Friday night, date night

Went to Dempsy's tonight. The burgers were aight... the truffle fries left a lot to be desired... we waited quite a while, and in my opinion they looked awesome, but were cold, and not that great. The truffle cream on the other hand was really really good as was the garlic aioli. I loved the sweet potato fries, they were actually perfection. Over all though, I'm still a bionic burger fan when it comes to fries. I must say with the amounts you got though the prices weren't bad, not bad at all. The staff though in my opinion were a little lax, hard to get their attention in such a tiny place, when we needed them. And it did seem like we waited a long time for not that many people there. I most likely will give them another chance, quite frankly the sweet potato fries are the cheapest I have ever seen and done perfectly. I do want to try the duck fat fries... hopefully they will be hot and not cold and hard like the truffle fries. And we only had the sliders, again they were fine... not the best. (bionic burgers meat is yummy! lol haha). I want to try the strawberry marmalade, see what I think, and a few of their specialty burgers or shakes.

Other then that we also hit the ice cream place in front of Dempsy's and that place was yummy! HUGE scoop of ice cream, and was really really good. I had the Bunny Tracks and it was amazing. I tried a sample of the Mackinac Island Fudge ice cream, I'm not sure if the fudge really came from there or not... but I have had Mackinac Fudge in Mackinac and to me what ever was there didn't compare to the fudge I actually had in Mackinac. Oh well the bunny tracks was amazing! The huge malt ball on top, was also a nice touch and yummy! However, so far the best ice cream I have had around here was at the Cocoa Dolce, that ice cream is HUMONGOUS took me like a hour (not even joking) to finish my one scoop from them. It was melting all over the place, and I was trying to give it away! For sure one scoop is a sharing scoop from them! lol And I'm kind of hooked on Rockin' Rico's mudslide snow balls right now too!

Mediterranean Delight

Tried Tahini's tonight in Delano. Loved it! Best gyro meat we've ever had. You don't get as much as Le Monde's. But, it is super moist and very very yummy! The hummus was really good. The baba ganoush fresher then any where else. (although I'll admit I do like Le Monde's baba ganoush the very best). Vince really liked the roasted potatoes. I want to try the soup and salad next. And they were great about giving samples of things before ordering as well. After our dining disaster at Meddy's last year, I was very happy with Tahini's. Unlike Meddy's the workers knew about all the food they served and were eager to help you make a selection and give you generous samples too.

I also tried the dessert, it was good, but the only thing I probably will not order again, Zaytun makes the same thing much better. quite honestly it's hard to beat Zaytun on any dessert though. :) I like Kabab's desserts but again Zaytun has it down. The other mediterranean places severely lack in their dessert dept, especially Le Monde's store bought desserts. But, their biscuits make up for it! lol ;) But, any who, Zaytun makes a Kunafa that is sooo creamy it's like something between eating french toast and creme brulee. Tahini's Kunafa was a little over cooked, and lacked in the creaminess after having Zaytun's heavenly take on it.
