I stumbled into Maydan on a Monday night when it looks like the bar is fairly deserted. I also noticed that Monday is not too difficult to get reservations online.

So that's good for me, and Maydan is undeniably great. I ordered three item: the cauliflower with zhoug and lemon, lamb kabobs, and halloumi with crushed peanuts and honey.

My first bite, the cauliflower, was underwhelming, but it was just interesting enough to keep me going until I found this dish completely addictive with its background spiciness.

The other two dishes were outrageously, crazy delicious with so many bursts of flavor and spice that couldn't be contained within just one sensation. it came in waves. The lamb is shaved, but still just thick enough to contain some juiciness. The halloumi had been coated in spices and grilled but is served cold. The interplay of the spices, peanuts, and honey were sending my mouth into a tizzy.

I will be dreaming of that meal for some time to come, and if I could take my visitors there tonight, I would, for my second dinner in a row. It was that good.
