For my lunch, I picked the Lamb Kibbeh: grilled grain-fed halal lamb patties made with vegetables, pine nuts, burghul and aromatic spices. It was also served with hummus, salad, pickled cabbage, olives, pita and organic brown rice (other option: roasted potatoes).

The green hot sauce was optional, but it should be mandatory. It was wicked awesome! It didn’t have the ugh-sour taste like other hot sauces.

The lamb didn’t have that typical gamey flavour that usually deters diners. Rather, it was indeed tongue-smacking with spices. However, I found the patties to be overly salty on a whole. It wouldn’t have been that big of a deal if the tzatiki wasn’t salty either, but it was… I would suggest just spreading the tzatiki on the pita instead.

I was glad to see organic brown rice as an option; it definitely made me feel healthier. I definitely wanted more… MOARRRRR.
