The food selection was completely different but every ounce as delicious, and the restaurant was amazing. It had a fabulous mediterranean feel to it. White walls, bright blue tiles, different rooms and levels...I loved it! Definitely the sort of place that would be great to book for a group. Speaking of which...they do take reservations and I'd recommend making one.
So, in summary, Nuba is officially batting 100% in the scrumptious stats.
Najib's Special: crispy cauliflower tossed with lemon and sea salt, served with tahini. ($7.50) Who can resist this yummy goodness? I can whole heartedly vouch that this dish is a must order.
Mjadra: organic green lentils and rice with onions and jalapeño, served with avocado and caramelized onions. ($7.50) These lentil were really nice. They had a good kick to them, but only enough spice to add flavour. They were lovely...and so was the tahini sauce drizzled all over top.
Stuffed Eggplant: roasted eggplant stuffed with chickpeas, red pepper, zucchini, red onion, and tomato. Served with labneh yogurt sauce and zaatar. ($17) AMAZING!! This dish blew my mind. If you're a fellow eggplant lover, this is a must. Note: if you're vegan, make sure to order the yogurt sauce on the side.
The three dishes above were just about right for two people.
