Need to satisfy your inner carnivore? This is the place. Plenty of good choices for vegetarians too.
We opted for the Chef Alisah's Surprise for 2 people ($33 for 2). First, it could easily feed 4 people! We received a huge platter layered with the following: bottom layer wedges of a soft spongy bread (kind of a cross of Ethiopian Injera with a fluffy pancake and an English muffin). It was tasty and absorbed juices from the piles of meats on top of it. A dense flavorful rice was part of the foundation layer as well. (I adored the rice.) Artfully arranged over this were the following: small homemade beef sausages (maybe a dozen of these) which were outstanding -- I normally do not eat red meat and utterly shun any type of sausage. I ate two of these! Two grilled flavorful chicken breasts topped by grilled eggplant slices and grilled tomato. Another wickedly tasty sausage which was chicken with herbs (2 of those). A pile of gyro meat with tzatziki sauce, two large beef kabobs, broccoli with melted mozzarella cheese, more grilled eggplant slices and grilled tomato and a couple of slices of feta cheese.
It was like a treasure hunt for tasty morsels!
Everything is homemade (excepting the cheeses) and is from halal meat. I found it very salty for my taste and heavy on fat (Well, we are talking sausage!) ... but so outrageously tasty.
This is not where to go for an elegant dining experience but the place to go if you really like lovingly prepared food, pleasant attentive service, reasonable pricing and an acceptable environment. We were too stuffed to try a dessert. Must do that next time. I would give it 4.5 stars if possible. I took the star deduction for excessive salt and I feel guilty doing that, because it is very lovingly prepared.
We can't wait to go back and try more of the dishes!
