Location Description:

Abdallah's is well known for its loaves of fresh pita, but there's more to the Gulfton-area bakery than just bread. The daily steam table sees a busy lunch crowd and a leisurely dinner crowd who are there to enjoy authentic Lebanese food and some of the best falafel and tabbouleh anywhere. Many of the Middle Eastern items are also available frozen -- Abdallah's makes all of its food from scratch, then freezes some of it for your convenience -- to take home along with plenty of dry goods and bakery items. One of the restaurant's wonderful shawarmas with one side will barely set you back $6, an even better deal when you consider that it's served all day long. And for those early risers, Abdallah's also offers breakfast. Want some foul with your eggs? You can get it here.
