Emily’s Lebanese Deli is one of the closer restaurants to our home. It’s known for comfort Lebanese food and from being on the Food Network. Above is the Tabouli (traditional salad of parsley, tomatoes, onions, cracked wheat, lemon juice oil & spices, $3.25).
Their glass case showcases their meat pies, spinach pies, tabouli, olives, pita bread and more.
Above is the small salad with feta (lettuce, tomatoes, housemade garlic salad dressing, $4.50).
Above is the Samak Harra (Spicy Fish, Sautéed Tilapia fillet topped with garlic, cilantro, pureed tomatoes, onions and spicy seasonings, served with potatoes, $11).
Above is the Lebanese Chicken & Rice (chunks of chicken breast, lamb, rice and pine nuts seasoned with cinnamon & butter and simmered, $9.50).
Above is the Lebanese Green Beans (Green beans stewed with chunks of lamb onions & tomato paste, served with rice, $9.50).
Above is the Burger, Meat Pie and Grape Leaves. The Spinach Pie isn’t shown but was my favorite dish. Next up I’ll have to try their kabobs!
