Thanks all! I can't believe I didn't ask the waiter, since I know the capacity DBF and I have to get obsessed about totally random things. It's really quite ridiculous.
Anyhow, after spending a few minutes studying the pictures on cook's thesaurus and eating my leftovers for lunch, I think they're either fennel or cumin. I'm actually thinking fennel, which I completely forgot about last night. Why I remembered ajowan and forgot fennel is beyond me. I think I'll him it's fennel, so we can both be wrong! Thanks again!
