“Excellent Authentic Mediterranean Food!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

The place is in front of Plaza del Norte- Hatillo in Galería del Norte near Yogen Fruz. The food is so delicious and fresh. I ordered the "Macluba of Cordero" (a original palestine-arab dish that includes rice with a variety of vegetables, such as fried tomatoes, potatoes, cauliflower, eggplant, salad and roasted lamb). The lamb was so juicy and with excellent taste. Also the Owner (native form Palestine) gave us to try the "Falafe" ( is a deep-fried ball or patty made from ground chickpeas, fava beans, or both. Falafel is a traditional Arab food) and the flavor was so fresh-exquisite. For dessert we ordered the "Vaklava" (is a rich, sweet pastry made of layers of phyllo pastry filled with chopped nuts and sweetened with syrup or honey) and was really GOOD!!! The owner is very attentive. The place is a small restaurant, but is a great place to eat Authentic Mediterranean Food.
