Aladdin Hillcrest San Diego Restaurant Review

: Aladdin specializes in Lebanese cuisine and Mediterranean dishes. Start with the fava beans simmered in garlic and olive oil, or the spinach pies crafted with house-made dough baked in the stone oven. Then share a plate of feta bathenjan (layers of toasted pita bread with herbed ground lamb, eggplant, roasted nuts and yogurt sauce). Other choices include lamb tikka kebabs, a vegetarian falafel sandwich, wood-fired pizza or one of the shwarma selections.
