We started off the evening with smokey baba ganouge. I always love the smokey eggplant flavour!
Eggplant oven roasted with onion, tomato, garlic and spices. Some of the best eggplant I've ever had, it was super soft & fragrant.
Fried cauliflower served with a tangy tahini sauce and parsley. Such a nice combination, love the tahini on top!
My sister enjoying some homemade rose lemonade.
Aromatic spiced fish rubbed in spices and fried with tahini, walnuts, coriander and sumac. Such flavour! The fish was beautifully cooked and even though it was fried, it wasn't greasy at all.
Filo pastry rolls filled with lamb, pine nuts and pomegrante molasses. Again, amazing flavours! As you can see, I've been eating meat occasionally when I'm out although I have no intentions of cooking it!
Sweets to share! Baklava & turkish delight.
My mum ordered Lebanese coffee. Super strong but it tasted so good...you really did need some sugar in it though! I loved the pot it came in!
Yummo! We had such a nice time & I'd definitely go back! Even though the restaurant is small, it was so busy and lively. The flavours were spot on... all the herbs, spices and tahini dressings.
I gave my parents a little gift of T2 tea called "White Monkey Jasmine", a mixture of green and jasmine tea. The trick to buying gifts I find, is to buy something you can use as well ;)
Hope you're having a lovely week!
