Houston Press' Description

Once known as Birds House, Al Aseel changed its name to better reflect the Palestinian heritage of its owners, but the original namesake birds are still a popular part of the short menu it serves on the Southwest side. You can enjoy Middle Eastern fowl dishes not typically seen in Houston, such as roasted quail, cornish game hens, whole grilled chicken or even stuffed pigeon. But don't miss the creamy, mild baba ghanoush or a bowl of plush fatteh hummus topped with seasoned ground beef that makes a hearty meal itself. After you're done, stick around and get a hookah to enjoy on the quiet patio.
