Whole Foods Take Out

Apparently not the smartest couple, we keep making the same mistake over and over again: Whole Foods Deli.

For the third, and last, time we tried some of their foods. Tabouli that was completely tasteless (hey, go to produce and pick up a lemon!), the only baba ghanooj made with no garlic (or at least you couldn't taste it) and lamb kabobs (okay, we cooked them but they prepped them) that were high in fat and gristle. I guess I'm spoiled because I usually buy leg steaks and make my own.

Whole Foods is so convenient to us we just want to make it easy some nights. A couple of things have been passable, including a pretty good mushroom soup. But some of it is just awful -- and expensive; I was tempted to take it back.

Anyone else tried their stuff? This is the Portland downtown store, but I'd be interested in comments from anywhere -- perhaps others are better.
