Shesh-besh, in addition to having a pretty cool sounding name, is an Azari (from Azjerbaijan) restaurant. The one we went to was located on the second floor, incidently above a Moo Moo, and had a fun staircase leading up to the restaurant.

I had lamb with rice that was more like rice with lamb. I think there was a grand total of three pieces of lamb, but it was still good. The uncooked onions really weren’t the highlight of the dish, but to be fair, the only time that I like uncooked onions is in salsa and tabbuleh, and when they’re finely chopped.

And for dessert, I had to have baklava. It’s different that the Greek style that I’m used to. The nuts are minced finer and the texture is a bit creamy. I think that there’s less honey and more refined sugar in the Azari version and the phyllo dough is less crispy, but it’s still delicious goodness. 😀
