An oasis of Middle Eastern food and various sundries. – The Scene
Arabic script on a small strip-center marquee belies the large selection of the Mediterranean delicacies available at Sahara's Grocery Cafe. Even a quick peek into the small, dusty shop will reveal nothing out of the ordinary. Only the truly observant will notice the constant stream of belly-dancer videos illuminating the television. On closer inspection, one will notice that coolers are filled with a variety of fetas and olives and that the half-dozen aisles are crammed pell-mell with unusual foreign items.
Beyond the shelves and past the piles of newspapers are a few small tables and a service counter. There's no menu, but the kitchen staff will help you choose from the day's options. Regular entrees include beef or chicken shawarma (prepared on a vertical rotisserie, the dish is a cousin of the gyro); heavily paprikaed lamb, chicken or beef kabobs; falafel; and a number of Middle Eastern salads and dips including truly exceptional hummus.
