Blloku, Tirana, Albania
Zoo and RestaurantWhile my husband and I finished our meal, our kids hopped around nearby cages, giggling as squirrels danced up and down tree branches inside. Chickens, geese, and cats wandered the grounds. After dinner we inspected the other animals--swans, goats, and bears (caged!). I'm not sure that I like animals in cages. But after oodles of driving and hectic traffic, an idyllic restaurant and zoo was a welcome combination.
The wait staff dressed traditionally, in crisp costume with colorful waist bands. Indoors, the atmosphere was elegant. Outdoors, the tables were rugged. The service was superb. We ate delicious food. The drink list was worthy of a celebration.
