Saturday, February 23rd

Lunch was at a place so disappointing, that I am not going to post the name of it so we can all just move on with our lives and forget about it. The Egyptian Sampler (Baba Ganoush, Dolmas and Hummus) to start $8.99. Yes, it was pretty and it was edible, can't deny that.
My Falafel on Pita $6.99. Again, not the worst I've ever had, but my hopes were way too high based on a four star Yelp rating for a two star restaurant.
Anyways, back to normal with Boca Burgers for dinner.
Almond Coconut Oatmeal Cookies with Raisins for dessert. I know everyone is hatin' cuz I got these Cookies. That's understandable.
After all, tomorrow is another day.

You may have Sarah's cookies but apparently not her dolmas. That's disappointing about lunch. Live and learn, I guess. That's why I never try anything new.

Disappointing Mediterranean food is the worst because when it's good it is SO GOOD. The platter looks pretty which probably also makes it's mediocrity even more disappointing. Glad you had a good dinner though and yay for the cookies! Check out all those raisins ;) So far you are the only one to have those cookies with raisins! You are my taste tester, I haven't even tried one (with raisins)!

Being disappointed when going out to eat is one of my biggest pet peeves. Nothing like looking forward to a meal only to feel "meh" about it. That stinks! If nothing else, your lunch looks good. Too bad it didn't taste as good as it looks.

At least you ended the day on a delicious note! You are a lucky woman to have those cookies!

I hope you make up for lunch somewhere delicious and fantastic. Loving Hut? Everlasting Life Cafe?

Oh, I wish you would have gone into more detail into why you were disappointed. From this perspective, it looked so good!

Hey Now!!!

FF, 'live and learn' is usually my motto, but Mr. SV insisted that nothing could be learned from this debacle. I'll definitely try to avoid new things in the future.

VaVa, you said it! There ought to be a law against mediocre Mediterranean food. On a happier note, I like how the Raisins in your Cookies are so big and juicy. I'm guessing they're Thompsons?

Molly, isn't life full of enough disappointment without having to pay for it in a restaurant? The homemade Cookies definitely perked me up.

Ingrid, you do have a sixth sense dont you? Lunch was at Le Pain Quotidien, which is on par with Loving Hut and ELCafe!

Blessed Mama, I try to keep the posts short because I live in fear of boring my readers. The Hummus & Baba Ghanoush were both flavorless, the Fries were obviously previously frozen, the Falafel was okay but the portion was too small! and the service was slow and indifferent.
