Let’s start off with the XXL items that take an army to eat. First up, the infamous, three-pound cinnamon roll from Lulu’s Bakery and Cafe. Look at that icing! Lulu’s is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Whenever you need a midnight snack – or want a twist to your normal breakfast – find satisfaction in knowing that a three-pound cinnamon roll is just a short drive away.
From arcade games to a full-service bar, Bowlero has it all, including a five-pound burger. The Behemoth Burger aka Monster Burger features bacon, American cheese and two jars of pickles. Bowlero advises us to not do it alone and we wouldn’t try!
When we covered Chocolateka back in February 2015, my mind was blown. As a fanatic for chocolate fountains, I was thrilled to be surrounded by numerous chocolate covered desserts such as oreos and gummy bears. However, we’re not here to talk about chocolate. Along with chocolate goodies, Chocolateka specializes in chamoy. When we asked what would make our mouths water, the strawberry poppers were handed over. Strawberries stuffed with diced pickles, wrapped in sour powers, drenched in chamoy and sprinkled with “chilito”. Is this the perfect, night time treat? We think so.
It’s no secret that I have a total obsession with mangonadas – fresh mangos pureed to the consistency of ice cream and covered in red chamoy. You can even top it with pickles, gummy bears and cucumbers. When we started this crazy food epidemic, I knew Big Daddy’s Eats and Treats would have something amazing. Behold the Overload. This lip-puckering concoction combines a mangonada and fresanada and is topped off with cucumbers, sour straws, pickles, gummy bears, Lucas, Chinese candy and red and green chamoy. I’ll be honest, I did not finish the Overload, at least not on the first try! Oh, Big Daddy’s, how we love you. Warning: if you don’t like chamoy, this isn’t the place for you.
Are these items too crazy? If you don’t want your friends to have to join when you want crazy food or if you’re not a fan of all things sour, check out Frank. A church on S. Alamo had been renovated to house a hot dog paradise with insane dogs like the Notorious P.I.G. Pork, bacon, jalapeño and sage sausage topped with mac and cheese and Dr. Doppelgänger sauce on a house made bun. It’s. Amazing. Don’t miss out on the Frank sauce and reuben fries loaded with melted Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, corned beef and thousand island dressing!
That ends our first installment of Crazy Foods in San Antonio. We’re looking for more spots to hit up! Leave a comment with a food item you think we should go out and try.
