Zon's/Ali's Roti

Ate at Zon's for the first time even tho it's just 6 blocks from home (still haven't been to Perdix which is even closer) and had the best meatloaf ever. Had a very tasty sauce with it, some nice onions in it that may have been caramelized and a strip of bacon on top. The potatos were advertised as horseradish mashed but I seldom taste whatever's supposed to be added in. They were good anyway as were a side of carrots. Very wintery meal but it hit the spot. The only low point was the butter for the bread had a bit of refrigerator funkiness to it. My friend got the Tues. hot dog special, two dogs in buns, potato salad and cole slaw. He really liked the sides and said the dogs were okay but no big deal. We got nice service at the bar where they just serve wine and beer. Prices for entrees are about $11-16 which is good, but $11 for a cheeseburger seems high in comparison. That's almost Bristol Lounge prices. It's a nice place to have in the neighborhood.

Got lunch with a long lost friend found thru Chowhound at Ali's on Tremont St. Had only heard about this place so I followed his lead and got the roti, a small goat curry one. It was good but the bones in the goat were a pain. Mine came with yellow rice and chick peas, he got a larger sized boneless chicken curry w/ rice and potato. I think I'd skip the roti part next time and just get a plate cuz they're too hard to pick up and eat and the roti isn't noticeable enough. Then again, the roti is cheaper, mine came to $7.29 with a can of soda. Glad I went but won't need to rush back.
