Have You Reached the Limit of Café Natasha's Unlimited Hummus?


Visiting Café Natasha's Kabob International (3200 South Grand Boulevard; 314-771-3411) for  my 100 Favorite Dishes, I learned that the restaurant now hosts an "unlimited hummus bar" from 4-7 p.m. on Tuesday. The deal is this: You pay $10, which scores you one PBR, Bud product or well drink and all the hummus you can eat. Because I have a warped mind, my first thought was, "Has anyone ever been cut off from the unlimited hummus bar?"

I asked my server whether this had occurred. "I don't think that's happened yet," she said, giving me the sort of panicked look you save for strange men who order a plate of beef tongue and then ask you whether anyone has maxed out your unlimited hummus bar.

Which got me to thinking even more about the concept of unlimited hummus. What would be a reasonable point to cut someone off? If no one has been cut off, does that mean individual diners have reached their own point of hummus saturation before what Café Natasha might consider a reasonable limit?

So of course we have to hold a contest. Share a story of your attempt* to reach/exceed either your or own or Café Natasha's limit on its "unlimited hummus bar" in the comment section of this post. Most entertaining story, as judged by yours truly, will win something from the prize vault.

* - We won't verify the details. So, you know, have fun.
