I can't tell what we were eating here, but I bet it was good!
I do remember this was the first - and, sadly, only - time we had falafel. We called them "Syrian hushpuppies" because they were deep-fried and reminded us of, well, hush puppies. We had them on a sandwich from this place in the downtown area.
Besides restaurants and street eating, we went to cafés quite often as I discussed recently. Here I am with Samer and Basheer.
The night we met Mohammad Hazzaa we went to this place.
He is the one who took us up the mountain and met us for supper at Anas Restaurant.
