In short, I’m obsessed.
Even better baba ghanouj.
Delicious falafal and fried cauliflower.
Their salad is fresh and flavorful.
Their pita bread is soft and addicting.
I wasn’t crazy about their tabouli but I’ve only had tabouli like once before and it’s been years, so I’m probably not a fair or good judge.
They offer tempeh! And it’s tasty! I think they are the 3rd restaurant in town I’ve found that offers tempeh. (That’s the falafel in the upper right hand corner. I had to get a side of it with my tempeh pita.)
And their chicken is tasty too. (I had a bite of my friend’s.)
Their wine list is meh, but that’s OK because the food is so incredible.
Great patio dining on a quiet stretch of 4th street.
White lights hang from the trees that overhang the outdoor dining. I love white lights. I just do.
The owner said all the recipes are his mother-in-law’s, which is cool. And the service is great.
Verdict: Two very enthusiastic thumbs up. Maybe I’ve gone 3 times in the last week…:)
If you had to pick: hummus or baba ghanouj? (I used to be a hummus girl all the way, but I think their baba ganoush has switched that. Mmmm…it’s so good….
(BTW, how on earth do you spell ganoush/bhanouj/ghanoush? I’ve seen like 7 spellings for it. Mooney’s spells it with the “j” so I’m guessing that’s probably right. Or maybe it depends on the region. Who knows.)
