I'm sure I've said it before and I'll say it again...I love your food photos, they always get my appetite going! But the one photo that really caught my eye was that pink/green pomegranate/kiwi ice cream!! What a lovely combination of flavors and it gives me an idea to try those flavors together one day.

I'm sure your ice-cream will be more tasty then this one,I always knew pomegrante ia a red fruit.. not a pink one.. ;-)

Thank you for your kind comment !
Taype restaurant has a good deal for lunch , the food was better then years ago,when you order a dish.. you know you'll get the same taste for years..
I love eating the crispy 'crust' which held the dish (as shown in my picture, so I ate everyone's crust too...)
All desserts were yummy, the fried pineapple and banana too..(in the pic.) !
And yes ! the SPRING is here !
I'm suffering at the Israeli summer , every year again ..
Can the spring stay here for ever?.. :-)
