Amba's menu is chock-full of delectable vegetarian and kosher Middle Eastern-style eats made daily from fresh ingredients. Start off with a savory bowl of lentil soup ($6), or put hand shovels to work using a warm pita to scoop up freshly made hummus topped with chickpeas and a drizzle of olive oil ($8). Try out a filling falafel pita sandwich ($8), or opt for the hearty sabich pita sandwich, stuffed to the brim with fried eggplant, Israeli and cabbage salad, a hard-boiled egg, and tahini ($8). A variety of crisp green salads are available in full ($7–$9) or side ($4) sizes, and any three options—such as tabouleh, Israeli couscous, and baba gannouj—may be combined into one Transformers-style megadish ($9). Quench palates with a glass of house-made iced tea or fresh mint lemonade ($3 each), or balance your main mouth events with seasonal sides such as Judean flatbread, Greek spinach rice, and Babka cake.

With roots that stretch back to 1927, the Oakland Flower Market stretches across 10,000 sq. feet, with one-third dedicated to the floral department, and houses three walk-in coolers that store aesthetically pleasing ground-sprouts imported from countries as far reaching as the Netherlands, Thailand, and Australia. The large coolers keep floral varieties such as lilies and tulips (market price) from breaking a sweat. Patrons may also take home a phalaenopsis orchid ($15.99+) or cymbidium orchid plant ($29.99) to add an exotic flair to dull living rooms or drab ovens.
