“…and what do you call that?” I asked while mentally preparing to remember some strange-sounding name. ‘Oh, that’s uhm…. tomato with cheese on top’ was his polite reply. -__-
Food + Egyptian + Lebanese were the words that caught my attention. The Lunch buffet sign on the window however was the deciding factor – my weight woes were forgotten for that moment it seems – gained 2 lbs since I’ve been on break :O
Location: Marietta Square, GA
Fun Fact: Home to Lizards and Lollipopz (quirky name for a toy store but a quite clever creation of an 8 year old), Doodlebugz (very random odds n ends store), Shop Til’ You Drop (I REFUSED to go in there so I can’t say anything about it), Go Fish, Just Kiln’ Time (decorate your purchase), Vintage-ology, Hollie Guacamole, Miss Mamie’s Cupcakes & Such, Hair Art and some other normal-sounding named stores.
Quite family oriented but a really nice reminder.
Very homey feeling ….now wondering what’s going on with the seemingly random letter placement on the tree.
A friendly waiter led me through this ‘tunnel’ (which gave a glimpse into the kitchen where a rather shy looking female chef was busy preparing some meat kind) and into the dimly lit buffet area.
It was a quiet day but a few customers came in, had their fill and left looking satisfied.
The hot pita bread was delicious and when I bit into the one at the bottom I realized it was a pocket that I eventually stuffed some hummus in. YUM!
Round 1 was the falafel, some kind of rice – he told me and at the time I was positive I’d have remembered .. hence I didn’t write it down. A chicken dish, hummus and a tangy vegetable compilation.
The falafel was my favourite so had another. I tried stuffed eggplant and Kefta (meatballs) in a tomato base … tasted like lasagna without the pasta though the potatoes could have been the apt alternate. I also tried a vegetarian bean disk of red beans and chick peas …was also good when I put it in the pita bread.
By this I was stuffed so I whipped out my art book and did a quick sketch of a photo in my phone. Was also my first time drawing solely with pen. Thinking of doing a bit more to it though sooooo may update:
I then managed to work up just enough f an appetite for dessert! Baklava, a turkish pastry, a VERY sweet corn bread and fresh fruit.
Finally it was time to saw good-bye to my two new Egyptian friends. 🙂
Great shots, very well captured… 🙂
– and an great appetizer, I’m hungry too… 😉
heheheh aweee hope you have lots of food around you! could do with some more of that now as well! Woi!
The texture and colour on the wall in the third photo are quite amazing! And, I think I am now hungry…
hahaha would you try it if I attempted to make those dishes 😀
wow..wish there were Egyptian restaurants here..think i’ll try Greek over the holiday 🙂
Greek is cool too! think I’ve had that. Lemme know if you enjoy it 😀
Great photos as always. You know there are Lebanese restaurants in Kingston too! I am very fond of baklava, yum! It’s all very healthy food too…
