Dining and Dancing
We recently went to Kan Zeman Restaurant in Palo Alto and had some Mediterranean cuisine after a long time. Its situated right on University Avenue(with parking conveniently nearby) and is a good place for a night of dining and (belly) dancing.
The restaurant has a good vegetarian selection, which is an important criterion for any restaurant we go to. I had the Vegetarian Magluba, which was really tasty and not too heavy either. My wife had the Falafel Plate while Kavya started with some yummy Lentil Soup and then had a bit of both our entrée’s. We wrapped up dinner with some very tasty Baklava.
They have belly dancing every night and though the restaurant is not very spacious and the dancer had to squeeze herself between the tables, she put on a good show. Kavya and her friend (who was responsible for Kavya not being her usual, shy self) joined the dancer and repeated some of her moves with the other patrons cheering. It was really cute watching the two of them on the floor. Karthik, for his part, never took his eyes off the dancer the entire time she was on the floor. I guess her colorful dress and the clinking of her jalras really caught his attention. He started crying if she came too close but otherwise was completely enraptured by her. It came to the point where some of the patrons were looking at him rather than the dancer and laughing at the way he was staring at her(his perennial drooling didn’t help matters either!).
All in all, a fun night for the entire family...
