"The Israeli dramatic comedy Cafe Tales
stars Moshe Ivgy, one of the country's most popular actors.
When Leah founded the Braun Cafe in 1959, it became a gathering
place for the leading artists and intellectuals of the day.
Many years later, creative types still frequent it,
but they are all broke and down on their luck.
Seeing an opportunity, a group of developers seek any
and every method available to drive Leah away
and take the property for themselves.
But struggling writer Yutz (Ivgy), realizing the value
of the cafe to the neighborhood, bands the regulars
together to fight the shady real estate developers.
CAFE TALES was nominated for five Israeli Academy Awards in 2003."
We recently saw this film and were pleasantly surprised
at how well the acting, story and production was.
It's worth seeing if you ever watch Foreign Films.
we were hard pressed to find any decent
ethnic eateries near us. The Saigon is in
Ft Wayne on Calhoun St and in a neighborhood
we hear that people do not especially like
to go. For us, the racial mix is what has attracted
us, not to mention the fresh and inexpensive food.
No matter when, or who is in there, people
acknowledge one another if not with a simple
smile and hello, but some sort of casual conversation.
The condiment to the left is what we put into
our sauce that goes over the dish. Simply,
it adds some kick to the dish and does
a good job of clearing the sinus's.
Of course, the meal is not complete without
a Vietnamese Coffee!
Where can you go in indy-anna to purchase
Thai Basil, Fresh? A huge bag for $1.00.
Jasmine Tea, and other items well
worth seeking out, and not found anywhere else.
And again, unlike most groceries, people will at
least smile, as most people shopping here
don't seem to speak much English.
