A popular spot for excellent Lebanese food. The spartan exterior and downtrodden neighborhood gives no warning of the classy look and amazing food inside. The meal starts off with a basket of pita, which was good, but not warmed and there's nothing to dip it in by default. The hummus is excellent, but if there are only two people, $6+ is too large a serving. The laban (homemade yogurt) was tart and tasty. For entrees, the roast shank of lamb was amazing. Probably the best lamb I've ever had - flavorful, not too gamey, and melt-in-your-mouth tender. For dessert, the rice pudding was nice, but it was flavored with lavender, which kept making me think of cleaning products. But overall, an excellent meal. Great prices, too. Can't wait to go back!
