Overwhelming garlic and pumpkin desserts

Two separate topics:

Attempted to visit the Magic Carpet and found it
closed on Saturday night at 6. (Is this typical?)
Unfortunately, since my restaurant of choice
was closed, we went to The Stinking Rose instead.
From that experience, I found out that you can taste
garlic 24 hours after eating it. As for the
meal...the mussels appetizer was excellent, and the
bread with the raw garlic/parsley spread was spicy.
The bunny with pancetta, olive and garlic was ok, and
the garlic ice cream was pretty foul.

Also, in theme with the holidays, had a seasonal
dessert at Saladang Song: tiny steamed pumpkin with
custard inside and salt-tinged coconut cream on the
side. Visually cool and it was a lovely way to end a
spicy Thai lunch. (only thing worth mentioning... an asparagus salad).
