Brimming with the culinary legacy of Lebanon and the Middle East, the chefs at Aladdin’s Eatery scoop together fresh ingredients and exciting flavors to build a menu of hearty, health-conscious meals. Aladdin's heaps edible treasures onto specialty plates and platters such as the vegetarian mujadara plate, which covers steamed lentils and rice in a cascade of lebanese salata, rich fried onions, and occasional hidden gemstones. The kibbie plate stuffs traditional shells with seasoned ground beef and a vertiginous variety of greens, sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, and parsley, while the beef kafta plate buries appetites under char-grilled beef spiked with sautéed pine nuts, almonds, and a hint of cinnamon. Outdoor seating lets guests ask passersby for help deciding among a choice of more than a dozen kinds of cookies, bars, and baklava for dessert.
Aladdin's Eatery's signature pita pockets—free of fat, cholesterol, oil, sulfites, and preservatives—envelop bites of healthy Lebanese cuisine. The staggering menu bursts with traditional Middle Eastern fare, including more than 70 vegetarian and vegan options as well as tender lamb dishes and marinated, char-grilled shawarma meat. Lightly toasted rolled pita sandwiches, stuffed pita pockets, and pita pitzas swathe fresh vegetables in wholesome flatbread. Freshly squeezed juices and blended smoothies alchemize fruits into frosty sips, washing down Levantine feasts or miniature Sinbads shipwrecked on molars.
