Deserts is one of my favorite lunch spots. I actually heard the owner say that I am one of her regulars. I've always wanted to be a regular, kinda like Norm in Cheers. (speaking of Norm from Cheers, why didn't they ever show his wife's face? That always bothered me.) There are two typical lunches that I normally order. One is the Chef Special which is two types of curries on a bed of rice with a half pita, for $6.50. On my extra hungry days I tend to add an extra samosa (great sauce that goes with it) which after taxes is an extra dollar. The second lunch choice is a Felafel with Tabbouleh salad for $7.75 (if you want just the felafel by itself it's $5.50). The felafel is solid isn't as good an Nuba's but it's a close second in my opinion. I never thought I would like Tabbouleh since I don't like parsley, but I really enjoy the Tabbouleh at Deserts. Maybe I do like parsley, it's a mystery that will never be solved.

I usually like to take pics of who I am eating with, since I was eating alone I took a picture of the samosa.

On a totally unrelated topic, I was at the Irish Heather's Long Table Series today for their turkey dinner (which was very tasty by the way) and I happened to sit beside another guy named Vince. Wouldn't it be cool if there was a long table series just for people named Vince? Actually that would be a very impractical and the novelty would wear off quick. At any rate here's a bonus pic for the Vince I met today.

I used to love Deserts, but I stopped eating there after a few cleanliness issues were being ignored. The last straw was the time I ate there and the table was so sticky I had to pull it off the table to scoot it towards me. Then the employee's CAT jumped on the table to check out my food. This was years ago, but that was the nail in the coffin for me.

... edit: the *table* was so sticky, I had to pull the plate off to scoot it towards me.
