happy baby party
just got back from casablanca. it's a moroccan restaurant on fair oaks. kari was having her baby shower there. the babydaddy is moroccan, so she thought it would be appropro for a co-ed moroccan food party there, and it was an amazing time.
the food. so taste. a little spicy, a little sweet, a lot of flavor. the honey chicken kabob was seriously amazing and there was also this date/fig/powdered sugar/filo dough pastry thing that was amaze.
i've never been to moroccan food before and i want to know why no one has taken me!! you eat with your hands! i got to be a pig in public! picking at everything with my fingers. man the food was so taste.
pretty much all of it was amaze. and the owner and the "conehead" waiter (as he called himself, due to his traditional hat) were so cute i thought i was going to pop. they danced and sang and joked and ate cake with us (kari's husband - yep, they were married on the sly - is friends with them so kari was treated like royalty).
when you walk into the place it's like one large room, decorated with dim lights and lots of fabric. sort of like you walked into a tent. there are seats all around the perimeter of the room and small round tables up against those. these are surrounded by huge plush cushions to sit on. right before you start eating they bring the water to pour over your hands and a towel for you to dry and use for the rest of the night. then they bring out the food and you dig in! there was also a belly dancer and loud music. and it was really just an amazing baby shower. i had such a fun time. and i totally loved the place.
i think randall would heart this place too, so we should go sometime. any meat eaters want to join us? vegheads are welcome too, but really do you want to watch me devour a whole small chicken with my bare hands? yah. i didn't think so.
