Fans of freak-fusion and the deep-fried are pretty spoiled during the summer months, when the OC Fair comes to town. But where to turn once your deep-fried Jack Daniels and Totally Fried Bacon-Wrapped Pickles pack it in until next July? Lucky for you (and unlucky for your internal organs), 2nd Floor in Huntington Beach is there all year long, serving the best deep-fried delicacy this side of Fairview. The rock & roll art gallery-cum-restaurant's Zeppelin Poppers take shrimp, wrap it in bacon (natch), and stuff it into a giant jalapeño along with cream cheese before deep-frying the sucker. The poppers are served with a house-made raspberry chipotle sauce drizzled atop and on the side for dipping—and it's this pairing of a lightly sweet sauce with the salty snack that creates a harmonious union worthy of—yep—Jimmy Page and Robert Plant.
