Celebrity Eating GIF By Brimstone (The Grindhouse Radio, Hound Comics)

“Unsuspecting Idaho visitors might be prepared for a flurry of restaurants and dishes celebrating the state's famous vegetable: the potato. However, Boise, its capital city, is a hub for Basque culture, with the only Basque Museum in America. Epi's Basque Restaurant, open for more than 20 years, is a wonderful celebration of the best and most homely dishes from this region in northern Spain. Still packed every night, Epi's serves crispy ham croquetas, mushrooms sautéed in butter, garlic and sherry, and an incredibly tender, fall-off-the-bone lamb shank as a regular special.”
