You'd Never See "That" in Cairo #3: A Unique Dining Experience

This is our group. Notice the dingy waitress in the background. That's my sister.

This is my meal. Notice it is served in a huge skillet.

Yesterday, we met up with a family that we knew from Egypt, and we had the fun experience of taking them to one of our favorite places to eat here in SW Missouri. The name of that place is "Lamberts".

"Lamberts" in a unique place to go eat, and it is unique for several reasons. The first reason is stated in it's logo, which is : "Lamberts Cafe: The Only Home of Throwed Rolls". The rolls at Lamberts are fantastic, and if you are not careful, you could easily get full on these rolls alone. But, even better than their taste is the fun experience of sitting clear across the restaurant and catching one of these rolls that is tossed to you from a young gentleman walking through the restaurant yelling "hot rolls". I often get paraniod thinking that at any minute one of these rolls might hit me in the back of the head, but so far, I have fared pretty good.

A second reason "Lamberts" is unique is it's menu. They provide "pass arounds" at no charge to those ordering from the menu. These "extras" are brought to you by servers carrying pots or other containers of fried okra, fried potatoes, macaroni and tomatoes, black eyed peas, and sorghum and honey. They also offer such a huge variety of entrees that you are sure to find something you will love. With each entree you also get a choice of 2 side dishes, and for those with a bigger appetite, everything, and I mean everything, is all-you-can-eat, so, absolutely no one goes away from "Lamberts" hungry.

The third reason "Lambert" is unique (to me anyway) is because my sister is a waitress there. She has been a waitress there for 10 years now and she still loves it. Kathy is one of the best waitresses I have ever known, and I am not just saying that because she is my sister. She has a very outgoing personality and she loves people. She also loves to make people laugh. If you look closely at the group picture above, the goofy-looking one in the back is her. I didn't even know she had snuck into this picture until I was looking at it later. It makes the picture all the more special to me.

  1. I am so glad you stopped by my blog. I am so very interested in having blogging friends from a lot of different countries. Culture, religion, history a my favorite subjects, after my family. I am not going to be able to travel anymore, as I used to. I would love to follow your blog. I enjoyed the restaurant story. Come again to visit. Blessings

  2. QMM, I too am looking for more blogs to follow and more blogging friends. Don't know if you noticed, but I live in Egypt. My blogs are kind of different than the norm. right now because I am in the States, but once I get back to Egypt, they will definately be more about some of the things you mentioned above. Thanks for dropping by.
