What else I’m cooking with…

What else I’m consuming…

I not too long ago had a phenomenal lunch at newly arrived restaurant NOMAD. Every part was scrumptious from the wood-fired flatbread with zaatar to the smoked mussels with toum. The olive oil ice cream sandwich with halva, pistachio and honey was additionally a standout.
