New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

Middle Eastern food served in authentic style and setting with great politeness and efficiency. This cuisine has simple basics -- chicken, lamb, bulgar wheat, minimal vegetables and fruits -- but oh what a few exotic spices and clean preparation can do. Start with the kibi, crispy shells of cracked wheat stuffed with pine nuts, beef, onions, and spices including cumin, and then deep-fried. Go on to the shawerma ($7.99), the Middle Eastern version of the Greek gyro. There are familiar dishes for the timid, but you'll be pleasantly surprised at the "cleanness" of the preparation and even happier with the desserts -- wondrous, delicate pastries full of surprises. Before you leave, don't miss the Middle Eastern grocery next door, complete with hookahs, abayehs, and a bidet.

    This restaurant closed. Cheeca gave it back to the owners and it will soon reopen as Shrimp Shack.
