Aladdin's Eatery Restaurant Review

: With a name all but synonymous with magic, Aladdin's Eatery has a few tricks up its sleeve. First, this casual restaurant welcomes diners with a dessert counter filled with cake slices as big as your head. Second, the service is attentive and informative without being overbearing. Then there's that buttery hummus and notable hot sauce --- both of which border on addictive. The menu is primarily Middle Eastern-leaning, with appetizers like falafel, pita pizzas and diwali, rolled pitas that include a chicken curry version. Vegetarians will delight in the many dishes made without meat or cheese. Meat-eater or otherwise, you'll find the vegetarian soup as tasty as the smoothies and fresh fruit juices. A small but adequate wine list is available as is a menu for children.
