Owner Ofra Sixto launched her restaurant on Denman Street in late December specializing in Vegetarian Middle Eastern dishes. I visited in early January when they had been opened for under 2 weeks.
I tried a selection of dishes that included The Healing Soup (Lentils, Carrots, Celery, Herbs, Tomato Sauce); Falafel Plate (Falafel on a Hummus Plate, Israeli Salad, Pita); Hummus Fungi (Hummus, Sautéed Mushrooms, Onions, Tahini, Olive Oil); and Malabi Cream (rose water, served with homemade syrup, crushed peanuts, and shredded coconut).
You will find a wonderful menu filled with salads, soups, hummus plates, Shakshuka dishes, and desserts.
The restaurant is open Tuesday – Sunday 11:30 am – 8:30 pm.
Takeout is available for pickup by calling 604-688-2444; along with delivery by Doordash and Uber Eats.
