Love that Lebanese!

Forget every place else. Saturday night we were driving around and a middle eastern craving hit us like a ton of kebabs. Instead of going to one of the standard places in Andersonville - we went to a little storefront across from the Olive Tree on Foster near Clark. Before I even tasted it I knew it was going to be good because I ordered tabouli and the propieter said it would take a few minutes. That's when I saw him bring out the scallions and tomatoes - he was making it fresh, on-the-spot! (I normally don't use exclamation points but wow). The falafel tasted simply of itself - not oily nor of the oil it had been fried in. Rather than using the pocket pita he used large loaves and wrapped it up like a burrito. The tabouli was next to sex and the hummous was delicious. Two sandwiches, humous and the salad for 11 bucks. Run, do not walk, but you'll have to get out of my way first.
