Babaghanoush – More than a side dish

If somebody told me a year ago that I would be eating only vegetarian food and be so full I’d have to unbutton my pants I wouldn’t believe it. The idea of getting full by only eating vegetable dishes was unbelievable until December 2016, when for the first time I visited Babaghanoush restaurant in Prishtina.

To tell you the truth I was very sceptical, but I thought that it didn’t hurt to try it (and I was going on a date and I wanted my choice to be cool). It turned out that Babaghanoush has a very modest interior, very simplistic. Every time that I went to Babaghanoush, the decor was a hot topic amongst the people who were eating there, so it is a very good conversation starter. If it happens that you have an architect with you (like my sister) then they will tell you all the history about the paintings hanging on the walls. As far as the food is concerned, everything I tried was delicious, but what I always go for is anything that has avocado, because I love avocado; babaghanoush of course; falafel, and the mushrooms with cheese, which when I tried I said to my friends “this is like orgasm for your mouth.”

Also, when I don’t have a clue what to eat (which is very often) I just tell the waiter to bring a tray of mixed bowls for as many people as there are at the table.
