The Lamb Shank Friki was everything I could ever hope for, and more. It included braised lamb shank, Syrian whole wheat, cucumber and tomato salad, a palmful of raisins, almonds and pistachios, and plain yogurt with pomegranate seeds. The lamb was extremely tender and moist. The wheat was anything but plain since it absorbed the meat’s juices. The raisins were a sweet touch, and the nuts provided a great crunch. The salad and yogurt added zest and freshness, and each pomegranate seed provided a tiny burst of fruitiness. Individually, the elements were truly tasty, but collectively, the combination of textures and flavors created magic. A little bit of everything in every spoonful was absolute bliss.
