The mind is like muscle, you need to flex every part of it or face atrophy at your peril. Right now if my life were a mind gym, I´d be doing some hardcore workout on the joy machine, in a bid to beef up my happiness core strength. So I´m savouring those little innocuous moments of pleasure that pepper my average day. And one of my more recent precious moments has been a blissful reunion with a favourite tasty morsel, which since coming to these shores has been barely sampled, that of Baba Ganoush.
Not your typical fayre in a tapas joint, this celebration of the aubergine can be exclusively found in ´El Ríncon del Beirut´ on Calle Calatrava, amongst other middle Eastern classics such as falafels, kebabs, hummus and lots of lamb. It´s fast food at its best; fresh, home cooked, infused with Middle Eastern spices and served in a Fez. What’s not to like.
