Welcome to another installment of “Adventures in Groupons” (dun dun dun).
This week, we’ll be visiting the Hammurabi Family Restaurant in El Cajon, CA. Hammurabi offers a number of Mediterranean foods. They have a pretty massive menu with a little bit of everything. On the back of the menu, they have a number of “Feast” meals depending on the number of people in your party.
Well, let me tell you – I think the numbers are off! You’ll see what I mean…
Jake and T were with me for this outing, so we figured we’d just get the Feast for Three People to share between the three of us.
The hummus was the first thing to come out to us. Very smooth with a good creamy consistency with a daub of olive oil on top and (I think) a large sprinkle of paprika. It was a little bit bland. There wasn’t a lot of seasoning or other flavors added – just a plain hummus.
[Lavash Flat Bread]
We got a big basket of lavash bread to go with the hummus. Pita bread is what I’m used to getting at other restaurants but the lavash bread was okay. Just a basic bread.
Salad came out to us next looking very fresh and green. Lots of tomatoes and cucumbers mixed in with some leafy greens. The dressing on this salad was extremely tart though – way too much of the acidic element was put into the dressing. And since the whole salad was coated with the dressing, after a few bites we gave up eating it. Luckily the “Feast” was coming up next after a few disappointing starters.
I found this place by accident. Jake, T and I were at Fred’s in El Cajon and I wanted something … Continue reading king of nablus sweets / el cajon – san diego, ca
