Middle Eastern Foods and Pastries

Traditional Middle Eastern cuisine is flavorful and can consist of mixed vegetables, seasoned American lamb meat, fresh grape leaves, and gourmet rice. It is usually enjoyed with a side of imported yogurt (Laban) or a chickpea, sesame seed, and garlic-based food dip (Hummus).


Our made-to-order foods are served as meal combinations and are also available for bulk purchase. All entrées are served with a side of gourmet Arabic rice, fresh Syrian bread, and fattoush, a fresh vegetable salad. Here are descriptions for each menu item:
