What a creative and exciting way to spend Xmas night! Linda and Shir made our Xmas night so unique and unforgettable! From the moment we walked in their crispy-clean and charming apartment, Linda and Shir welcomed us and made sure each of us had a great experience with extremely gracious and warm hospitality throughout the night. It was my friends and my first time to experience Pan-African style foods. Every new dish was served wowed us as if we just opened Xmas gifts. Linda gave us an interesting introduction to each dish. We learned new food culture and tasted them and exchanged our comments and excitements with other guests we just met. A cute 12 years old guest was next to my seat and totally comfortable and happy throughout the dinner. People with different cultural backgrounds and age groups all had a great time at Linda and Shir’s creative African Xmas dinner. I can’t thank them enough.
