joolz, in Bend Oregon

As you may know we are now in Bend OR. This is the town of my birthplace, where we bought the motor-home and where my mother, brother and sister currently reside. If you have never been to Bend you should definitely check it out! If you are into food, shopping, skiing, boating, hiking, fishing, camping, and especially golf, Bend Oregon is a place you should add to your travel itinerary.
 We had dinner at Joolz last night.  It's the kind of place you want to hang out all day and nibble on small plates and do wine parings with their extensive wine list. There are many local fresh ingredients done to perfection.  The food is best described as Mezza meets Mesa. The first plate we had was Hummus on the Range (hummus with pan seared local Elk) followed by Kibbe (lamb meat balls with roasted tomatoes and garlic) and the  Halloumi cheese sun kissed Tomato appetizer. Delicious oven roasted cauliflower was to follow and finally a date cake with warm caramel sauce that was simply out of this world good,good,good! I am by no means a baker but this cake really makes me wish I was and may even make me try. (again) My brother had the lamb and chicken kebabs. The lamb was tender, juicy and perfectly cooked.

We will for sure be back to Joolz before we leave town.  Anyplace with such a great happy hour is always on my list of places to frequent!
