Best Mediterranean: Aladdin's Eatery

From the Best Mediterranean: Aladdin's Eatery edition

What could be better than ultra-creamy hummus and mildly spiced, non-greasy falafel? How about using those ingredients - and fresh veggies - as toppings on a pizza? At Aladdin's, your favorite Mediterranean flavors can be enjoyed in that circular format on a variety of different Pita Pitzas.

If you're craving classic dishes like kibbie and shawarma, though, you'll find plenty of more traditional menu items. And the Aladdin's Favorite Combo offers the chance to try three different entrees at once: Beef Kafta, Shish Kabob and Chicken Tawook.
