    The tuna sandwich, seared and cooked rare is excellent! Everything at this restaurant is good though!

    Took a guest the last Sunday afternoon. He ordered the tenderloin sandwich. He barely could manage cutting the meat with a knife it was so overcooked. All other meals were satisfactory at best.

    South Union bread, great meat counter and coffee selections. Usually good produce, though some specials are not often so great. A good stop for many items, probably won't be your only grocery store.

    From the storied manufacturers of Fox's u-bet chocolate syrup- the only way to make a egg cream (look it up) this stuff is addictive!

    A word to the wise: Huy Fong foods is the original Sriracha, Sambal Oelek, and Chili Garlic Sauce company (one brilliant ex-pat Vietnamese). Note the green tops and the rooster - those are Huy Fong's!

    The entire Marie Sharp collection. I run through two bottles of the "Fiery Hot" Habanero hot sauce a year - buying over the Internet (and I live in LA). Spectacular!

    The wine selection is the best I've found in Iowa. Not limited to French wines by any means!

    Fish Tacos, Fries, burger one of the best. Sashimi and rolls good as is the market lasagne. Olive bar, cheese bar and red velvet cupcakes!

    One of the few places in Des Moines that carries my favorite Oasis Hummus made by Oasis Falafel out of Iowa City, IA. Their pita chips are pretty awesome too.

    They will not let me in here. They say that I must leave, but I am so hungry. I need to eat, I say. No, they reply, voices barely escaping their raspy throats. You may not enter here. So I do not.

    The only place I have ever seen a vegan Bánh mì and it is amazing. Vegan chili is also the best I've ever had. Non-meat options in general are winners.

    If you're getting food to go, ask if you can get it in a paper bag. The plastic ones don't hold up very well (we've had more than a couple instances where food ended up all over the car).

    Cannot beat their antipasti/olive bar. I also like their house hummus selection. And don't get me started on available cheeses and South Union breads...
