Occasionally you’ll see posts that say “Ring the Alarm!,” so you’ll know onion ring reviews are coming. I love onion rings, and I’m always on a quest for good ones. Sadly, there are a lot of mediocre-to-bad onion rings out there. But on June 11, I had some really good ones.
My quest for good onion rings continued at the Rusty Spoon (http://therustyspoon.com/) before my wife and I saw a play downtown last night. It’s always a solid restaurant, but I finally tried their “Rusty O-Rings,” which totally sounds naughty. They have a nice crispy, golden batter coating that stays on pretty well, and they dust them with powdered sugar, which seems weird, but it worked to counterbalance the pungency of the onion and the saltiness of the batter. They also served them with a dipping sauce that our server told me was made with Guinness, balsamic vinegar, and mustard. “Three of my favorite things!”, I exclaimed.
