My husband and I ate at Ya Hala yesterday for the second time. The food has been delicious both times. I had the Kefta Meshwi and he had beef shawarma. The owner and the staff are extremely nice and courteous. The owner explained how they use only very lean meat and fresh ingredients. We have traveled in the mid east and frequently eat at different mid eastern restaurants. We found this one to be special. We both loved the Baba ghanoush.
It is tucked behind My Eye Doctor on Maple Avenue so one has to be careful to see it. It is certainly worth a visit.
