Real Tabbouleh

have been making this for so many years, that
it really isn't a recipe, but this is the best I can do

Tabbouleh (Parsley Salad)

1/4 to 1/2 cup burghul, fine cracked wheat
2-3 bunches fresh finely chopped parsley
2 large fresh tomatoes (diced)

I use cherry tomatoes, as I am allergic, and this way others can have tomatoes in the dish.

1/2 cup finely chopped fresh mint leaves
6 finely chopped green onion
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (this is to taste
salt (as desired)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
a dash of all spice (as desired)

Wash chopped mint and parsley then drain well.
put the burghul in a bowl. It will take a few times
to really know how much you need. Some like the salad more parsley and other like it more burghul.
I like a little more parsley.
cover it with the hottest tap water, just to almost cover the burghul. Then add enough fresh lemon juice
to cover it. Let stand until dry. The burghul will absorb
the juices and water. Then fluff it with a fork. This process may take 20 minutes to 1/2 hour.
Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
Add olive oil and lemon juice, toss the mixture well.
put it in the fridge with a cover.
When You are ready to serve it, it must be tasted and refreshed with more olive oil and lemon juice
toss well

ok I just called his cell phone
he is out having a great time
he also thinks I am nuts.....I always have such fun there

Cafe Habana
17 Prince St | At Elizabeth St

In traditional dives, taste often surpasses style. Café Habana is no exception. The cramped quarters in this Cuban-Mexican eatery, located on a residential corner off Elizabeth Street, may scare away patrons desiring cushy seating and quiet conversation. But the perfectly seasoned roasted pork, grilled steaks and sautéed chicken makes this café a delicious dining destination. The Mexican-style grilled corn, a gooey mixture of fresh corn topped with chili powder, melted cheese and lime, is a crowd-pleasing, albeit messy, delight that comes with a cup of individually wrapped toothpicks. Follow the corn with the marinated skirt steak with rice and beans, and a mojito, and soon you'll forget all about the sardine-like setup. — Joy Armstrong
Extra

The space is tiny, so prepare yourself for at least a half-hour wait to be seated. Once you make it inside, settle in and try not to move until after the meal. Otherwise, you'll bump the waitstaff.

Recommended Dishes...Cuban corn ------ mussels
Cuban sandwich, $6.75; sautéed chicken breast in garlic and lemon sauce, $11.25; mango and jicama salad, $6.95

Hours
Daily, 9am-midnight
