A favorite among U. of C. professors and students.
For a simple but hearty meal, this Middle Eastern place is a favorite among U. of C. professors and students. Stuffed grape leaves, a refreshing tabbouleh salad, and creamy hummus squeezed with lemon and dotted with garlic are just a few of the offerings. A combination platter lets you taste four intensely seasoned dishes: filet mignon kebabs, chicken shawarma, shish taouk (marinated and charbroiled chicken), and kifta kebabs made of seasoned ground lamb. All dishes come with soup or salad, warm pita, and yellow rice. There are usually several fish specials, like a whole red snapper or salmon kebabs. Great prices, good quality, and ample quantity.
