The fun’s about to begin on Beale
