With a craving for some delicious yam fries, Po' Boys, and deep fried oysters, we called up some friends and headed to this narrow little venue with lots of retro campy fun decor. We lucked out and had a great waitress serving us our food with a big slice of wit. I was playing around with the camera settings, and no, still haven't figured out how to easily take pics in dim lighting. One of these days... anyways, onto the fooooood!

Normally we don't have space as we totally pig out at Dadeo's. But we were eyeballing the flambeed dessert we saw being made at tableside the last time we came, so we saved room this time around. Heehee.. and other tables subsequently ordered the same once they started seeing the towering column of flames. Yes, it made my inner pyro quite happy, and we still had all of our eyebrows intact :D So, we first started with...
A stick and a half of butter or so...
Melt said ridiculous amount of butter...
Add in about 2 cups of brown sugar and let the it get happy
Tip in the bananas so they don't make a big splash
Look at that caramel love swirling around in the pan
the dark rum tipped in (don't be shy about it!)...
The molten mixture with flames dying down
Serve over some vanilla ice cream, and you have yourself an indulgent and very very caramelly dark rum laced soup with a few sliced soft bananas, super melty vanilla ice cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. It could have used a bit more time on the stove to caramelize the sugar some more, thickening up the caramel, and a bit more bananas vs a bowl of caramel, but Mmmmm.. sooo sweet!
You have to go eat their Po' Boys and oysters.. and lean back when they light the banana foster up in flames. Eyebrows do look good on ya :)
