Wahib's in Alhambra-- a little bummed on the stuffed cabbage

I was trying to find Senor Fish in Alhambra, and I ended up at Wahib's Lebanese Kitchen instead. I have been meaning to try this place for a long time.

I'm still eating my vegetarian combo plate, as a type this. Overall, I'm a bit bummed. The pickled turnips, the olives and the stuffed grape leaves are too salty. This is coming from a person that adds salt to nearly everything I eat.

I took my first bite of the stuffed cabbage and could not continue eating it. The filling tasted bad. I love stuffed cabbage. It is a Persian dish that I eat frequently at home. I was so excited to see that they gave both grape leaf dolmehs and the stuffed cabbage variety. Stuffed cabbage is something that I barely see in restaurants.

The hummus also tasted canned. I may be wrong, but it really tasted like it was pre-made.

There is one thing that I will give this place a thumbs up for. The lentil soup was very good. It tasted very fresh and the flavors were right on. It reminded me of a soup that my dad makes. So, thumbs up on the lentil soup, but thumbs sideways to down on the rest. Too bad. :(

The price was reasonable, at least-- about $11 for the whole meal, which also came with a generous amount of pita bread.

I expected this place to be a lot better.
