In my last Post .. APR 11, 16 .. PART 1 OF 2 .. FINDING MILLIE’S ESPRESSO .. I went into great detail about how to find Millie’s.
I also posted a copy of Gullible’s comment to my Post dated .. MAR 28, 16 .. YOU DID WHAT CAPTAIN? ..
Your penance for eating Nastyburgers is to eat JUST ONCE at Millie’s Cafe and then report back to me. Customers rave about it on Trip Advisor. Famous for homemade soups, burgers, Philly cheese sandwiches, fries, and chocolate cake–and on and on. Couldn’t find an exact address but my impression is it’s near the Blue Sky bldg. Lonely Planet has a section on it, and it is reported to be a favorite of ex-pats in UB. SO, next time you want American food, skip the garbage and go to Millie’s. Please.
Now that I have taken you to Millie’s front door in the above Post it is time to go inside.
“Are going to join us Gullible?”
We have stepped just inside of the entrance and we are looking due North.
Panning to the right ..From the above view we have stepped to our left a few paces in the below photo. Do you see ‘MY’ table at Millie’s? My light-beige down-jacket is over the back of one of my chair(s). I say this because when I am eating at Millie’s I do not always sit at the chair with my jacket in the below photo.A close up of the corner table.Now we have walked to the above corner and are looking back South. Do you see ‘MY’ table?
Panning right from the above scene ..A close-up of the desert display case and the cashier’s work station.Turning to our left above you see beverages ..
Another view looking South back at the entrance. ‘MY’ table is in the immediate lower left foreground. You can see the above beverage display case on the extreme right edge of the below photo.While we are here let’s walk to the far corner above and check-out the photos on the wall in the corner and to the right of the corner.
“Pardon me Gullible?” ..
“Will I go back to the third photo above. You want to look again at the extreme lower left foreground?”“Yes indeed Gullible! I am writing post cards!” .. “It’s what I do!”Sitting down at ‘MY’ table I see the below views ..
I got right by the windows and snapped the below three photos ..
“Cap Cap Cap! ” .. “CAP CAP CAP! ” .. “Cap Cap Cap! ” .. “CAP CAP CAP! ” ..
” T h e F o o d ! ” .. ” W h e r e i s t h e F o o d ?”
“I a m g e t t i n g t h e r e Gullible ! ”
Good Grief said Charlie Brown to Snoopy as he suited up for a duel with the Red Baron !
The time has come the Walrus said to get down to the getting-down!
The Food at Millie’s ..
Important Disclaimer: Taa-Daa .. I did not .. Repeat .. I DID NOT .. eat the below menu items at one time in one sitting on one day!
Gullible this is the reason why it has taken me this long to put this Post together.
I speak only for myself. One thing I judge a restaurant on is the job that they do with a plain, simple, very routine dish. I am not interested in the fancy favorites of the Cook / Chef.
The first dish that I ordered at Millie’s was a basic tuna sandwich.
“Show me what you can do with a tuna sandwich Daniel!” ..
Here is Millie’s basic tuna sandwich. You have a choice .. ‘fries’ or salad .. I wanted to test their ‘fries’.
The french fries were absolutely and positively cooked to perfection!
Will you all just look at those ‘fries’. A nice whole wheat roll.
The cost was 10,000 Mongolian Tug or US $ 4.91. The tuna sandwich was very good. Excellent.Next up was Millie’s basic, bare-bones, hamburger. I chose a salad with the basic burger.
The basic hamburger was excellent. Cooked perfectly. Good meat.
As with the basic tuna sandwich the cost was 10,000 Mongolian Tug or US $ 4.91. The ‘burger’ was excellent.
Two Grand-Slam home runs for the basic tuna sandwich and basic hamburger.
The next item of interest to me on Millie’s Menu were the Huevos Rancheros.*
*Huevos Rancheros .. a Latin American dish of eggs, usually fried or poached, topped with a spicy tomato sauce and sometimes served on a fried corn tortilla with the addition of vegetables and cheese.
