while we chatted about the excitement of the coming months, we ordered drinks and an appetizer platter to share. our piping hot pita arrived, along side the tapas-style falafel platter. it was some time before our waitress (who seemed quite disinterested in taking our orders) re-appeared, offering few suggestions or input on our order. when our food arrived, it was tasty, but nothing spectacular.

|cheers to all that is to come!|
|piping hot pita|
|sharing plate: baba ghanouj, hummus, middle eastern salad and falafal balls|
everything here was very tasty
|jw, rk and i all ordered the shish-tawoo: |
two skewers of marinated chicken breast, with salad and rice
|cs enjoyed the lamb shishkabob, with salad and rice|
meal sizes were beyond plentiful, especially for the price. we all had leftovers.
while we enjoyed our dinner, the restaurant lacks ambiance and authenticity, though is regularly overflowing by the forest hill crowd. i will likely resume my regular israeli food spots like mashu mashu and shoom shoom.
