May was a mixed bag for us, especially dining out (home cooked meals were much better, thankfully).
A special order cake for a kiddo who wanted a marble cake “the swirly kind!” with “eight roses, so everyone gets one” and “no words.”
What Ralph’s gave us:
A Mother’s Day cake from Lark; Mom wanted white cake with lemon curd filling and chocolate ganache. Wasn’t told, when ordering, that their lemon curd is now heavily flavored with thyme. Thyme and chocolate are not a great combination.
Take out from Joe’s Falafels: 1/3 of order not included, falafels were dumped in paper bag that was then put into a plastic bag and tied off - so they sweated and crumbled. The sides - hummus, babaganoush, tabouli - were put into aluminum rounds with plastic lids on top but they didn’t crimp the edges, so contents spilled and we opened that bag to a complete mess. This is the second bad experience with Joe’s so they’re off our list. (Though I must say they do have great pita, which we did use and enjoy - with an order from Sahara.)
The very good:
Zelo Pizza came through with great pizzas, calzones, and their perfect beet salad - yay!
Namaste Spiceland is now on our regular rotation, thanks to the FTC people.
I might be addicted to the Farmer’s Market Plate from Pitfire Pizza (though am ambivalent about their pizza).
Daisy Mint was quite good for a bunch of veg curries and noodles and such. (The Daisy Noodles, with a red curry, are delightful.)
