We came to Longfellow to see a near and dear family friend perform. He's in a band. It's called The Jupes. We got a table 5 feet from the outdoor stage and spent the whole meal telling people we knew the talent. It was a good situation.
Talia required sweet potato fries - 8 bucks. She shouldn't have asked if they were vegan. But - sigh - thanks to her kindness and stuff or whatever, we found out that they ARE vegan, which is why I ate approximately half of them. Sorry, Talia.* The aioli that comes with them isn't vegan, but the fries themselves are safe. They aren't breaded, which makes the flavor a little dimmer, but they're still good. The skin is just tough enough to break easily on contact with your teeth, and the insides are nice and creamy. I dumped on the salt. Everything's better with salt.
To be honest, I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised! It came with red and green salsa on top, and black beans, potatoes, and corn inside. I tasted a hint of heat and loads of great flavor with lots of well-placed garlic. It was very satisfying in that way that super-carby meals can be. I'd order that sucker again. It was so big, I had half of it for lunch the next day.
Matt and I went home and delved into a pie I made. It was chocolate mousse pie. Nobody played awesome music for us while we ate it, though! What's up with that?
Sigh. First world problems.
* I'm not sorry.
