Mmm, this dessert was SO good! I loved that it wasn’t too sweet, and all the different textures and flavors were lovely. It was fun scooping up the delicious orange-caramel sauce from the bottom for a perfect spoonful.

I liked this dish. The lamb was tender, juicy and flavorful and I liked the different garnishes. Everything was nicely prepared. Eat it with some of their pita and you have a delicious bite!
