Springtime!

Lo and behold, for spring has finally made its way to Montreal!

And what better way to ring in the warm(er) weather than with a quick 'n fresh Lebanese takeout and yummy ice cream?

A plate of shish taouk from my favorite Basha outlet, the one in Carrefour Industrielle Alliance (downstairs of Paramount/Scotia Bank and Simon's).


"Double fraise" ice cream from Laura Secord.
(Psst, if you dislike the bland wafer cone but don't want to shell out for the pricey waffle one, ask for a sugar cone. It's relatively inexpensive but makes much a difference!)

It's funny how promptly the shish taouk craving came back. During summer, Lebanese was practically a weekly staple. But ever since the colder weather set in, I haven't felt the urge for anything "shish-ed". However, now that it's nice and sunny again: shish taouk, shish shwarma and mixed combo plates, here I come!

Lebanese cuisine is one I'm very unfamiliar with. That shish taouk looks so fresh and divine [perfect for a spring lunch] that I'm dying to try it. The pink stuff on the side, what is that my dear?

I think you guys get more Persian food in T.O.
You will try heaps of shish taouk next time you visit me! That pink stuff is picked lettuce salad.

(I must admit that your name threw me off for a sec, hee.)
