Ba'al has very good Middle Eastern food at reasonable prices. Most of the menu is vegetarian. The fattoush, fennel and taboulle salads are fresh and tasty as are the soups. One of their specialties are the baked breads. Especially the zaatar bread and one with cheese is very good. They also have a very fast delivery service.
