The “Lolita Burger” sounds delicious. It’s topped with bacon peanut butter (that’s right, you heard me!), foie gras, and port wine onion jam, and recently showed up at Porn Burger on a potato-encrusted bun. The food lover in me might not turn down a bite of one if it were offered, however the book nerd and occasional juvenile in me is distracted by all the Nabokov-inspired humor to be had over its naming. Feel free to share your own, but in the meantime, here’s my contribution: No word yet on how young were the cows from whose meat the “Lolita Burger” beef burgers are made, or how inappropriate older gentlemen are likely to feel while enjoying them.

ChocoChicken

Opening its doors next month in Los Angeles, a new restaurant called ChocoChicken is looking to “reinvent” fried chicken. It will accomplish this through a culinary mashup of dark cocoa and familiar poultry. Utilizing the chocolate as an umami ingredient of sorts, ChocoChicken intends to bring us a new and savory taste. With no official debut date set, it’s perhaps too early to speculate on how that taste will be received, but with side dishes like “White Chocolate Mashed potatoes” and condiments like “ChocoKetchup” slated to join the establishment’s menu, this promises to be entertaining.

The Drinking Dead

On March 30th, 2014 Dock Street Brewery will release a beer in tribute to AMC’s popular zombie-themed television series, The Walking Dead. In a nod to our shuffling carnivorous friends and that part of the human body that they are generally known to consider tastiest, the beer will be made with smoked goat brains among its ingredients.  Dock Street Walker will be an American Pale Stout (7.2% ABV) and will also be brewed with cranberries to lend the beverage a bloody hue. I’d say something cheeky here about the dangers of drinking one’s brains out, but you’d all see that one coming a mile away, right?

Doggie Beer Biscuits

Hops and Grains Brewery is supporting sustainability while providing your canine friends with healthy snacks.  The beer biscuits it makes for dogs are all-natural, made using the safe by-products of the beer brewing process.  They’re also said to be safe for human consumption, though this is something I’ll have to take their word for.
