I have been having some serious cravings for Middle Eastern food lately. Perusing the boards I noticed that there have not been updates to some of these threads for a few years. Yet I know there have been lots of changes lately (openings, closings, relocations, an influx of hookah bars). Was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on the current scene.
I would also love to hear anything about some of the older places. I have been living in the area for about 7 years now, but we don't eat out a lot and have some catching up to do (too many choices!!). Are these places still around? Tasty?
I am looking for sit down restaurants, take out, markets with prepared food. Anything that is tasty. I am willing to drive!
My current top location is North Side Pockets on Mineral Spring. (Though East Side Pockets is my go to for falafel near Brown). A more sit down sort of place might be nice...
Also, I have no interest in hookahs (or overly 'college-y crowds'), but will tolerate a hookah bar if the food is worth it.
