this week’s specials, available from today, all day, and possibly all week or while fresh ingredients last

soup of the day: onion & quinoa bisque, sprinkled with dill
Had to look this one up. Le Kitchen Slugs like to cook things which Le Drivel Writer no understand. Le dictionary says quinoa (pronounced kin-wa) is “a goosefoot found in the Andes, where it was widely cultivated for its edible starchy seeds before the introduction of Old World grains“.
Two questions:
1) Simi si ‘goosefoot’?
2) Simi si ‘Old World grains’ ?

With a tippy-tap of le keyboard, le dictionary then explained goosefoot is “a plant of temperate regions with divided leaves that are said to resemble the foot of a goose. Some kinds are edible and many are common weeds“.

So there. We’re feeding you weed seeds.

And speaking of dill, we thought this was knee-slapping guffaw-inducing HI-LA-RIOUS

Beer-battered seafood and beans tempura, with a zingy garlicky taucheo sauce.
