“I noticed that no one’s really giving much love to Kolbeh on these boards. I just wanted to give a shout out and say that their food is awesome,” says caserole. Pick of the litter is the rice, which is “like a dream” according to caserole: “I didn’t even know rice could be that enjoyable before eating theirs. Each little grain is cooked to perfection.” The grilled meats and bread are good, and the falafel is also above par, “crispy outside with a really fresh-tasting inside.”

caserole thinks the atmosphere still reeks of the sub shops that used to fill the space, and that the pricing is a bit off: “Basically, it’s a little too expensive to just be the go-to ‘I don’t want to cook tonight’ place. But it isn’t fancy enough to make the cut for a special occasion place.” However, it doesn’t seem to bother the crowds of Middle Eastern families who go there.
