Amazing Middle Eastern Food - Very Cheap!

Okay - this is another place that the locals in New York Go. More tourists shopping in SOHO should go here rather than the traps on Broadway! I really loved it here. Got lunch for $7 and while I ate--in watched as locals stopped in for lunch and got their food to-go. Really quality... read more

Dropped in while walking around Soho for a great lunch. This place is pretty cramped, but sometimes the best places are a "hole in the wall". Friendly staff and delicious food.

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.

The cafe serves fresh and tasty middle eastern food. I often go there as I work close by, and I have always enjoyed what I got. Often several people from work go there too, and given the different tastes we order a wide selection off the menu. My standard lunch is Lentel Soup, Shepherd Salad, and a side order of... More

I came across Ba'al Cafe in Soho while sightseeing. The cafe had so many dishes that I wanted to try but I settled on Taboulle, Fattoush salad, Chicken Shawarma, and Za'Atar flatbread. My gosh, all the dishes were awesome and all at a great price. My favorite was the Fattoush salad and Za'Atar flatbread. I have never had these dishes... More

My wife -- a native Egyptian -- and I sampled a variety of items from Ba'al's menu. All were excellent. This place does a booming takeout business, but there is also a window counter for eating inside. Be sure to get the freshly made flat bread. It's yummy.

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
