There it was, on the menu:
Braised lamb shank with onions, carrots, celery, thyme and rosemary. Cooked slowly until tender topped with Jordanian yogurt sauce Served with grilled fresh vegetables over basmati rice.
Our meal began with the house salad, sliced just right to fit a bite neatly into your mouth without making a mess, and topped with perfectly crisp crunchy bits of toasted pita. It had a drizzle of a spicy dressing with a slight tang and was accented with a light dusting of seasoning. Love that none of the leaves are huge - all fit nicely into a bite. Total flavor bomb opener to get your pallet ready for the main course.
The lamb shank arrived looking amazing. Topped with a fragrant light green sauce, the aroma makes you start salivating before you’ve even had the first bit. As a side, perfectly cooked, aromatic yellow rice, accompanied by sautéed squash. The shank is all lamb, tender and forkable. The sauce is cool and vibrant and offsets the deep lamb flavor. The shank was deep and dark and the fats melted into butter… Mmmmm… This was a lot of fun to eat and the spices take you away.
Take your time and enjoy the flavors. You’ll be back for more…
