The all-you-can-eat Middle Eastern buffet in Hampden
The owner of the place where I take my car told me about it. I got an e-mail from a reader. My husband overheard someone from Pakistan praising the food. All in the same week.
So last night I stopped by King's Grilled Kabob in Hampden to pick up dinner. This isn't going to be a review of what we ate. Instead I want to tell you about two other customers I watched while I waited for my food. ...
It was just 6 p.m., and these two ladies were still eating from the lunch buffet, supposedly available for $6.99 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
They had a stack of empty plates on their table and went back to the buffet while I was sitting there for at least their third go-round. There were the remnants of kebabs on the buffet, and various dishes in sauces, felafel, hummus and so on.
One of them actually went back to the kitchen to complain because the food was running out.They had clearly already gorged themselves.
Good lord, ladies. It's a little late for lunch, isn't it? You're going to put this nice little Middle Eastern restaurant out of business.
