I had T-Day dinner at Kabab “Downhill Alert” Cafe. We had the appetizer platter (foul, baba, humuus, falaffel, fried frisee, apples), blue crabs, pumpkin dumplings, whole sardines, polenta with goose fat and goose liver with bits of sauteed vegetables (crazy good), corn casserole, and then five courses of fowl — poussin mish-mish, a whole quail, whole squab, duck, and goose.
