The lamb has quite a kick to it. It’s a tender and well-cooked, hearty kebab.

The chicken is tender and flavorful, covered in spices. The carrot-chickpea salad is fresh. It’s served quite cold, but it didn’t hinder the meat.

Both options are great.

This is a nice, light cake with subtle orange flavor, well complemented by the chocolate piece. The ginger mousse is even more subtle, despite being the largest ingredient.

*NEW* Stem Ciders Lavender Apple Hard Cider, Denver, CO (5.8% ABV) – $5.00

Stem Ciders describes their Lavender Apple Hard Cider as being “infused with dried lavender” while having “floral, cinnamon and cardamom spice notes,” a “bright” color, and an “off-dry” finish.

From correspondence with Woodchuck Cidery, the Cinnamon Nutmeg Hard Cider, also known as Spiced Apple Hard Cider, is “a balanced cider with notes of apple and bright cinnamon and a nutmeg finish.”

*NEW* Bold Rock Ginger Turmeric Hard Cider, Nellysford, VA (4.7% ABV) – $5.00

There’s probably not a lot of alcohol in this one, but it was well-balanced. It’s not syrupy like other festival drinks, which was nice. It’s quite refreshing and takes a pretty picture for the budding food photographers out there. We highly recommend this one.
