Real life version of, “Are you Afraid of the Dark”
Eat dinner while reliving your worst nightmare
Paper Moon Diner – a place “where comfort food meets Baltimore” – is a campus hotspot for hipster OKCupid dates and college study breaks alike.
Despite an off-putting interior and exterior, the menu is exceedingly dope.
Below the creepy doll head, you’ll see specials ranging from caramel mocha pancakes to spicy ginger-soy beef brisket wraps. The menu itself is as bizarre and wide-ranging as the specials, containing unique milkshake combinations to delicious pasta dinners. In fact, it is difficult to go wrong with any of the options that the diner offers – until you get to the Bacon Milkshake.
“So bad,” said the victim of this particular Paper Moon selection. A victim of his own poor choice, we say. It reels you in with its initial sugary punch, only to leave a crippling salty, bacon-y aftertaste for far too long afterwards. However, moments after, you find yourself willingly reaching for this deceptive drink and experiencing the Bacon Milkshake rollercoaster all over again.
The meals themselves – French Toast with Vanilla Custard and a “Smartypants Burger” (gardenburger with caramelized onions and goat cheese) – were savory and enjoyable enough to make us want to come back. Check it out below!
