Fodor's Review

This little house converted into a restaurant serves some of the best authentic Lebanese fare in San Diego County. The key is the sajj, a superheated oven that's used to cook the herbed flatbread of the same name. The warm sajj bread might be wrapped around garlicky marinated chicken, hummus, and vegetables, or made into the Manakeesh Ultimate, a combination of yogurt cheese, herbs, tomatoes, olives, and fresh mint. Try the hearty seasoned ground beef "kafta"

plate that includes house-made hummus, basmati rice, green salad, and pita bread. For dessert, don't resist the buttery baklava filled with cashews or pistachio nuts.
