Chez Linda, Quiche
She's my mother. She makes a mean spinach quiche. What more can I say?
Zagat's gives it a 22 for food, a 5 for decor, and an 11 for service. It's a hole-in-the-wall refuge for those poor saps with Jury Duty on their lunch break. Soup was served in a bowl which favored the proportions of a bird bath. Duck and veggies were phenomenal. Looking my victim's siblings in the eye as I ate their brother was a plus.
YaYa Tea, Osmanthus, a tea ideal for "allaying tooth aches," according to my homeopathetic barista. "How does homeopathy work?" you might ask...for the answer click here.
Lansky's, $1.25 Sloppy Joe Sliders. Grilled Cheese Pastrami Sandwich. And to drink, a Vanilla Egg Cream.
The enjoyment of these finger foods is worth the future price of congestive heart failure.
Meanwhile, the the whole of the Egg Cream proves to be greater than the sum of its parts (syrup, seltzer, and milk). It does, however, beg the question, "where the heck are the eggs?"
A fine finish to a fabulous day. If you don't know how good it is, I can't convince you. Order yourself the Recession Special next time you're in town. Economic downturns never tasted so good.
