Culinary detour

27 March 2006
Yet another great local experience today. After walking the Via Dolarosa, we hung out in a little shopping market for a bit and found a good back-alley coffee shop (Liam, you will appreciate this). They served real Arabic coffee that they make a cup or two at a time. It consists of one very large scoop of coffee some sugar and some cardamom that goes into an amount of boiling water that is much less than we would expect. The result is a strong, spicy, sweet coffee that is a little on the thick side. As a bonus, you can look at the grounds at the bottom of the cup when you are finished. ☺
