The One with Fat Sal's


Wednesday, August 24, 2011

As I mentioned yesterday, after The Getty we went to Fat Sal's for lunch. I'm pretty sure I'm never going to eat anything ever again because nothing will ever compare to or taste as good as the sandwich I got. Kid you not, hands down, this was by far the most delicious, delectable, tastiest, yummy thing I have ever eaten in my life! If you're ever even anywhere near LA, you better go or else...

Fat Sal's is in the heart of UCLA. We almost got beat up cuz our license plate says USC... oopsies. We miraculously found a metered parking spot and then walked up the street to our final destination. The ghettoer looking the place, the better the food is and Fat Sal's sure didn't disappoint!

After taking a quick gander at the massive menu (we've been preparing and pondering our choices for weeks :),

I settled on the Fat Texas BBQ:

Yeah, you read that right: bbq pastrami brisket with chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, bacon, sautéed onions, melted cheddar & mozzarella, fries, mayo, honey bbq sauce, on a garlic hero. And no the chicken fingers and fries aren't on the side - they're IN the sandwich! Oh yeah!

Chris placed our order and the waiting game began. My only complaint is how long it took - but I guess perfection can take as long as it wants :)

Up for the challenge? Not today - maybe next time :)

Makin' our grub.

At last our lunch was ready. I think this thing weighed 2 pounds.

I unwrapped the honker and saw this:

And then I took my first bite and just about floated into the air.

A ginormous slice of heaven on earth.

Fox slept through the entire experience.

I'm pretty sure this won't be the last time we visit Fat Sal's. In fact, it's only like 5 minutes from the LA temple so I'm thinking every time we do a session we'll have to eat here afterwards. Done and done.
