Seriously, though. I feel you like can put anything on a warm, toasty pita and it will be amazing.
Last night I went with a friend to my favorite Lebanese place in the D.C. area — Aladdin’s Eatery! Not only does this place have amazing food, but it’s also super cheap. And when I say cheap I mean you can get an appetizer, a main course, and a glass of wine for $20 total. Now that’s my kind of place!
[For those of you in the area — I was devastated to find last night that the Ballston location had closed, but thankfully we hightailed it over to Shirlington and that location is alive and well! Go support them so they stay in business because otherwise I will cry!]
We started dinner off with the hummus, which comes with a side of fresh, warm pitas. They have the best hummus ever. Yes, I realize that’s a bold statement. Come find out for yourself.
And then we shared two of their Pita Pitzas (heh) — starting with the Ali Baba Pitza, which comes topped with pureed eggplant, sliced tomatoes, feta cheese, char-grilled slices of eggplant, slivered calamata olives, and a sprinkle of oregano. SO GOOD!!
As well as the Farrouk’s Falaffel Pitza, which is spread with a delicious garlicky tahini yogurt dressing and topped with chunks of falafel, yellow pepper rings, and diced tomatoes, with a garnish of chopped parsley.
Man, I want more just looking at these pictures!
I’m heading outside today for my scheduled training run — yes, you read that right… an OUTSIDE RUN!!!! There’s still snow everywhere, but it’s sunny, so whatever. We’re supposed to get snow later today again (FML) so I need to get out there while I can!
Also, I completely revamped my recipes page! There’s now clearer sections and lots of food porn. Go see and let me know what you think!
Ta-ta for now!