Look .. Will You All Just Look at that absolutely perfect toast! Few restaurants can DO toast for me! Forget the main dish. DO good toast .. Do the most basic items well!This was certainly a ‘light’ breakfast. I am ahead of myself here but I now KNOW Millie’s has salsa that is outrageous. Next time I will ask for salsa with the Huevos Rancheros.
The Huevos Rancheros cost 11,000 Mongolian Tug or US $ 5.40.“Daniel I can’t believe your special today!” ..“A Chicken Muffalita Sandwich.” ..
“Patti and I ate these down in New Orleans back in December of 2012.”I love the whole wheat rolls that the tuna sandwich also came on.Just looking at the Chicken Muffalita sandwich below is making my mouth ‘water’.The cost of the Chicken Muffalita sandwich was 15,000 Mongolian Tug or US $ 7.36.“Pancakes .. How are your pancakes Daniel?” .. “Great Cap!”
The cost of the pancakes was 6,000 Mongolian Tug or US $ 2.94. Next time I will get two orders! YES! The pancakes were delicious.
I love ‘Club Sandwiches’ so .. next up was a Club Sandwich!
Yes Oh Yes .. The Club Sandwich was phenomenal.
These monster sandwiches or monster hamburgers I eat in layers. How else are you going to eat them? Your mouth is not large enough to fully bite into them. Eaten this way I personally find that they are very enjoyable.The cost of the Club Sandwich was 13,000 Mongolian Tug or US $ 6.38. I dare you to tell me where in the U.S. you can get a Club Sandwich like this one for US $ 6.38. Next time I may order two of them.
“Yes ‘Zilla?” .. “I am not 100% positive but I don’t think that anyone cared ‘one-whit’ about me!” .. in answer to your question about my licking the plates. My win-win is when I have a piece of bread or a roll to do-the-job for me. I do try to be a little discrete. I use my finger and then lick my finger.
“Good God Captain! We can dress-you-up but we can NOT take you out!”
I think that the young man below giving me the ‘evil eye’ was thinking to himself ..
I love Greek Salads ..
The Greek Salad cost 10,000 Mongolian Tug or US $ 4.91. Top THAT back home.Have a Cup of Tea at Millie’s ..What on earth are these mesh ‘stick tea’ bags? Do you know Gullible?
“The cost of a cup or two or three (I really get my moneys-worth out of tea bags) of Millie’s stick tea was 3,000 Mongolian Tug or US $ 1.47 .. Daniel would NOT allow me to pay for the tea.”“MY MOTHER WOULDN’T allow me to DO THAT!” .. “Keep getting more and more hot water to use-up the tea sticks!”
Below is a photo of a meal Daniel was eating. It was a daily special .. Chicken and (I don’t know what) ..The cost of the Chicken and (I don’t know what) was 18,000 Mongolian Tug or US $ 8.83. Top that back home? I think NOT.
One quick-peek into Millie’s Kitchen ..
How about we have Chicken Burritos at Millie’s?
The salsa is so good it rivals salsa anywhere.
“Daniel I need some more salsa for the second Chicken Burrito.”The below photo does not do the salsa justice but it was my best shot. Oh yes .. It is spicy!
Excel at making your basic salsa. Do the low-down-basics to perfection and you WIN with me.The cost of the Chicken Burritos was 12,000 Mongolina Tug or US $ 5.89. Sure they were good.“What’s that Gullible?” .. “Where is the CHOCOLATE CAKE Cap?”
The finish. The top corner .. end and top .. almost solid chocolate icing!The cost of this slice of Chocolate Cake was 4,000 Mongolian Tug or US $ 1.97. Was it good? ASK A SILLY QUESTION!The time has come the Walrus said to wrap-this-up.
“What’s that Gullible?”
Your penance for eating Nastyburgers is to eat JUST ONCE at Millie’s Cafe and then report back to me.
The cost of the Millie’s Double Cheese Burger with ‘fixings’ was 16,000 Mongolian Tug or US $ 7.85.
“Two next time Captain?” .. “I’ll think-on-that!”
Thank you Gullible ..
For recommending Millie’s Espresso to me!
Smiles .. Cap ..
What more can I say or show .. You have to wrap these Posts up sometime! The time has finally come to gently press Publish!
