This week I'm counting down my ten favorite dishes of 2007 -- and the absolute worst thing I ate all year.
"Baseball's Best Slider" at GCS Stadium
Baseball's Best Slider is the sort of thing you should order only when drunk or on a dare. It's a White Castle cheeseburger breaded and deep-fried, served with a side of cheese sauce, for dipping. It looks more or less like what you'd imagine a breaded and deep-fried White Castle Slyder® would look like: dark brown and crusty, generally burger-shaped -- albeit with knobs of gnarled batter that give it the appearance of a fried chicken thigh.
It tasted like ass.
