New Kosher Option in NC

The following is from an e-mail from an acquaintance. I believe the restaurant in under the supervision of Chabad in Wilmington. I am not warranting anything, just passing along some info....

Yesterday, our family took a trip to the closest Kosher restaurant to Raleigh – in Wilmington, North Carolina. We were extremely impressed. Owner/Chef Shai Shalit has actually operated his Moroccan Café for three years. When Chabad of Wilmington moved to the area around six months ago, he decided to switch over to a Kosher restaurant so now a kosher restaurant is less than two hours away and can be combined with a nice day at the beach. Everything is freshly made and delicious. We started with homemade pitas and the hummous and matbucha appetizers. Matbucha is a delicious dip that contains roasted tomatoes, jalapenos, garlic, chili and bell peppers. It is spicy and very tasty. By the time the sandwiches came, we were stuffed, but I still managed to wolf down a wonderful lamb kabob in a pita with a side of couscous. My wife was equally impressed with her chicken sandwich. We were served by Shai himself and he was extremely friendly and accommodating. They also have hot dogs, hamburgers or chicken nuggets for the kids. Finally, the restaurant had a nice ambience, something you don't always get in kosher restaurants. The artwork and décor fit the cuisine. So next time you are planning a trip to the beach, stop by Shai's place. For more information, check out their website at
