Aleph Eatery is a Middle Eastern restaurant that recently just opened in Vancouver at 1889 Powell Street. The space although tight is bright, airy and cozy – decor cross sectioned between Kinfolk and Cereal Magazine. Pastel pallets faded and banquette seating frames the restaurant with floating tables […]

Some time ago we were visiting Toronto for a friend’s wedding. Like any other trip, it becomes culinary at some stage. We arrived at Fat Pasha. This was Anthony’s Rose latest collaboration with Robert Wilder. It is located at 414 Dupont Street (between Spadina Road and […]
Omnivore Comptoir Grill is a Middle Eastern fresh salad and grilled meat restaurant on Boul St-Laurent Montreal. Traveling for work or pleasure is always hard on your body. You are thrown off from your fitness routine. This gluttony vacation was no exception. While we love trying new restaurants like Toque, Park and L’Express; sometimes I just really miss a healthy meal full of greens.
Omnivore offers vegan, vegetarian and meat options fit for a flexi-Tarian like me. They have a great selection of salads, beef or chicken skewers and also fresh sandwiches.
This is a very busy lunch spot constantly with people coming in and out. Seat yourself and order at the counter. Space is super tight and tables are meant to be shared.
Fish sandwich 6.50: Fish, green pesto garlic sauce, fennel, tahini cabbage. Nice subtle flavors for a lighter Kaftas Sandwich.
Carnivore Platter: three skewers of beef or chicken, hummus, labneh…. The hummus is more acidic when compared to Nuba Labenese Restaurant in Vancouver. Tasty nonetheless. Meat is flavorful, well seasoned and nicely charred.
No doubt this place is one of our favorites and you should definitely add it to your list of places to eat in Montreal.
Omnivore is a brisk walk from the Metro. Approximately 30 min walk to Sherbroke and Saint Catherine’s. Or if you are tired from walking? Uber your way back to the hotel or your next destination.

This is my special corner. I love the light in this sun room. Tamam Fine Palestinian Vancouver on 2616 E Hastings Street. There are not many high quality Middle Eastern restaurants in Vancouver. And although I hold Nuba dear to my heart – you simply […]
Nuba Vancouver Kitsilano is like a vacation away from home. As you pull the doors open you are transported to a balmy locale – Morocco? The restaurant is divided into different dining areas: bar area, first floor common dining area, second floor booth seats and a table to gaze down to the sunlit private party courtyard-room area. If and when they fix the second floor open roof area in the back, you’ll be able to enjoy some roof-top sun rays also.
Each Nuba Vancouver location has a menu with slight variations, but their culinary flare around re-interpretations of traditional and modern Lebanese dishes. Since my last visits and during our Christmas party, I was excited to order something different from their Sharing Menu.
Najib’s Special 7.50: Crispy cauliflower tossed with lemon and sea salt is one of my favorites! I love it so much that I sometimes replicate it at home. Served with tahini. [VE+GF]
Hummus 6.50: Rich flavorful puree of organic chickpeas blended with garlic, lemon and tahini [VE+GF]
Lamb Hushwie 9: Sautéed minced lamb with onions, pine nuts and spices. The lamb is flavorful but not too strong. It is perfect for layering ontop of pita bread over hummus, avocado and pickled cabbage. [GF]
Beef Bavette 20: We needed some tender meat to balance out our meal. Local grass-fed beef were deeply marinated and paired with a feta cream potato terrine and beetroot riata.

Xai Verandah Lounge in LA, California. This beautiful place blends old world timeless Mediterranean elegance with contemporary chic.
