Free food and beer at P'cheen

I rushed out for another 10 p.m. meal Tuesday, this time at P'cheen International Bistro & Pub. As it happens, the Old Fourth Ward spot is celebrating its sixth anniversary 7 p.m.-3 a.m. this Saturday, Nov. 19. You'll want to go for the free Palm Amber Ale and buffet.

It's been a while since I visited the gastro-pub. I was addicted for some time to its Monday night event, "Mike's Bone Lick BBQ." It's still going strong, with Mike LaSage smoking and grilling some of the best 'cue in the city. It will go on winter hiatus in a few weeks, so you might want to put a visit Monday on your calendar too.

Tuesday, I ordered something quick and light — half a fried chicken with seriously garlicky mashed potatoes. The chicken was maybe too thinly battered but lusciously meaty and moist, as is typical of its source, Spring Mountain Farms (which, horribly, recently teamed up with Paula Deen to market its chicken branded with her name).

I also tried a dessert to top off my light entree — the "French Toast Ice Cream Sammy." It's two triangles of frozen, cinnamon-maple French toast layered with salted caramel and bacon ice cream. It's drizzled with more maple syrup, so picking the thing up is a mess. It's so hard-frozen that cutting it with a knife is difficult, too, until it melts a bit. I struggled but managed to eat every bite.

My server, Amira, is Server of the Week. Funny and attentive, she even prepared me a tonic water with bitters to carry out, even though I didn't ask for it.
