Salvador Molly’s is a casual bar featuring “world cuisine”. That is, menu items reflect a whole host of different countries and cultures. I might not have ever noticed this place, at it not been featured on an episode of “Man vs. Food”, where the chief gluttoneer, Adam Richman, took on a challenge to eat five spicy habanero fritters. Did he make it? Watch the video.
Mrs. Burgerdogboy and I had a vague plan to meet after work and grab something. I had proposed a place or two, but when the time came, I didn’t really have a yen for going out, and I picked her up, and we started home. On the way, she said she was feeling a might peckish, so purely on impulse, I pulled into “Mollys.”
They had me for three reasons right off the top: 1) a pitcher of ice water brought to the table; peanuts in the shell to munch on; 2) Stella Beer.
We perused the menu to narrow down the choices, which wasn’t that easy. I came to a decision, which was a tie between a Cuban Sandwich and a Vietnamese French Dip (menu).
Prepared to offer one of those up to the server, I surprised myself, but mouthing those words, but out came “Djibouti Injera Platter”, an Ethiopian melange of richly flavored sauces, vegetables, shrimp, and the local spongy flatbread.
