What’s in a Name?
Mr. Sandwich had his second surgery today, to separate the graft. The surgeon tells us that it looks like the grafts took 100%, which is a relief. It’ll be more of a relief when his pain goes away, and his stitches come out.
While I was waiting to pick up his prescriptions, I had lunch at a nearby restaurant. The signage was a little confusing. Is it Amer’s Falafel? California Mediterranean Grill? Well, the menu clears this up: California Mediterranean Grill by Amer’s Falafel.
I had the falafel plate (hey, falafel is right there in the name of the place!), which came with a vast number of tiny balls of falafel and three sides.
The falafel was good, but the sides were the stars. The rice wasn’t particularly distinctive, but the avocado salad was delicious. What really stood out, though, was the hummus. Smooth, creamy, flavorful…this is the best hummus I’ve ever had. It was so good that I got a side order to go, so that I can have more over the weekend.
The good news is that there are lots of places to get Mediterranean food in this area, which means that I can compare versions of hummus. But Amer’s Falafel has set the bar pretty high.
