Mediterranean cuisine is renowned for the way its rich ingredients inspire innovative food-fighting techniques. Skillfully execute the Kebab Eye Jab or the Hummus Humdinger with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of authentic Mediterranean fare at Salma Farah's on North Mesa Street.

Salma Farah's infuses traditional Mediterranean flavors into its homemade sauces and specialties to satiate vacant mouth space with classic gyros, falafel, rolled grape leaves, and more. House-baked saaj bread abets roasted meats in sinfully delicious hunger kidnappings, and the eatery’s BYOB vibe keeps things casual with no corking fee. Dive into the menu's chicken shawarma, a grilled breast of chicken with salad and fresh tahini sauce ($8.95), or bite down on the lamb kebab, nestled amid rice and green-bean companions ($11.95). A calming atmosphere lures hungry tzatziki sauce slurpers inside, where competitions ensue to see who can hold the most tabouleh in-mouth and still recite the Hippocratic Oath in its original Pig Latin.

Reviews

The El Paso Times blog Bite Me featured Salma Farah's. Ninety-three percent of Urbanspooners recommend the restaurant.

  • Overall the food is great--I don't see how you can go wrong, but my favorite aspects are the small yet important details about the place. Practically everything is made from scratch. Their tabouleh is perfectly seasoned--my favorite in the city. – L.D. Birkelbach, Bite Me
  • The place is by far the best Arabic restaurant, & (I would know being half Arab) in El Paso! It's nothing fancy, but it's clean, affordable, & TASTY! – Ness, Urbanspoon

Salma Farah's Mediterranean Restaurant

The chefs at Salma Farah's Mediterranean Restaurant stick to the culinary traditions of the sun-steeped Lebanese and Syrian shores. Kebabs sizzle as they pour tzatziki across gyros and rolled grape leaves. Garlic and eggplant roast aromatically, bound for bowls of hummus or baba ghanouj. Steam rises from earthy, dark Arabic coffee near fatayers—baked pastries consisting of dough rolled around spinach or meat. The BYOB policy lets guests bring in their favorite vintage without having to pay a corkage fee or watch a clumsy waiter try to impress everybody with his unicycling skills when delivering bottles.

Try the traditional dinner plate for a sampling of several tastes. Very good food!

A bit back from the main street so somewhat hard to find, but well worth the effort. Very friendly staff, very friendly atmosphere, and, of course, excellent food. Healthy portions, so be prepared to share or take some home with you. We live some 40 miles away, but whenever passing through El Paso, we look forward to stopping by for some good eats. Highly recommended!
