Grub Street New York reports on the latest opening in Williamsburg – Mable’s Smokehouse:
“There wasn’t a place in our neighborhood to find the food we grew up eating,” says Love. That food — borracho beans, Rotel-Velveeta dip, Luzianne sweet tea, hot links imported from Schwab’s in Oklahoma City, pulled-pork tamales, and, of course, pie — makes its debut in a suitably honky-tonk setting that the couple built themselves.
As an avid fan of Rotel & Velveeta, mixed together, drizzled over tortilla chips – I find this… to be… stupid. Of course Velveeta & Rotel isn’t served in restaurants – you make it at home and cry into it while wearing your pajamas and watching Ryan Gosling movies like any other self-respecting creep. Am I the only one irritated with this? I grew up eating Schwann’s pizzas – are they gonna trick them out for Williamsburgers too? What about celery with peanut butter in it? Bologna & mustard sandwiches (with the mustard drawn on in a smiley face)? No? Too far?
There’s no price listed for it on their menu, but it better be less than making it yourself. Also – you’re not fooling me with “housemade BBQ corn nuts.” I buy mine at 7-Eleven like the other toothless no-goods.
PS. Wonder Bread sucks
