Rapid Revival Restaurant Review: Coopertown Diner

Tuesday, June 15th, 2021

Some places are just too good to be worth giving a sardonic introduction to. Coopertown Diner is one of those places. It’s a cozy resteraunt designed with a 50s theme to give a nostalgic feeling to people who almost certainly shouldn’t be allowed near any of the food they serve lest it pop their aged veins. It just has an all-around friendly fell, even if the tables are a bit sticky. And the food. Oh god, the food.

This is an oreo milkshake. It is a testament to the hubris of man that I was even created. It’s a bit hard to drink at first because of the clumps of crushed oreos but the more you drink the easier it gets. It tastes like happiness. I will die from drinking too many of these and I won’t regret a single one.

Normally I eat plain burgers but the guy recommended the rodeo burger with mushrooms and cheese. They both helped the burger have a unique but great taste. The fries were also really good, crunchy outside and squishy inside. The onion rings were lukewarm and chewy but I didn’t even order them so who cares. Overall, the Coopertown Diner is just a fantastic restaurant. Eat there.

Verdict: 9.5/10 triple-stuffed oreos

Rapid Revival Restaurant Review: Westside Market

Friday, June 4th, 2021

What is a restaurant, really? Is it a place that serves any sort of food to customers? Must it necessarily have a place where you can sit down and eat your meal? Could an ordinary store be considered a restaurant? I have absolutely no idea, but here’s a review of a store anyway.

Westside Market is both a market and located on the west side, surprising absolutely nobody. They have pretty much everything you’d expect from a market, ranging for avocados to zebra meat (I don’t think they actually have that last one but I couldn’t think of a food that starts with Z). [My editor has subsequently described to me the concept of a food called “Zucchini”, though I’m skeptical of it’s existence.] If there’s something you’re looking for, they probably have it. They also make their own food, which is what I reviewed. Be aware that there’s no seating so you’ll have to eat somewhere else.

I ordered the breaded chicken, mashed potatoes, and green beans. The beans were quite good. They were a bit sweeter than green beans usually tend to be, but in a good way that makes them go well with the chicken. The chicken itself is also sweeter than normal, though again in a positive way. The breading is also quite tasty and sticks well to the chicken. The potatoes were someone inconsistent in temperature, with parts being hot and parts being cold, but otherwise they also pair very well with the chicken.

They also make their own desserts, so I got the chocolate mousse. It’s pretty high quality, with different flavors of chocolate that contrast each other in interesting ways. It was denser than I thought it would be, but that’s actually a positive since it means there’s realtively more mousse in there.

Verdict: 7/10 Market Gardens
