excellent Middle Eastern, with many vegan dishes

Posted on 08 / 11 / 2014

Contrary to its name, its dining room is much larger than a tiny spot. Traditional American-Middle Eastern food, with all the expected vegan dishes such as hummus, baba ganouch, stuffed grape leaves, and falafel. The baba ganouch and stuffed grape leaves (albeit with white rice) are especially good, indeed as good as such simple fare can be. Indeed the baba ganouch is the best I ever have eaten, anywhere. In fact I rate this restaurant as the best Mid Eastern fare, anywhere. Another excellent dish that is surprisingly vegan is the collards greens, though heavy on the garlic. Other very worthy very vegan dishes are the mousakaa (which you might know by the French name ratatouille) and the potatoes. Note that the prices are moderate and therefore quite uncharacteristic of Mystic. Also uncharacteristic of Mystic, it offers ample parking. The always adorable waitresses boast some vegetarians among them. While the menu clearly identifies the vegetarian dishes, you must query about what is vegan, which is easy as the owners and wait staff speak "fluent vegan" here.

Pros: the food!, moderate prices, its location

The menu here has clearly marked vegetarian options and plenty to choose from. The food was good, not great. Lentil soup was watery but hummus was yummy. Extra charge to add simple veggies to our wrap, and they neglected to even add all they charged for!

Pros: decent food
Cons: overpriced

This is my second visit - my husband and I travel through Mystic from Cape Cod to NJ/NY/CT regularly. Thanks to the Happy Cow, we no longer take a bag lunch/dinner for the drive. We've had lunch and dinner. You will NOT be disappointed! Great vegan options - lots of gluten free and vegetarian too. Try the veggie kabob, falafel pita, hummus, collard greens, and spinach pies.

Pros: great food, great service
Cons: can't think of any!
