I was in Cedar Rapids for business yesterday and had lunch at Aladdin Restaurant and was very impressed. The waitress brought us complimentary lentil soup that was delicious (and I generally do not like lentil soup.) I had the chicken schwarma combo - the chicken was seasoned extremely well and it came with a very fresh chopped salad.
My colleague who is not an adventurous eater but agreed to Aladdin to humor me, had the chicken gyro which he said was great and cleaned his plate.
Really delicious, homemade tasting food, and a very personable waitress made this a great experience. I am going back next time I go to CR.
