Exotic flavors, diverse cuisine at <br>new NL bistro.

NORTH LIBERTY– One dish. That’s the secret for many restaurants to succeed. If you get that one dish right, the customers will come.
For Zameer Kahn, owner of the new Zaika Restaurant in North Liberty, that dish is Ghobi Manchurian, which features breaded and fried cauliflower (ghobi) covered in a mildly spicy red sauce.
Kahn said he created his special recipe for the Indochinese dish and others have copied it. Laughing, he said he’s seen it on the menu at other area restaurants.

Food For Thought

My mother called it Solitary rather than Solitaire. She taught my older sister Dorothy to play the game, and Dorothy passed it on to me when I was old enough to learn. Dorothy made up some of the rules, and I strongly suspect they were strictly to keep me from winning very often. Why would I think such a thing about the big sister who taught me to read and count and write in cursive before I was old enough for kindergarten? She also taught me that green was called orange, and vice versa.
