Guilty Pleasures - Foods you shouldn't eat, but eat them anyways

Post your favorite guilty pleasure foods that you know are bad for you, but eat anyways.

Mine has to be Chili Cheese Fries w/ Pastrami at The Hat.

I know they are terrible for you, but it is just so darn good.

    1. I like the pizza at The Luggage Room. You get some cover in that some claim to be healthy or meatless.
      I had a great double double animal style the other day. I smiled all through my guilt.

                  That lobster mac and cheese really is delicious and very very rich! They serve it in a deep soup bowl. I suggest sharing one order. I can't imagine anyone finishing that whole thing.

                    Blue Plate Oysterette has terrible food and should be half the price-
                    This is basically a fast food greasy dive trying to trick tourist inot thinking it is serving "GOOD" food-I had the lobster roll $20.oo basically a small taseless sandwich-the oysters -not cleaned well and crunchy-the fried clams-good but wortht $18.00-
                    This place is dirty and makes me think of a coney island shack-BUT WITH HIGH PRICES
                    Worst meal I have ever had-felt ripped off by the poor quality-
                    I sat at the counter and watched them prepare the food-NOT A GOOD IDEA-
                    Cleanliness is not happening-Nuff said-

                  2. re: mc michael

                    OMG - mcm, it's incredible, rich & gooey, and so, so bad for me. And I always have leftovers for like 3 days in the fridge, calling my name..........evil stuff!!

                    1. re: mc michael

                      go to the Blue Palms Brew House in Hollywood and sample their Lobster Mac. better than Blue Plate in SM IMO.

                      1. re: mc michael

                        Best Lobster Mac N cheese is at Wolfgang's Steakhouse, in my opinion.

                        Wolfgang's Steakhouse
                        445 N. Canon Drive, Beverly Hills, CA 90210

                    2. I, too, am powerless over the CCF at the Hat. The only upside is that they are only edible for the first 30 minutes or so. After that, they harden into a bizarre, inedible mass. And they DO NOT reheat well at home.

                      So, I eat what I can in those 20-25 minutes and toss the rest. And then feel virtuous because I "didn't eat them all."
