Just had a meal in this newly opened restaurant, Cedars Cafe, in the Westgate Plaza where a Staples store also is located. It is family-run and their pride in their new venture shows.
We enjoyed several selections, starting with the Cedars Veggie Combo which included the ubiquitous assortment of hummus, baba ganouj, grape leaves, falafel, and a delicious spinach pie. Added to it was something we particularly enjoyed, a vegetarian kibbeh. The menu describes it as being a potato and bulgur wheat shell, stuffed with onions, tomatoes, celery, bell peppers.
For our main course, I had Chicken Shawarma and the better half had Lamb Kabob. Both were gone in a matter of minutes. No room for dessert, but there is baklava, rice pudding and Namoura, which is a semolina cake topped with orange blossom syrup.
A very casual, storefront kind of dining experience, it will be the warm, family welcome and the delicious food that will keep us going back. For the Great Valley Corporate Center lunch crowd, in addition to the main courses they have a selection of sandwiches and salads.
Nice to have a Middle Eastern dining choice in this area.
