ABC WEDNESDAY-"Z"-ZANY Village Cuisine

 I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the so-called appetizer that was brought to the table next to ours at the outdoor patio where we were dining. At the time I thought it was pretty unusual.  The small French fried onion rings were molded into a rectangular shape about the size of a regular bread loaf. The five men who were preparing to feast on it were pretty good sports and let me photograph the appetizer. I still think it is unusual but also pretty disgusting.  After eating this unusual appetizer, they all ordered huge hamburgers! Equally amazing, during our meal, three more patrons ordered the same appetizer.  I can assure you that the other cuisine we ate in Door County restaurants were more sophisticated and far more appealing.

  8. I'm not sure I'd even try it.....well, what the heck...maybe I would nibble on it. But probably leave it to the men to devour.

  10. Hmmm. I like onions so I might have liked a bite or two....but it's far too much for one person, I think.

  12. There was a restaurant in my home town that i used to frequent with my friends that served the same thing. It was a big block of very finely cut onion rings. We would pull it apart and eat the yummy onion strings. I haven't had that in years.

  13. Oh, onion rings are big deal here. One popular restaurant we occasionally go to when we're in town, a small order will feed four people, and a large order is about 18 inches high. They are of course the large onion rings rather than the little compressed ones here. I happen to LOVE onion rings so I would definitely dig into them!

  14. I don't think that it is something I would like to taste but obviously they had big appetites.

  15. I agree with Roger, it does look like "man food". But I must admit, I would have to try just a tiny taste of that.

  16. I have read recently that onion rings are supposed to be healthier than French fries. The differential, however, was omitted. My feeling is that it is miniscule. But I do love fried onion rings - the ones they serve at Outback that about about 10,000 calories per teaspoon!

  17. Wowser! That is a lot of food! My husband and I don't usually even order an appetizer and split the entree!

    Quite tasty but a little bit goes a long way.
