“We heard good things,” I said to the host who greeted us at lunchtime. He smiled and showed Danica to marble topped table and a bench of colourful cushions. Then the delicious started to happen, Egyptian style. Maha’s
Our coffees in tall glasses arrived promptly while we looked at the menu. Fresh brewed,full-bodied and perfect. We flipped the menu over from the entrée listings to check out the sandwiches.
I think we we would have loved any of the choices but the Mind-Blowing Chicken did indeed blow our minds, it was so tasty. We also split The Max, which came in a balady bread pita. It was stuffed with two of the best falafels I can remember having (well, one, actually. Danica had the other one). There were sliced, boiled eggs in there too, along with sweet vidalia onions, foole (a nutritious stew of fava beans) and homemade tehina sauce.
My food photos did not do justice to our lunch, so I refer you to a better site for more information. We will be going back to Maha’s and we’ll be bringing friends. Hours are a bit restrictive for evenings. They open early every day (8:00 a.m.) except Wednesdays (closed), but evenings they close at 7:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
There are not a lot of tables in this little neighbourhood café, so many of their customers must drop in for take-out meals. This place is a little gem and we can walk to it!
