Mezzah dishes out a delicious tapas menu populated by shareable servings of Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and Greek cuisine. Pop the contents of a plate of garlic-and-chili-pepper-infused olives (a $5 value) into your open pucker for an aromatic appetizer with hints of sun-dried tomato before saturating already-marinated greek meatballs (a $6 value) in a dish of creamy greek yogurt sauce to cool down your palate. The Turkish-style meat-and-hummus plate (a $7 value) tops the creamy chickpea spread with a succulent crown of marinated ground beef, and vegetarians can delight in the Mezzah antipasto (an $8 value), a dish featuring assorted grilled veggies, feta, olives, and a noticeable absence of pasto. Because whistles cannot be wetted on tahini alone, diners and their dates can sweetly sip two glasses of house wine alongside their meal (up to a $6 value each) or apply the value toward a more expensive libation.

In 2005, you were never sure where Alana's Hawaiian Shave Ice trailer might pop up?shoppers spied it at local farmers markets, carousers ran into it at music festivals, and stargazers swore they'd caught a glimpse of it streaking across the night sky. In 2010 and 2011, they even made a steady appearance on Newport Avenue in Ocean Beach.
Today, the family dispenses its delicious desserts from not only their ice trailer but also a more permanent location: a cheerful stand named for their daughter, Alana. These newfound roots haven't affected the product, though; behind the counter, servers whip up the same frosty shave ices that made the family's original trailer so successful. They top the fluffy ice in tropical flavors such as guava, pineapple, and passion fruit, or blend multiple syrups to craft specialty combinations like Hawaiian Rainbow, Island Breeze, and Big Kahuna. These shave ices are served both plain and Hawaiian-style, which calls for ice cream on the bottom and sweet cream on top.
