[NYC - UWS] Jacob's Pickles - Dinner with Chicken and Biscuits

Jacob's Pickles is one of my favorite places to take visitors (there and Masion Pickles) because the food is delicious and flavorful and full of everything wonderful - carbs and fried chicken. The portions are beyond generous and the prices are extremely good, especially for New York City.

Sadly, the lighting for dinner is pretty dim, so I apologize in advance for the photos. Maybe now that I upgraded my phone, the photos won't look so crazy next time I visit.

You can't go to Jacob's Pickles without biscuits in some form. I, personally, go for the sandwich, but for this particular visit, my friend didn't want a sandwich, but wanted the biscuits. So, we ordered an order of the biscuits (comes in in 2 per order). The biscuits are served with homemade sauces and jams, etc. (strawberry preserves, orange preserves, honey, salted butter, and maple butter).

The biscuits are so savory and fluffy, etc. They do not taste floury and have a super great buttery flavor, which is why I love them so much.

These biscuits are super huge, actually. So, even though there are 2 per order, I'd say it's enough to probably share in a group, which is what we did.
One of the dining companions went with a drink. I'm not entirely sure which was ordered, but this is one of the drinks.

I have tried many of the cocktails on the menu and haven't been disappointed. However, I haven't gotten up the courage to drink the pickle one, which isn't a surprise to anyone who knows me.

This is the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Caesar Salad. This salad was hugenormous. I believe the reason behind ordering the salad was "I want to have something a little healthier." If that's the case for you, know that you're going to get two very LARGE pieces of buttermilk fried chicken breasts on the top of your salad. This is definitely a sharing size salad and the picture doesn't give it justice in terms of size because I didn't give a reference point in the photo.
This is the Hot Chicken Biscuit Sandwich. It is ginormous. I had my fill and I barely made a dent in the sandwich (I passed on the starters biscuit because I knew I'd have this coming my way). I always leave Jacob's with a huge takeaway bag and it always weights about 10 pounds.

So, if you have been reading for a while, you know that I'm not a huge fan of pickles, but I was reallyyyyy craving a hot chicken sandwich. I actually like the pickles at Jacob's pickles because they're fresh and not overly salty (if that makes sense to you).

The metal bowl holds the cheese grits. I recently took my Norwegian friend to Jacob's Pickles when she visited (post to come) and this was her first encounter with cheese grits. It's nice if you want to try grits because it's a side, so it gives you a nice opportunity to try grits without jumping into the deep end. The grits are very nice here with a very creamy flavor and a slight saltiness.
Oh man, this was the worst photo, but believe me that you need to try the mac and cheese at Jacob's Pickles. The mac and cheese is the real winner after I poll my friends who are able to eat and digest dairy. If you're like me, you definitely want to steer clear or else take multiple Lactaids.

It is so creamy, but since they bake it after, there's a nice crisp on the top. I believe the pasta used is cavatappi, but I may definitely be wrong. This is a small size, by the way, and two people shared it as their meals.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
