It is my first working day of the New Year and I am at lunch. I forgot the left over salad from yesterday evening and I did not feel like a sandwich. So I stopped at the first restaurant in my path. This happens to be Karaam a Lebanese place along the Uxbridge Road. I ordered the Batata Harra meal and Jallab drink.
