Thai fried cashews. Mild for the sippers. HOT (Chili,salt,and fresh basil) for the Quaffers!
What about bars with free popcorn? Or dishes of pickles? I like beer garden food too, of course... And breweries that make snacks from beer ingredients, like the dishes of plain malt on every table at Zum Bautzner Tor in Dresden or the bread made of beer mash (with homemade schmaltz) at Hops & Barley in Dresden. But at the end of the day, I'm really happy with fries. Ideally well done Belgian frites from Rudy's in New Haven, with mayo!

Truth is, I don't even know what good bar food would be--most of my bar experiences have been in restaurants, so it's almost cheating. But I guess I'd go with a proper pickled egg, or even a pickled pig's foot (now *there's* a flashback to childhood!)

My favorite is kimchi karaage from biwa (an izakaya in Portland). It's kinda like a deep fried pickle, but funkier and more delicious IMO.
Mm, that sounds great! I left the US before fried pickles really took off, sadly, but I could try to make that next time I make kimchi!

biwa uses their housemade daikon kimchi to do it. I definitely get cravings for their kimchi karaage!

Oh, that's helpful information. I was sort of having a hard time picturing the process of breaking wrinkly napa cabbage! I make daikon kimchi sometime too, that'd be way easier to fry. Thank you!

Texas Chili Parlor - chips, salsa, queso and a BIG bowl of pickled jalapenos, or oysters elsewhere when available

Go Poutine! I love mine with truffle oil on top. Mmmmm!
