Had lunch at Daube's today. had turkey sandwich w/green dressing, soup, and a cherry-almond muffin (yum). Good place. It wasnt teh one in the mall.

I'm leaving tomorrow afternoon, so I'm basically done here. Some updates: Tried teh Japanes Steakhouse. The sushi was mediocre, but its the only sushi in town. The filet mingon and fixins was alright....but I;m not a judge on Japanese steakhouses. It did bother me that they couldnt give ingredients on the lobster sauce cuz it is a "chef's secret". I like to know what i am eating.

The Chocolate Twist is a great chocolate shop. Ira makes a lot of stuff himself. pricey though. i lived the dark chocolate covered pistachios.

I went into teh cafe at the Crafty Mouse and told her to just pick me out somethign from the righthand case. she gave me a frosted cookie. turned out to be almond flavored. yum.

My g/f can't eat wheat so we hit the gluten free options. The Bread Baker (Miracle mile like crafty mouse and chocolate twist) has a case of stuff they made and froze that is gluten-free. and they make gluten-free pizza crust for The Pizzaman next door. The Pizzaman even delivers. My g/f was thrilled that she could eat pizza, and really liked it. said it was practically the same as normal pizza.

We also did gluten-free food shopping (since I'm leaving but she needs to stay a while so needs supplies) at the Gluten-free Cupboard (1833 3rd ave SE) and teh Good Food Store (seems liek a food coop). She found a lot of stuff that we can't normally find, so was happy.

Oh, not sure if i mentioned it, but we didnt like the vietnamese place. better pho can be had in the gallerie foodcourt.
