The Dakota

The Dakota... Tasty, but not really worth the price for the amount of food. Made almost reasonable by the fact that we got a discount for being Target employees. We wanted to eat outside. It was the only place with seating by the time that we left our building.

Today's dish - Yucca root gnocchi with a green chile pesto, peas, and about 4 small shrimp.

ETA: I take that back. Not even an hour after I finished eating, and I'm already hungry again. Not worth the price. It was good, it just wasn't good enough to justify that.

Babani's? AWESOME food. Love it there. Love me some Kurdish lemonade. Apparently they dry their lemons in the sun for a while and the juice ends up being sweeter and brown like iced tea.

Tried the Chicken Tawa and it was yummy, though a little too stew like for me; but light and lemony and tasty. So I switched with PiC and tried the kubay sawar (breaded beef dumpling like thing) and that was divine.

Also their baklava is not too sweet. OMG I didn't think it possible. Definitely worth the drive over to St Paul for.

Lucky didn't make it home last night

Tonight, OSO, PiC and I went to Chino Latino and tried the guinea pig for OSO's birfday.

That was certainly interesting.

Nothing I need try again, because really, the little head and feet disturbed me a little. But it was fun. And now I can say I've done it. :) Of all the things I would have thought I'd have tried in my life... Whee! It tastes a little like greasy chicken.

This is the second time that I've been to this restaurant, and I have to say I'm just not all that impressed. Sure I love the cosmopolitan that has the dry ice in it. But the food just seems too overpriced and trendy. Like the trendy is more important than the food.

On top of that the restaurant is just LOUD. Can't hold a decent conversation pretty much ever.

I'll go again. But only if someone else pays.
