Middle Eastern Eats on Harlem Avenue
There's not much that we haven't covered over here. Seven years in S'C'&C is basically the largest guide of where to eat in Chicagoland known to man. Ok maybe not but we've documented 1000's of stops. However one area of the cityscape where my expertise isn't up to par with others would have to be the Bridgeview area. It's there where you'll find one of the largest collection of Middle Eastern restaurants in the Midwest. Quite a few have explored the area but I have the feeing that a few hidden gems have yet to be uncovered. Not today though, today's stop is a classic.

For a while now Fattoush has been a favorite of many from around this way and even a few folks who post over at LTHforum. It can get packed on the weekends with family's celebrating something special or just having another night out. Luckily theres plenty of seating in the two room facility. Fattoush grills all of their skewers over live charcoal and has one of the best lunch deals around. For just $10 you'll get a skewer each of beef and chicken, two balls of falafel, grilled tomatoes and onion all on top of a large order of fluffy rice. Not done yet, they also throw you some hummus and a Jerusalem salad as well as a bowl of soup. This massive special makes for two meals. One of my favorites in an area that I promise to further explore as the weather warms up. See ya next time.
