i was extremely excited to eat here, however, it's not what i thought it was going to be. the food was not that good. the best thing on my plate was the hummus. i ordered the chicken gyro and it was skimpy and not too hot, more luke warm. the side salad was not that good and for the price i paid i thought it would have been alot better. i will not be going back. you should try it for yourself.
I haven't eaten here, but I shop here often. Only place I know of in town to find Greek ingredients, and very affordable prices for imported goods.
Its the money shot, just believe me.
I just got home from dining at this market and am slightly furious and severly dissapointed. The menu has the typical options one would find at a Mediteranean style cafe and the prices seem appropriate...that is until the food arrives.
Me and my partner ordered a large Mediteranean salad($6), one falafel sandwhich($4) and one lamb schwarma($5).
The salad was essentially a plate of romaine lettuce with bottled Italian dressing. Sure there was a little feta, three olives and two tiny slices of both tomato and cucumber, but accessorizing romaine lettuce with so few vegetables does not a Mediteranean salad make! And for six dollars!
The falafel sandwhich was also a joke. There was one regular sized piece of flatbread which was halfway filled with ONE dry ball of falafel which had already been cut up for me in the kitchen.
Accompanying the falafel was browing iceberg lettuce, a few tomato slices and about of a tablespoon of what was supposed to be a tahini sauce, but was really just some hummus.
The lamb shwarma was old and dry, came with browning iceberg, a pickle and maybe a teaspoon of yogurt sauce.
The icing on the cake is yet to come.
After we ate our sixteen dollar dinner I went in and told the couter girl how I felt about the quality of the food, the bottled dressing and my overall disapointment. She went to the "kitchen," which was two feet away, to tell her boss/chef/the owner, what I had said. Instead of coming out to talk to me, he steps back out of my ear and eyeshot while she relays what I said. The girl returns to tell me that the falafel had been made earlier that day. That was his defence?
And he didn't even have the guts to walk the four feet to where I was standing and come face to face with me and apologize and admit that what I had just eaten was not a sixteen dollar dinner, it was not fresh and it was only semi-homeade.
I will never return to this establishment and strongly reccomend against eating there!
It is overpriced fast food.
they have VERY GOOD HUMMUS
I'm sure you remember me. I'm the Palestinian Jew. I wanted to ask you if you have Kasheval and whether you think it's good on toasted bagel?
No offense to Aladdin Cafe (which does a fine job), but the family that runs this place really knows their stuff. Fantastic spinach pies, hummus and dolmas, not to mention a wonderful shawrma. We try to bulk up on their interesting selection of imported foods and groceries (their olive soap from Lebanon lasts for weeks, is cheap and smells great!). Support this place!!!!
Best selection of olives in town. Ishop at this place every time I do a catering job.
The kitchen is always open during business hours.
