My husband, Eli, ordered the DSPH Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich, which features a breaded and fried chicken breast dipped in hot sauce and topped with bacon, cheddar and veggies. Actually, he and I split both the hot chicken and the burger because they both boasted spicy ingredients, and we love to torture our taste buds. While they were both quite tasty (especially that burger!), we didn’t find either of them to be particularly spicy. The chicken had just a hint of heat, not the blaze I expect from something with “Nashville hot” in its name. I’d recommend them both, but not for their spice.
Our kids split a plate of their very favorite pub food: fish and chips. The kids loved it, and I tried a bite, too. We were all impressed by how crispy the batter was, and how hefty the pieces of fish were. Because the fish was thick-cut, there was a wonderful fish-to-breading ratio that we really enjoyed. Between all of our meals, we got a chance to sample and share several potato-centric sides. The classic fries and sweet potato fries were crispy and delicious, but our favorite side was the order of Brabont potatoes. Small red potatoes are cooked, then smashed, then fried, creating a ton of crispy bits and crunchy edges. We thought they needed a bit of salt but were otherwise delightful.
After the meal, we were all stuffed and happy. A fun family dinner with new takes on bar food had turned my Burger Day into a bonafide Good Day.
