The standard pizza at Sahaara is kafta mankoushe pizza, which is ground beef with chopped parsley, onions, and Lebanese spices, on a thin crust. You get slices of lemon on the side; just squeeze some over the top to complement the spicing on the beef, says AntarcticWidow.

The mezzas are good, too. Moussaka is a mixture of eggplant, garbanzo beans, tomatoes, onions, garlic, and crushed mint. “Every bite was full of flavor. I had to restrain myself from licking the plate,” says AntarcticWidow. Foul moudamas (fava beans simmered with lemon juice and garlic) is very creamy, and well balanced.

Rice pudding is “quite good, creamy with a hint of rose or orange water, and not too sweet,” and overall the portions are generous.
