New Bern-- Bethlehem Shop and Deli

Panski | Oct 29, 2011 10:20 AM

This isn't much more than a heads up, but I just stopped by the Bethlehem shop while my husband was running at errand near the Big Lots. The place has a nice selection of Middle Eastern food items. I bought a bag of red lentils and a box of maftoul (Middle Eastern couscous). The shelves held more interesting items waiting to be tried. I also purchased a piece of pistachio baklava (99 cents) and a cashew finger (only 79 cents). I was going to save them for later but they didn't make it out of the parking lot. The baklava was the best I have ever had; the cashew finger equally good. Crispy, fresh, not cloyingly sweet. I can't believe I am leaving town to go home (we were just here for Ghost Walk). I would love to go back and try some of the other choices.. I also didn't notice they had Turkish coffee until I was reading the menu in the car or I would have had a cup to go with the sweets. I do love Turkish coffee.

There is a menu for items such as kibbeh, beef gyro, couscous and chicken, etc. that I will look forward to trying the next time we are in town. My vegetarian daughter should be happy they have a Lebanese spinach pie on the menu. If the food is as good as the pastries, it should be a real treat.

The place is in the Big Lots Shopping Center (2686 Dr. MLK, Jr BLVD.
