s an easy recipe for a delicious vegetarian dish called Eloss Madinah which is Arabic for ELOSS MEDINAH (FRIED TARO ROOT) RECIPE

Here’s an easy recipe for a delicious vegetarian dish called Eloss Madinah which is Arabic for “potato of the city.” This dish has a few other Arabic names, but to keep it simple we will just call it Fried Taro Root! Taro root is similar to potatoes, in taste and in texture, and can be found in any produce section. If you love the flavor of garlic and lemon juice, you will love this dish! 🙂


Taro root – 5-6
Garlic – 5 medium sized cloves, minced
Lemon – Juice of 2 lemons (more or less depending on your preference, we like a lemony taste)
Olive oil – 1/4 cup


1. Peel taro root (using potato peeler). After peeling it, wipe clean with towel or paper towel, do not wash with water. *Root may feel sticky, that’s normal!

2. Cut taro root into chunks

3. In a deep dish pan (with a top), heat olive oil on medium heat

4. Once oil is hot, add taro root and cook it on each side for 3-5 minutes or until browned

5. In the meantime, mix lemon juice, minced garlic, and salt (to taste) in a separate bowl.

6. Add garlic and lemon mixture to pan once taro root has browned on each side. Cover pot and simmer for 10 minutes. *(We added 1/2 cup of water to mixture to make it juicier, this is optional)*

Sahtan! 🙂

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
