A-to-Z Challenge: Yummy

A few weeks ago, I had a lovely dinner at a Mediterranean restaurant called Dallah Mediterranean Cuisine after hanging out at the computer hardware store. My boyfriend and his friend wanted to go after seeing this ending scene in a Shawarma restaurant from The Avengers. Yes, interesting reasoning for choosing a restaurant! 🙂

As for me, I appreciate a novel experience and I’ve read various articles about how Mediterranean food is very healthy. We walked over to Dallah’s down the street. The moment I walked inside the restaurant, I was taken to another world. I gazed at the beautiful unique decor.

Not sure if the company I was with was joking with me, but the dog on the shelf is a Greek god named Anubis. If I stare into its eyes, I would supposedly die. 😉 Anubis is affiliated with mummification and the afterlife. Anubis had various roles as a protector of tombs, an embalmer, a guide for souls.

The symmetry and pattern of these paisley designs kept my attention for a while. It reminds me of the flourishes I would see on old US dollar bills.

Not sure what this map was all about, but the story around the perimeter made me wonder what was going on. I thought it was like a profile of various explorers of a crew.

I have never seen a chandelier quite like this star-shaped one below.

Rested in the view from my seat – enjoying the twinkle of the sparkling lights above table.

I ordered a beef souvlaki wrap: a beef tenderloin kabob wrapped in a homemade tanour bread with garlic sauce, tomato, lettuce, pickles. The salad is light and refreshing. The souvlaki was delicious and filling.

I also ordered a set of 4 falafels which are golden brown spiced chickpea patties fried to perfection. Crispy on the outside and savory on the inside. The tzatziki sauce was a white cream that was light and creamy with a touch of lime. Dipping this warm bun into the cool cream was a delight!

I couldn’t forget the yummy dessert! I loved the baklava. I love the layers and the cream. Overall I had a wonderful day and will cherish this rich experience with friends. The waitstaff was responsive and understanding even when I accidentally spilled a glass of water on the table as I was trying to take a picture.

White Elephant #5

Teresa from The Haunted Wordsmith created a lovely event tag called White Elephant for the holiday season. I see this as a way for me to express appreciation for other bloggers I follow. 

For Donatella @ Donatellasansalone, when my tutor at school told me his travels and about the fashion of Italy, I didn’t truly understand what he was talking about. After seeing your blog, I finally get it! Thanks for the follow and thank you so much for sharing your bold fashion choices, your articles on beauty, travel, and lifestyle. For you, I thought you might enjoy a pop of yellow. 🙂

For Dominique @ 3CStyle, thank you for sharing with us the difference between style and fashion helped by the quote of Oscar De La Renta. I look forward to learning more about sustainable fashion. Your experience as a scientific journalist has brought another unique perspective to the fashion industry. I want to share with you a photo that reminds me of your project, “When Fashion and Nature Collide”
