Hubby and I stopped into Tooba’s last night for their first day open and I am delighted to report that Melrose has another great selection in dining options. Truly, just what Melrose has needed, in a city awash with Pizza joints, Roast Beef & Seafood carry out or upscale sit-down restaurants, Tooba’s Middle Eastern/Mediterranean inspired wraps and sandwiches are a welcome addition!
It’s a stylish shop with counter service and plenty of places for comfortable seating. Of course, you can take your food to go, if you would rather.
We both started with the House made soup, which last night was an incredible Tortellini Soup. It was brimming with tender cheese filled tortellini in a delicious tomato based broth. For our main course, we each chose the Falafel sandwich. Freshly made falafel are deep fried and stuffed into a tomato wrap, which is then chocked full of fresh vegetables, and hummus, then quickly pressed in the Panini machine.
Simply couldn’t have been better.
I can’t wait to go back and try some of the other offerings, like Chicken Kubideh, a ground chicken kabob, or the Kabob Barg, their beef tenderloin kabob.
Tooba’s will be open daily from 6AM-9PM, serving Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
