Al Zaytouna captures the diverse flavors of the Mediterranean, bringing a broad sampling of the region's cuisine to Philadelphia. Silken hummus, tender lamb chops, and Tunisian-style couscous represent a handful of the menu's options, which include meaty entrees as well as vegetarian-friendly dishes. Although cheesesteaks manage to make the menu (this is Philly, after all), the majority of the sandwiches feature classic fillings such as chicken shawarma, crispy falafel, or charcoal-grilled eggplant, zucchini, and peppers.
With its earth-toned walls and rustic tiled flooring, the restaurant's casual dining room exudes the same sort of Mediterranean spirit as the menu. Small tables line each side of the long, narrow space, giving diners plenty of seats from which to enjoy their meals and admire the hanging plants, which generously replenish the restaurant's oxygen supply every morning.
