Analog

Last week, I finally got the chance to try Analog in the Gaslamp District. I wasn’t certain what to expect, and honestly, planned on being disappointed, given all of the hype that this place has generated. However, I was pleasantly surprised with my experience.

The décor is one of the best parts about this restaurant/bar where low-brow meets highbrow. Reminiscent of the 70s, Analog lives up to its name, featuring wood-brown tones and subdued gold. The walls are covered in old cassettes and records, the more campy, then better! The menu plays up the kitsch factor even more, looking like something from the prop department of the film, Napoleon Dynamite – a folder containing the menu written on notebook paper. Brilliant.

The offerings on the menu are simple, low-brow foods with high-end ingredients. A grilled cheese sandwich with bacon, jalapenos, and two kinds of cheese served on sourdough. Called the Dirty Sanchez (snicker), this sandwich is heart-stopping goodness.

Our other selection was the choice of sliders: we chose the crispy chicken with ranch, the pulled pork, and the BLT with avocado. Again, these were the items that junk food dreams of becoming. The chicken was very tasty, as were the BLT and pulled pork sliders. The avocado was the perfect foil for the BLT. Some sweet potato fries made us feel just healthy enough to give in to more grease!

The atmosphere was super fun, and the waitstaff was friendly. I’d say that given the unhealthy content of the food, this place is an occasional indulgence for me, but a wonderful treat.

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?
