Middle Eastern Restaurant
$$
“Delicious, nutritious, healthy Mediterranean food, a 15 minute walk from the unit. The restaurant is especially vegetarian friendly, given the Lebanese menu and if you order from the mezze, it may be pricey, but you will have a doggy bag for days! Great for those who sometimes crave a shawarma or a falafel.”
