Venue Info

The authenticity and affordability of this cozy Middle Eastern joint makes it an Anderson hot spot. Regulars will adamantly claim that the lentil soup here is the best Chicago has to offer, and rave about other popular offerings like the falafel pita and hummus combo plate. While a meal here won’t burn a hole in your pocket, make sure you hit up an ATM beforehand -- this place is cash-only.
