I first heard of the Israeli-themed restaurant through my blogger friends where they enjoyed Mediterranean tapas-style dishes at dinner, so I was intrigued. With a friend who lived in the area, it was a no brainer for me to visit. I heard how busy it gets during the dinner service and luckily it was not the case when we visited at lunch on a weekday.

After I got over the confusing menu with unnecessary arrows pointing in different directions, I was able to narrow down my choice of Labneh ($9) which is Labanese cream cheese served with pita and a pastrami shawarma pita sandwich ($15) for my main. My friend ordered the roasted cauliflower pita sandwich ($12).

When it arrived, I was in shock with the generous portion size. This was definitely not a place to go on your first date. I did not go the fork and knife route and tightly gripped the sides instead and inevitably made a mess. My face was full of sauce!

The sandwich had thick strips of flavourful meat accompanied by apricot jam for some sweetness, pickled vegetables and a whole lot of sauce. To top it all off, there was even fries in the pita. This sandwich had it all! I finished off my meal with a refreshing drink mixed with orange, grapefruit and pomegranate juice.

I have been thinking about my sandwich ev-e-ry single day since our visit and couldn’t wait to write this post to share the love. There is no doubt that I’ll be back for lunch.
