I've been trying to get to Aleppo's Kitchen for a few months & tonight it finally worked out. Although it's in a rather odd location, behind the building, once you get there it's really lovely with nice cultural decor & a beautiful mural. They have a beautiful & spacious patio area that looks to be quite versatile. When you sit down they serve a generous platter of olives & pickled turnips (called lifit) & a variation of the ground walnut & red pepper dip along with pita chips. I really liked the dip!
As for our menu selections-- we both began with lentil soup which was very good, although it would have been better had it been hotter.
Our other items included a "starter" of kibbeh neyiyeh (raw) & although it had great seasoning our server could not provide raw onions which are normally eaten with it.
I ordered something not on the menu & then learned there are at least 6 items not on the menu. I ordered Kibbeh Lebineyeh which came with 5 good sized & well stuffed kibbeh balls along with a large serving of rice, nicely garnished with toasted almonds. It was delicious & since more than half came home with me I look forward to enjoying it again!
My only real complaint was that it was freezing cold in there -- our the heat on, even here in Southern CA we get cold!!
