    Almost forgot a quick burger I grabbed during the week...

    Dam Inn
    1000 S Milwaukee Ave, Wheeling

    I have always enjoyed this burger. Big, seasoned patty, cooked fresh to order with plenty of cheese and fresh toppings and toasted French bread. Mayonnaise added which isn't a Chicago thing but goes well. Thin fries well cooked.

    A dive bar with family connections. My father designed and had the building built. Currently owned buy the daughter of my father's sister's brother. Shirttail to be sure. We do stay in touch so it was good to see Mel (Melanie).

    Enjoy the adult novelties and Halloween decorations while you wait. :)

    Not a destination nor a spot to stop at for a football game (closed Sundays). I don't think there are any craft beers nor cocktails.

    Just a burger and a bottle of Bud. :)

    Isn't your father's sister's brother actually your father or your uncle?

    Your description puts me in mind of this old tune:

    You're right, I was missing a connection...

    My Father's, Sister's, Husband's, Brother's, (or was it Sister's?) Daughter who is the owner.

    I think it was sister now thinking about it. :)

    Another great area meal yesterday.

    Siunik Armenian Grill
    1707 Chestnut Ave, Glenview

    D8E6A4C2-E381-441B-89D7-6B1D7B13C0D6.jpeg A Feast!

    The main dish, Lula Kabob (ground beef) (there were 3 pieces :) ), mushroom pilaf (made with cracked wheat), cabbage salad, tabuleh with Lebanese pita.

    Kabob was aggressively spiced (very similar to ćevapi) and nice and juicy. Lightly browned.

    I later found out they had a traditional red hot sauce that I could of applied but I didn’t see until after.

    I knew that I wouldn’t finish all so to taste and take home was a large Lentil Soup and Hummus.

    I already mentioned the kabob, other items...

    The Mushroom Pilaf was made with cracked wheat which is maybe the closest to actual Armenian cuisine they had. When asking the owner during a brief lull about the lack he smiled and wiggled his eyebrows.

    Cabbage Salad was a fairly fine shred and not too acorn. Nicely balanced with a good crunch.

    Tabuleh was pretty darn good as far as salads go. Not sure what the green was (parsley, some relative of mint) but it’s mild flavor complemented the tomato nicely.

    It has been a long time since I’ve visited and boy! What grand changes!

    Last time I was there it was much simpler, less decorations, the small (maybe 5 item buffet) was on tables where the bar is.

    It was also glad to see a Nepalese rice dish join the stewed goat.

    I did one plate of meat dishes which were mostly without spiciness. The standout on this plate was the Tandoori Chicken. Awesome smoky flavor and, as always, the raw onion was a nice complement.

    Next was a plate of vegetarian items. All were very good and I was glad to see the heat turned up. Mmmm... The highlight? Mushroom Marsala. Wonderfully rich gravy and chock full of nice mushroom chunks.

    The Samosa and a fritter item were on this plate and hit the spot. The little Samosa has a nice hit of spice allowing me to forgive the extra dough.

    Going back for a third plate had me dishing up some more butter chicken and mushrooms. I would of also grabbed another piece of Tandoori Chicken but the pieces were on the big side.

    I would say there wasn’t a clinker in the group.

    Ah, yes, Everest is one of the good ones. Many happy lunches there.

    There was an Indian buffet at lunch (and menu otherwise) associated with the Big Cinemas a mile west of Everest. When I went, more years ago than I'd care tot admit, it was VERY limited, less than Everest was before the expansion, thought they brought the tandoori chicken to you fresh at the table on a sizzling plate. The quality was a step or two above Everest. The Tandori chicken and goat stew were fall off the bone tender, although the goat stew had almost no bones to fall off of just big chunks of lean meat. The kulfi was the best I ever had, including on Devon Avenue.

    The current name, Ruchi, that I now see in Google street view, does not trigger any memories, and their menu does not list a buffet (though sometimes restaurants have them but don't list them online). I don't recall anything non-indian before, so I suspect big changes. http://ruchichicago.com/dine-menu.html

    Still, the menu looks interesting, I'd meet you there (subject to the ground rule of no pizza) for buffet if they have it, order off menu otherwise, but not this week, too many lunches already that will be breaking my new "diet". They share a lobby with the movie theater, and I think people buy food there to take into the theater, so the pizza may well be frozen factory produced intended primarily for the theater crowd.

    I don't remember (if you even know) how much longer you will be working in the neighborhood. Hmm, being that it is another 2+ minutes each direction, probably you could not afford the time, or at least not unless you call and ascertain they do have a buffet. I won't call because I'd be better off NOT adding one more buffet lunch.
