Thanks to my Lebanese friend, I have tried excellent Middle Eastern food in LA. Last week I was in NY and trekked to a restaurant (hole-in-the-wall) that I had read about and it was delicious. It made me lament the fact that simple Middle Eastern food is something I miss in SF. Someone mentioned Ali Baba's Cave in an earlier thread - any luck with that place? I remember there was one on Haight - is it still there?
Last night I remembered Waterfront Pizza in Foster City. My friend took me there about 5 years ago, but I have not returned. It was owned by Jordanians who made kabobs, hummus, freshly made pita (yes - fresh, warm pita!) on a daily basis. Is Waterfront Pizza still there and is it still owned by the same Jordanian family? I recall it was near a Safeway and it was literally on the waterfront.
