Birthday Candle or Sage on Fire?

//Birthday Candle or Sage on Fire?

North Abraxas never stops surprising me! I could go again and again and each time, something will happen that will leave me laughing and thinking that I need to put this in my blog!

So I went to have dinner with my cousin for her birthday and we got a seat outside right next to the entrance of the restaurant, we could clearly hear the loud and funky music from the inside, which made us a bit jealous of all the people sitting there by the bar.

I ordered the beef carpaccio as a starter and do not regret trying it out for the first time! The meat was tender, the spices were the best choice to put on, it really was amazing.

Next up, we ordered the Jericho green beans, something that is impossible not to order when eating at North Abraxas. The black pepper pizza came right after as well, another must at this spot!

My cousin and I then decided to have the spinach topped with Parmesan and it was so delicious! The spinach was perfectly cooked and tasted divine and fresh. The Parmesan was really the perfect topping to put on for a fun taste!

Now, we’re eating and talking when everyone started dancing, getting up and cheering inside by the bar, my cousin and I both looked at each other confused when all the chefs came to every table to give free Focacia they prepared.

We obviously got a piece and it was perfect!! The bread was crunchy, the cheese was melting and the tomatoes were fresh and cut into small pieces.

I then asked for a chocolate¬†cake and a candle for my cousin’s birthday, obviously, and to my surprise, the candle at North Abraxas isn’t exactly the candle we are all used to.


The waitress came with a big pan with sage in it, alcohol and put it on our table and lit it up on fire! NOW THAT’S A CANDLE!

It was already 30 degrees outside and we had a heater right in front of our faces, we laughed that we were melting right on the spot as we were waiting for the fire to turn off.

After five minutes, we digged into the chocolate cake, which was the perfect desert for our dinner.

I’ll be back… again North Abraxas!

Thank you for the lovely dinner! What is your favorite at North Abraxas?
