A few weeks ago, AC and I celebrated her last day at work with a low-key dinner at Taboon. We were early so easily snagged an outdoor seat on 10th Avenue, taking advantage of the mercifully lower humidity and moderate temperatures to eat and people-watch.
As always, we started with Taboon's fantastic, fantastic bread. AC had ordered hummus as her meal, which arrived with the bread. The hummus was quite good, creamy and adorned with some yogurt and some spiced oil (paprika? cumin?) and a few chickpeas for good measure.
I got the zucchini cakes, as always, easy on the oil. These were fantastic-- flavorful and hearty and surprisingly filling for their small portion. I always wish for more yogurt; the tiny splotch they provide is always just a tease.
Service was friendly, as usual, and they let us linger for as long as we wanted. So we did, picking at the bread, people-watching, and catching up. It was perfect.
