Back by popular demand: burritos!

Today is burrito day at the Café: fresh hand-rolled wheat flour tortillas filled with love, served with garnishes and Mexican rice and agua fresca (watermelon juice).

They're made to order while I'm here; fillings can include frijoles (refried beans), spicy chipotle potatoes, sausage-like tofu, cheese, rice, I can make them with a salsa roja or a salsa verde, whole jalapeño peppers, whatever's good. If you ask nicely maybe it can be fried into a chivichanga.

Stay late and take in the Stolen Minks and Music Inspired the Film show at night.

we've got big balls

yes, I had to use this opportunity to make a balls joke.
yes, I know its childish and overdone, but if I didn't, I would think less of myself; I'd be holding back; not stating the obvious connection to our lunch special and the classic AC/DC tune that plays on the slang term which celebrates and defiles the male genitalia?

Todays' Lunch is a light fried sweet and sour tofu balls
served with tofu and veggie fried rice and a side of steamed bok choy.

today's lunch is a celebration

Today I have expressed my love for the citrus lemon in stew form.
Mecredi special is a lentil and lemon stew, with spinach, leeks and potatoes.
comes with a side of hearty brown rice and fresh spelt bisquits for those who don't dine on the wheat.

citrus pride,

Made with Jewish love and serious chutzpah, (jewish guilt has been omitted).

Two kinds of curry: a spicy chana masala, and a milder matar paneer (the paneer is actually tofu, but a close match, so we're talking vegan here). To go along with it, I'm making spiced basmati rice. So much, but we're not done yet; add a hand-rolled chapati. Plus it all comes with our famous ginger tea, only $5 plus tax. Make it a feast, we can add delicious samosas or even papadam if you've got more money, and it goes down well with the mango juice. Where is Joshy?

oh la mexicano rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

This posting is coming from inside the Café!

What shall I make? Probably a batch of chilaquiles rojos, and quesadillas, and huevos rancheros, and you're going to have to make a decision. And sweet, sweet buñuelos.

And we've got coffee here. Imagine that!

Ahoy, hungry people!

Lunch today is tofu in a sweet and sour ginger sauce, with rice and stir-fried vegetables. Or something like that. There's also green soup over here, and all our regular fine offerings.

(Lunch yesterday was taquitos.)
