I just wanted more because the amount of Syrian food I had in recent years was small.
It's hard to resist getting a super fresh falafel wrap made from in-situ baked sajipan when visiting Ottawa's farmers market and selling falafel Guys. .. I will beat the pita I bought at the store every time.
The Syrian Shawarma in Gatineau's Hal Sector Shawarma and Chinatown's Laheave Shawarma also have some great saji. In addition, they fine-tune what goes into Shawarma, Syria, compared to the myriad examples of Lebanon that have grown in Ottawa for decades.
Last weekend, when I ordered a large quantity from the Syrian kitchen in Lower Town, the latest survey of Syrian cuisine was done. I knew the business six years ago because I had been buying package dips for a long time at various grocery stores in Ottawa. But I just recently learned of that more substantive item.
Damascus-born Rehabilia Das owns a Syrian kitchen and a Portuguese bakery on Nelson Street that shares its space with the Syrian kitchen. Adas arrived in Ottawa from Syria in 1990, but has hired recently arrived Syrians who have left their hometown of the civil war for the past decade.
I chose to bring back a large order from Syrian Kitchen rather than ordering food through a delivery service or eating on a small patio facing the street.
The dip and rice stuffed grape leaves I was already familiar with did not disappoint with their freshness and consistency. Falafel was like a small chickpea donut. The lentil soup was rich and delicious, but it was too salty. Nothing couldn't be fixed by diluting it a little.
Two rich source items that I think are rare in Ottawa were my favorites.
Kebbeh labanya ($ 22) is a well-made fried minced meat with spices. Grains have been taken to another level thanks to a warm, flavorful yogurt sauce studded with balls, herbs and toasted sliver almonds.
Hummus fatteh ($ 15) for breakfast and brunch elsewhere in Ottawa. Syrian Kitchen Fate layered chickpeas on top of crispy pita, with warm, nutty tahini and all their delicious almonds on top.
I used to eat countless chickens, but the Syrian Kitchen was moist. Chicken Skewers ($ 22) They made themselves stand out with hints of their spicy sweetness.
Also, what is novel to me is a dish called Kababu Karazu ($ 22), in which ground beef skewers are marinated. It was done. For a sour and spicy finish with cherry and berry sauce. The skewers were a little salty and hit us.
Maqluba in Syrian kitchen, seasoned ground beef, eggplant, tomato rice ($ 22) ), It was homely and comfortable.
Considering that the container is full of rice, the price of food is reasonable. was. Tabbouleh and other by-products. I've always had too many orders, and I didn't expect to feed five people one night and four more the next night, but I still have a few lunch leftovers.
I ordered from the Syrian Kitchen online portal, but from another website I found that some other dishes are listed. The success of Syrian Kitchen has stimulated my appetite, so I look forward to trying them out in the future.
