The combination of  red skin potatoes, spinach, chili peppers, cilantro, chickpeas and spices made into a patty was pretty unique. Friends dipped into the spice yoghurt sauce was addictive. 

There nothing like have some unique yet fancy drinks to go with the food. Here are some of the cocktails that were introduced as well.
