Santanu introduced me to Dishdash in old Sunnyvale. It's an extremely popular spot, even with very efficient service. Our food was excellent, making the wait for the table worthwhile.
We started with a cold appetizer platter. These six dishes offered an amazing variety in not just taste but also texture. These little plates encompassed an amazingly large band in the middle Eastern food spectrum.
My main dish was the lamb. Chunks of lamb came buried in the rice, all surrounded by an extremely flavorful and rich sauce. The lamb was succulent and tender. I had to restrain myself from gobbling it down.
