Catching back up with friends in Los Angeles has been great. I work with Victor and Raffi, so we met up with them, their wives and a couple who are friends of Raffi and Kristine. Reservations were at Carousel in Glendale. The Middle Eastern cuisine was delicious, and the food just kept coming out well after we were full. I could have eaten nothing but the muhammara, which is a dip of chili peppers, crushed walnuts and pomegranates. Of course, I forgot all about the spicy dip once the boureg and kofta arrived. By the time the entree appeared, we were pretty much done. As much as we wanted them, the kabobs were just going to have to put in a doggy bag.
After dinner, we enjoyed the dancing entertainment. There was a mix of Latin-style dancing and belly dancing. Click here to see some photos of the dancers.
Dancers in the after-dinner show
If you are ever going to be in the area on a Friday or Saturday night, this would be worth making reservations to. We enjoyed a delicious, filling meal, many drinks, a dancing show and even some dancing of our own, for one hundred bucks per person. That was five hours of fun, so it was certainly worth the money for a great night out. And, we met another couple, Alfred and Lina. Can hardly wait to figure out plans for another evening out!
