I officially want to eat at 5 & Diner once a month.

If there’s anyone reading who doesn’t actually know what 5 & Diner is, it’s basically a 1950’s-themed restaurant. There are a few locations in the Phoenix area, so this explanation is for non-Phoenicians who may be reading.

Anyway, 5 & Diner is the only place I’ve seen that serves the egg cream, which is a beverage made up of milk, chocolate syrup and seltzer water. I’d been wanting one for weeks, and I had never had one before. Last night, I finally got to see why the drink is so popular in Brooklyn. It tastes great! I usually don’t like gimmick restaurants, but if it means going to 5 & Diner once a month just to get an egg cream, I’m all for it.

    Oh, you must!

    One word of warning though… they lose their flavor quickly, so they’re best handled as a dessert. That is, unless you don’t mind lots of carbonation.
