A Ramen and Friends event in Kensington, Brooklyn at Cafe Sim-Sim (Azerbaijani food). Yoshie set up a set menu with the owner/chef at $30 a head. It was originally $50/pp, but she got it knocked down for a smaller menu. Good thing she did, because there was so much food. I actually thought the first course was all the food we were eating. But they kept bringing out more dishes.

My favorites were the Potato Salad, the Panfried Potatoes with Chanterelle Mushrooms (a pile of deliciously greasy homefries and the mushrooms were great), the Kutabi crepe (thin and filled with lamb meat), the buttery meat dumplings (throw a dash on salt on it and it’s perfect).

By the time the kebab platter came out, I was so stuffed. The platter was filled with chicken, lamb, ribs and fries. My favorite was the ground lamb wrapped in an tortilla.

The place is BYOB, but I think they might have some beer available. It was such a good deal and great food. I’d recommend getting a group together and setting up a dinner event. Great job, Yoshie. A day later, I’m still full and drunk.

    That kabab platter looks handsome. I think I could finish the whole plate sitting down with 2 beers.
