*NEW* NY Strip Steak Green Shermoula Flatbread with fresh Radish and Tomato Salsa – $9.00

NY Strip Steak Green Shermoula Flatbread with fresh Radish and Tomato Salsa, $9.00

Do not be fooled by the presentation here, this flatbread was awful. It was cold. It wasn’t even flatbread, it was a flour tortilla… a tortilla that tasted like it’d resided inside of an open bag for a week and went stale. The steak was cold and chewy.

The salsa was more liquid than solid. It was like leftover water from the salsa, versus the actual salsa. Please don’t get this. Save your money.

Spicy Hummus Fries with Cucumber, Tomato, Onions, Tzatziki and Chipotle Sauce – $8.00

Spicy Hummus Fries with Cucumber, Tomato, Onions, Tzatziki and Chipotle Sauce, $8.00

These are a Food & Wine classic. The Hummus Fries are very good, and very spicy. These are the same you can get at Spice Road Table. The vegetable mix on top helps cool things down and balance out the shaped blocks of hummus, making this dish not only unique, but really tasty. When it first premiered in 2016, with more fries and a smaller price tag, we felt this was a no-brainer of a recommendation. However, it’s getting hard to justify the ever-increasing price tag. There were only three of them for $8, so not such a great value here.

Chocolate Baklava: Rolled Phyllo Dough with Toasted Almonds and Dark Chocolate Sauce – $4.50

Chocolate Baklava: Rolled Phyllo Dough with Toasted Almonds and Dark Chocolate Sauce, $4.50

Baklava is difficult to make. The pastry takes hours of painstaking prep work requiring skills learned over many years. We would never be able to make the pastry properly. Morocco is not only able to make the pastry, but they make it well. It’s almost too good to be true. Believe the hype, because for the price you get an expertly crafted chocolate baklava that looks and tastes the part. Absolutely recommended.

Casa Beer (5.0% ABV) – $4.50

Nomadic Distribution describes Casa Beer as having an aroma of “light musk and hints of sweetness,” with a taste of “malts and nuts. Crisp and slightly dry. Pleasant, sweet undertones that lingers on the tongue.”

*NEW* Laroque Chardonnay, Carcassonne, Languedoc-Roussillon ($12/bottle) – $6.00

Monsieur Touton Selection, Ltd. describes Laroque Chardonnay: “Aromatic nose of white peaches, white flowers, melons, ginger and toasted brioche bun. Fresh and lively in the mouth with a bright, acidic backbone. Generous length with delicate texture, flinty mineral thread and creamy notes of vanilla, brioche and hazelnut.”
