Burka in West Portal

Have passed by this new Middle Eastern restaurant in West Portal several times and been curious We finally went in tonight. Food was excellent:

Great baba ghanouj and hummus appetizers for $3.99 each.

No pita bread, but a tasty warm house-baked flat bread cooked like focaccia.

For main courses we had Shrimp Kebabs (generous portions interspersed with grilled lemons) and Meatball Kotke (sp?), which were fabulous grilled patties of spiced ground lamb and beef. Main courses came with a wonderful rice side, a small salad and some yoghurt. Prices range from $11.99 to about 14.99.

Only downside - they don't have their liquor license yet, but they encourage you to BYOB.

Give it a try.
