I’d be looking hard at the Laban, Falafel or Alsultan salad for starters and one of the grilled lamb dishes for my entree. (I haven’t had lamb in a while. 😉)

Just arrived. I think laban was on the side last time was delicious. Falafel here is good. Ok I'll go with grilled lamb.

Falafel with a piece of kubba I swapped with my brother in law. Kubba was minced lamb inside.

Fantastic meal everyone seemed to enjoy it even the inlaws.

Just pizza but flavours might be different.

Cheesy garlic scrolls.

Pizzas are "large" which here means 10". From NZ Domino's.

Mr Wedge
Potato wedges, mayo, meat etc.

And some sort of burger flavour pizza. Had a gherkin/cheese taste.

Hell, I li
Expat Americans generally like the Mr Wedge and kebabs.

They struggled with the bacon and egg pizzas with potato slices on top though.

Can't find Chicago style deep dish though we do have American style pizzas.
I live in Dallas, and only know one place to get a decent Chicago style pizza. Not surprisingly, the owner is from Chicago.

I've got American friend over here and he likes Dominoes here.

He can't remember everything though he has been back occasionally but doesn't eat everything while he's there.

Chicago pizza is one thing I can find though. I found a couple from USA that sold Gumbo (recently closed due to Covid).

Gumbo of all things but haven't found Chicago Pizza.

There’s an Indian-owned pizza place just around the corner from me- takeout/delivery only- that has a limited but surprisingly good menu.

They do nothing better than any of my other favorite pizza joints*, but everything they do is good enough that we often buy from them because they’re closer. We’ve used them for the better part of a decade, and I’ve probably tried 85% of their menu. But recently, we decided to try a couple of things we hadn’t yet.

Well, as it turns out, their cheesy garlic bread is pretty good. And their Buffalo wings are too. Again, not as good as my faves, but definitely good enough.

The Buffalo wings will probably be bought more frequently than the other apps because theirs are milder than most, but cooked to tender, juicy perfection. So, what they lack in punch, they make up for in texture. And the fact that they’re mild will appeal to my parents a bit more.





* except their Indian fusion pizzas, of course

Cheesy garlic whatever works well. Garlic breads an old favorite here. Pizza place serves it up with parmesan cheese in a shaker.

Some if our closet places are turning into favorites, breakfast menu anyway.

I’ll be making some tomorrow, in fact. My paternal aunt brought us a big loaf of what the locals call french bread (it isn’t), so I thought I’d season it up and give it a trip through the ol’ toaster oven.

Mostly that, yep.

I’ve got parsley, black pepper and garlic powder. There’s also loads of butter, and a few cheeses on hand that would work very well residing in my fridge. Some of the recipes- yes, recipes- I've seen include extra virgin olive oil or outright sub out butter with it.

Sounds familiar. The classic one is french baguette garlic butter. All sorts of bread and condiments now.

No pix, but I had a falafel sandwich for lunch. Kinds like a po-boy, but with tahini and tzaziki instead of mayo, a pita instead of French bread, and falafel instead of oysters.

Pretty good!
