Day 4-Brooklyn

Uncle Larry drove us to Brooklyn to meet up with Elicia for lunch!

Typical New York apartments that we usually see in the movie.

Elicia's apartment is on the 1st floor.

Elicia showing us her room.

She has a little loft for sleeping.  We went up there to take a look.  This really remind me of Paris where apartment are tiny but they cost a fortune to rent.


We decided to walk around her neighborhood.  Across the street there is a Farmer open market so we are checking out...


Lots of fresh local produce


Organic vegetables on display!


We are just looking around to see what they have to offer..



For Lunch Uncle Larry and Auntie Kim took us to The Black Iris restaurant, a middle eastern restaurant in the neighborhood.

Lamb chops marinated baby lamb chops, grilled to perfection, served with rice, green salad, and yogurt sauce


Beef Kabob served with rice, green salad, and yogurt sauce


Shish Kebab chunks of lamb, marinated, seasoned with special spices, grilled over charcoal on skewers.

Black Iris Individual 10 Inch Pitzas (pizza) with grilled eggplant, zucchini, spinach, fresh mozzarella and herbs



Falafel croquet of chick peas, mixed with garlic, onion, parsley, and spices deep fried

Their home made pita is simply delicious!



We ate all the meat but we could not finish the rice and vegetable because they gave too much! It was a great meal.

Black Iris is a very friendly place to eat.  The servers were very attentive and friendly!
