2fer Sunday

I am here to give you your dinner and a movie tonight. I shall start with the movie, so you have something to listen to while you read. The movie (music video actually) is from Evanescence. One of my favorite bands just put out a new single, video, and are putting out a new album beginning of October. Typical of this band is great music, interesting lyrics, and a trippy video. In this case, the video is her take of the "Little Red Rding Hood" story.



The dinner now is what I had for lunch. Farokh Shwami Chicken with a taboush (?) salad. Served with Pita bread and humus, washed down with Vitmo soda. Not a fan of humus, but the rest of the meal was incredible. Let me back up. This is from a Mediterranean restaurant that I pass every day on my home from work, so I don't really know what ethnicity of food it is. I am thinking Lebanese, but I could be WAY off. The soda, though coming in a can with Arabic writing on it, is an English soda. Packaged in almost the same formula since 1908. Killer flavor, a mix or rasberry and black currant. The salad was a crisp mixture of iceberg and romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, sliced radishes (ugh), and topped in a tart oil, vinegar, and spices dressing. By far, the best part of the meal was the chicken. Oh...my...goodness. It was incredible. It was a shish-kabob with the stick, chicken was basted in some God-blessed concoction that was divine. Grilled to perfection so that it was still incredible moist.

To top it all off, I purchased some "gelato." They had about 16 flavors, along with 20 or 30 types of baklava and falafel if you had a serious sweet tooth. Let me say that they Mango gelato is to DIE for. It tastes like they took the perfect ripe mangoes (sweet yet still with a good sour zing to them), whipped them up, and froze 'em. I could spend all day, and every last dime I own eating that stuff. Come by in a week and you would be rolling an extremely fat, dirty, happy man out the door.

You have such great descriptions. You should be a food critic!

However, I could never get the "movie" to work. Whaa.

hey Ben... it's Tory, from the Gathering... Not sure if you remember me or not. Saw your comment on Brandon's blog, and though I'd pop over here to say hello... I read your profile too... India, huh? I'd love to go there! I've heard amazing things. Glad to see you're doing well, and enjoying tasty foods! Your blog is quite amusing!
