Happy Hour @ Ingo’s Tasty Diner

Again, he picked a place for happy hour on Friday night. He didn’t like to dine out often but now enjoys it since there are so many good restaurants to try out in the area.

Although the name is kinda classic, the decor and ambience are a good mix with modern flair. When we arrived there at 5:55pm, all tables were already filled. Actually, a couple just before us took the last table. Shoot!

We started debating either to leave for another place or to wait. More people kept coming and the hostess started serving a glass of sparkling to everyone on the waiting list standing at the door. They offer cookies as well (we didn’t have them tho).

Sure! Why not!?

The wait was not so long, maybe 10 minutes or so.

Starter: Deviled Egg $4 with beer (him) & sparkling (me)

Brussels Sprouts with Goat Cheese dipping sauce $10
We both love this dish. Best taste of Brussels Sprouts ever. He usually don’t care about the veggie and goat cheese, but enjoyed both tonight. Amazing.

Blue Ribbon Cheeseburger $14

I had a quarter of it.

At this point, I ordered a glass of Hendry Barrel Fermented Chardonnay, Napa Valley ($13, but $6 during HH). What a deal! I love this floral and nicely balanced white.

The plates are cute. What we loved the most was probably servers. They are all charming, friendly and attentive 🙂

All drinks ar $6 for Happy Hour open to 7pm. All food tastes great. We’ll be back soon!
