One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Dinner: Bubba Gump, Universal CityWalk

Decided to make a day trip out to L.A. and do tourists like things. Things like hanging out at the Santa Monica Promenade, Universal CityWalk and you know crawling at a snails pace on the freeway. Actually, a snails pace may be a bit faster. But, I digress. After a long day, we ended up going to Bubba Gump at the Universal CityWalk for dinner...


The last time I been to the Universal CityWalk was a long time ago. I would say over seven years ago and I must say, as much as I recognized the place, there was so much that has changed. And the Bubba Gump restaurant being one of them.

Even though it was getting pretty cold out there and pretty windy, I needed something to cool me down and to wet my whistle. After the waiter gave us the menu run down, he recommended one of the specialty drinks called the Big Easy. And it didn't take much to sell it to us, as we ended up getting it...

Specialty Drinks, Big Easy: Easy is how this refreshing Southern Elixir goes down. Dekuyper Peach, Orange Juice, and Cranberry punched up with Southern Comfort. And you keep the glass. Well, not exactly, I get a new one after the meal.

I ended up getting the Old Fashioned New England Clam Chowder in a bowl as my appetizer. Since I really haven't eaten all day, it was the least I can do to solve the grumbling stomach from creating these weird noises. HAHA! And then there are the entrees. Here are some photos off my BlackBerry and a description of the meal taken off their site...

Fresh Stuffed Trout: Oven baked fresh Trout with a Crab and Shrimp Stuffing, brushed lightly with Lemon.

Mama Blue's Southern Charmed Fried Shrimp: With hot a crispy Fries and Cocktail Sauce for dippin'.

Fresh Red Snapper with Lobster Butter Sauce: Fresh Red Snapper is gently sauteed, laid over a bed of Mashed Potatoes with sauteed Spinach and a creamy Lobster Butter Sauce.

After the great meal, we still had room for dessert. After all, I/we only had fish. I'm a big fan of BJ's Pizookie and Bubba Gump's is basically the same thing. So, we went with that. We also decided to get the Mud Pie also. Let me tell you, the photos they have of their dessert is pretty deceiving. It's a lot big than we thought. Especially for three people...

Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae: A warm, fresh baked Chocolate Chip Cookie topped with Vanilla Ice Cream, Caramel, Chocolate, Peanuts and Whipped Cream. This alone would of fed three of us fine...

Mud Pie. Basically an ice cream cake topped with whipped cream and chopped nuts. This thing was huge! It could of fed a village some where on this planet! Realistically, it could of fed more than six people fine. It was the size of a small plate.

Needless to say, we didn't finish either of them. Which was unfortunate because it was such a waste. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Sundae was better of the two. And I actually prefer BJ's version of it more. I would say that we ate about a quarter of the Mud Pie and three quarters of the sundae. We could of ate less, but we forced ourselves to eat as much of it as we can. I was stuffed and still felt the fullness the next day.

And as usual, until next time... happy eating!!!
