Food

We are very particular about how we make the food and what goes in it, preparing our dishes by hand from simple wholesome ingredients. We bake fresh pitas every day and soak garbanzo beans for our hummus and falafel. When you visit us you get homemade food.



Pitas:

We bake pitas every morning. It is a simple bread with a few basic ingredients. The critical and most dramatic part of making a pita is the baking. After it has been mixed, shaped, and proofed, the pita enters the oven. The oven is extremely hot--approximately 800 degrees F. At this temperature the pita needs to bake for less than a minute. In the first twenty seconds in the oven the shell of the pita is seared and sealed. During the next twenty seconds the moisture in the dough turns to steam and inflates the previously sealed shell. In the final stage, the new surface that has opened inside the pita finishes baking and the pita exits the oven.

Ingredients:  unbleached flour, salt, yeast, sugar, gluten.


Falafel:

The heart of it all!

As it has been done for years, we combine garbanzo beans and spices into crunchy golden spheres of goodness. They are naturally gluten free and fried in 100% canola oil.


Ingredients: chick peas, onions, garlic, parsley, spices.


Hummus:

The classic garbanzo bean spread. We soak and cook the beans and blend them with tahini, lemon and spices. Our simple, natural hummus is a great source of protein and fiber. Put it in a sandwich, use it as a dip or eat it with a spoon.

Ingredients: chick peas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt, spices

Tahini:

This delicious sauce is as simple as it gets. Ground sesame seeds, lemon, garlic and salt. Its high in protein, vitamins, minerals and flavor!

Harif:

Our spicy sauce is a blend of fresh jalapenos, parsley and garlic with spices. The spice level varies between 4-6 depending on the character of the jalapenos.

Shakshouka:

An egg poached in savory tomato sauce. This Israeli staple originated in the Jewish communities of Morocco and Tunisia and can now be found in may variations all over the world. We serve it for eating in only--it can’t be ordered for take out.
