Maroosh

223 Valencia Ave
The soul of Maroosh is its familiar yet thoroughly delicious Middle Eastern fare — hummus, dolmades, kibeh, kebabs, baklava. You might assume they are so overly popular that nobody would order them. But they do. And you should too.Try the juicy dolmades, which comprise ground lamb and a small amount of rice wrapped in grape leaves and served with terrific house made yogurt. Or opt for the small, empanada-like pies filled with meat, cheese, or refreshingly lemony spinach.
The baklava is a must-have for dessert. It’s a great rendition — light and flaky pastry, lots of honey-bound walnuts, sweet but not insipid, elegant rather than homey. This dish alone shows why Maroosh is so popular.
