Phoenix, Arizona 85032
Your one-stop shop for Middle Eastern treats
Yusef's has it all: eat-in, eat-out, deli items, an olive bar, and grocery store; what more could one ask for when you're hungry for great Mediterranean food?
Best of all, the restaurant is very veg-friendly.
Start with the appetizers: Fava beans, Huummus, Baba, Falafel, Spinach pie, Dolmas, Assorted Pickles and Olives, Lentil Soup, and a combination plate.
Salads are all vegetarian: Greek Salad, Tabouli, Tahini, and a Yogurt Cucumber Salad.
For sandwiches, the veg options are a Veggie (with lettuce, tomato, onion), and Falafel; both served in pita bread.
For entrees, you'll find an appetizer combo platter, a Dolma platter (served with garbanzo beans), and a Falafel plate.
And unlike other Mediterranean restaurant/delis in town (with the ultra-cheap, stackable black metal chairs), you can actually sit in a bona fide booth at Yusef's, and peer out the large windows at the traffic on Cave Creek Rd.
It's all good at Yusef's!
Note: The grocery store and deli opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 8 pm Monday - Saturday. Everything is closed on Sunday.
