Waiting for fries at Diesel & Duke

Diesel & Duke

It was getting late, and we realised that we had no hand dinner. While Kiran and Bhavna went off to find a few more items for her AP project, Shaan and I walked over to Diesel & Duke. It's new to Princeton and located on a section of Nassau Street that seems to be jinxed. In the 18 years, I have lived in the area, about seven restaurants have opened and closed at the same address. I think Diesel & Duke is off to a bad start.

The sidewalk menu advertised a burger using the Impossible Foods vegan burger patty. I am not vegetarian or vegan, but the Impossible Foods vegan burger patty is so tasty that I prefer it over a beef burger. I was disappointed to learn that they had no Impossible Burger in stock. They had not had any in stock for almost a week. The person running the register claimed that Impossible Foods had a contract with Burger King and had sold all their stock. I find that hard to believe.

I was annoyed. I wanted to leave. But Shaan was hungry, and Kiran and Bhavna were expecting fries, so we placed our order and waited.
