The first thing that caught our attention was they brought us a little plate of pickles and pickled horseradish (red) which immediately made me think of a Jewish place. Pickled veggies were excellent due to a different array of spices.
For appetizers we ordered Kibdeh (Lamb liver) and Stuffed Grape Leaves. No Kibdeh on sunday, the butcher that brings it fresh everyday is closed on sunday. well shucks. So I had a spinach pie that was pretty good. but I do love Liver and I'll be back for that later.
They listed an Arabic Salad and I bumped my house salad up to this. And it was awesome. Lemon and Olive oil dressing and lots of mint on lettuce cuke, tomatoes and onion dressing nothing super crazy just a nice twist on a regular salad.
For entrees Tiff had Shish Kafta and I had the Kaliyah skillet (sauteed veggies) w/lamb. Mine was excellent especially combined with the rice they brought out.
Anyway, we were favorably impressed it was a small place that had a very authentic taste. I confirmed the presence of a little old lebanese lady cooking in the back.
