Two tasty things

" width=

Here's a couple of tasty dishes. Above is the latest slider to erupt from Lance Gummere's imagination at the Shed at Glenwood. It's a super-slider-sized Reuben sandwich -- only $3, like the rest of his creations every Wednesday night.

Yeah, I'm totally addicted to Gummere's sliders. I've finally found my own version of crack. I feel like Wimpy in the old Popeye cartoons.

By the way, the restaurant also offers a Thusday-night "Harvest" dinner of four vegetables for $10, according to owner Cindy Shera. It's a healthy follow-up to the Wednesday night pig-out.

This is the chile relleno plate at Taquería la Norteña (4166 Buford Hwy., 404-320-0770) in the food court of Plaza Fiesta. It's a huge poblano pepper stuffed with a decent white cheese and fried in a light batter -- a classic that is often poorly prepared around town. It was about $10, including the usual rice and beans and five or six corn tortillas.

I sliced up the quite hot chile and rolled the pieces into the tortillas with some of the beans. Unfortunately, there was only one salsa available -- a generic, mediocre red dispensed from a gigantic jar like ketchup.

You can do a lot of grazing with very mixed success at Plaza Fiesta. But it's a fun afternoon, no matter what you eat.
