Mediterranean Food

I love almost all food that is Mediterranean. Here in Richmond we no longer have access to a Lebanese restaurant. I'm very sad about that. I love Lebanese baklava the best of all. Rosewater and pistachios instead of honey and walnuts like the Greeks. But, I can get some really good hummus and baba ghanouj. We're having a cook out next weekend so I'm definitely looking forward to our first grilled Halloumi of the season. If you don't remember Halloumi, click here.

I never did try it with kebabs as I mentioned in that post from last year. We also never tried it for breakfast. Maybe this year.

I was there recently. It was great and the baklava is all rosewater and pistachios. Great place.
