Royal Blue Grocery

I happened to be walking on Congress Ave and just as I passed the Hideout I could hear very faint oldies Bollywood song “Chalte Chalte”. I was so taken back that I had to turn around and find where it was coming from. Turns out it was coming from this grocery store.

Lamberts Downtown Barbecue

I saw this place mentioned in “Meat & Potatoes” (on their BBQ Madness Show). It looks really fancy, but the food looked really good. Yes, I know BBQ and “fancy” doesn’t really go together – but something about this place looked different.

Maybe I will be disappointed, but won’t know till I try it ;~)
