The veggie burger USUALLY comes with fries, but on Wednesday, it came with mashed potatoes.
Mashed potatoes mixed with bacon.
I asked the waiter, "Is that bacon?"
The waiter, who was a young, enthusiastic, cute teenagish guy, said, "Of course it's bacon!"
I was really confused. (Since pigs don't grow on trees.)
Me: With a veggie burger?
Waiter: Oh! It's not bacon! It's...scallions!
Scallions are green! Bacon isn't green!
He told me to let him know if it was actually bacon before he left.
Since I haven't eaten bacon in a good ten years, I wasn't about to just then...and just trusted my instinct that that was, indeed, bacon, and scooped it out of my potatoes. (It was thankfully a clean scoop.)
A word to Houlihans:
Bacon and veggie burgers do not cancel each other out.
