You know what’s better than blogging? Getting paid to blog. : ) I recently received a $25 gift card to Restaurant.com in the mail and redeemed it online for a gift certificate to Faradays of Smithtown!
Michael and I called in for a reservation at 6pm, and found ourselves in the middle of Happy Hour in a very cozy Irish-American themed bar and restaurant.
Our waitress was super nice, and we were served a fresh loaf of wheat bread and butter. I only had water, but pictured here is Michael’s glass of Blue Moon. :P
For our appetizers, we ordered Fried Mushrooms and a Blooming Onion. Both were really good, though I did prefer the mushrooms because they were juicy and flavorful. I firmly believe that Outback Steakhouse does the deep fried onion much, much better!
Both of us were also served a black bean soup with sour cream on top!
For our entrées, I had the Bourbon BBQ Glazed Pork and Michael ordered the Chicken Contadina. At this point, I was already almost full. So I couldn’t even finish my whole plate without feeling like I was going to burst! Haha.
Both of our main dishes were excellent. Under different circumstances I’m sure we wouldn’t have even heard of Faradays, much less dine here. I’m glad that writing for this blog comes with its rewards! For those of you who are interested.. Restaurant.com offers great deals on local eateries, no matter where you live. Just put in your zip code on their website to find participating restaurants! I honestly can’t wait for my next gift card to come in the mail next month, so we can find another fine place to try. : )
