These past couple of days have held birthdays of a few people close to Chris and me. On the 28th, it was my parents’ 28th anniversary and my aunt’s 54th birthday. Last night, we celebrated our good friend Wes’ birthday at an Israeli restaurant in Philadelphia called Zahav.
Five of the six of us had never been to this place before, and we were all pretty much blown away by how good the food was. Plus, it was tapas style, so we were all able to taste a little bit of everything. My favorite presentation, though, had to be the starter salatim, which had eight different salads.
While the portions were small, we had so many dishes that we were all stuffed after the meal…but not stuffed enough to decline dessert! Cashew baklava, yum…
And here’s Wes blowing out the candle from his dessert (the Halvah mousse):
