HOLY YUMMY! Before I even say anything, let’s begin with a picture:
Memphis Mae’s BBQ Bistro, located in Westchester County, is a divergence from the backwoods BBQ spots that I’m used to. Don’t get me wrong, I love a dive bar 6 days a week, but sometimes it’s nice to sit in a chair that actually has a back on that 7th day. Mae’s has a great selection of local(ish) and craft beers, which perfectly complimented the salty and spicy frickles. Yes, that’s right, these pickles are soaked in jalapeno brine for 36 hours before being battered and fried, and it adds an awesome bite to the taste. The frickle chicks are huge fans of all things spicy, hot wingy, and peppery, so after falling in love with this awesome twist on frickles, we tested our luck with Jalapeno Bottlecaps. All we can can say is… nothing, because our tongues are still numb from the blazing injuries we endured. Bex thought these were hot hot hot- but great (she said while drooling from her mouth). These are for the strong stomached fans of flaming food ONLY!
Really delicious, crispy batter.
5 spears per serving.
There was not even ONE condiment served with the frickles. There was BBQ sauce and honey mustard on the table, but they weren’t that good. This was a hard blow for us to recover from. The jalapeno bottlecaps were served with “Alabama Sauce,” which was a thin creamy peppercorn dressing. Eh.
Our order took a little less than 10 minutes.
Our waiter was super nice and patient with us even though I spilled salad dressing all over the entire table. He also coached Lyss through her first piece of pickled okra.
All fixin’s on the menu are only $2.95! Amazing.
Lyss really loved the jalapeno brine touch, as did Bex but wasn’t completely won over. Overall, these rate pretty freaking high on our list!
