The food was excellent! The service was prompt. and the ambience was nice and calm. If Manami and I happen to be in the area again we would not hesitate to stop in for lunch. The price was reasonable, around $10 each for the buffet. There was lamb stew, rice with lentils, albalu polow, Tzatziki, hummus, and lightly crisp flat bread, and more. One thing we noticed, there was no “american food” on the table. I wish this happened at more ethnic restuarants, instead of sticking a cheese pizza beside the gyros or the chow mein.
After that excellent lunch we made our way over to the Zilker Botanical Garden. This place is nothing new, but it is our retreat of choice when we want to escape for a couple hours. Even in 100 degree weather, most parts of this little park are still pleasant. The air has that oxygen rich smell that humans call “invigorating”. Manami and I agreed yesterday that the air smelled “green”. The only thing that could make this park better would be if it were closer to home.
