Marouch Restaurant Review

: This strip mall restaurant offers Lebanese and Armenian dishes. Pita bread is baked in a wood-burning oven. It would be easy to make a meal of all the hot and cold appetizers. The best meze are hummus, falafel and bastourma, thin-cut spiced dried veal filet. There are even pan-fried frogs’ legs seasoned with lemon juice, garlic and cilantro. For your entrée, consider a combination of spit-cooked chicken, beef and lamb shwarma, or a kebab combination utilizing the same animals. If you order two hours ahead, you’re entitled to the barbecued whole chicken served with creamy garlic sauce. There are also interesting daily specials. On Tuesday, it’s sheykh al-mehshi, eggplant filled with seasoned ground beef and pine nuts. On Thursday, look for bamieh, okra cooked with beef chunks in tomato sauce. Or try the weekend-only lamb shanks served with a mixture of rice, ground lamb, pine nuts, almonds and pistachios. For dessert, cool rice pudding comes topped with pistachios and rose water. Knafeh, served hot, is a sweet white cheese topped with semolina mixed with honey and rose water.
