We went here because we wanted to be on the patio and enjoy the sun. We ordered the following:

- Seasonal olives

- Humus with minced beef

- Deep fried cauliflower

- Lamb sausages

- Pacific cod in a tahini sauce 

First off, almost every dish was amazing except the lamb sausages. The humus with spiced minced beef was maybe the best humus I've ever had in my life. I could eat a whole dish of that to myself.

The deep fried cauliflower was done in a pomegranate molasses sauce. Nice balance of acidity and sweetness combined with the crunch and soft texture made this dish amazing.

Lamb sausage was a bit underwhelming compared to the rest of the dishes. Sausage were very narrow and thin, reminded me of thinner Chinese sausages. Taste was ok.

As for the pacific cod skillet, that tahini sauce was amazing hot, the cod was had a perfect sear on it, and it's just a great dish to dip your pita in. 

Service was pretty good, no complaints, beer selection is ok, I would suggest the Steamworks IPA over the 33 Acres of Sunshine that comes in a bottle vs the pint of IPA. Cocktails on the other hand, that's another story. I had a couple sips of the two that Lil got and they were amazing. I don't recall the names of them but I do recommend that you try a cocktail out yourself. 

Rating: 5/5 this is the type of food you dream about
