I don't usually order sweet drinks, but I was feeling frisky, and I'm glad I tried the Sandia Rose. I would have liked more rosemary flavor, but the watermelon tasted fresh and natural, meaning that it didn't have that artificial, chemical taste that you sometimes get in frothy, flavored cocktails. And they certainly didn't skimp on the gin. Boy. After a few sips, I had to ask Shane to help me out. Nobody wants to be tipsy at noon.
The Hail Caesar. My new favorite order at Hopdoddy.
I was over-the-moon thrilled to see that Hopdoddy replaced their Farm Greens bowl with a different salad called the Hail Caesar. I liked the Farm Greens bowl OK, but it didn't wow me. The Hail Caesar, though? It's my new fave. It includes romaine hearts, baby romaine leaves, delicious spicy-fried chick peas, shaved parmesan, something called potato hay, which is basically just gorgeous little fried potato matchsticks, and Caesar dressing. You can add beef, buffalo, tuna, turkey, or a veggie patty for a few dollars more, but I can't see how any of that would add to the near perfection of this salad. Of course, my only complaint is that there was too much dressing, but I always complain about that with pre-dressed salads.
I also love that it was served on the same tray as the burgers and not in a bowl. That gave it a kind of deconstructed quality, making it terrifically easy to eat.
