The wonder and magic of Shakshuka

It’s about time for me to admit it. I like food with unique names. Shakshuka. Like…when you say that to someone not in the know, their first reaction is, “Whaaaaaa?” And I LOVE THAT!

There used to be zero dishes I could order straight off the menu (keep in mind I’m nine years post-op folks).
