After all the museum visits, we were ready for a late lunch. This time, Muhammad brought me to another traditional restaurant that is located across the road from a heart hospital. If I recall correctly, the hospital is attached to a university so there were quite a lot of students around the area.
I requested Muhammad to choose and order his favourite meals for me to try, and oh, boy! He sure went riot with the order! (Muhammad, if you're reading this, just kidding! 😁) Well, he did order his favourites, I think, and he did choose well...
Kashkbademjan = eggplant + sour milk + mint + olive + walnut = yummy
Kufta = (rice + meat + bean) mashed together = smashing!
(It was however too big we didn’t finish it)
From a pot, we have Dizzi = meat + bean
The gravy was taken out and mashed with some bread. And the "leftovers" were then mashed with that crusher thingy...
... to get this! 😁
We then ate this with some local bread like shown above...
Looks "weird", and not to forget a bit messy as well, I know, but they tasted good! 😊
And last but not least, we had some simple dessert consisting of some pastries and dates...
Note the sugar crystal sticks on the plate...They are saffron flavoured sugar crystal sticks, which are used to replace sugar in your tea.
Needless to say, after a 4-course lunch, we left the restaurant full and happy (+ a bit dizzy, if I may add), and ready for the next museum on the list! 😊
