for my birthday dinner i wanted to try somewhere different, something unique, something fun…
it’s located on a small alley and you have to ring the doorbell to get in. i made a reservation, and when we got there everything was set up. we basically had a private room. it’s byob (amazing) and they opened up our bottles almost instantly. they make you wash your hands before eating, which makes sense since they are what you’re using throughout the meal.
the first course (out of SEVEN) was a trio of salads: tomato & cucumbers, carrot, and cooked eggplant.
next up was this layered pie that was covered in phyllo dough topped with sugar & cinnamon. it was stuffed with chicken, eggs, onions, & almonds. it was nothing short of amazing.
for the third course we had two options (which i now can’t remember) but we opted for the chicken, lemon, & olives. it was legit falling off the bone, it was great.
the fourth course of kabobs came with an option of beef or lamb. we went with beef. and, yet again, amazing.
fifth course was couscous with chicken & potatoes. it was light and a perfect way to wrap up the dinner portion.
the sixth & seventh courses were fruit, hot tea, & baklava.
guys, i’m not even joking, it was all so good. i thought i was going to be disgustingly full but i was actually not. (not that i could eat anymore, but it was satisfying).
if you couldn’t tell from the photos each dish is served family style (sans plates & utensils [except for the spoons for the couscous]). they do keep the flat bread coming which is great for picking up the salads and also good to keep as a “plate.” in addition, they give you a huge towel for you lap which served as your “napkin.”
i should also probably mention that it’s a prix fixe menu and it’s $25 per person (with tax & tip i think it’s more like $32). which, for the amount of food you’re getting, i think is a great deal. it’s great for big groups and with set price it makes splitting the bill so much easier (it’s cash only). i will definitely be back!
