Deep Fried Heart Attack!Print this post
This will probably the most deep fried, bad for you, artery clogging item you will ever see on my blog, but I had to post it because I can't believe I ate it. These ooey gooey crispy evil deep fried cheese curds at The 5 Point Cafe in Seattle were just something I had to try. TASTE BUDS PREPARE TO LAUNCH INTO COSMOS UNKNOWN. Biting down on these, you get the crunch of the batter and then the hot cheesy saltiness of the cheese curd dancing in your mouth. Served with some kind of garlic aoli, I had a few with the sauce but honestly they were perfect on their own. My original plan of just "tasting" it quickly fell short and I found myself eating more than my hubby! Towards the last few pieces we slowed down to a heavy-breathing crawl, but we got a decent dose of these insane crispy mouth treats. The regulars and staff are a mix between friendly and "frank", and my husband makes weekly visits there for after or for lunch. Toss in a few dollars at the jukebox and you're good to go! I must say, my visit there years ago was a much different experience, more "raw" if you will, but the place still has a good dose of grunge and the periscopes in the bathrooms looking upon the Space Needle are an old fixture. I guess a month or so ago they closed the place down for a bit to do a deep clean and you can definitely tell.
If you are ever in Seattle and want to experience one of the most famous dive bars in town whose food is pretty damn good, you should totally hit up this place and for the love of god, don't pass up the deep fried cheese curds.
