Amir Foods

Amir Foods wasn't the first restaurant we went to, but it may be the one we've been to the most in the 2 months we've been here. I went on a Tuesday to pick up some takeout, and within a week had been there 5 of 7 days. It was embarrassing how quickly I became a regular, greeted warmly by the people who work there.

Here's their menu. I had some very favorite lentil soup back in California, and I was hoping this lentil would be the same. It wasn't, but I tried the Chicken Soup and LOVED it! Our favorite things so far have been the Shawarma Platter and the Shish Tawook wrap, both of which feature pickled turnips, which sound questionable, but are fantastic!

Ok, our actual FAVORITE things are the Meat Pies and the Spinach and Feta Pies, in that order. Also, the Spinach Pies are right on, very lemony. Mmmm. (Heat them up in the oven, not the microwave!)

The people are really nice. You can eat in, take out, and shop in their little market that has at least 4 grinds of bulghur, if not more.
