This family-run grocery/bakery is a Miami establishment that has been around since 1954. From the minute you walk in, you find aisles overflowing with Middle Eastern ingredients, supplies, and household items. Toward the back of the store is a cafeteria with a selection of hot items, platters, and side dishes made fresh daily by a family member. The seating area is small and in the middle of the store, but the friendly service makes up for the awkwardness. The freshly made hummus, lebna, and baba ghannouj are all served with thick pitas and sold individually ($3.99) or on a platter ($6.99). Traditional dishes such as shawarma ($5.99), shish kebab ($5.99), and rack of lamb ($9.99) are ample portions served with two sides and fresh pita. For a real treat, try the daily specials, which range from makloubah ($5.99) to lamb shanks ($6.99), depending on the day. Desserts are traditional pastries. Most customers grab some baklava or ma'amoul on the way out.
