Belly Up to the Bar to Warm Your Belly at the Electric Cheetah

And when I say “bar” I mean the counter adjacent to the kitchen. What a great place to eat, especially if it’s just two of you, so you can easily have a conversation while watching the cooks prepare the food. It’s fun for me, at least, because I like to cook. (Plus, the lighting is really good for photos!)

It was pick-up night again at the West Michigan Co-op, so Bill and I have continued the ritual of stopping first at the Electric Cheetah for dinner before getting our loot on the other side of town.

We both enjoyed the soup of the eve, which was a chickpea-lentil. It was a bit on the spicy side, but still flavorful and loaded with veggies and legumes.

Since it was Burger Mania night–a 1/2 lb Creswick burger with all-you-can-eat hand-cut fries and malts–Bill ordered the burger (sans the malt, due to his dairy allergy).

I didn’t think I could go for that much meat all at once, having just wrapped up a diet detox the last week and a half, so I opted for the half sandwich and soup combo with the Creswick East Coast Pulled Pork and Napa Cabbage Slaw. Delicious.

The place was packed tonight–was it the Burger Mania?–and we were hungry, so the bar was an excellent option for us to perch near the kitchen, watch the cooks do their thing, and enjoy the cozy ambience on a cold winter evening.

Why not give it a try next time you’re there?
