I had lunch today with my friends Betty, Ben and Bob at our local secret gem "Alma's Kouzine".
Alma and her husband Benny are from Albania. They are amongst the most friendly and welcoming restaurants you could hope to meet (as are their daughters, who work at weekend).
Alma's specialises in whole wheat Crepes - with sweet or savoury fillings (all superb).
The menu also includes a wide array of Mediterranean dishes (wonderful Spinach pie), and some all-American favourites.
Today I chose a Fish sandwich, with Chips. It was a well seasoned bit of fish (of what species I do not know), about twice as long as the Hamburger bun on which it was served (with lettuce, tomato and onion).
But oh those chips! You will remember then from the olden days - crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middle.
I've not eaten chips since I was in the U.K. last year. But I could not have broken my "chips/french fries fast" in any better way. Oh those chips!
Alma's Kouzine is open Tuesday through Sunday for breakfast and lunch. Come October when the snow birds return, the place will also be open for dinner.
It's BYOB, but there is no corkage charge.
In deference to my lunch time companions I sign off as
