Common Q&A's

Have questions about food? We have answers! We have answers about other things too (Where are the paintings from? Who owns the place? What's the difference between "who" and "whom"?), so just ask us!

Do you have any recommendations?
Oh boy, do we ever! If we could pick one thing for breakfast, it would be an omelette with chevre. For lunch or dinner, we'd pick the merguesa plate; the sausage is just a little spicy and not too fatty but quite rich. For a snack we might share the tabbouli appetizer with a friend. For dessert, there's only one option in our hearts: BESBOUSA, the mind-blowing treat made in-house by the manager/chef. And we'd close out any meal with a latte or one of our extra-dry cappuccinos.

What's falafel?
Falafel is a mixture of ground chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans)

What's sumac?
Sumac is a Middle Eastern spice made from a tree that's related to the sumac trees in New England. The main difference is that the sumac trees around here are poisonous, while sumac-the-spice is perfectly edible and has a zesty lemony flavor. (It's also a component in za'atar, a spice mixture you might've tasted elsewhere.)

Is your meat halal?
The lamb kabobs are halal; the chicken and the lamb sausage are not.

For those with gluten allergies, try . . . 
Rice pudding (rice, water, spices)
Lentil soup (pureed lentils, water, spices)
Baba ganoosh

For those with milk allergies . . . 
Ask for soymilk in your latte (or coffee, or cappuccino, or mocha, etc etc)! Only 30 cents extra.
