Rusty and I walked around Millennium and Grant Park on our last day in Chicago. Cool bean. Then met up with Ronnie Z for lunch at Coco’s Famous Deep Fried Lobster. I was excited to check it out, because it said it was famous.

I asked for water, but no water. Not even bottled water. I looked at the choices. Only sodas and Arizona Ice Teas. I was so confused. How does a restaurant not have any water …even if I wanted to pay for it? I almost wanted to say something but then saw the sign, “There will be $5 Charge for Whining” on the wall. I suppose it’s supposed to be humorous, but there’s probably a reason why it’s up there.

I ordered the Deep Fried Lobster ($11.25 for the small). Came with fries and a small cup of cole slaw, ketchup and hot sauce. It was pretty good, but I don’t know if it’s better than non-deep fried lobster. The deep frying is pretty much killing it, right? It’s not much different than fried fish chunks, except for the slight shellfish flavor.

Ronnie Z got a small white rice for $2.25. I don’t know who only orders just a small white rice, but this is how it looks at Coco’s (see below). He had one bite and then we left.

All I can think about is “no water.” And according to the signs out front, “No Public Restrooms” and “No Loitering.” …Alright, I’ll stop whining.

Coco’s Famous Deep Fried Lobster – 426 S Clark St (btwn Van Buren & Congress Pky) Chicago, IL 60605

    my iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Thank you!

    I think that everything published made a bunch of sense.
    However, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier post title?

    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website,
    but suppose you added a post title to possibly grab a person’s attention? I mean Coco’s Famous
    Deep Fried Lobster (Chicago) | ME SO HUNGRY is kinda boring.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news headlines to grab viewers
    interested. You might try adding a video or a related
    picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.

    the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just
