Cazba has won so many local polls for best ethnic cuisine that you'd think owner Max Mohammadi and his family might sit on their hands and maybe just judge a future competition.
But no. The man who in my heart will always be the "Mayor of Boise" continues to work his culinary concept of "Near East" fusion, as well as experiment with new venues such as Opa and, more recently, Opium.
In this podcast episode, the boys of "Behind the Treasured Menu" (Chris Oates, Scott Nicholson, and me) let Cazba do the ordering and strap on the old feedbag with a combination of Egyptian, Greek, and Lebanese inspired dishes while we talk with Max about the history of his restaurant, its place in the community, and Max's undiminished political ambitions.
This podcast goes great with a cup of "Orient Espresso", by the way...but more about that later.
