Taqwa's Bakery & Restaurant
Where to Eat in Milwaukee Right Now
The gist: Owner Taqwa Obaid uses her mother's Palestinian recipes for this restaurant, which grew out of a home business selling taboun, a flatbread.
The food: Middle Eastern breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served, with an emphasis on bakery items, which are baked fresh to order. Foul, falafel, hummus, salads, various kabobs, and grilled chicken make up the bulk of the traditional menu.
The cost: Baked goods range $1-$6, breakfast items around $6, and entrees $10-$16.
How to order: Order by calling 414-539-6878. Since it's located in a former fast-food restaurant, the drive-thru is expected to be open soon as well.
