Mad Beach’s Florida food sounds like a Guy Fieri fever dream

We’d already eaten by the time we dropped by Mad Beach Craft Brewing for a drink, so I’m going to have to try their food next time. It’s just weird enough to be intriguing.

First, the more straightforward stuff, like “totchos”, which are like nachos, but with tater tots:

From totchos, it’s a short distance to poutine made with tater tots instead of fries:

I like the idea of giving deviled eggs the “Buffalo wings” treatment. I may have to make these at home:

Now it’s time to get into Guy Fieri territory, where sweet meets savory meets fattening. I’m actually interested in trying out the PB&J chicken biscuit

…but even more interesting is the jelly donut burger, served with raspberry jam between two glazed donuts in the place of a bun:

By the way, if you think that I’m not a fan of Guy Fieri, you’d be wrong. I know his stuff isn’t fine dining, life isn’t all chateaubriand and claret; sometimes a stacked-high burger, tater tots, and an ice cold beer can be balm for the soul. I completely agree with Shane Torres’ stirring defense of the Mayor of Flavortown, shown below:
