Very Authentic and Very Good

Posted on 05 / 09 / 2012

Having been to several countries in the Middle East (including Lebanon), I will say that this is probably the restaurant in San Diego that serves food that's the most like what you'd get in the heart of the Middle East (the Levant). It's really good food, and quite reasonably priced. Also, everything is well-labeled on the menu based on whether vegan or vegetarian status. Definite recommend!

Pros: excellent food, very authentic, reasonable prices
Cons: a bit small (not a big con)

We actually found this place because of Google offers. This is a cute place, it's a small place with about 5 tables. We had the Zaatar extra, which has olives, tomatoes, and fresh mint. This was pretty tasty. It was just a tad sweet, I'm not sure if it was the spices.We then had the vegetarian which had onions, spices, olives, and oil. This was our favorite. So flavorful. We split both of those, so you each have 4 pieces. We each had the wrap with hummus. This wrap has hummus, falafel, lettuce, fava and garbanzo beans, tomato, tahini, parsley, and pickles wrapped in a pita wrap. This was so flavorful and so good! After each bite we both would mention how tasty this wrap was.

Pros: excellent food, great value, nice portions
Cons: Small place
