Sixteen Sufi dancers later, I feel like I traveled to Turkey and back. I highly encourage you to visit Casbah, Livermore, and request a table in the big room. The surrounding energy will transport you into a different world: smell the warm, slightly sweet cumin blends; savor Middle Eastern fusion dishes; listen to the mythical blends of the setar, harmonium and tabla and watch the whirling dervishes come alive. You will leave, planning your next vacation to Istanbul. "Afiyet olsun," "bon appétit."
