Seattle Weekly's Description

If at Mawadda Cafe it sometimes feels as if the process that ends with your desired meal being delivered to your table moves at a glacial pace, it's because everything on the menu, from the chicken shawarma to the lamb kabob, is cooked to order. That detail, along with Mawadda's location in a Hillman City strip mall, make it a less-than-ideal lunch destination for anyone but the city's most dedicated foodies. But the falafel sandwich alone is worth the journey: Coupled with the house tzatziki sauce, the crispy exterior dissolves on the tongue into a fine garlic-tinged mash. Trying to get the mustachioed owner Rami to divulge the secret ingredient is a fool's errand, but he'll smile in acknowledgment every time you make an attempt.

    Gyros, falafel, kabobs and shawarma are staples on this mostly Middle Eastern menu. But there are a few surprising Italian imports as well, including chicken Parmesan and spaghetti and meatballs.

    My favorite place for gyro. Call in advance to place your order.

    The gyros and falafel are amazing. It's a small cafe but their dishes are big and bold, packed with amazing flavors!

    Spends the 50 cents extra for a side of garlic sauce, and put it on everything.
