Do you know what the best food you've ever tasted is? The best food of your whole life? Only one can be the best, so think carefully...to help you out, I'll tell you about the best food I've ever tasted. Hands down, it's the Stuffed Chicken dish at Ruth's Chris. It's baked chicken with garlic cheese inside. Garlic. Cheese. Inside. Inside 1/4 of a chicken that would taste awesome even if there wasn't anything inside. Served on a 500 degree plate. Sizzling. I've never had anything like it since the first time I had it four years ago and it was the highlight of my birthday this year.
My super bestliest friend Sue took me to Ruth's Chris for my birthday (that's her above with not one, but two glasses of wine) and Mike and I met her and Will at the location on Wisconsin Avenue. Would you believe it--the power went out. And never came back on. People kept eating (I told you, it's good!) and nobody left. As a result, however, we never got to be seated and headed to another location (at 9 pm) on Connecticut Avenue. AND BOY AM I GLAD WE DID!
I ordered broccoli au gratin with my chicken. Just look at all that cheese!
And now, the chicken...
Do you see that cheese inside? You see it? It just gushes out hot and yummy!
By the way, in case you didn't know, the steak is served on a 500 degree plate also and is delicious! (so I heard)
Then, to top it all off, Sue suggested I get the creme brulee for dessert. Although I had never had it before, I took her advice--and creme brulee is GOOD!
I am still dreaming about that stuffed chicken!
Accepting any invitations to Ruth's Chris in the near future,
