PHOENICIA MEDITERRANEAN CUISINE -- HIGHLAND PARK, ILLINOIS

I had the great opportunity to dine at Phoenicia for lunch and dinner recently. Every employee at this restaurant makes you feel at home and a truly welcome guest. We had a grilled chicken dish at one meal and roasted lamb at another. Both were exceptional as were the sides served with them. But i want to tell you about my new passions there. They make a babaganoush that is so light, fluffy and smokey. No seeds and no eggplant peel in it. Very different than what i have been used to and absolutely the best. Their carrot soup is exceptional. It is thick and creamy, although it has not a drop of dairy product in it. It has the most wonderful taste and texture and puts all others to shame. OH, yes i forgot, the baklava. You must try theirs. It is flaky, sweet, mouth watering, topped with chopped pistachio, cant get enough of it good.

SORRY MY ERROR: i meant to type babaganoush and in error typed humus. Sorry.
