[Friday 7th September 2012]
Thought it would be a good idea to go out for dinner this evening, to take our minds off the fact we were now a couple of days past the due date for the baby. Not that being a few days late is any problem at all, but as you can imagine it's a bit of a tense time and it seemed like a distraction would be a good idea.

I decided we should try out another Lebanese restaurant - as part of my ongoing quest to find the perfect foul medames - so we chose a place called Ishbilia in Knightsbridge, based on the fact it is the highest Zagat rated Lebanese restaurant in London.

All the food was good - and the foul medames was - but the real star of the show was the foul moukala. Rather than the dried broad beans / fava beans in foul medames, this was made with fresh broad beans, with garlic, coriander and olive oil. It was simple but quite sublime.

This would turn out to be mine and Chie's last meal out together before the baby arrived, so I'm glad we ate well!
