I had heard a lot about Kindness Kitchen â€” Stu blogged about it, NBC 7 did a piece on it, even our journalism department at SF State did a multimedia piece on it. Naturally, I was curious. In no way, shape or form am I considered poor, but I am definitely on a budget since I’m unemployed and living off loans. Also, considering I don’t get paid for the dumb shit I constantly do for Stu and how the cheap ass motherfucker doesn’t even pay me, I need all the love I can get (Just fucking with you Stu). So this past Sunday, I headed to Marahani to check this place out. I came to the conclusion that…
IT IS AMAZING.
I am probably going to be there every Sunday, even after I move. We were greeted warmly by a gentleman, who I assumed was the one running the charity operation. I realized at this point that I had forgotten my camera, which was an epic fail. Regardless, we were served a three course meal for FREE. REALLY. FREE. And as much as I thought it would lack in quality, I was wrong â€” it was probably some of the best indian food I’ve ever had. They gave us a lentil soup, a choice of drinks [I had chai and my best friend had the pomegranate lemonade, which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND], basmati rice, naan, veggie curry, potato and eggplant curry, chickpeas and spinach and tofu. THEN the guy comes out with two different desserts, both of which i did not get the names of. Regardless, it was an amazing spread:
I know most of you probably work on the weekend, considering the fact that your job is your biggest asset at the moment. But if you’re ever free, this is an amazing thing to do go on a Sunday. The vibe was elegant, the service was wonderful and people were ridiculously nice. The most puzzling thing to me? There were only three other parties besides us in the restaurant. How is that possible? Head there before the word really gets out!
