Want Tasty Vegetarian Variety? Try Arabiata!


I don’t know about you, dear readers, but one of my favorite things to do growing up was eat out.  Since we’ve become vegan, we avoid eating out for various reasons, but when we find an establishment that has a variety of vegan dishes or is willing to tailor menu items to fit our needs, we become loyal customers.  That’s why we want to tell you all about Arabiata.

Arabiata is a local Egyptian chain of restaurants that serves up traditional Egyptian favorites.  Historically, they became famous for their fava beans (slow-cooked or medames and fried in the form of tameyia [or felafel].  Gradually they added a slew of other dishes, including a lot of vegetarian options.  VERY reasonably priced, you can get your fill for just a few Egyptian pounds!  Here are a few shots of the vegetarian items on the menu (*not all of the items are vegan).

And now – for the best part, here’s what we ordered:

 

Arabiata Salad Bar with Egyptian pickles (Mary's favorite!)

Foul Iskandarani (Fava Beans, Alexandrian style - with tahina and parsley - and other fixin's)

Alexandrian Style Tamaya (Felafel - with hot chilis)

Regular, small tameya (felafel) - I can not resist these!

I told you I can't resist them!

Foul (fava beans) with tomato sauce and garlic!!!

 

You can order delivery from Arabiata by calling: 16919, as you see below, or….
