Fat Sal's x McDowell's (Coming to America)

This meal is hosted by Fat Sal's Deli and 1on1 PR.

One of my all-time favorite movies is Coming to America. I was born in Queens, lived there for 7 years, and got married to "She's Your Queen to Be." When we lived in NYC, we even drove out to the Wendy's location (8507 Queens Boulevard in Queens) where they filmed the scenes. But I never imagined I'd be able to go to an actual McDowell's restaurant.

Tonight and tomorrow from 10am-3pm, Fat Sal's Deli on Highland Avenue is dressing up as McDowell's for Halloween! Even though I can't eat anything because of my gluten allergy, I still had to come and see it for myself.

They've got the outfits, they've got the movie/soundtrack playing, and they've got a special menu! Here is "The Big Mick" - Cheeseburgers (yes, plural), Lettuce, Onions, Pickles, Fries and Special Sauce on a Hero. They were kind enough to make a veggie version for Abe, which you can see more of on my InstaStories.

"Zamunda Fries" - Blackened Chicken, Sautéed Onions, Cheddar, Mozzarella, Roasted Peppers, and Habanero Aioli.

And of course, a "Sexual Chocolate Shake" - Chocolate Ice Cream, Chocolate Sprinkles, Chocolate Syrup, Shaved Chocolate, Hershey's Kisses, AN ENTIRE SLICE OF CHOCOLATE CAKE, and a cherry on top.
