FATTOUSH SALAD $9.50
Organic greens, tomato, cucumber, green onion with a garlic-lemon-sumac dressing and pita chips. Pretty sad I didn’t order the cauliflowers now.

TURKISH COFFEE $3.50
Made with rosewater and cardamom. The coffee took a while to make, and in desperation to leave early, I almost told the waitress to cancel my order. When she told me there’s a delicate way of brewing the coffee; something like 4 times — made to order. I had to wait for it. Best decision of my life? Yep. This coffee was THE BEST coffee I had to date in Vancouver. Truly.

Regret that I was in a major rush for this dinner, didn’t have enough time on hand to order some of their other specialities. I have to come back for that lamb. Omg. I know. I need that lamb in my life. The food at Nuba is amazing.

It is the simplest of meals made with the simplest of ingredients, but I’m positive I could never replicate it at home. And that’s pretty much what I’m looking for in a restaurant meal. All meats are halal, non-medicated, and hormone free. 4 other locations which serves up lunch & juice bar.

Oh and regarding the title. I meant to say it somewhere in my post but I got tangled up drooling over my own pictures. Nuba is a lost long family of mine.

I’m pretty sure of it.
