Medical Marijuana Initiative Headed for Florida Ballot: Five Best Things to Eat and Drink While Stoned
Kapow! Noodle Bar's Bacon & Jalapeno Rangoon
First word: bacon. We all know bacon makes everything better, but it's also freaking amazing when you're stoned -- well, we heard that from a friend. While we wouldn't necessarily think bacon in a dish indicates that the chef may have been hitting the bong when he came up with that dish, the combo of American bacon with Mexican jalapeno, and Argentine chimichurri wrapped in an Asian rangoon sounds like a brainstorm from the smokey scenes in That '70's Show.
We Our friends only wish we were there to partake -- fortunately, it's available after a Sunday session of wake-and-bake.
Funky Buddha's Peanut Butter Jelly Beer
While some can't handle the whole smoking and drinking combo, this flavorful brew takes care of multiple by-products of being blasted: cotton mouth and weird mixtures of ingredients. It's kind of like that time you had a craving for ketchup and chips, and you decided to dip your Lay's in Heinz -- but it's actually good when you're sober.
d.b.a./ Cafe's the Fat Elvis
Sometimes it's difficult to figure out whether you want breakfast or dessert. The baked folks here have made sure there's no reason to get your brain in any more of a tizzy than its current state. It's called the Fat Elvis, a sweet and savory concoction of banana mousse, whipped peanut butter cream, graham cracker crumble, and chocolate covered bacon dusted with cayenne pepper.
El Jefe Luchador's El Colonel
Do you remember that one time you got high and you really wanted tacos, but you only had tortillas and Publix fried chicken? The combination of the crispy chicken and the sweet corn tortillas were eye-opening--until you passed out and forgot about it. Luckily, these guys took notes. The El Colonel taco combines southern "OG" recipe fried chicken -- way better than Publix, anyway -- pickled onion, salsa fresca, and American cheese. Who knew the American South and Mexico were such natural companions?
